Felicia Pasculli, Esq. concentrates in the areas of Elder Law & Special Needs Law, Trusts and Estates, and Veterans Law. She 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 Assn. accredited National Elder Law Foundation and has been designated a “NY Metro Area Super Lawyer” for ten consecutive years, as well as a Best Lawyer in America. No more than 5% of Metro New York attorneys are selected as Super Lawyers. She is a founder of the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation and the Family Council at the Northport, New York VA Medical Center.
Felicia Pasculli chose to specialize in Elder Law, Special Needs, Estate Law, Trusts and Estates, and Veterans 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.
Felicia serves as a member of the Executive Committee of the Elder Law & Special Needs section of the New York State Bar Association and has served as Secretary of NYNAELA (National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys). She has lectured extensively for NAELA, the NY State Bar Assn., the NYS Women’s Bar Assn., National Organization of Veterans Advocates (NOVA), as well as many other professional groups. Her topics have included the intersection of public benefits, including Medicaid with veterans’ benefits, Trusts, Ethics, and Guardianships. She is accredited to train attorneys for the right to represent veterans before the VA.
