Felicia M. Seaton, Esquire has been practicing U.S. Estate Planning Law and Probate since 1996.

Ms. Seaton founded her U.S. estate planning firm in Israel in August 2007. She practices U.S.-International estate planning and individual tax, U.S. probate and estate administration and tax and renunciation of U.S. citizenship (and relinquishment of U.S. green cards).

For four years prior to August 2007, Ms. Seaton was the lead attorney in her own law firm, located in Wilmington, Delaware. There, she practiced Elder Law litigation involving lawsuits over Wills, Estates, Trusts, Powers of Attorney and Living Wills; Estate Planning; Immigration Law; Family Law and small Civil litigation.

Before establishing her own law office in November 2003, Ms. Seaton practiced law with firms in Delaware and Ohio in the same practice areas. She was also an assistant Deputy Attorney General of the State of Delaware’s Attorney General’s office.

Ms. Seaton is a graduate of the Case Western Reserve University School of Law, Cleveland, Ohio, Bar”‘Ilan University cum laude and Gymnasia Rechavia, as well as a veteran of the Nachal Unit of the IDF.
