Frequently Asked Questions

Why Clinch Long Woodbridge Lawyers?

We take the time to learn about your specific and unique circumstances as part of an initial fixed cost consultation.  We will then provide you with a report as to our initial thoughts and recommendations on your estate planning.  We would prefer to do more listening than talking at this initial consultation to fully understand your position and goals.

What if I die without a Will?

Your estate will be managed and disposed of according to succession law in force from time to time.  Aside from the stress and uncertainty this may place on family, there is a risk that your assumed inheritance plan may not occur.  Having a professionally drafted Will means that your chosen Executor can implement your specific intentions and plans.

What can Clinch Long Woodbridge Lawyers help me with in this area?

We can assist you with all aspects of Estate Planning, Probate and Litigation.  From estate and business succession planning, to advising your executors on your death, our firm will work closely with you and your family.  If you are an Executor defending a Will or you have been left out of a Will, we can advise and act for you covering all aspects of your legal rights and obligations.
