“Very Personable

Mr. Hummer drew up a will, advanced directive and a power of attorney for me recently. He is a very personable attorney; he took the time to get to know me and we had a great conversation! His staff was very friendly and his office was immaculate. I would highly recommend Mr. Hummer if you are looking for an attorney!”

“Forward-Thinking

Finding a forward-thinking attorney in this area is a challenge. I have consulted with Mr. Hummer recently on a few business issues and since then have employed his services to work on some unrelated financial matters. His promptness, attention to detail, and progressive nature is highly appreciated by my staff and myself.”

“We first hired Mr. Hummer to help resolve an ongoing property dispute between our business and a neighboring institution.

Being business owners and having dealt with a number of attorneys over the years, we can’t say enough good things about our experience with Mr. Hummer. He took the time to listen and understand our perspective, was honest in his assessment, paid close attention to important details, and never surprised us with any bills for services rendered.

After our positive experience with him in that matter, he has advised us on a host of issues. Whenever a sensitive matter has arisen where our money, career, or reputation has been tested, it’s a relief to have someone we know we can trust.

In a community where there are a number of lawyers to choose from and in a profession where reputation is everything, you can’t go wrong by retaining Mr. Hummer and the level of dedicated service he provides.

We highly recommend seeking his counsel and will continue to do so for years to come.”

A DECADE OF DEDICATION

Joshua E. Hummer

I have been practicing law in the Winchester, Virginia area for over a decade.

My legal work has encompassed a wide variety of areas, including corporate formation, contracts, employment matters, real estate, land use, collecting receivables, and litigation.

I have also assisted many clients with elder care, estate planning, and estate administration, including wills and trusts, the appointment of guardians and conservators, and the probate process.

After 11 years at a local law office, establishing my own law firm was a natural next step. I am committed to helping you achieve your goals, and solve your problems.

I am a lifelong Virginia resident, and actively participate in both professional associations and volunteer organizations.

I am also invited to speak at organizational meetings, conferences and seminars on a variety of topics. These have included elder care matters, end-of-life care and business coaching.

I live in Winchester, Virginia with my wife, Jill, and my four children.
