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 (GAL), and estate and trust administration. She is a trained elder law mediator as well as an experienced litigator in the areas of guardianship, adult-at-risk restraining orders, elder abuse cases, and trusts and probate matters.
