For over half a century, the attorneys of Fortuna & Cartelli, P.C. have provided high-quality legal representation to individuals and businesses throughout Middlesex, Hartford, New London & New Haven Counties. The cornerstone of our success is our ability to provide superior legal representation for each client in each case. Our law firm is dedicated to excellence in the practice of law.
Let our experience and commitment make the difference in your case. In many cases, time is of the essence. It is important to immediately seek advice from highly qualified legal counsel because of the statute of limitations. In addition, it is imperative that legal representation be commenced without delay, as many cases require immediate investigation and protection of time sensitive evidence.
Although many cases settle without court proceedings, the only way to maximize the insurance settlement or jury award of every case is to prepare the case early and thoroughly! Our attorneys and staff place great emphasis on developing your case quickly, thoroughly and professionally. Our experience can make a difference.
We measure our success based on the satisfaction of each and every client. Our office appreciates and takes pride in the fact that existing clients, and even other attorneys, actively refer new clients to our office. These referrals are the direct result of providing professional legal services that produce positive results for our clients. In addition to providing quality representation, our attorneys personally contact each client on a regular basis to inform the client of the status of their case. Years of experience have proven that effective and successful representation of a client requires personal attention and frequent communication.
The attorneys at Fortuna & Cartelli, P. C attend seminars on a regular basis. As a result we are able to provide superior representation using the latest applications of the law.
4. Loyalty and Trust
The hundreds of referrals we have received from former satisfied clients is a direct result of our clients being confident that the attorneys in our firm are trustworthy and will be totally devoted to each and every client that retains our services. We represent individuals like you who need superior representation to handle their legal needs.
5. No Recovery - No Fee for Injury Cases
We work on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. If you are not compensated for your injury by the insurance company, there is no legal fee. Frequently, injury cases result in settlements rather than a court trial. The decision to settle your case is yours. Only you can authorize the settlement of your case. We will advise you whether the settlement is fair and reasonable, give you verification of the net settlement proceeds, and answer any questions you may have before you agree to settle your case. You will know the amount you "take home" before you settle your case. This allows you to make an informed decision as to whether settling your case is best for you.
6. No Cost Up Front For Injury Cases
When you retain Fortuna & Cartelli, P.C., we'll advance the costs of preparing and presenting your injury case. This is not always the case with other firms. Many law firms require the client to pay the costs of collecting information, preparing the evidence and other expenses. This can amount to hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Our willingness to advance these expenses shows our commitment to you and your case.
7. Your First Consultation is FREE
Your first consultation for Injury, Criminal, and DUI cases is FREE. Often we can answer your basic questions regarding your injury case on the phone or via the Internet. If we feel we can help, we'll meet with you quickly. We'll explain your rights in plain language and answer your questions at no charge. If you hire us, our fees and case costs will be clearly explained and stated in writing.
8. Home or Hospital Consultations
We know that injuries can make travel difficult. If you can't come to our office, an attorney will personally travel to meet you regardless of your location. Our attorneys often meet clients at hospitals and rehabilitation facilities. In extreme cases where your location prevents us from having an opportunity to meet you personally, we can communicate by computer or telephone to discuss and evaluate your case and initiate our representation.
9. Personal Service and Attention
You will have an attorney assigned to your case at all times.
When you call the office, you will be able to speak to your attorney about your case. Upon hiring Fortuna & Cartelli, P.C. your attorney will personally communicate with you regarding the status of your case. You will not be transferred to a claims' processor. You will have an experienced attorney as well as qualified legal staff working on your file. You will take comfort in knowing your case is a priority and not just a number.
Fortuna & Cartelli, P.C. uses computer and communications technology in order to streamline the process of legal research and courtroom presentations. We use this technology in order to enhance the likelihood of a favorable settlement or jury verdict.
