Virginia Wills, Trusts & Estates PLC is a Virginia law firm, located in the Pantops Mountain area of Charlottesville, Virginia. Attorneys Mark Nelson, Chase Sandridge, and our of counsel colleague Wendall L. Winn, Jr., as well as an experienced staff provide legal services and advice in two distinct areas: Estate Planning and Estate Administration. Our Pantops Mountain location is convenient to all parts of Charlottesville, Albemarle, and Central Virginia.


ESTATE PLANNING is the process through which a client thoughtfully and deliberately plans the transfer of his wealth through wills, trusts, beneficiary designations and other tools and strategies that might be available.

ESTATE ADMINISTRATION is the process through which the loved ones of a decedent settle the decedent’s estate consistent with the terms of the decedent’s last will and testament, revocable trust, agreement and other techniques used by the decedent and in a manner consistent with Virginia’s probate laws and the federal tax system.

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that Tom Nolan, the founder of our firm, passed away on Tuesday, August 18th, after a two-year long battle with cancer. He was a good man, a preeminent attorney in his field, and a person of strong faith. He will be deeply missed by many people - his family, all of us who work at Virginia Wills, Trusts & Estates, his clients, his colleagues in the legal profession and in the business community, his church family, and countless others. You can read Tom's letter about his succession plan for the firm here.

The family will hold a memorial service at a later date. Information about the service will be posted on Tom’s Caringbridge site when it is available.
