It took me a while to reach out to an attorney because I had minimal knowledge and wasn’t sure I had enough assets to qualify for estate planning. Scott made the process very easy and explained things in terms I could understand and I now have peace of mind for my children should anything happen to me.
Our current wills and trusts were prepared 17 years ago in a different state. We definitely needed to update our estate plan. Scott was very approachable and was very good walking us through the whole process. He was patient and answered all our questions. Scott and his team are personable, smart, and responsive. It’s great to know that we have a trusted resource for assisting with all of our family’s estate planning needs as they arise.
Scott was able to clearly relate our previous estate plan, developed in 2004, to today’s estate tax environment. His estate-planning services have been well-tailored to our 2017 situation and we’re pleased with the updates. Scott and his team kept us well informed throughout the process.
Scott is a pleasure to work with and very detailed in his work. The value that he brings to a relationship is genuine, educational, and thorough. I highly recommend Scott and his team as a great resource in the legal arena.
I first met Scott about 2 years ago at a client event that Scott attended. Turns out he was instrumental in the corporate formation and incorporation of my client! Scott came across genuine and professional right from a first handshake. Since then, Scott has become a client of mine at Cobb Technologies as my company provides office technology equipment for his law firm. I attended a presentation on business law Scott gave to the Goochland County Chamber of Commerce earlier this year to a large crowd. Scott was excellent. So easy to follow, made business law uncomplicated and engaging. His presentation skills were exemplary. Scott understands Wills, Trusts, Business formations and exit strategies. I recommend him to you!
Characteristics that make up a successful attorney include high integrity, knowledge and judgment, client service oriented and professional. Scott Golightly has demonstrated these characteristics to me over the years that I have worked with him.

Scott Golightly is an excellent Estate attorney who spends a considerable amount of time working with each client to structure the best possible plan to meet their personal needs. He has the experience and knowledge to handle various situations and find the best possible solutions.
We had no idea that the amount of work that is left for those who survive you is daunting. Golightly helped us create a great plan and we found peace in the fact that we will have everything organized in one place when the time comes. They were so easy to talk to. We’d absolutely recommend them.
Scott Golightly was great to work with. He and his team exceeded our expectations. We got everything taken care of in a reasonable time without feeling rushed. We have peace of mind and confidence that what we have provided for our children and grandchildren a clear organized plan and that there will be no loose ends when the time comes.
After a very difficult experience with losing my Father in Law very unexpectedly last year, my wife was named Executor of his estate. While at my Father in Law's home trying to help my wife settle his estate, I placed multiple calls to Scott to ask legal questions to ease our minds and Scott was the our savior. As a true friend,not only did he answer our question but spent considerable time pointing out suggestions that would end up making her job as Executor less stressful. The process is far from over but with Scott's guidance we are getting through it. This event prompted us to redo our Wills with Scott to make sure we don't leave our kids in the same kind of mess my wife is experiencing. If you have not looked at your Will in 10 years you really need to talk to Scott.
Scott assisted my wife and I with our estate planning needs after the birth of our 1st child. He has a great approach to making the estate planning process as simple or as complex as the client wants it. Smooth, efficient, and extrememly professional. I would highly recommend him for whatever level of estate planning you may need.
Scott and I have had mutual clients over the years and I have always enjoyed working with him. He is a strong advocate for his clients and is very knowledgeable. I don't hesitate to recommend him to my clients who are in need of legal help in the areas of his expertise.
Scott practices with integrity and with exemplary customer service. I would recommend him without hesitation.
