Rochelle “Shelli” M. Fedullo, a litigator and partner with Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker LLP, has infused two decades of Association leadership with energy, creativity and passionate commitment. Collegial and inclusive, Shelli is an engaging, empathetic and accessible leader who inspires and brings out the best in others. With characteristic diplomacy and grace, she brings people together and confronts challenging issues by skillfully building consensus. As 92nd Chancellor, Shelli will be guided by the principle that each member is a valued part of the Association.

A graduate of Temple University, she earned her degree, magna cum laude, in three years and began a first career teaching English at a Philadelphia public high school. Six years later, she became a teacher by day and a student at night, when she entered the evening division of Temple University Beasley School of Law, from which she graduated in 1982. In 1985, she joined Wilson Elser Moskowitz Edelman & Dicker LLP, following three years as a litigator in the City of Philadelphia Law Department.

Highlights of Shelli's leadership include chairing the Board of Governors, on which she has served for 10 years, and co-chairing the State Civil, Women in the Profession, Medical-Legal and Lawyer Referral and Information Service committees. She also has twice chaired the Bench-Bar and Annual Conference. Serving our public interest partners, Shelli has been a member of various boards and led multiple fundraising efforts.

Shelli is married to Bill Fedullo, 2014 Chancellor and a private-practice solo practitioner. Their son, Bill, is a third-year student at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and will join White and Williams LLP as an associate in the fall of 2019.
