About Our Practice

Stephen Bragdon came to Keene and started as a sole practitioner in 1975, above the old Cheshire County Bank building at the corner of Roxbury Street and Main Street. The Holbrook House on Court Street, an historical architectural gem, has been home to the firm since 1981 when the partnership included Stephen Bragdon, H. Neil Berkson, and Phillip Mangones.  Since that time, Attorney Bragdon has shared the practice with different iterations of young lawyers, many of whom went on to establish respected firms of their own in the Keene area.

Bragdon, Baron & Kossayda is a general practice law firm, and has served hundreds of clients in the southern New Hampshire area. With the addition of Attorney Elana Baron, we can serve residents of Vermont. Attorney Baron and Attorney Kossayda are both licensed in Massachusetts also.
