Professional, No-nonsense, Experienced & Efficient Approach to Estate Planning
Attorney Patricia Tichenor (Trish) effectively used technology to expeditiously prepare our estate planning documents after we recently moved to Virginia. She patiently explained the documents and options in the context of VA law and our goal to minimize probate hassles and expenses for our heirs.

Her response was quick and she took the time to explain what I needed. She patiently listened to and answered all my questions, making me feel like I was her only client. (She also explained that she would be available for questions my executors might have after I pass. That, for me, is important. I didn’t want the execution of my will to be a burden.)

In our mid-seventies, my husband and decided it was high time we got our affairs in order. We found Patricia on the internet, read the reviews and contacted her with our needs for wills, powers of attorney, living will etc. She was very responsive and though she was out of town, we telecommunicated with her regarding our wishes. She came back quickly with draft documents that required only minor changes that expressed our wishes plus her expert legal advice. We finally got to meet her when we went to sign the documents. We have peace of mind along with the gratitude of our daughters. I can highly recommend Patricia for her thoroughness in helping us through this process.

We have used Patricia Tichenor, PLLC twice to help us complete our estate planning process by providing us with legal advice and then drawing up wills for my husband and myself. Both times she was very thorough and answered all questions we had. The first will was when our children were minors so she helped us make sure everything was set up that they would be well taken care of if something were to happen to my husband and myself. The second time she helped us update the will to reflect the changes we wanted as all our children are now over 21. This updated included a special trust for one child. We will no doubt be back to see her again in another 5 years to update our wills once again. We highly recommend this office.
