Julia L. Santo
Julia's passion for Elder Law runs deep. Julia began her career working with the aging population a decade ago at the Babylon Beach House, an assisted living residence on Long Island. The deep personal connections Julia forged with the residents during her time there helped her realize that her calling in life was to become an advocate for the aging population. She credits her time at the Beach House with molding her into the devoted, kind, and compassionate attorney she is today.
Julia is admitted to practice law in the State of New York. She is a member of the New York City Bar Association as well as the New York State Bar Association. An active New York State Bar Association member, Julia is currently serving as the Vice Co-Chair of the Continuing Legal Education Committee of the Trusts and Estates Section. She is also a member of the Medicaid Committee within the Elder Law and Special Needs Section.
Julia graduated cum laude from Binghamton University with a Bachelor of Science in Human Development. Julia then received her Juris Doctor from the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. During her time at Hofstra, she served as the Head Research Editor for the American College of Trust and Estates Law Journal, a high-level academic journal for practitioners of trusts and estates law.
Julia often gives presentations on Elder Law and estate planning topics. She has presented to senior groups, including for PSS (Presbyterian Senior Services), for the Westchester County Senior Law Day Collaborative, and for numerous assisted living residences in New York City and Westchester County. She has also given Continuing Education courses to Social Workers.
When out of the office, Julia enjoys serving her community, including helping to fundraise for and participate in several Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease events. Julia is lover of all animals and is always eager to share photos with clients and colleagues of her handsome dog, Harry, and her two cats, Ella and Franklin.
