“I have had the pleasure of working with Fran Hampton on many diverse issues over the last several years. My involvement with Mrs. Hampton began in 2009 when I discovered that my elderly grandmother was delinquent in filing tax returns for the preceding five years and was in danger of having her assets seized. The first thing that Mrs. Hampton did was to notify the Commonwealth of Virginia and the IRS that they were no longer allowed to contact my grandmother, which provided much needed relief. From that point Mrs. Hampton worked to file the delinquent tax returns in a very careful, but expeditious manner. Perhaps most importantly, Mrs. Hampton was successful in getting all penalties and fees waived by both the IRS and the Virginia Department of Taxation.
Mrs. Hampton further assisted my grandmother with her estate planning and then assisted me with the administration of that estate and reaching agreement with the heirs as to equalization of assets and avoiding potential conflicts. From the beginning of the estate planning to the filing of the final tax returns of the estate Mrs. Hampton provided service that exceeded all of my expectations.
Throughout all of my dealings with Mrs. Hampton she has consistently gone above and beyond her job responsibilities and far surpassed my experiences with other attorneys. She is easy to contact, patient with explaining complicated matters, and makes her clients feel like they are part of the process.
I consider Mrs. Hampton to be my family’s attorney and have referred several of my family members to her, all of whom have been very pleased with her work. I offer Mrs. Hampton my highest recommendation.”
