I’ve been a Rhode Islander my whole life, except for the 7 years I went to college and law school in New York. I’ve represented many people and done business with many people. Over the course of these years I have come to trust and depend on several people to whom I refer my clients when they have a need.
Ryan Lutrario, Esq of Indeglia Associates is a business attorney whom I have relied upon for several years to take care of the needs of my clients who have businesses. He does business formations, receiverships, collections, etc. I’ve never had a client who was not completely satisfied with this referral.
John Bevilacqua, of Bevilacqua & Bevilacqua, handles the real estate needs of my clients. He is available to my clients on a moment’s notice and always looking out for my client’s interests, even when my clients are impatient and would rather rush towards an ill-advised purchase.
And speaking of real estate, Mike Zompa, is a real estate agent that brings both experience and calm to those of my clients buying or selling real estate. Whether it’s a sale or a purchase Mike helps my clients through the process and helps them make sure they are making sound decisions for their future.
Michelle Morocco, MoMu Home Staging, maximizes the sale price of their homes with skilled home staging that provides an aesthetic geared towards permitting the potential buyer to imagine the house as their own.
For those of my clients who need financing to purchase a new home, I refer them to Brian
Tata of Advanced Mortgage. He is diligent in trying to find the best financing options for my clients and goes to great lengths to make sure they understand the process.
In the course of my bankruptcy practice I meet many people who may still avoid bankruptcy and I refer them to Christina Gatteri, CFP, to find a path financial competency and solvency. And for my clients who do file bankruptcy, Christina has helped them to learn how to avoid the mistakes they may have made in the past.
For those clients who need a CPA who is responsive, proactive, and knowledgeable, I refer them to Pablo Cabrera, CPA. I am always confident that Pablo will take care of them.
Internet, IT and Business Phone Solutions
All of my clients who have businesses need websites, computer systems and telephone services. These are things businesses cannot do without. Sal Sauco at Englund Studios has been creating websites and branding for the clients I refer to him and I would not trust anyone else with their needs.
The same is true for computer systems by Thomas Bastianelli, at Signal Solutions, where not only can they design and install a system for you, they will monitor it and know if you have a problem before you do.
And finally, first impressions are critical and the first impression a potential client has of a business is their telephone reception. Will Britton is the go to guy at Rhode Island Telephone. Rhode Island telephone is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, telephone systems company in Rhode Island. They’ve been providing cloud-hosted and premise-based business phone solutions since the 80’s and no one does it better.
These are some of the people I count on and you can count on them, too. I rely on them every day and they have become my friends.
