Practice areas
  1. Divorce and separation
    42%
    Divorce is a difficult process to navigate. I assist my clients to maintain a forward looking perspective and remain focused on the children when appropriate.

    22 years, 88 cases

  2. Uncontested divorce
    42%
    The "Best" divorce is when the parties have come to an agreement before you come to court. This may be achieved by negotiation or mediation. Litigation is the worst case scenario and is generally best avoided, when possible.

    22 years, 99 cases

  3. Child custody
    9%
    "Our child" is one of the most difficult phrases for separated parents to employ. Children deserve to have both parents involved in their lives. Put them first, put aside relational differences and do the best for them that you can as they are y/our future.

    22 years, 142 cases

  4. Criminal defense
    4%
    A competent attorney is critical to protecting your liberty in any criminal matter.

    22 years, 25 cases

  5. Child support

  6. Copyright infringement
    1%
    Protecting your assets is a critical aspect of maintaining your business... including intangible rights like copyrights.

Admitted to practice in 2003 in Rhode Island and Massachusetts Courts.

Co-Parenting is one of the biggest challenges to divorcing couples with children. I advise all of my client's with children to not poison them with the conflict and make them their priority as divorce does not(usually) terminate parenthood.

Great Attorney
I had a consultation over the phone with Mr Bedford. I did not feel rushed. I took my time to explain my case. He is very honest and gave me valuable advice. Thank you Mr Neville

Not a lawyer, a representative for YOU!
I asked a really tough question, and most lawyer's I've personally spoken to have, essentially, said (nicely): "Thank you but no thank you." But this was not the case with Attorney Bedford, which gives me the confidence that when times are tough, he is someone I can count on.

Honest Thorough Knowledgeable Attorney
My case was an extremely difficult case. It concerned my husband who for 8 months had been running with and hiding Children I had custody of through several states. My husband was very difficult and confrontational and attempted to lie to the court, which caused undo problems and major obstacles. My attorney worked until midnight at times to ensure the success of my case, even showing up at scene where police and other officials had to break the door down at a house where my husband was keeping our children. He was compassionate and very knowledgeable about the aspects of my case. He is an amazing character and has character. My case was apparently one of only a few cases like this and he is the attorney that has won all of them. He has been an attorney for many many many years and I recommend him very highly.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH NEVILLE BEDFORD
Neville Bedford just helped me to get a divorce that I never thought I'd be able to get. Neville explained to me what was going to happen and how long it would take and just how he explained it that is was exactly how it happened, he was always available when I needed to ask questions and he always got back to me right. I would strongly recommend Neville Bedford until the day I die if you need a divorce and I ever need a lawyer ever again I would not think twice to call him.

More than a lawyer..
Neville Bedford is one of those professionals that get recommended by word-of-mouth. He does everything right. For me, he was all I needed to get through a very difficult period. He either answered his own phone or quickly returned phone calls; gave great advice; made recommendations and led me through the whole process. All the while keeping me entertained with his quick wit and sense of humor. Overall, I don't like lawyers. Most are in the business to milk whatever they can from whomever they can. But Neville is human being first - and honest. I highly recommend Mr. Bedford.

Great person
Mr Bedford is very professional, kind and personable. He helped me get through a hard period in my life. He is very easy to talk to and will answer your questions in a timely manner. He has a great sense of humor but when it comes time to be serious he is very good at articulating and communicated his clients needs and interests.
