Virginia was new to me as I faced a complex situation after the death of my last surviving parent, not excluding sisters that continued to be estranged and difficult, as I knew all about the estate in assisting my mother a few years before and they did not. She had a large estate. I definitely needed the help. That help was fortuitously found in Virginia. She was everything I could ask for during this trying time. I found her online and when I called, and she actually answered the phone! The voice was calm and reassuring. She provided excellent leadership, very good organization, kind guidance, had an executive articulate succinct style, timeliness, manners, worked well with another attorney my sisters had endorsed, spoke well of the other attorney, followed-up well to anything not getting done, kept prompt and timely billing, and was very professional! I felt apart of the A team and that I would get through this.
I would definitely recommend her!
