Our Managing Partner Charlie Casartello and his wife Carol got a wonderful write up in the Community Legal Aid's annual report. Here's the article:
Charles (“Charlie”) Casartello Jr. and his wife Carol Katany-Casartello are among Community Legal Aid’s most stalwart supporters. Charlie has served as a board member in various capacities since 2011, including as the Vice-President and President, and subsequently served on the Board of Managers of our subsidiary, the Central West Justice Center.
Charlie has been a member of our Hampden County Access to Justice Campaign since its inception, and he and Carol have hosted events at their home to benefit CLA. Charlie’s firm, Pellegrini, Seeley, Ryan & Blakesley, is also a generous donor.
Regarding his long-term involvement with Community Legal Aid, Charlie said, “Both CLA and the Central West Justice Center play a crucial role in ensuring that some of our most vulnerable neighbors have meaningful access to our American justice system. I am proud to support their work.”
Carol added, “I am proud of the work that Charlie has done with CLA, and I am proud to join him in supporting it. I worked in and around the Massachusetts legal system for more than thirty-five years. During that time, I recognized the critical nature of what CLA does for people…and the absolute need for the services that CLA provides.”
As Charlie prepares to retire from his board service, we want to take this opportunity to thank Charlie and Carol for their loyal support on behalf of CLA and the clients we serve. We are so fortunate to have them on our team, fighting for justice for all.
