Without a last will and testament in Maryland, Washington DC, and Virginia, a person’s estate (a person’s assets that do not pass automatically to another, such as certain bank accounts, vehicles, boats, personal property, and single owner real property) will end up passing through intestate succession. In Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC, when a person creates a will, that person has the opportunity to designate to whom they want their assets to be given to. The wills and estate planning attorneys at Longman & Van Grack assist each of our clients in making those decisions through a last will and testament.

Through a will, our estate planning attorneys ensure that our clients’ intent for their assets is complied with and that they protect those they wish to protect by providing for the after their passing.
