Make sure your hard work pays off.

You’ve been working hard, and now you want to make sure your assets are preserved for your lifetime and for the next generation. But estate planning is complicated, and you need someone you can trust to give you the best advice.

You Need Experienced Front Royal Estate Planning Attorneys

Many lawyers haven’t built up the experience to know the best option for you. They may make false assumptions or cut corners which should be handled with greater care. McCarthy & Akers, however, takes your situation very seriously. We have been proudly delivering excellent service to our clients for 16 years, and we believe in doing things the right way.

Our Attorneys Keep You Fully Informed

In our years of work, we’ve often heard about clients’ frustrations with their previous attorneys. An attorney who doesn’t explain the progress he or she is making, and clarify the next steps, can significantly cloud your peace of mind. McCarthy & Akers, however, holds ourselves to a high level of professionalism: we’ll respond to you within 24 hours of any message and report to you regularly.

You Will Get The Benefit Of An Experienced Attorney Team

No one lawyer can be an expert in everything. But you deserve the best possible treatment, which is why we’ve formed a carefully balanced attorney team that can bring you excellent service. Our members draw on each other’s experience, and formulate arguments with everyone’s input.

What Is "Life Care Planning" And How Does It Make McCarthy & Akers Different?

As An Elder Law Firm That Practices Life Care Planning, We Are Different From Other Firms In Our Goal, Our Method, And Our Structure.

You Can Learn More About The LCPLFA On Their Website.

What You Get From Life Care Planning

Our goal is primarily the quality of life and independence of the elder, rather than the preservation of the elder’s money for the next generation.

How Life Care Planning Supports Your Quality Of Life

Our method is holistic rather than narrow. We can help you to navigate not only legal matters, but also broader financial, medical, and situational problems that arise in elder care.

Why Our Team Is The Right One For You

In keeping with our goal and method, we’ve built our firm upon an interdisciplinary team, rather than upon legal specialists solely.
