Shannon Macleod, Esq.
Shannon received her Bachelors of Science in Psychology from Fordham University in 1997. Straight from Fordham University, Shannon began working in the accounting department of an Extended Care Facility. She was promoted within her five-year tenure at the extended care facility from Accounting Clerk to Accounts Receivable Manager/Medicaid Coordinator. Her duties at the facility included supervising all patient accounts, performing financial interviews for in-house patients and potential admissions, preparing Medicaid applications, and recording and tracking daily census records.
In 1999, Shannon entered the evening program at St. John's University's School of Law. She also took a position as a paralegal in 2000 with a Long Island law firm representing over 150 nursing homes within New York State. As a paralegal, and then in 2004 as an attorney, Shannon concentrated her practice on health care collection and reimbursement recovery issues. For eight years, Shannon counseled and represented the firm's nursing home clients on all aspects relating to Medicaid reimbursement.
In 2008, while remaining of counsel to one of the largest law firms on Long Island, Shannon Macleod began her own practice. She has combined her vast knowledge of the Medicaid system and her experience with the nursing home industry to provide her clients with individualized legal and professional representation.
Shannon is a member of the Elder Law sections of both the New York State and Suffolk County Bar Associations.
