The Estate & Elder Law Center of Southside Virginia announced this week managing attorney Robert W. Haley was named to the Virginia Business Legal Elite List for 2019.
Begun in 2000 as a collaboration with the Virginia Bar Association, Virginia Business annually polls more than 14,000 attorneys in the commonwealth asking them to select from their peers the best lawyers in each practice category. Haley concentrates his practice in elder law and estate planning.
Haley holds what’s known as an AV rating under the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings. It’s the highest rating for ethical standards and professional ability. He also is a Certified Elder Law Attorney, which is the only approved designation for certification by the American Bar Association, through the National Elder Law Foundation.
His firm specializes in elder law concerns such as estate planning, guardianships, estate administration/probate, medicaid planning and asset protection.
One of the few Certified Elder Law Attorneys in Virginia and the only in Southside Virginia, Haley also is included on the Super Lawyers List, a nomination from his peers.
In addition, he has been named a Certified Advanced Practitioner by his peers in the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. Haley is one of only about 90 attorneys with this level of expertise in the nation.
