My experience with Attorney Karen Nadeau (a fantastic attorney) and her colleagues at the Bellotti Law Group was exceptional and greatly exceeded my expectations. After I was injured on an amusement park ride while on vacation with my husband and children, I felt overwhelmed… In the end, the final settlement was much larger than I anticipated. The peace of mind and security that Karen provided meant a lot to me. I highly recommend her firm for their professional, compassionate, and proactive standards. Mary Mack
We went to Bellotti Law for help with a car injury to a pedestrian in a hospital parking garage. Peter and Karen are very low-key and calm, but know well how the system works and got us an excellent setlement through persistence, and helping us to track the effects of the injury and its future potential effects. They made a very strong case, and held out for a great settlement… I highly recommend them for their calm persistence, intelligence and experience in personal injury cases. Paul Farrell
