Some people have the misconception that estate planning is only for wealthy people with large estates and numerous assets. In reality, when estate planning documents are used correctly, they allow individuals to not only dictate what should happen with their assets, but also how medical or financial decisions should be made on their behalf if they’re unable to make those decisions.
If you are unable to act on your behalf — because of your health or your physical location — estate planning documents can authorize another person to help see that your affairs are kept in order. To help see that your wishes are followed, it’s important to work with an experienced Richmond estate planning attorney who can help you draft the necessary documents.
When you contact the Paullin Law Firm, you will find an attorney who is committed to working with you throughout the process. I have 30 years of experience helping individuals throughout Virginia, and can help you create an estate plan that protects your best interests, including a basic will, living will or advanced medical directive and power of attorney.
The Paullin law firm can provide comprehensive estate planning advice and service. If you are contemplating setting up a family trust, drafting a will, or creating a power of attorney, I can help.

We can create and review your Living Will or advanced medical directive, a simple will, financial and healthcare powers of attorney. Our services include:
People of all incomes and generations can benefit from planning for the future.
Simple estate planning allows you to make important decisions regarding the division of assets, the care of your children, and other important matters, rather than allowing it to pass according to statutory rules. Your future is quite simply too important not to consider estate planning.
