About Jeannie Jennings Coder


Virginia Estate Planning Firm

Jeannie Jennings Coder
Director of Clients Services & Firm Manager

Jeannie graduated from George Mason University with a degree in Social Work and has over 20 years of related work experience. A Virginia native, Jeannie grew up in Richmond and spent much of her early adult life in Northern Virginia before moving to Charlottesville in 2007.

Though she joined the firm in 2013, Jeannie’s first association with us was as a client. Jeannie sought our guidance in 2010 as she navigated the complex responsibilities entrusted to her as the Legal Guardian and Conservator for her grandparents. As such, she personally understands the significance of sufficient Estate Planning and the potentially devastating consequences when a plan is absent. She is sensitive to the unique needs of our clients because she has had firsthand experience as a client herself. Jeannie is an active elder advocate and often speaks on the issues of Elder Abuse and Alzheimer’s disease. She has published several pieces regarding these issues as well.

Together, Jeannie and her husband have three grown children and a precious feline named Mia.

Met when needed legal assistance for multiple family issues. Defined and proceeded to structure medical, trusts and will to protect wife, son, and grandchildren. Also, have amended my trust and feel it’s important to join the C.F.C. Plan [the Client and Family Care Plan] for other expected services.
You owe it to your beneficiaries to have your life’s/death’s plans defined.

Lovely, beautiful people. Jeannie is always friendly and pleasant and informative. The office has perfect lighting, and we’re always offered tea or coffee. The whole experience, though it could be a time of anxiety, becomes a very loving, relaxing experience. Who knew that taking care of our family’s future and “late” life business could be such a nurturing, caring experience?
