*CELA (Certified Elder Law Attorney)
Although not a requirement, Wendy H. Sheinberg has taken the additional steps necessary to become a Certified Elder Law Attorney. This certification is awarded after passing a six hour exam and satisfying strict criteria by The National Elder Law Foundation, which is not affiliated with any governmental authority, but is recognized by the ABA (American Bar Association). New York State does not mandate that this certification is necessary to practice law and feels that it does not necessarily indicate greater competence than other attorneys experienced in this field of law.

Her knowledge, expertise and experience are constantly fine tuned and expanded, ensuring quality legal advice which leads to lasting solutions for her much valued clients.
