Chad A. Morrone, Esq.
Licensed to practice in CT and MA

Licensed to practice law in CT and MA -  A native of Westerly, Attorney Chad Morrone attended Bentley University, after graduating from Westerly High School. Chad graduated from New England School of Law, in Boston. Immediately after graduating in 2000, he founded his own practice in Medford, Massachusetts. Chad continued practicing in the Boston area focusing mainly on real estate.  Chad, after moving back to Westerly,  shifted into the financial services business for two years, acquiring all the necessary security licenses. Then, he returned to the practice of law by joining the Marinosci Law Group, a large national default firm. There, he focused on foreclosure, evictions, and bankruptcy litigation. In 2020, he once again founded his own practice, in the heart of Westerly to serve the RI/ CT community while maintaining his connections in the Boston area.

While the practice of law can be very time consuming, Chad still takes time to give back to the community, both locally and beyond. He works with the Big Brother/Big Sister Program, makes contributions to the Jimmy Fund, and supports the local Johnnycake Center.  During the holidays, Chad volunteers at the Westerly Warm Shelter, with his teenage son, cooking meals for those in need. To relax, he plays guitar, spends time with his son, and takes time to visit old friends from his years in the Boston area. Exercise and fresh air are important to him, enjoying time at the beach, boating, skiing, or hiking with his dog.
