Virginia Beach Estate Planning Lawyer

In estate planning, the future is now. The larger an estate the more important it is to have a sound will in place before your death. However, even individuals with small estates should consult an experienced Virginia Beach lawyer for assistance with estate planning. At Kristen M. Shannon, P.C., we can help you protect your family's future through the right will, trust, or combination of the two.

Plan for tomorrow, today

We attend to all legal matters pertaining to your estate, such as—

  • Creating a will or trust
  • Creating living wills (advanced medical directives)
  • Guardianships
  • Conservatorships
  • Powers of attorney
  • Will administration
  • Trust administration

We identify the will or trust that best fits your needs and then draft a customized estate plan detailing your wishes in a clear and legally sound manner. This is the best way to ensure that your estate is distributed according to your preferences.


A will settles your debts and distributes your property and finances as directed. For individuals with minor children, a will can appoint guardians for their care. Ultimately, a properly prepared will may reduce estate expenses and limit any conflict between beneficiaries by clearly stating how, when, and to whom your estate will be dispersed.


A living trust allows you to avoid probate, provide for management of your affairs during incapacitation, and plan for the long-term allocation of your estate. If a trust fits your needs, I can draft the legal documents creating the trust and help you identify and appoint a trustee or trust administrator.
