I’ve been using Paul Ferns for several years now. Originally I had a different lawyer and he wasn’t on top of my case. I soon after had switched to Paul and haven’t had another attorney since. He has helped in numerous car accident cases and a few driving violation cases as well. He also has given advice on family issues and legalities of different situations I was in need of help with. I’ve always left his office happy and extremely satisfied with the results. He’s answered every question I’ve had an has been very attentive to my cases. He’s a breath of fresh air and very professional. Definitely has a way of making you feel comfortable. Breaks down all aspects of the cases I’ve presented to him and which ways we are able to go. Absolutely recommend Paul for all of your legal needs. He’s knowledgeable in many areas of law which is a plus is any great attorney!!

Paul Ferns is the only choice when you need an Attorney
I had a particularly complicated Divorce that had a house, assets, debt and other considerations that needed an experienced Lawyer that could navigate the Rhode Island legal system quickly and easily. Attorney Ferns not only made the whole process easy but we were able to come to an agreement with my spouse and get a judgement much faster than I anticipated. With over 24 years experience he really understands the law and is a great negotiator. I can not recommend Paul Ferns enough if you need his services. He will get things done and will ensure that you get a fast and fair judgement.

30 Year old Traffic issue
I am an out of state guy who needed a traffic issue addressed...a 30 year old traffic issue....My home state was not going to renew my license because of an unpaid ticket from 1987 ...I figured it was going to take months...because in dealing with the DMV.... I already had over 2 months of waiting. I called Paul on a Friday issue was taken care of by the following Wed including the documentation which was in my files by Wed afternoon. Very positive customer service experience.

Excellent Service
Attorney Ferns was an excellent choice in my divorce case. He was available at all times for consultations, knowledgeable of the laws, and helped to make this process easier. I would definitely recommend to anyone needing a good lawyer.

Simply the best!
Paul and his staff are (for a lack of a better word)AWESOME! As is the case with most "busy" law firms, I expected to get the old "run around, or vague responses when trying to get updates on my case. But I got just the opposite, they keep me up to date when any info was available. They called and checked on my well being from time to time. When ever I had a question I got answers and when my case was settled Paul went over everything and made sure I didn't have any other questions (which I had quite a few at the beginning).

Best Lawyer in Rhode Island
I hired Paul to take on a custody case. He is honest, made me feel like I was his only client (when I was not), does everything in the best interest of his client. He faught for me under the worst circumstances, and achieved the best outcome! Paul is an outstanding lawyer. If you want a lawyer who will fight for you, you need to hire Paul. Believe me you won't regret hiring Paul. He goes above and beyond! Give him a call and you will see what I am talking about.

very good/helpful
att ferns was very good in solving my traffic violation. I called three others but no one called me back I called 2 back 2 times no return calls. I called and left message with att. ferns and he called me back next morning. he worked diligently on my case and was able to resolve it in about a week. if my case had not been resolved my life would have been changed drastically. I hope I never need another lawyer but if I do attorney paul ferns is the first person I call.

Honest- so unlike other attorneys
I mean have you EVER heard of an honest attorney? They are far and few between, right? Well, Paul Ferns is one of them. He is the only attorney that I personally know that will NOT tell you stories or sales pitch you to get hired. He is forthright, honest and easy to talk to. He is also a family man, so he really understands what the struggles in Family Court are like. Family is the most important aspect in his life and he will definitely help you through the tough times.

Best attorney in the state!!
Paul is an amazing attorney and his paralegal Jill is an absolute sweetheart to deal with. Paul handled my child custody and child support matter. He was knowledgable, diligent and mastered the courtroom. Hire him NOW!!!
