About Veronica E. Williams

Veronica E. Williams, EsqA 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 has limited her legal practice to a combination of 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 professionally 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: Elder Advocacy, Powers of Attorney, Wills, Trusts & Estates, Guardianship Proceedings, Advocacy in Hospital Settings (challenging inappropriate hospital sponsored guardianships and involuntary notices of discharge), Long Term Care Coordination (Including Crisis Medicaid Cases), and End-of-Life Counseling and Advocacy.

In 2016, the Chief Justice of the Virginia Supreme Court appointed Veronica to serve as an advisory member of the Virginia Working Interdisciplinary Network of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS). In 2014, the Governor of Virginia appointed Veronica to serve as a board member of both the Commonwealth Council on Aging (CCOA), and the Virginia Public Guardianship and Conservatorship Board (PGCAB); Veronica served, as a gubernatorial appointee, for over five (5) years, and during her time of service, she was elected twice to serve as Chair of the CCOA, and twice to serve as Vice-Chair of the PGCAB.

Veronica is a frequent teacher and speaker on the topics of Elder Law & Estate Planning, and she has served as an organizer and presenter at various continuing legal education conferences. She has served as a board member for the Virginia Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, and her professional perspectives have been published in the Daily Press Newspaper, the Virginia Lawyers Weekly, and the Richmond Times Dispatch.
