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.

I certainly would recommend Kerry Rafanelli to anyone who needs an excellent divorce lawyer. He gets right to the point, covers all the bases (even those you didn't know you needed to cover) and you just know he has your back all the way. He knew what he was doing in court and I feel very fortunate that I had him representing me in my divorce.

On the day I met with Kerry Rafanelli regarding legal representation for my divorce, I was put at ease by his professionalism and compassion as I explained my personal situation. He listened, asked all the right questions and immediately planned to do what was best for the future of my children and myself. Kerry explained the divorce process to me step-by-step and answered every question I had until I was satisfied. He is straight forward with his legal fees and there were no surprises as far as additional fees. On the day of court Kerry was well prepared and guided me through the proceedings smoothly. He said he would get me through it... and he delivered. In my opinion, Kerry's invaluable legal experience and exceptional personality make him by far an attorney you want representing you!

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.
