About Stephen

Learn Stephen’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Elder law
    Oast & Taylor can work with you to establish a comprehensive Long-term Care Plan that balances financially sound advice with the quality of care your loved one requires by preserving assets and providing a plan for the payment of long-term care needs. We can evaluate your eligibility for other sources of payment, such as long-term care insurance and Medicaid.

  2. Estate planning
    What would happen to your family should you unexpectedly pass away or face a period of significant disability? It is in our nature to want to protect our loved ones from harm and distress and to protect what we have worked a lifetime to acquire. Estate Planning gives you the freedom to say that you have all of your personal affairs in order.

  3. Probate
    Oast & Taylor’s Estate and Trust attorneys can help you with the administration of the estate or trust. If you have been named as an Executor and/or Trustee to perform one of these functions, you may have legal responsibilities to many parties. I can assist you with the administrative duties that come with these responsibilities.

  4. Guardianship
    Unfortunately, due to advanced age, dementia or other illness, those we care for become, over time, unable to care for themselves and make their own decisions. If the individual has not executed a Power of Attorney and Advance Medical Directive, the last resort available to ensure that the individual has good financial, health, social, and quality-of-life decisions, made on their behalf is to petition for Guardianship or Conservatorship.

Stephen Taylor earned his Juris Doctor, magna cum laude, from the University of Richmond School of Law, where he served as Allen Chair Editor of the University of Richmond Law Review. He was a member of the John Marshall Inn of Court and was inducted into the Omicron Delta Kappa leadership honor society. Stephen’s primary practice areas include Elder Law, Estate Planning, Business Planning, Estate and Trust Administration, and litigation in support of these practice areas. Stephen is licensed to practice in Virginia and North Carolina.
