NAELA Council of Advanced Practitioners

A member of the Council of Advanced Practitioners is an attorney who has been nominated and selected by his or her peers — experienced Elder and Special Needs Law attorneys — to be part of the Council as a result of their commitment and contribution to their clients and the ethical, high-quality practice of Elder and Special Needs Law. 

To become a member, the attorney must be a current NAELA member for a minimum

of 10 consecutive years prior to nomination. In addition, a candidate must either:   

    • Hold an AV rating under the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings, the highest rating for ethical standards and professional ability.
    • Be a NAELA Fellow or a Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA), which is the only approved designation for certification by the American Bar Association, through the National Elder Law Foundation.


  • Be a full-time Elder Law professor or a Legal Services attorney.

  • Be a sitting judge.
