Midwest Drone Fest Welcomes
Jeffrey Antonelli launched one of the first Drone/UAS Practice Groups in the country in 2014 after discovering drone technology in his RC aircraft hobby. The practice has grown to more than 100 clients nationwide, including billion-dollar engineering, construction, and telecom concerns as well as GIS professionals, cinematographers, real estate companies, a news organization, and a forensic specialist. Four of Antonelli Law’s UAS clients received some of the first night-time waivers granted under Part 107.
Jeffrey has been interviewed by the media many times, including Bloomberg BNA, NBC, The New York Times, Chicago Lawyer, Chicago Tribune, and the longstanding lawyer’s publication Chicago Daily Law Bulletin.
When he has spare time, Jeffrey enjoys flying his DJI Inspire and traditional RC airplanes.
