Jodie Patalano joins the firm with more than 10 years of experience and was able to make a seamless transition to our Medicaid department as a Medicaid Paralegal.  Ms. Patalano collaborates with clients and their families as well as the firm’s attorneys to ensure that all Medicaid applications are thoroughly compiled before they are submitted.  She treats her clients with the respect and kindness they deserve through this complicated and sometimes, emotional process.  In addition, she drafts estate planning documents for the firm.

Ms. Patalano worked at another Elder Law firm prior to joining Davidow, Davidow, Siegel & Stern doing similar work.  In her early career, she was a preschool teacher which obviously contributed to her patient and kind demeanor.  She has a Paralegal certificate from Suffolk County Community College.

When Jodie is not working, she enjoys spending quality time with her family.
