Elder Law Attorney
Jessica is an estate planning and elder law attorney at Cunningham Dalman, PC. She has been with the firm over 16 years and practicing as an attorney since 2012. Her primary focus is planning for persons as they age to make sure that their assets are passed to their loved ones through the creation of wills or trusts. This planning extends to establishing a team to care for a person when they can no longer care for themselves, through health and financial powers of attorney. Finally, Jessica advises families who are seeking answers on care options available for an aging loved one, including what benefit programs are available to pay for such care, such as Medicaid and the VA Aid & Attendance benefit. She provides comprehensive advice to families looking for answers, as well as explains and offers planning solutions to get the benefits needed to help pay for care.
