Invested. Caring. Professional.

What Makes A Legacy?

There are two aspects to your legacy: the memories you made with your loved ones and the assets you leave for them. Building memories happen on its own, but securing your assets and legacy for your family demands attention and care.

Having built Rowe & Sitzler, LLP, with her father, attorney Emily Rowe Sitzler understands the value of family legacy. She works with her neighbors across Bedford to handle the often-complex state of Virginia estate planning. It’s a complex area of the law, and we have the experience and know-how to make it a little easier on you.

Estate Plans Are For Everyone

One thing many of our clients tell us when we talk about estate planning is that it may not be “worth it.” People believe that since they may only have a modest financial legacy, they don’t have a reason to sort out their estate plan. This is far from the truth.

Any person with any amount of assets would benefit from an estate plan. It is a group of documents that include:

  • Trusts
  • Wills
  • Advance directives
  • Powers of attorney

But it’s more than that. It can control the costs of probate. It can help guide your family when they are struggling to understand what the next step should be.

Guiding You Through Probate Court

In most cases, at least to a certain extent, every estate may have to contend with the probate court. However, we can offer you a clear picture of what may happen with your probate case. Attorney Rowe Sitzler has many years of experience in probate law issues and works diligently to pursue her clients’ needs.

Additionally, she can provide you with the necessary information regarding guardianships and how probate works with adoption.

Comprehensive. Clear. Compassionate.

Resolving any estate planning question is difficult and can be painful. Attorney Rowe Sitzler provides our clients with the care and attention they deserve to help them move forward, whether it is to build their estate plans or resolve a probate dispute.
