I hired William 1-3 years ago.
William handled my Criminal Defense matter.
I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.
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 recommend William Petrillo
I hired William more than 3 years ago.
William handled my White Collar Crime matter.
I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.
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.
