Virginia residents and others may wonder if having a will is good enough to constitute an estate plan. For some, the answer may be yes. However, this depends on a person's needs and goals, both while alive and after passing. If someone merely wants to transfer his or her belongings to family members upon death, a will can be an effective tool. Of course, it may not be the most efficient manner to accomplish this task.

Consequences of a second DUI conviction in Virginia

With the holiday season in full-swing, it is common to be spending time with family, reuniting with friends or attending work parties. These festive gatherings will typically have plenty of food, fun and maybe even alcohol. As you may already be aware, the holiday season is a time when DUI arrests increase dramatically. If you are not already taking the proper steps to stay safe while driving this holiday season, you should seriously consider doing so. Especially, if you already have a DUI on your record. A second DUI in Virginia will cause you to receive harsher penalties than your first.
