Cona Elder Law Employees Recognized by Long Island Business News


Michele Crawford, Jesika Kalika, Marcus O’Toole-Gelo, and Julie Wyetzner Honored by Leading Regional Business Publication

Jennifer Cona, founder and managing partner of Cona Elder Law, announced today that four members of her team have been recognized for their 2021 achievements by Long Island Business News.

Those being honored include:

  • Michele Crawford, a paralegal who earned an “Unsung Hero Award”, which singles out support staff for exemplary performance that goes above and beyond the established parameters of their job.  Specifically, Ms. Crawford, a resident of Farmingville, was cited for developing and implementing a program wherein she volunteered her time and her substantial administrative skills to secure COVID vaccine appointments for the elderly – many of whom struggled with navigating the online process.
  • Marcus O’Toole-Gelo, Esq, a partner at the firm, who was included among LIBN’s “Leadership In Law” honorees. The committee recognized Mr. O’Toole-Gelo, of Amityville, for positively impacting Long Island by demonstrating leadership, both in the legal profession and in the community. The criteria for the award included outstanding professional achievements, support of the community and active mentoring.
  • Julie Wyetzner, Cona Elder Law’s Chief Operating Officer, and the firm’s new Marketing Director Jesika Kalika were both named to the “Top 50 Women in Business” list. The coveted title is reserved for the Island’s top women professionals based on business acumen, mentoring and community involvement and honors the most influential women in business, government and the not-for-profit fields. Ms. Wyetzner of Merrick and Ms. Kalika of East Meadow are both included on the list for the first time in 2021.

“Each of these awards were hard-earned and well-deserved,” according to Ms. Cona. “Michele literally saved lives by securing COVID vaccines for our elderly and underserved populations who could not navigate the appointment process or did not have access to technology to do so. Marcus is a thought leader and writer, known for his insightful articles, whether educating other attorneys or the public. Julie’s vision and business acumen continues to drive the firm’s growth and Jesika, the most recent addition to the team, brings years of law firm marketing experience to bear on our already formidable team.”

Stated Ms. Cona, “I could not be more proud of Cona Elder Law, our team, and the recognition earned from Long Island Business News by these particularly outstanding team members.”
