    Words From Clients

    • We initially hired Mr. Vanarelli’s law firm to initiate a guardianship proceeding on behalf of our young adult son with special needs.While we were at it we decided to update our wills and related documents. From the consultation through the court order,we received thoughtful consideration of our needs, advice, guidance and support, along with expertise and experience.It was a stressful process for us that was made much easier by Don and his very caring staff…

    • Working with Mr. Vanarelli was the perfect combination of high-level, professional representation and personal service. Even on a day when Mr. Vanarelli succeeded in a case before the New Jersey Supreme Court, he made me and my family feel like we were his highest priority. I would highly recommend his firm to anyone with elder law-related questions or issues.

    • Don is an extremely knowledgeable and effective advocate for his clients. His work has resulted in landmark decisions that have increased rights for seniors and individuals with special needs and paved the way for other attorneys to make recommendations on certain key issues to their clients. His integrity, generosity in helping others, and enthusiasm for his field are truly exceptional.
