About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

I started my own law practice in June of 2017 after working for two prior busy firms.  I have been practicing law since the year 2000, and I am taking all of my years of experience to focus on my client's individual legal needs.  I have extensive experience in the Family Court for all family court matters, District and Superior Court for all criminal matters and the Traffic Court for all motor vehicle violations.  I also have handled hundreds of personal injury claims obtaining the best possible results for my clients. Through my years of practicing as an attorney I have developed relationships and strategies to better suit my clients' needs and achieve the best results for my clients.  I have been enjoying running my own practice by helping many new clients, and developing many more relationships as a sole practitioner.  I urge anyone with a legal need to schedule a free consultation and hopefully become part of the Biafore Law family.

Excellent representation and straight forward advice
Chris was extremely upfront about expectations and handled my divorce with blunt honesty, realistic expectations and charged a flat fee. I am very happy with the outcome, and I had even made his job difficult at times through poor judgement and adverse actions that did not help my case, but in the end, we got great results and he was able to keep the custody and finance settelment reasonable. I highly reccomend him and his paralegal also was very helpful in a time of great stress and uncertainty.

He did what everyone said would be impossible
I knew that obtaining sole custody would be a long shot. I was warned by family and friends that sole custody is hardly ever awarded and I should not spend money trying to obtain the impossible. Attorney Chris Biafore promised that he would do everything he can for me and my situation and he succeeded. I would highly recommend this attorney for all matters. He is knowledgeable and transparent with clients. I could not have asked for better results.

Exceptional and Genuine
I reached out to Chris a couple days before my arraignment for a speeding ticket. I had not realized just how serious moving violations are taken in Rhode Island. This was my 4th in 18 months, making me eligible for the consequences outlined in the Colin Foote Act (volunteer hours, a hefty fine, driving reeducation and license suspension). I had never fought a ticket before and as soon as I discovered the potential ramifications of my latest, I began reaching out to lawyers. Chris was quick to respond, calling me on a weekend while he was away. His assistant/office administrator was very helpful. Whereas other lawyers routed me around to other lawyers within their office, Chris personally handled my questions and case. He was timely, effective and efficient. Also honest with me before I hired him, preparing me for the possible consequences. When I came to my court date (a half hour early), Chris was already there speaking with the police officer and judge. I was immediately called up and somehow was able to walk away with probation and a 60 hour reeducation course. Beyond my wildest expectations. Highly recommend!

The Best
The first time hiring Chris, he traveled to Fall River on a referral from a close friend to defend a close family member of mines. To make a long story short he was able to get an immediate release for my loved one on a fugitive from justice charge. Most attorneys wouldn’t have fought half as hard as Chris did to get my family member released. Again this was the first time I ever met him.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney
I hired Christopher Biafore to represent a friend's son, who had a complicated probation violation and was likely facing a few years in prison. Chris was a able to work a miracle where the young man was released from jail, saved from prison time that would have likely ruined his life, and received the counseling he needed. Chris did exactly what he said he would do. He was totally professional and produced a rockstar result. We could not be more grateful.

Family court
Chris was excellent! He managed to clean up a family court matter that was complicated, involving 3 different states. Chris did it with minimal issues and even made it so my ex didn't need to return to the state. The emancipation of my other daughter was cleared up at the same time so there should be no issues when she is emancipated.

Could not have asked for a better attorney.
As a newly single father I had been given terrible access and visitation to my son. I had attempted multiple times to consult with my ex about a better visitstion schedule and she had refused every attempt. I needed to take this matter up in court but I had no idea how to go about it. I set up a meeting with Chris, he stayed late to meet with me as I live in Connecticut and it is not easy to make it to Rhode Island. We talked about my situation and he asked me what I wanted for visitation. He assured me that he would get me the proper visitation any parent deserves. He filed the paperwork through the court and in no time we had our court date set. The day of, he helped keep me at ease and again, assured me there was nothing to worry about. After a brief meeting with the judge and my ex's attorney, it was ordered that I have my proper alternating weekends which were to start the following weekend. We left the courthouse with another date already set to discuss vacation and holidays. He helped me understand how most holiday and vacation schedules are made and when the day came, once again, he had delivered as promised. I owe it all to him for the wonderful weekends and joyous holidays I have been spending with my son. My whole family, as well as myself, are entirely grateful. Thank you.

Chris has done excellent work for both me and my family. His work for me has ranged from representing me in my divorce in a timely and effective manner to helping my kids in traffic court for both minor and major situations. I would highly recommend him in both situations.

The first case was a personal injury matter, and the second case was a complex divorce. Since I practice in the field of real estate law, I needed to find my clients the best advocate for their litigation matters. I personally know Chris to be a well trusted attorney who is extremely skilled in the fields of family law and personal injury law. He expertly handled both cases with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. It was so reassuring to know that at all times, Chris had my clients best interest in mind. Both of my clients were tremendously pleased with the outcome of their individual cases, and they both told me that they would refer Chris to their family and friends. I wholeheartedly endorse Chris, and I will continue to recommend his services to my clients. Thank you, Lisa Cooper, Esq."
