Professional Information

About the Practice
VanderVeen Elder Law was founded on the idea that there are different ways than the traditional law firm to deliver our assistance and expertise to those who need it. Jennifer's own creative thinking and love of just talking out a problem until a solution appears has led to a technology focused client experience with the goal of keeping clients informed about their case and explaining complicated concepts as easily as possible. Her goal is to take the stress out of estate planning and to use her knowledge and experience make Medicaid planning and application process as smooth as possible.
