Kerry's knowledge of the law and court room presence is second to none. After being put in a very difficult situation I am glad that I had Kerry on my side. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of representation.

I hired Kerry in April, 2016 to handle my divorce. After meeting with him, I was immediately put at ease that he knew what he was doing, was fair-minded and well-grounded, and I could count on him for good counsel in dissolving a very long term marriage. He was respectful of both me and my then husband. Most importantly, he was a rational voice in a highly emotional situation and kept me (and actually both of us) focused on the important matters. He and his office staff were very efficient.

Very satisfied with my divorce case. Kerrie represented my interests very well, and I'm very satisfied with my divorce settlement. He's not inexpensive, but well worth it in the long run.

Kerry has the experience to help his clients reach their goals in family court. Even better, he can do divorce mediation so that divorcing partners don't have to spend a fortune on legal fees and engage in a potentially destructive court proceedings. However, if your spouse is not reasonable and your rights are being trampled Attorney Rafanelli is an Attorney you want in your corner. He knows the law inside and out and has a deep knowledge of the RI Family Courts and how to best position issues so his clients can be successful.
