You have a right to protect yourself, your family, friends and neighbors against the potential adverse health impacts associated with overexposure to RF radiation emanating from a Cell Tower situated in close proximity to you, your home or property.

You also have the right to: (a) fight against sustaining a loss to the value of your property as a result of the installation of a Cell Tower in close proximity, (b) protect yourself, your family, friends and neighbors against the dangers of Cell Tower failures and fires, which occur more often than the average person realizes and (c) fight against having the installation of a Cell Tower adversely affect the character or aesthetics of your neighborhood.

You also possess a federally protected right to be heard before any local Planning Board, Town Board or Zoning Board, and to make submissions to same, for the purpose of opposing any Cell Tower application seeking approval for the irresponsible placement of a Cell Tower or wireless facility near your home or in your community.

“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent representation of the residents of Lake Success. As an attorney practicing for nearly thirty-three years, I can state with great certainty that your zealous representation of the residents of Lake Success was a major reason for the favorable settlement the Village made with Extenet. You truly saved dozens of homes from the blight and health effects of a nearby cell node.”

“I just wanted to formally thank you for representing my family and our neighbors in order to stop Extenet from building their 5G tower across from our home. There are no words to express our gratitude. Without your support, knowledge, and perseverance, I am confident the outcome most likely would not have been as favorable. You truly are responsible for changing the course of this case.

I feel so grateful you agreed to take our case on. I knew from the moment we first spoke, you were the perfect attorney to represent us. We were incredibly lucky to benefit from your previous experience. Thank you for being so compassionate, ethical and concerned. I hope that you are able to continue the incredible work you are doing so one day the truth about the danger and corruption behind 5G will be acknowledged.”

“I will tell you this: Every zoning case, as you know, stands or falls on its own merits. However, and this gives you no particular advantage, but I think it bears saying because its true. I have been sitting here listening to these cases for 18 years. The only opposition case I ever heard presented by an attorney before this Board that made any sense, and had some substance to it, and was not based on hysteria or dribble, was by you. So, that is to your credit. It does not give you a leg up on this case, but it’s worth saying that it’s accurate.”

“Speaking as a client, and as an attorney myself, I highly recommend Mr. Campanelli. Not only did he help our organization succeed in our fight, he was instrumental in getting our Town to implement the strictest cell antenna placement zoning laws in the Country. I was very impressed at his wealth of knowledge on the issue.”

“I found Mr. Campanelli to be a highly experienced and knowledgeable attorney in cell tower matters. He went before our town zoning board and gave an energetic and passionate argument against T-Mobile’s erection of a cell tower in our neighborhood. I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

“Mr. Campanelli – Thank you very much for your help. You and your staff definitely have a top notch office. I was impressed in how you worked recently with me on my representation regarding a cellphone tower hearing. I was especially impressed with your first-hand knowledge about my particular jurisdiction and how incredibly patient and responsive you and your staff were to all of my questions about the process. You and your staff were proficient and professional in all aspects of my representation. My family and my fellow community members who attended the hearing thank you for your skills which could not have produced a better outcome – a denial of request for a variance.”

Warmest Regards,
