Richard B. Turbiville
All lawyers can talk and ask questions; but, to listen (really listen) to your client and others is a special art, which I believe I have developed over many years of practice.
- Richard B. Turbiville
For more than 48 years, Mr. Turbiville has successfully represented clients in family law matters, including divorce, child custody, child support, possession, modifications of prior orders, termination of parental rights, adoption, paternity, enforcement of prior court orders and Child Protective Services involvement. He is skilled at handling large, complex property cases.
Mr. Turbiville’s knowledge of community and separate property law, personal property law, contract law, real estate law, business association law and rules regarding employee benefits, combined with his years of experience handling family law cases, have made him successful. He strives to inform his clients about all aspects of their case.
He believes that a sincere effort should be made to resolve family law cases through a fair settlement of all the disputes and issues, utilizing mediation, if necessary – particularly if there are children involved.
He offers clients expertise in connection with the preparation of cohabitation agreements, premarital agreements and (during marriage) marital property agreements.
Mr. Turbiville also practices estate planning and probate law. He prepares wills, trusts, statutory durable powers of attorney (financial), medical powers of attorney, directives to physicians and family (living wills), HIPAA authorizations, appointments of guardian, and burial directives. He handles the probate of the estates of persons passing away, whether with or without a will.
