Culloden is a census-designated place (CDP) in West Virginia. Most of Culloden is in Cabell County, with the remainder in Putnam County. As of the 2000 census, the CDP population was 2,940 (2,475 in Cabell County, 465 in Putnam County). The Cabell County portion of Culloden is part of the Huntington-Ashland, WV-KY-OH Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the Putnam County portion is considered part of the Charleston, WV Metropolitan Statistical Area. The community was named by L. R. White, who lost a leg while working for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad. White was asked to name the town upon the establishment of its post office and train station; he suggested "Culloden" because there were so few places with that name in the United States.

What is estate planning and probate law?

Estate planning is the process of anticipating and arranging for the disposal of an estate. Estate planning typically attempts to eliminate uncertainties over the administration of a probate and maximize the value of the estate by reducing taxes and other expenses. Estate planning attorneys advise clients on their options for disposition of real and personal property after death, and create any number of necessary documents pertaining to the estate and finances of the client -- including wills and trusts. Estate planning law attorneys also assist clients in setting out their end-of-life health care wishes through living wills and health care powers of attorney.
