Felicia Pasculli Esq.
Felicia Pasculli, Esq., CELA is a law partner at Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP concentrating in the areas of Elder Law & Special Needs Law, Trusts and Estates, and Veterans Law.
Joining the firm in 2018, Felicia Pasculli takes great pride in having introduced the area of VA pension benefits to the Elder Law bar in 2001.
She is certified as an elder law attorney ("CELA") by the American Bar Association accredited National Elder Law Foundation, one of approximately 500 nationwide and has been selected as the best Long Island Elder Law attorney by BEST LAWYERS®, designated a "NY Metro Area Top 50 Women Lawyer" by her peers through Super Lawyers and selected as a Super Lawyer for a continuous decade.
Felicia Pasculli chose to specialize in this area of law after seeing how our culture's bureaucratic systems failed her own father, a veteran, and her mother, both of whom suffered from dementia. She has since devoted her career advocating for the rights of elders, including those with dementia or cognitive impairments, children with special needs and veterans.
