Cramer & Anderson Associate Joseph Mortelliti

Joseph P. Mortelliti – Partner

Attorney Joseph P. Mortelliti joined Cramer & Anderson in September 2021 as a Litigation Associate in the firm’s Danbury office.

A graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Law, Attorney Mortelliti previously worked in the commercial real estate and litigation departments of a New Haven firm, and before that in the land use, zoning, litigation and residential real estate departments for a firm in Vernon.

In those roles, Attorney Mortelliti worked with municipalities and local government officials, as well as housing authorities and zoning officials, a foundation for working with Cramer & Anderson Municipal Law Partner Dan Casagrande and other attorneys within the firm.

Inspired to study law by the opportunity to substantially help people, Attorney Mortelliti cites working with those who make decisions that impact the public good as a particular motive in his pursuit to be a positive force in people’s lives.

Notable work experiences for Attorney Mortelliti in college and law school include working with the Office of Legal Counsel at the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, and serving as a law clerk for New Britain Superior Court Judges Carl Schuman and Henry Cohn of the Tax & Administration Appeals Session.

Previously he was an intern with the Connecticut Office of the Attorney General in the Transportation, Housing and Public Works Department, and also an intern with the Environmental & Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington, D.C.

Attorney Mortelliti was drawn to Cramer & Anderson by the firm’s history and reputation, as well as the western Connecticut geography and the firm’s footprint with six regional offices.

He values public service and volunteer work and looks forward to being involved in the community. Outside the office, Attorney Mortelliti enjoys fly fishing, running, and visiting family.
