WASHINGTON, DC, July 1, 2021 – Julie S. Selesnick, Of Counsel at Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC and a member of the firm's Employee Benefits/ERISA practice, has been elected a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation (ABF).

ABF Fellows hail from nearly 40 countries and hold a wide variety of influential roles.

Ms. Selesnick represents the interests of employees, retirees, and plan participants and beneficiaries in ERISA cases in in federal courts across the country. Her practice currently focuses on health care-related litigation, where she brings a decade of insurance coverage experience to the fight against insurance carrier TPAs that fail to uphold their fiduciary duties under ERISA-covered health plans.

Other notable Fellows include Associate Justice of the Supreme Court Sonia Sotomayor, Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts, Former United States Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton, and Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

About the ABF Fellows

The ABF’s mission is to serve the legal profession, the public, and the academy through empirical research, publications, and programs that advance justice and the understanding of law. The ABF’s research falls under one of three categories: learning and practicing law; protecting rights and accessing justice; and making and implementing law. The Foundation is committed to broad dissemination of research findings to the organized bar, scholars, and the general public.
