To whom if may concern:
I used Frank Ferrantello of the Ferrantello Group as my expert surveyor on a property damage case. He surveyed the location where the water damage occurred, and provided very convincing evidence (drawings of the location) and testimony indicating that the damage could not have been caused by flooding from a river approximately two blocks from the warehouse during a storm as defendant’s argued, as the storm surge was not high enough above sea level to reach the warehouse. This enabled me to argue that the water damage was caused by a malfunctioning sprinkler system set off by a power surge in a private water main in the industrial park where the warehouse was located.
Additionally, the night before his testimony, he spent hours on line locating and reviewing documents relied upon by the opposing expert, printed out and demonstrated that the opposing expert testified falsely that a particular flood inundation map showed that the flood level had reached the warehouse. In large part as a result of his excellent testimony (he was particularly good at handling cross-examination by opposing counsel, an excellent attorney, the managing partner of a major New York law firm), after a liability verdict, the case settled for a significantly large amount in our favor due to Mr. Ferrantello testimony..
I would highly recommend Mr. Ferrantello as an expert witness/surveyor, and plan to use him again when the occasion arises.

“We received an incorrect survey from our Buyer’s referred surveyor. He apparently was inexperienced and has not worked with any homes on the North Shore of Long Island and stated our lot was two feet short. This caused major problems with our closing. Due to Ferrantello’s expertise and knowledge, they were able to prove our lot was compliant and met all regulations. The original surveyor admitted to his mistake.
Thanks to Long Island Land Surveyor, FERRANTELLO Surveyors and Land Planner Services, I was able to receive accurate data, complete my closing and celebrate Christmas with my family in our new home!
I highly recommend Ferrantello!”

“I am extremely satisfied with the service and quality of the work that I received from Ferrantello Group. I needed an elevation certificate for a renewal of flood insurance and the surveyors that came to the house were friendly and professional. They arrived on time and completed their job in a timely manner. I received my certificate within 48 hours of completion of their inspection.
I would absolutely recommend Ferrantello Group to my friends and co-workers.”
