Create an Estate and Elder Plan So You

Can Face the Future with Confidence 

Use a combination of legal tools, such as wills, trusts, and powers of attorney, to

take control of your future, protect your assets, and provide for your loved ones. 

The Future Can Be Scary. If You Don’t Have a Plan, You Risk:

  • Neglect or abuse
    • Not having enough money as you age
      • Making things hard for your family
        • Paying too much in taxes
          • The state taking over
            • People fighting over your possessions

            Being unprepared isn’t worth the risk.

  • Inviting neglect or abuse
  • Making things hard for your loved ones
  • Paying unnecessary taxes
  • Allowing the government to interfere
  • Failing to provide for yourself and your family
  • Giving others an opportunity to fight over your estate

Being unprepared isn’t worth the risk.

“Our Best Legal Experience.

We have been talking (and talking, and talking) about finishing our wills for several years. Josh made the process so easy and was so informative that we finished the process with one visit and then the signing. I am amazed and relieved.”

Outstanding Legal Services

We hired Josh to write a will, advanced medical directive, and power of attorney for my wife and I. From the initial consultation until delivery of the final certified documents, Josh’s service was outstanding. He explained everything clearly, kept us informed throughout the process, and delivered a binder not only with the documents, but with complete explanations and instructions for the use of each one. I recommend him wholeheartedly.


Estate Planning Made Easy

Josh and his team were very helpful in walking my wife and I through the process of creating our wills and power of attorney. He was easy to work with and very professional.


Outstanding, professional estate planning services

It had been many years since we updated our will and we engaged Joshua to help us bring everything up to date. Joshua developed a draft will for myself and my wife, as well as advance medical directive and financial power of attorney documents. The documents that Joshua and his staff developed for us are extremely professional with copious cites to pertinent Virginia statutes. Josh delivered the finished product in a very nice binder and followed up with a call to go over everything and respond to any final questions concerning the documents. In addition, he provided advice on the do’s and don’ts of storing and executing the documents. In summary, it’s hard to envision a more professional and effective legal team than Josh and his staff in the estate planning area of the law.


Estate Planning

Josh Hummer’s office was recommended to us by our church ( My wife & I went to Josh for assistance to prepare our estate plan (family trust, last will & testament, health care directive and power of attorney). He provided personalized service, listened to our needs, gave sound advice and provided feedback on our requests. The documents were prepared professionally and quickly, and he followed up on the ancillary items necessary to finalize all the details. This gives us peace of mind that our wishes will be followed, with minimal interaction with the state. I would use them again and recommend them for any legal services that may be necessary.


Estate Planning

I want to thank Josh Hummer for all he did for my husband and myself in planning our wills. He was very informative and down to earth about answers to all our questions we had and also with the follow up and more questions we had, We could not have asked for a better resource or a better person to help us, Would highly recommend him and his office staff to anyone.


Accounting and Closing of Family Estate

Josh assisted me with the affairs and closing of my mother’s estate. After my mother’s death, I did not have a clue what I needed to do. Josh and his staff were very helpful and professional . They guided me and advised me with the accounting and sale of the estate. A job I could not have done on my own. Josh and his staff took care of business in a timely and orderly manner. He and his staff were friendly and very accountable. They eased my fear and made my job easy! I would have lost a lot of the benefits as executor and would have faced some unpleasant confrontations without them. If you are left as the executor of your family’s estate and need assistance, I highly recommend Joshua Hummer and his amazing staff.


Great experience

Mr. Hummer and his team were helpful and knowledgeable. We had a very positive experience!


Estate planning excellence!

We recently had the opportunity to receive advice on revisions to our legal documents with Josh. The process was easy and extremely informative to complete our will, power of attorney, and advanced medical directive. We feel very confident in the advice that was given and very pleased with the process to complete these necessary changes. Josh is very willing to work with his clients in a “no pressure” environment. This was reassuring and remained constant throughout the process. Once the process was complete, we had the opportunity to meet his staff and can truly say they made us feel very welcome. The process to sign was well orchestrated and uncomplicated. We highly recommend Josh Hummer for your legal service needs.



Josh provided clear and concise recommendations about estate documents that we required. He provided an updated will and power of attorney and medical directive at a reasonable price. Office staff was most friendly and helpful.
