“Newport Solar was part of a coalition that retained Handy Law to represent the group in proceedings before the Rhode Island Public Utility Commission. Handy Law secured NERI’s ability to participate and was critical to the positive outcome of the proceedings, not only for NERI, but for all ratepayers in RI. We know of no more experienced and informed law firm when it comes to matters before the RI PUC, legislation and rules regarding the environment and energy in Rhode Island.”

Doug Sabetti, President, Newport Solar

“Handy Law has been instrumental to the success of our business in Rhode Island. They guided us through a proceeding at the Public Utilities Commission that allowed us to interconnect the state’s first community net metering facility. Across the board, their advocacy has advanced clean energy interests to the benefit of all Rhode Islanders.”

Mike Lucini, ISM Solar Solutions, Inc.

“Specializing in clean energy projects, Seth and Helen are the most expert attorneys in this field in Rhode Island. I’ve worked with them on project permitting, financing and contracts. They resolve challenges and really help to make projects and transactions happen. Their documents are clear and concise. They turn work around quickly.


I have also worked with Seth on clean energy policy issues for over a decade and with Helen since she joined the firm. They have helped shape the most important energy policies in Rhode Island. When they have engaged utilities and other obstacles to clean energy progress at the Public Utility Commission or in the courts, they have usually won important victories that have helped to advance our clean energy future.”

Fred Unger, President, Heartwood Group, Inc., Renewable Energy Project Developer

“I have had incredibly good fortune to work with Handy Law, and I have found their proficiency, attention to detail and professionalism to be exceptional. The legal team quickly jumped on-board to learn our business and they have been instrumental in advising us with our legal and strategic decisions ever since.


As we all know, legal matters can become challenging and extremely complex. The Handy legal team, despite any challenges, was always responsive to our needs, flexible with changes and always punctual. On top of that, they always placed customer service as their top priority. Their knowledge of best practices in commercial law practices allowed us to be successful in our sales agreements. In complex negotiations their contributions led us to achieve maximum value for our deals.


All good entrepreneurs and business owners know that having a strong legal adviser is essential for success. Having the Handy law team in my corner, was critical to our success and I look forward to working with the team for years to come. “

Mark Hawkins, Dry Bridge Sand & Gravel, Inc.

“Seth is a valuable teammate on the development and implementation of our multi-town energy strategy in Washington County. He’s extraordinarily responsive, producing his work in surprising time and is thorough and diligent. He truly cares about seeing our good work through and he’s been a pleasure to work with. We’re proud he chose to work with us, and hope the relationship continues for many years.”
