About Jeremy

3
Practice areas
  1. Estate planning
    65%
    I help guide individuals and couples build a plan not only for how their property is handled after their death, but also for how they can be cared for later in life.

  2. Business
    25%
    I help people start and run successful businesses. With legal guidance from a trusted attorney, business owners can focus on what they do best - running their business.

  3. Probate
    10%
    I help executors and administrators stay organized and on track to efficiently and effectively handle the estates they represent. I also serve as administrator of estates when no one else is able to serve.

I grew up on the Virginia Peninsula and I now serve my home region by helping individuals and families strengthen their relationships and preserve their assets through estate planning, estate administration, guardianship and conservatorship proceedings, and adoptions. Although I am an attorney, teaching is the family profession (both of my parents are retired teachers, and many uncles, aunts, and cousins are or were teachers). Perhaps because of the family history, I love educating clients about the many options available to them and empowering them to make the best decisions for their futures. 

When I am out of the office, I enjoy getting out and attending community events. My wife and I are discovering a new love of hiking and camping (our first camping trip was on the beach at Assateague National Seashore in August 2017).

Helped with Guardianship
Jeremy helped my wife and I obtain a guardianship for our son. He was very knowledgeable and quick to get the guardianship in place. He even made sure that our other son was put in place as standby guardian and helped explain to him what to do if he ever needed to step in.

Attentive and Patient
My mother and I met with Mr. Forrest to go over her estate planning needs. After explaining all of the different documents to us and what they did, he helped my mom by asking her questions about what she wanted and making suggestions for what to include in her Power of Attorney and Advance Medical Directive. He also met with us after the documents were drafted to review them and to make sure that my mom was on board with what she wanted. He also explained to me how and when I needed to use the documents to help my mom.
