In early 2012, I was wrongfully accused of arson via circumstantial evidence. The lead detective was determined to have me suffer for someone else's crime and I felt powerless. Mr. Petrillo saved me from my Kafkaesque nightmare through his strength of character, confidence of law and learned talent in the court room. From day one, he was upfront about my situation, preparing me for all possible scenarios. My concerns were his, both in and out of the courtroom. When this all began, I was depressed the justice system failed me and I was downtrodden by what appeared to be absolute powers tailoring the facts to my demise. By the end of trial, Mr. Petrillo lead us to a triumphant acquittal; In the process, restoring my faith in the justice system. I'm convinced had I not been in Mr. Petrillo's professional hands, I would not have prevailed and fallen through the fingers of a lesser lawyer. I am forever grateful. Should you find yourself in a similar predicament: You'll want a warrior like Mr. Petrillo fighting at your side in the courtroom.

About a year and a half ago I ran into some legal trouble and needed legal representation. My wife's cousin is a corporate lawyer and she referred us to William Petrillo. Having never been on the wrong side of the law, I didnt know what to expect. I also didn't know if this would affect my employment status. I had a laundry list of concerns and questions. After my first consultation with Bill, he immediately struck me as personable, professional, confident and honest. He told me what all of my options were and also gave me his personal opinion. My best interest was always his primary concern. He always reiterated that no matter what legal avenue i chose to go down, he was in my corner 100%. I felt extremely confident that i had chosen the right guy. And i definitely did. From the first court appearance right up to my last, Bill and his associate, Karen Bobley always put their best foot forward. They never wanted to settle for anything less than what I had hoped for. At the end of my court proceedings I did get the outcome i was looking for and my friends and co-workers could not believe that it was possible, under the circumstances. I owe it all to Bill and his team. Whenever I needed legal documentation e-mailed or faxed, for work or other purposes, Jennifer, Bill's office manager, was always on top of things. Jennifer would call me the day before any court appearances, as a reminder, and also give me the heads up on what would happen at that appearance. Whenever I had questions, Jennifer usually had an answer and if she didn't, Bill would , personnally, call me back by the end of the day. Words do not truly describe the high level of service that I received. Bill and company made a very stressful situation very manageable and i am forever grateful. Not only is Bill a great lawyer. He is a wonderful human being. And that is what separates him from the rest. So, if you ever find yourself in a legal bind, don't take chances or cut corners. Protect yourself and go with the best, William Petrillo.

Mr. Petrillo is a miracle worker. When faced with a situation that other lawyers told me was all but impossible to be resolved in a tolerable manner, Mr. Petrillo did the impossible. Throughout the whole process he was knowledgable, honest, available, and incredibly professional.
Having first gone to other highly recommended lawyers I was able to get a sense of the different types of attorneys that are out there. Not only was the outcome something that the other attorneys couldn't dream of, but Mr. Petrillo's personality and general manner was miles beyond the others. In an incredibly trying time he was calming. But while he was pleasant to deal with personally, he also is incredibly fierce in the courtroom. You get the sense that what he does is not just his job, but his passion. There is nobody I would trust more.
I highly, highly recommend Mr. Petrillo.

I consider myself extremely fortunate to have worked with Mr. Petrillo when recently I was facing multiple felony charges. From our first meeting I felt Bill's passion for undertaking whatever was necessary to insure that I received proper representation. He is endowed with an extraordinary talent for understanding the client's fears and concerns while offering honest and straightforward information and advice. Mr. Petrillo is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. Bill had no restrictions for phone calls at anytime, any day. He kept me fully informed as to the process and progress of my case. Finally, as opposed to many attorneys who are not court experienced - Mr. Petrillo shined in court. His presentation of the details of my case held the audience captive. It was like watching a great actor present Shakespeare. Not only did the audience come to understand the complications of the situation; but, more importantly, the resolution of the case reflected his hard work, diligence and devotion to his client. It is my great pleasure to recommend Mr.William S. Petrillo.
