Putting trust in someone when a loved one is lying in hospital bed seriously injured was nerve racking for me. I called Bellotti Law the morning after my boyfriend got hit by a SUV cycling because I knew there were some serious injuries. They had someone there by the afternoon to document everything. Karen was the first person I worked with. She explained things very thoroughly as to how to get the best outcome and I made sure my boyfriend followed her advice to the letter. That advice made such an impact on the case in the long run. The hardest part was dealing with the frustration with the other guys insurance. The best way I can describe our attorney is a very smart pit bull. After 18 months we really didn't want to go to court unless absolutely necessary. She listened to all of our thoughts and concerns and got everything we asked for and more! When my boyfriend called to tell me the good news, I was standing in Costco and started crying. I'm genuinely grateful. I do know how money hungry lawyers are made out to be, but I respect the amount of quality work that the whole firm does to get results. Everyone there, from the moment you walk in to the moment things are concluded, is classy, professional, and efficient. I hope I never need another personal injury attorney again, but if I do you will certainly be my first call.

I have known Karen for more than sixteen years, and regard her both as a colleague, and an impressive go-to person from early in my career. She is an exceptional personal injury attorney. I admire her energy, grace under pressure and creativity. Early in my professional life, I often sought her guidance and counsel in identifying and formulating legal issues in multi-faceted litigation, and welcomed her criticisms when drafting legal arguments. She frequently offered a unique perspective on difficult cases, which ultimately led to success and excellent results for clients.

In my previous job, I met numerous attorneys and had the pleasure to work with several over the years. None of them had expertise in car accident cases. I didn't know Karen before my accident, but she was recommended by a lawyer whose opinion I trust. I asked for a couple of names but he said there is only one name, Karen Nadeau, that he needed to give me. He spoke very highly of her and urged me to call her. When I found out that attorney Nadeau represents people with really serious injuries I first thought my case might be too small for her. When I told Karen my concern she gave me a warm smile and politely dismissed it. She reassured me that my case was important to her and that I would quickly learn that the entire office values its clients.
Doug Bernacchi, Bankruptcy and debt Attorney
Karen is a fabulous attorney and a consummate professional and, in my opinion, one of the top personal injury lawyers in Boston. When I was searching for a top accident attorney in Massachusetts, Attorney Nadeau’s name came up repeatedly. When I first spoke with her it was clear she was very knowledgeable about bicycle accidents, motorcycle, truck, and auto accidents because of her knowledge of the law and her trial skills. She is one of those lawyers who says what she'll do and does what she says. I really appreciate her thoughtfulness, creativity and quite simply her legal IQ. I unequivocally recommend Attorney Karen Nadeau.
Alexander Asermely, Litigation Attorney
I first met Attorney Karen Nadeau as an intern while I was in law school. From day one, I admired her dedication to clients, attention to detail, and seasoned skill—in and out of the courtroom. Quite simply, she possesses all the attributes of an outstanding lawyer and is one that I model my own career after. I now interact with many attorneys in my daily practice, but very few practice with the same zeal, commitment, and high aptitude that Attorney Nadeau consistently employs. Case in point, when my girlfriend was seriously injured in an accident last year, there was no hesitation with who I advised her to call. Given Karen’s lengthy resume of success, my expectations were high regarding her handling of the matter, but she has still managed to exceed them. Attorney Nadeau has rightly earned her reputation as one of the most polished trial lawyers in Massachusetts. She is extremely well regarded by her peers, judges, and most importantly, her clients, to whom she is a true asset
