Client Testimonials

We recently closed on our Property in Chicago and I have to say, Frank Ponticelli and his team did a fantastic job. Frank and his staff were very attentive to all the closing documents and the quality of the work was nothing but professional and attentive. My husband and I are so grateful for Vito Ponticelli's passion, dedication, and professionalism. We've hired lawyers before, but Vito Ponticelli and his team are truly the best we have ever worked with. Thank you so much!

Ponticelli & Vito is absolutely amazing. They are very professional and knowledgeable at what they do. I’ve used their service twice now and they always take their time to make sure my wife and I understand every detail of the legal process. Frank Ponticelli was there from start to finish both times. The people at his office were also very polite and quick to respond whenever a call or email was sent to them. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience both times. I highly recommend Ponticelli & Vito.

I used Frank for a real estate transaction and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Great interactions, very helpful with any questions I had, and very fair and reasonable prices. I would definitely recommend Frank to anyone looking for legal help.
