Charles R. Casartello, Jr.

Attorney Charles R. Casartello, Jr., a partner with Pellegrini Seeley Ryan & Blakesley since 1990, is our Spotlight Member of the month.  Charlie has been active on the Hampden County Board of Directors for over 15 years, as a Board member, President, and ex-officio past president.  Charlie was instrumental in organizing and branding our Educational Programs and remains active on that committee. 

Charlie is most notably known for his passion and dedication to pro bono efforts and has said that his proudest moment as a volunteer lawyer was representing victims of the World Trade Center attacks in New York City. Charlie worked on four pro bono cases and represented first responders and families who suffered the loss of a loved one in the 9/11 tragedy. Attorney Casartello currently serves on the Hampden County Bar Association’s Pro Bono Advisory Committee as well as the Community Legal Aid’s Board of Directors.  Charlie worked tirelessly to structure and implement the District Court Lawyer for the Day program, helping to devise and implement training for potential volunteers.  He was the first volunteer for that program and continues to volunteer several times a year for that program as well as many others including our legal help hotlines.  Several years ago, Attorney Casartello was instrumental in leading a team to organize a “Day of Justice; Law Workshops for the Community” program which was held at Springfield Technical Community College and later at the Old First Church in Court Square.

In addition to his work in the legal community, in his spare time, Charlie is an avid runner and organizes a Thanksgiving morning 5K “Stuffing the Pantry” Race/Walk, to benefit the Open Pantry Community Services in Springfield. He is also on the Mason Wright Board of Corporators and previously served on the Greater Springfield YMCA Board of Directors.

Attorney Casartello has received many well deserving accolades for his service to the general community, some of which are:

Griffin's Friends Silent Hero Award
Harriet Louise Hardy Award for service to workers in health and safety
John M. Greaney Law Day Award
MBA Pro Bono Access to Justice Award
Massachusetts Bar Association Community Service Award
Recognition for Pro Bono Service to Victims of 9/11
St. Thomas More Society Award

Without dedicated members like Charlie, the Hampden County Bar Association would not be the successful organization we are today. Charlie is the epitome of selflessness and professionalism, and our community is fortunate to have him!
