RV from Hell
We bought a brand new 2020 cyclone rv July 5, 2019. We had nothing but problems with it from the very first day. From holes drilled in the drain pipe for the sink to lights strobing in the living area and master bedroom, to awning arms breaking, water leaking in the door to the kitchen, back ramp door filling with water, we even had a situation where the rod for the rear bunks came out and the right seat crashed down and hit my son in the back. Bubbling around the roof, lights burned out all over. it was so bad that every single time that we went to use the rv I had to go pick it up from the repair center, use it, then return it to the repair center. It got so bad that I was dealing with heartland directly. I had my own direct number to a supervisor at heartland. He would call me or I would call him and we would go over the warranty items and he would tell me he was approving them line by line as I was on the phone with him. I would go to pick up my rig and nothing would be repaired! I would send an email to him 3-5 days later I would get a response that everything was approved. 4-6 weeks later I would go to use my rig again and nothing would be fixed. They would print the work orders and show me in black and white that everything had been denied. This went on for 1.5 yrs. I got tired of it. Warranties were expiring or expired and nothing was getting fixed. So in late January 2021 I made 3 calls to different attorneys. I left messages with all 3 giving a brief explanation of what was going on and the problems I was having/dealing with. Tony was the only one who returned my call and within 5 min. I spent over 30 min with him over the phone. He listened to every word that I had to say. He took notes asked me questions so he fully understood my dilemma and then Made some suggestions to me of what to do next. The last thing he said to me before we hung up was “ hang in there and if you ever need anything else call me and ill do whatever I can to help you”. Well 6 weeks later I called him again and hired him to do a demand letter. I had hundreds of emails back and forth with heartland. I had videos of the damage, 30-40 repair orders from 3 different repair facilities, that he had to go through. Within a week he had prepared a demand letter, sent it to heartland and received a response from upper management. 1 week and he was already further up the chain than I got in 1.5 yrs. He didn’t stop there like a normal attorney would have considering I only paid him to do a demand letter. He kept on with them back and forth until we reached an agreement. We are in the final phases now with heartland and of course we agreed to hire him on for the negotiations at a separate rate. Tony saved us big time. For what he did for us and is still currently doing for us was way more and way over the top of what he charged us. There is no way that I could have accomplished what he’s done. I would recommend his law firm to anyone who needs help not with just issues like mine but any issues you have. If you want someone who never stops fighting for you, Tony is the man you want on your side. I won’t divulge our settlement but I will say that we are extremely pleased with the results, especially considering what it cost us. All this and my wife and have never physically met Tony. Many many conversations and emails later he got it done!! Thank you again Tony! Randy Revis

He knows the Law!
My husband and I had the best experience with Mr. Conticello P.A. We had a dispute with our landlord and didn't know exactly what the laws were regarding our case or how to move forward legally. I spoke with several different attorneys before hiring this firm and I'm certain I made the right choice! After scheduling a consultation within 48 hours, my husband I were given all the tools we would need to succeed legally in small claims court. Our attorney was patient, knowledgeable, kind, respectful, and very good at communicating the law to us so we could comprehend. I would definitely trust this firm to handle my legal needs in the future.

Highly Recommended Knowledgeable, Effective and Affordable Attorney
I used Conticello, PA to obtain legal advice on how to proceed with a Florida based vacation company. Due to COVID, we had to cancel our travel plans and as a result, the company issued a travel voucher for the full balance we originally paid. When we re-booked the trip, they sold us insurance to cover the value of the travel voucher, however, when we had to cancel our plans again, we found out that insurance doesn't cover travel vouchers and the company was also unwilling to give us our voucher back (1 time use only). Anthony answered all of calls/questions and provided several options for us to proceed. Within 1 day of sending a demand letter, the company was willing to reissue us our travel voucher. Anthony also checked in with us to ensure we were able to redeem the voucher without any issues. Without his help we would have lost a significant amount of money as well as a family trip. We were extremely happy with his services and would highly recommend him. He is knowledgeable, patient and most importantly, effective!

GREAT EXPERIENCE
I was need of an attorney to defend me against a suit that I was tied into related to a previous employer. Tony was more than willing and optimistic to take on my case. After putting in the time to understand the case and put together the best possible strategy for a defense, he ultimately got the case dismissed. The communication and level of professionalism experienced with his firm was top notch, and would definitely recommend their services to anyone in need of an attorney who will put forth 150% effort into achieving the best possible outcome.

Property Insurance settlement
Mr Conticello represented us in settlement of a claim with our insurance company who was making it difficult for us. Mr Conticello’s knowledge and understanding of the applicable laws made haste a fair settlement. Mr Conticello was easily assessable and responded promptly giving professional advice. Should the need arise we will definitely hire him again.

Top-notch. Intelligent, courteous, and shared useful information.
Some lawyers feel they need to keep it all a "mystery among lawyers," but Tony made everything really clear to us. He's very experienced. We're so glad we were able to work with him. We positively recommend him!
