A native of the Virginia peninsula, Veronica Elizabeth Williams began her professional career in the United States Army where she served for five (5) years as a personnel officer. Her experiences included overseas duty and successful completion of the United States Army Parachutist Course (Airborne School).
Upon completing her tour of military service, she entered law school at the College of William & Mary and graduated in 1993.
Veronica limits her legal practice to Estate Planning, the Settlement of Estates, and Advocacy for the Elderly and Infirm, with a special passion for that part of Elder Law that deals with assisting caregivers to be more effective advocates for the loved ones they care for and serve.
Veronica served as her mother’s caregiver off and on for 21 years. Her mother was diagnosed with a long-term chronic illness and she knows how difficult it can be to care for a loved one with health challenges, and to balance that care with competing demands. Over the years, she has shopped for home health care providers, plowed through medical paperwork, puzzled over health care coverage, and experienced first-hand the frustrations of our fragmented health care system. She is passionate about understanding life care planning and estate planning from the perspectives of the client and the caregiver.
Her representation, therefore, is exclusive to clients who seek the following types of legal services:
In 2014, she was appointed by the Governor of Virginia to serve four year terms as a board member on both the Commonwealth Council on Aging, and the Virginia Public Guardianship and Conservatorship Board. She also serves a board member for the Virginia Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. She is a frequent teacher and speaker on the topics of Elder Law & Estate Planning, and her professional perspectives have been published in the Daily Press Newspaper and the Virginia Lawyers Weekly.
