Kristine S. Trocki opened her Jamestown, Rhode Island law firm in 2006 and has been practicing law in RI for over 15 years. Dedicated to serving her clients and the local community, Kristine opened her doors not only with a strong knowledge of the law but with an equal desire to practice in a way that is creative, intelligent, and mindful, thus offering clients several approaches to addressing/fulfilling their legal needs. Kristine has applied this philosophy to her many areas of practice including: Mediation; Divorce & Family Law; Personal Injury & Auto Accidents; Wills, Healthcare & Financial Powers of Attorney; Probate; Contract & Business Law; Employment Law; Landlord/Tenant Law; Medical Malpractice; Products Liability; Wrongful Death; DUI & Criminal Defense; Collections; Real Estate; and Zoning and Land Use.

Kristine earned a J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law and both an M.A. in Political Science and International Relations and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Rhode Island. Most recently, Kristine received her Certification as a Family & Divorce Mediator from the Roger Williams University School of Law in 2010 and is on the Rhode Island Court-Approved Mediator List. Kristine is licensed to practice in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, and she has been admitted to the United States District Court, District of Rhode Island as well as the United States District Court, Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Prior to opening her own
practice, Kristine worked as an associate in the civil litigation firm of Medeiros and Sanford, and she also spent several years as a litigation associate, first at Taylor, Duane, Barton & Gilman located in Providence, RI and Boston, MA and then at Harrison Law Associates, also located in Providence. Before her career as an Attorney, Kristine acquired a great deal of experience working in a variety of legal settings, including clerking at the firms of Adler, Pollock & Sheehan and Tillinghast, Licht & Semonoff. Kristine also interned at the United States Attorneyʼs Office in Providence Rhode Island, the Rhode Island Supreme Court, and the Rhode Island Public Defenderʼs Office.

In addition to her practice in Jamestown, Kristine is currently involved with numerous organizations and associations. A member of the Rhode Island, Massachusetts and American Bar Associations, Kristine is proud to be a member of the Rhode Island Mediators Association as she strongly believes in the power of resolving disputes between parties whenever possible without the time and financial drains of prolonged litigation.

On November 6, 2012 and again on November 4, 2014, Kristine was elected to the Jamestown Town Council after receiving the highest number of votes in both elections. Kristine was unanimously selected to be President of the Jamestown Town Council by her fellow councilors for both terms. Kristine was proud and excited to be able to serve her community in this important capacity and to bring her creative approach to town government. Kristine retired from the Town Council in November 2018. In March 2011, Kristine was elected to a three-year term to serve on the board of the Jamestown Chamber of Commerce, where she promoted the community's many wonderful small businesses. Kristine, at the time, was the longest standing member of the Board.

Kristine is also a member of the Newport County Chamber of Commerce, and she had served on the Board of Trustees and as PTL President of the Rocky Hill School in East Greenwich, Rhode Island. Currently, Kristine volunteers as a member of the Volunteer Lawyers Program through the Rhode Island Bar Association, and in 2011 she served as a mock trial coach for Rocky Hill School. Kristine also enjoys volunteering at the Navy's annual moot court competition on the base in Newport. She resides in Jamestown with her son, Teddy, and her yellow lab, Scout.

    "I really want to thank the both of you for all your help. You were so instrumental in getting me through this process. And to be honest, I’m really glad I hired women! Not only were you guys knowledgeable but you were also great for emotional support! Kristine, you were a rock star yesterday. And what I appreciated the most is that you didn’t instigate. You truly wanted us to come to a compromise. Divorce lawyers have this horrible reputation of trying to cause discord between their clients so they can rack up the fee’s. You both were so supportive in trying to push this process along so it didn’t turn into a huge court battle.
    You guys are great. I can’t thank you enough. I’m so happy it’s OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    "Through all of this, I have been so incredibly grateful for your responsiveness, for your obvious attention to the details of our situation and for you keeping me informed as things have progressed. All of those things have made an unpleasant and stressful situation much easier to bear. Most importantly, you will never fully know what you have done for my daughter. I can't stop thinking about how your efforts on our behalf have changed the quality of life for both me and my daughter. You have affected both our present and our future. I truly hope that the two of you do not lose sight of the fact that what you do has that power. I hope that your clients remind you often of how you have helped them and of how much they appreciate your efforts to do so. In closing, please know that tomorrow will be the best Mother's Day that I will have had in many years. I am deeply grateful to both of you for that. Thank you for everything you have done for us. "

They are exceptional listeners, gifted attorneys, and cost sensitive planners. We are always pleased at the depth and the breadth of their collective abilities and knowledge of the law."
