James J. Gillotti was admitted to the practice of law in Pennsylvania in 1979. After completing a one-year judicial clerkship, he has been in private practice in Lackawanna County since 1980.
In 2012, Mr. Gillotti was certified as an Elder Law Attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation (NELF), the only organization authorized by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to certify Pennsylvania attorneys in Elder Law. The certification is currently held by less than sixty lawyers in the entire state. The requirements that must be met (including passing a difficult day-long written examination) in order to become certified are set forth at www.nelf.org.
