A recent review:
"This firm donated tens of thousands of dollars of pro bono work when the Willington Hill Fire Department was engaged in purchasing a property for a new firehouse. Joseph Mortelliti, the Attorney with whom I had contact, has an amazing work ethic. I returned home in the evening to find a voice-mail from him. At 8:30 I called the number, intending to leave a reply of his voice mail. To my surprise, Joe answered the phone from his office. He was still at his desk working on various zoning, financing, etc., issues regarding our purchase."
