I've just used Kerry Rafanelli's services and I must say they were beyond excellent. Choosing a lawer is a very difficult task and one I took very seriously. He was recomended to me by two difernt friends I truly trust. Their judgement was spot on and I couldnt have been more happy with the services I was afforded. He provided sound legal advice, responsible opnions, compassion for my situation, and a fair price. You will not be sorry using Kerry Rafanelli.-Anthony

Kerry helped me resolve my divorce case with ease. He took the time to see the the big picture. He was honest and straight froward as to what to expect in my situation. His down to earth personality and humor made a diffiuclt process bearable. He was very thorough,professional and I would highly recommend his services.

Mr. Rafanelli was there when I needed him. He handled my case with courtesy and professionalism, and I felt that he kept my best interests at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend him as counsel to any in need. He was obviously very experienced, and respected in the courtroom.

Simply said, Kerry Rafanelli is a person who has the unique ability to make a difficult personal process for a couple manageable. He is highly competent and professional, but also caring, involved, and funny. He puts people at ease, and finds ways to reach common ground. In fact, it is these qualities that I believe make him most effective at what he does. I know Kerry's personal approach can help you as we'll.

Choosing the right attorney to represent your legal matter is extremely important whatever the situation. Mr. Rafanelli walked me through the entire legal process, gave me all the facts and coached me every step of the way. Emotions can run high during legal situations and having a lawyer that guides you both legally and emotionally can be critical to the process. Mr. Rafanelli was my advocate, voice of reason, fought hard, didn't back down, and got me what was fair and just. I highly recommend his law firm.

Kerry is the first attorney I have ever had to hire. In looking for the right attorney to handle my divorce I met with numerous attorneys in the Rhode Island area. Upon my first meeting with Kerry I could tell that he was different (in a good way.) I was comfortable talking with him, he was very understanding and patient while listening to the story of my situation, and very generous with his time. I was looking for an attorney with whom I could communicate easily, that was willing to listen to what I wanted and operate with restraint, but who also had the "fire power" to fight for me if things turned ugly. I felt that Kerry had these qualities, and indeed he did. He is extremely knowledgeable and has the experience needed to smoothly navigate the pitfalls that surround a divorce. I relied on Kerry to see me through a very difficult and painful situation and he guided me through and made it possible for me to achieve the outcome that I desired. Kerry Rafanelli is as excellent divorce attorney and I highly recommend him.

My divorce was very difficult. Without Kerrys knowledge and guidence it would have been even worse.He guided me threw the whole divorce process and made sure the outcome was fair for me and my children. When my divorce was final I felt that I had been treated fairly and honestly.

At this time, I wanted to take a moment first to thank Kerry for his attempts at resolving my situation through mediation. During this past summer, Kerry met with my husband and me a few times. As much as I hoped it would work, I had a strong feeling we were heading in another direction due to the complexity of our situation. We have since hired other attorneys to handle the divorce. Regardless, Kerry was great to work with during these sessions. His sense of humor helped keep the atmosphere light enough to be productive without demeaning the situation, which actually meant something to me. He had a way of responding for me so I didn’t have to join an already heated discussion. It has been a very difficult road thus far, one that I know I will be traveling for a while. Although my situation was not able to be resolved with mediation, I would highly recommend Kerry’s expertise, especially during a very difficult time where no one is really prepared to handle. I am very grateful not only for Kerry’s advice and professionalism, but also his ability to read a situation to help prompt productive conversations. Thank you, Kerry, for your patience and kindness.

Kerry made me feel at ease throughout the process. He was extremely helpful in guiding me through the maze of divorce. Anytime I had an question or concern he would always call me back and was very giving of his time. He was recommended to me by a friend at work and would definitely recommend him to others. He is professional in all aspects and have the upmost respect for his skills as an attorney. I would also like to add that his assistant (Nicole) is great to work with and was always very helpful if I any questions about the divorce process. They make a great team!

I would like to add my recommendation for Kerry Rafanelli. He has been my lawyer for the past 20 years. While representing me , his main concern has always been fairness and justice. In addition, many times over the years he has advised me in family issues. He was never too busy to return my calls. He is knowledgeable, professional and honest in any legal matter I have brought to him. Anyone searching for a competent, respectful lawyer should look to Kerry.
