Susan Vitello
Attorney, Investor and Former Real Estate Broker

Susan grew up in the construction industry with her father and uncle owning a contruction company.  Susan was going to work with her father and riding non-enclosed elevators (before OSHA) to the top of buildings.  On smaller job sites, Susan would clean up the job site and sweep floors to earn spending money.  Construction and Real Estate were in her blood and she bough...

Susan grew up in the construction industry with her father and uncle owning a contruction company.  Susan was going to work with her father and riding non-enclosed elevators (before OSHA) to the top of buildings.  On smaller job sites, Susan would clean up the job site and sweep floors to earn spending money.  Construction and Real Estate were in her blood and she bought her first rehab at 20 years old.  Twenty years later, Susan decided to go back to school and get her law degree, but it wasn't long before her love of Real Estate led her to direct her law practice toward representing clients in real estate transactions.  Susan does not just have the "book knowledge" of real estate from learning it in law school, she has actual first hand knowledge from "living it."  

The Vitello Law Firm has represented individuals, businesses, corporations, numerous banks and financial institutions with professionalism, experience, and the knowledge to procure a favorable outcome for our clients.  Our business continues to increase through referrals from our satisfied clients, and for that we are very grateful and thankful.
