Elder Law and Disability Planning


        When medical and financial challenges arise concerning elderly parents, siblings, or other relatives, Barbara Lloyd Kessinger can provide legal assistance to caregivers or to the elderly individuals themselves, depending on the circumstances.  She serves clients of LLOYD LAW, PLLC in Prince William, Fairfax, Fauquier, and Loudoun Counties.


        From a personal standpoint, it is much easier to address many of the needs of senior citizens before they start encountering serious health issues. Open communication between family members helps to ensure proper planning. Documents that have been signed previously by elderly persons should be reviewed by an attorney on a regular basis and then updated as needed.


        From a legal standpoint, a threshold issue may be the capacity of an elderly person to sign documents. Communication with other professionals, including physicians and therapists, is sometimes warranted. Executing legal papers after senior citizens have been diagnosed with disease or illness becomes problematic if not impossible.


        Ms. Kessinger has compassion for elderly individuals with special needs and has empathy for their caregivers. She offers appointments at convenient locations in Northern Virginia and in-home consultations in the Gainesville / Haymarket area.


        Elder Law services include Estate Planning, Special Needs Trusts, Guardianship and Conservatorship, Special Needs Advocacy, and Estate Administration/Probate, topics that are addressed in other sections of this website. Additional information about disability planning is provided during consultations.
