Deborah Rankin Paralegal


Deborah joined Bernazzani Law as a paralegal in May 2011 with a focus mostly in family law, trusts, and estates. Since then, she has expanded her areas to include immigration, an area she has grown to love and become well-versed in. Deb has a passion for learning and obtained her associate degree from Castle College in Windham, New Hampshire.

Prior to joining Bernazzani Law, Deb worked as a paralegal in New Hampshire since 1997, working for other prestigious attorneys in the area, as well as for a retired New Hampshire judge. Additionally, Deb worked as a guardian ad litem for the state of New Hampshire for a period of four years — a job she did exceptionally well. Working as a guardian ad litem gave her much perspective on how divorce/separation affects children, an insight that many legal professionals are not privy to in their careers. As such, Deb’s diverse experience allows her to approach cases with a broad understanding and a compassionate heart.

Deb is currently a member of the Paralegal Association of New Hampshire, as well as a member of American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). Deb has had the privilege of attending the annual AILA conference with Attorney Bernazzani, and she looks forward to further broadening her knowledge in immigration law.

Deb married her husband, Steve, in 1999, and they have two children, Evan and Olivia. Deb and her family enjoy many activities together, including camping, hiking, paddle boarding, spending days at the beach, and watching Evan and Olivia’s various sporting events.

What Sets Us Apart From The Rest?

Bernazzani Law is here to help you get the results you need with a team you can trust.

  • Reasonability
    Some attorneys portray themselves as bulldogs. However, being overly aggressive is not always effective. When a fight is necessary, we fight. But when it is clear that a negotiated or mediated solution can yield better results — and the client wants this — we do not hesitate to follow the more fruitful path.
  • Advocacy
    This is another way of saying "we've got your back." Retain our firm, and we will advocate for you in the strongest possible manner. We are dedicated to helping you and your family.
  • Flexibility
    Our training and experience as mediators, negotiators and litigators give us a full suite of options to bring to your legal problem. Whether a court fight or a mutually agreeable solution is in your best interest, we are flexible enough to serve you. We make ourselves available by email, phone and through our helpful and competent staff.
  • Empathy
    We listen to our clients, and we relate to their problems — always providing clients, and their concerns, the time and attention required. We believe that understanding our clients is vital to helping them resolve those problems.
