Charlottesville Welcome Book Winter 2016

Becoming a Local

Charlottesville is a fabulous place to live with excellent schools, health care and arts. We're in central Virginia, surrounded by gentle rivers, green pastures, mild seasons and an easy drive to Washington, D.C., or the Atlantic coast. Charlottesville is a small city - just over 10.4 square miles, with 45,000 residents - but it has the trappings of a big one. Musical acts and dramatic performances, fine dining, lovely shops - all are available in abundance. Charlottesville is home to diverse job-generating enterprises, from large employers and the government to start-up companies.

MichieHamlett Attorneys At Law

Relocating to a new area is one of the primary reasons to review your estate planning documents. There are some significant differences among state laws so it is a prudent time to review, amend or establish your documents. An estate planning attorney serves as a valuable counselor to advise you on the best means to achieve your testamentary goals. It is particularly important to review titling of assets and beneficiary designations since they affect the disposition of your assets at death. An attorney assists you in understanding your options, helping you make the best decisions for your family's security.
