Wills & Trusts

Henrico County Living Will Attorney

Estate planning is an essential part of life. It is important that you have documents and designations in place that can communicate your wishes for medical care, financial maintenance and asset distribution in the event that you cannot communicate these wishes yourself due to incapacitation or death.

Wills and trusts are important tools that our attorneys at Spinella, Owings & Shaia, P.C. work to put in place for our clients. We take the time to assess each client's needs and goals, tailoring our estate planning approach to fit their specific situation. Contact us at our Richmond, Virginia, office to schedule your confidential consultation.


If you have a legal will in place, your assets can be protected and distributed according to your wishes if you pass away. We are committed to helping our clients compose a comprehensive will that takes into account all aspects of their estate.

We also handle the creation of living wills. Sometimes referred to as advance health care directives, a living will is a document that provides details on how you wish to be medically treated in the event that you are unable to communicate your wishes.


Another type of protection for your assets and estate is called a trust. Having an established and funded trust may help to avoid some estate taxes and the probate process. Your trust can help you ensure that your assets and property are preserved and passed on to the right beneficiaries. The trust documents can specify how and when the assets are distributed. We handle the creation of all types of trusts, including:

  • Revocable trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Living trusts
  • Charitable trusts
  • Special needs trusts
  • Testamentary trusts
