“When I first engaged with Toni Rafanelli, I was immediately impressed with her prompt level of response, attention to detail and high level of professionalism.  These key attributes have held up over several years of her providing me counsel.  Toni possesses a strong command of the law and legal system procedures.  She is well respected by her peers in the legal community and this earned respect inherently helped me with a very complicated legal matter.  Toni Rafanelli brings a special "bedside manner" to her clients.  She truly cares about her clients and brings a new meaning to the term "client service”.  Ultimately she is a trustworthy legal practitioner with the highest level of integrity.  Toni Rafanelli is a "Go To" legal resource and has my highest recommendation.  You will not regret retaining services from Attorney Rafanelli.”

“I hired Toni after my first attorney had drafted a poor divorce agreement that limited my visitation and participation in my son’s life. I learned afterwards that having only joint legal custody (which I agreed to on advice of my original lawyer) means very little and that my ex-wife was able to make all decisions affecting my son without my input. Even though I was in this difficult situation, Toni was able to prevent my ex-wife from moving out of the country with my son, and eventually, with her help, I was able to have much greater day-to-day involvement. At age 15, my son decided that he wanted a change in the custodial arrangements and Toni helped us through this very challenging process. Unlike some other lawyers I have dealt with, she was truly interested in what was in my son’s and my best interest, not what was easiest for her. Toni knows her way around the courthouse and how to get things done and I appreciate all that she did for my son and me.”
