Rob is handling a few cases for me including an estate settlement, eviction and a business setup. He is the most attentive and responsive attorney I have ever dealt with and has done a great job representing our interests. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that wants an aggressive, knowledgeable and totally committed lawyer.

Very knowledgeable, easy to work with
Started up a Auto Dealership in Bridgewater, Rob was very knowledable with the town regulations and the process went smoother than we could imagine. Also helped us negotiating our lease with the landlords, overall very pleased and would highly recommend.

probate and small biz
Rob was fantastic in helping us with a probate matter and a small business start up. He is real down to earth and while very knowledgable and timely, he is also just a generally nice guy.

A review for Attorney Robert Pellegrini Jr.
Bob played a key role in helping myself and my business partner negotiate a very important, detailed and long term lease for our move to our new corporate office. I was pleased with his thoroughness and ability to find flaws with the base terms. Through Bob's review and comments we were able to remove and successfully negotiate out burdensome and potentially expensive clauses that otherwise we would have missed.

Attorney Robert R. Pellegrini, Jr.
It is my privilege to offer a review of the legal services that I have received from Attorney Rob Pellegrini, and his staff. He has guided me through the land purchase, town committee approval process, and bank closing for our new commercial building. Rob has done an outstanding job with each complicated step of the process. His business and land expertise resulted in our purchase of a complex parcel of land. He was very persistent, patient, and encouraging in the process. Next, Rob successfully negotiated contracts with our architectural and constructions teams. His communication was always accurate, timely, and succinct. His knowledge of town bylaws and requirements was essential in navigating our project through the various town planning committees. Rob's referral to a local bank helped secure proper financing, at a competitive rate. He was always present for important meetings with town and bank officials. Rob drafted sound lease agreements for each of our building tenants. At each step in the process, Rob was attentive, and prompt, in both his phone and email communications. Rob's staff members, Jana and Dani, were very helpful in managing the details of our commercial venture. Their help was invaluable in the success of our project. Rob's friendly and professional manner made the complicated process much easier for me. Also, it has been a privilege for me to serve the community alongside Rob through charitable causes that he supports. I highly recommend Attorney Rob Pellegrini, Jr. He is very competent, attentive, and focused in helping his clients reach their goals. Rob and his staff are always very personable and caring in their interactions with their clients.

Great Attorney
We moved to the area and relocated our business. Rob was very knowledgable about moving from another state and what was involved. He handled everything and made the entire process easy.
Posted by Doug | April 28, 2015
Down to earth and professional
I've used Rob for years now for legal work. He is unpretentious and easy to work with. I never get the feeling he or his office associates have a stop watch clicking as soon as they answer the phone and are always willing to answer a quick question on the spot or get back to me with a more researched answer to a more complex problem/issue.
