January 2, 2020

A recent issue of The Legal Intelligencer included a front-page interview with Rochelle “Shelli” Fedullo (Partner-Philadelphia), focusing on the highlights of her year as the organization’s chancellor. 

In the Q&A, Fedullo said that among the most important achievements during her tenure was “participation in the advocacy for right to counsel  for poor people facing eviction” leading to the passage of ground- breaking legislation in Philadelphia. Other key accomplishments included a robust and successful campaign for the election of judicial candidates, which the association rated either recommended or highly recommended , and launching an association-wide mentoring and professional development initiative.  

She also shared how Wilson Elser’s support for her role helped make her successful. 

“I’m really fortunate because my firm…was 100% behind me and it was important,” Fedullo said. “My firm has been so supportive of me. Not just this year, but in past years as I was leading up to being chancellor.”
