Exceptional Service
I have known Paul for many years through our military careers. He was an exemplary officer and when I needed the services of a talented attorney, I immediately contacted him. He has represented me in a variety of legal situations ranging from wills for my parents to divorce for myself. I have the highest regard for Paul and I recommend him highly.

Very skilled lawyer who will fight for his clients!
Atty Pederzani provided excellent representation for my divorce and child support cases. He has a calm and informative manner that put me at ease. In the court, however, he is aggressive and fought so I received everything I deserved. Several friends have used him and were also highly satisfied. Would highly recommend!

Professional, Knowledgable, & Smart
Sometimes you get lucky choosing a good lawyer and sometimes you can tell from the first 5 minutes of your conversation that you are talking to an experienced lawyer with a sharp mind who can handle his own in and out of the court room. Paul excels in family court matters, but his skills go well beyond. His work ethic and ethically compass are superior to anything I've seen. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has a need for an attorney of these discriptions.

The premier divorce attorney in Rhode Island for military cases
During long divorce proceedings, Attorney Pederzani worked with me patiently and professionally.His office manager always kept me informed, and I truly felt that the three of us were an effective team which resulted in a positive outcome for both the divorce settlement and, later, an increase in the child support. He's very knowledgable about the technicalities of military divorces and I would highly recommend him.
