Commissioners of Accounts
The judges of each circuit appoint attorneys as Commissioners of Accounts to provide “general supervision of all fiduciaries admitted to qualify in such court or before the clerk thereof and make all ex parte settlements of their accounts.” Virginia Code § 26-8. Commissioners of Accounts maintain their own offices, accounts and records, and may charge fees for the services they perform. The circuit court appointing the Commissioner of Accounts sets the fees that may be charged.
