Decades of Service
to the Community

From a small general law practice serving Trenton, New Jersey, to a robust firm with four offices across NJ, Pellettieri Rabstein & Altman has changed a lot over the years. But our commitment to service has not. The mission of the firm has always been to serve individuals – we are a people practice. We help individuals with their personal legal matters, battling insurance companies, government agencies, and businesses. We continue to provide that same level of one-on-one attention and personal care that we provided when George Pellettieri Sr. started the firm in 1929.
