Meet Richard Rafferty

Attorney Richard Rafferty has over 29 years of experience fighting for the rights and freedoms of people living throughout Massachusetts. He is a 1983 graduate of Worcester State College, a 1988 graduate of New England School of Law, and continues to find opportunities to develop his craft and better serve his clients.

He brings into each case a level of determination, expertise, and passion, as well as the respect of judges and prosecutors, making it possible for him to help his clients get the results they deserve.

Attorney Rafferty is passionate about his work with local labor unions and remains invested in representing these unions and the incredible work they do.
