Trust & Estate; Estate Planning

Let Our Estate Planning Attorneys Keep Your Assets in Order
Planning for the future is an important step, no matter your age or the value of your estate. Without a plan for your enjoyment of life and future protection of assets or interests, or by delaying the planning process, you risk potentially burdening your loved ones; and without an estate planning attorney, your posthumous desires may not be met.

Depend on Any of Our Services
We understand the importance of having a clear and detailed plan. For this reason we proudly extend guidance to our clients with help managing the following:
  • Health Care Powers of Attorney
  • Advance Medical Directives (“Living Wills”)
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Wills
  • Testamentary Trusts
  • Revocable Trusts
  • Family Trust
  • Family Limited Liability Companies
  • Business Succession Planning 
Preserve Wealth for Future Generations
We assist clients with Generation Skipping planning. Our attorneys will help you with your will and the establishment of one or more trusts, including Family Trusts, Qualified Terminable Interest Property (QTIP), Qualified Domestic Trusts (QDOT or QDT) and “Dynasty Trusts”.

Simplicity in an Otherwise Complicated Process
Here at Vandeventer Black, we know that managing your assets is not always a simple process. Our estate planning attorneys will work with you to make it as uncomplicated as possible. We'll start by reviewing an inventory of all of your assets to ensure that nothing is left unattended. Then we'll discuss your lifetime and testamentary goals, family situations and special needs.

From there, we’ll work to outline a plan for you to review and approve. We may recommend that you discuss your decisions with loved ones, so that your intentions don’t come as a surprise. Finally, we’ll discuss taxes and funding your trusts (if appropriate).

Schedule a Consultation
If you would like to speak to someone about your personal estate plan and options, please give us a call or send us an email.  We’ll schedule an initial consultation for you to meet with one of our estate planning attorneys who can answer your questions and help you get started on the planning process. 

We are proud to extend our services to clients living in the Outer Banks and Raleigh, North Carolina, as well as Richmond and Norfolk, Virginia.
