Nicholas R. Raffaele, Esquire

Having experienced divorce firsthand as a child, I fully appreciate the gravity of the work we do at Phillips & Peters, PLLC. I always considered using my legal career to help families navigate their own difficult times, and working at William & Mary Law School’s Family Law and Domestic Violence Clinics catalyzed that idea into my current practice. I strive to vigorously advocate on behalf of my clients while guiding them to seek common ground when prudent.
