Mr. Altieri has experience dealing with commercial contract disputes, from steel trade battles to board and nail cases. He has experience with all phases of litigation from the initial suit, through discovery and motion practice, including expert witnesses, the trial itself, and appeal.

He has also spent a significant portion of his career working on land use matters – particularly variance and special exception applications, governmental taking and eminent domain disputes. Mr. Altieri has worked on a number of cases involving lawyers’ professional responsibility matters at the state and federal trial courts as well as the First Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mr. Altieri takes pride in honing in carefully on the details of a dispute while never losing sight of the big picture areas that will make a difference to his clients, the fact finder and the courts.
