Excellent attorney!!!
Josh Raffini is an excellent attorney, and I highly recommend him. He is very personable and has helped me with my will and estate planning. In addition, most recently he guided me through a property acquisition. He was very thorough and ensured that I was properly represented throughout the process. I have never felt this "at ease" with any other attorney I've used in the past - - so I've finally found the attorney who will represent me for the rest of my life!! I'm so happy to call him "my attorney".

Very reliable, responsive and genuine.
First off, he did a wonderful job!! Previous to Mr. Raffini, I had another lawyer. I felt my case was falling through, but he turned it around. I ended up with a great outcome and I have him to thank. He was very responsive and gave all the details of what was to be expected and possible outcomes. I definitely recommend him for representation and you won't be disappointed.

Divorce/Child Support
I used Mr.Raffini for my divorce/child support case he was not only an excellent lawyer his follow through was Great! He not only got me all I wanted he also uncovered a lot of things to help my case that I didn’t know of. He was a great attorney and I would definitely use him again or recommend him! He fought for my divorce and also got my child support which I wasn’t getting before he fought to get me what I derseveed for my kids and my self. I met with a couple of attorneys before him and I must say I’m glad that josh was my pick.

Very straight forward
I obtained Mr Raffini's services a little over a year ago. Mr Raffini was there each time I contacted him and was always very helpful. I will say Mr Raffini is a very straight forward person, he will not put on a show for you to get your business. Mr Raffini will however always give you sound advise and will always treat you like you are his #1 priority. I would 100% recommend Mr Raffini and will use him again if i need another legal service.

He breaks the mold!!
I retained Mr. Raffini to litigate in a rather difficult matter. From the "get go" his approach was we can get this thing done. He never wavered and worked extremely diligent throughout. Whether I win or loose, I cannot fault this attorney in any way, he worked relentlessly. To compound matters, I would be hard pressed to find a situation where he did not reply to my e-mail within an hour. workday or otherwise and, that's where he broke the mold. How I wish that all attorneys would respond to clients within 48 hours much less an hour. God bless 'em and I wish him continued great success in his career.

Closing attorney
I used Josh Rafini as my closing attorney. Everything was done in a timely manner and we closed on the house on the projected closing date. I also used Mr. Rafinin for other personal matters. He always kept me informed so I new what was going on. I was never left wondering. He always advised and gave me information to help make decisions. in addition to his professional experiance, he is very affordable. That is important because legal fees can go through the roof! I would recommend him to anybody.

Excellent work on family law case
I had negotiated a lump sum payment with my ex-wife in order to put an end to a lifetime alimony order. Josh Raffini evaluated the situation and told me what we had to provide to the family court and what to expect as we went through the process. He was an excellent communicator in person and via e-mail and delivered exactly what we needed. He is highly recommended for cases similar to this one.

Help with Security Deposit
Josh was amazing! He gave me sound advice on the steps to take to recover my Security Deposit from a previous landlord. When the formal request did not get the expected result...he quickly took action and sent correspondence from himself as my attorney. This did garner the expected result without the added fees of magistrate court!

Thankful
I hired Josh to handle my divorce in June 2015. Over the past year of working with him, he never failed to answer any of my queations, always listened to my opinions and concerns, and most of all, kept mine and my two small children's best interest first and foremost. I am so thankful I chose him to be my lawyer, and for all of his hard work and dedication to my case.
