My Plan

My Plan is a solution if you are looking for a simple, less expensive way to complete your estate plan.

My Plan was created to fill the gap that I see for regular people like you who need an estate plan. Many hardworking Virginians know they need to get this done, but they don’t want to pay for a lawyer to do it for them. I get it. I have designed my entire law practice around helping people have access to legal services who cannot afford full-priced lawyers. However, even with my reduced prices, I find that there are some who still want to pay less.

Those looking for bargain-priced estate planning will sometimes decide to use online legal templates. This can be risky because these templates are not always compliant with Virginia law, and because the websites that sell them do not adequately explain how to use them. If you aren’t careful, using a template to create legal documents can have dire results.

Another problem is that templates might be a good start to an estate plan, but estate planning is much more than simply creating a will.

My Plan was created to fill these gaps so that everyone can access quality information and create an estate plan that is both affordable and compliant with Virginia law.

My Plan takes a comprehensive approach.

My Plan gives you step-by-step instructions that are simple and easy to follow.

I have created worksheets to help you work through the decision-making process and to leave valuable instructions to your loved ones.

For some topics, I have even provided audio instructions to give you more information and walk you through more complicated topics.

I have included “Common Questions” that I get from clients in my law practice.

And, you can provide feedback to the site or request that additional content be added.

In summary, My Plan gives you:

  • Step-by-step instructions to help you create your estate plan.
  • Virginia-compliant templates to create your will, power of attorney document, and advance medical directive with up-to-date text based on Virginia’s current laws.
  • Worksheets to help you create your plan and leave end-of-life instructions to your loved ones.
  • Clear instructions and answers to a variety of questions.
  • Audio explanations by me, a licensed attorney who practices estate planning.
  • A “help” option that allows you to suggest additional content for the site.
  • Unlimited access to the membership site that houses all of this information and more for 6 months so you have plenty of time to create your plan.
