Susan I. Jean, The Heritage Law Group / York County

 Susan Jean focuses her practice in the area of elder law and estate planning as a result of a family history of both dementia and cancer. She enjoys the process of bringing her knowledge of the law and community resources to bear in crafting a plan that will work for her clients and her client’s family.  

Ms. Jean provides families with representation regarding long term care, Medicaid and Veteran's Benefits, as well as expertise on capacity issues, elder abuse, financial concerns, and other areas of law of primary interest to elders. She assists those concerned with the high cost of care to plan for ways to pay for care, as well as ways to qualify for government benefits without becoming impoverished.

Ms. Jean has practiced as an attorney on the Peninsula since 1993. One of her passions is public speaking; she is a frequent lecturer, and has taught various elder law subjects to other lawyers, CPAs and accountants, and financial professionals, for continuing credit. She enjoys speaking to community groups on a wide variety of subjects related to elder law and estate planning.

Ms. Jean currently sits on the Board of Directors for Peninsula Agency on Aging, and is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA). She is past president of the Virginia Chapter of NAELA, and was pleased to be elected twice as President of the York-Poquoson Bar Association. She has been on the Board of Directors for the ARC of the Virginia Peninsula, the Peninsula Pastoral Counseling Center, and Williamsburg Area Meals on Wheels.
