Elder Law, Estate Planning, and Special Needs Attorney
Attorney Jessica Liebau enjoys practicing elder law and special needs planning because it allows her to solve complex problems in a creative way.
Jessica is a partner at Wessels & Liebau LLC. She focuses her practice primarily in the areas of elder law, special needs planning, estate planning, guardianship, guardian-ad-litem, and estate and trust administration. She is a trained elder law mediator, although most often these skills are applied to private family meetings, negotiations with care facilities, disputes with government agencies, resolving issues as part of a larger court proceeding, or developing plans that seek to avoid these disputes in the first place. She has extensive courtroom experience, but works to avoid court when unnecessary.
