Finding Rachel was one of the best things to ever happen to me. She made my immigration case run smoothly, was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and attentive to all of my needs and questions. I achieved everything I wanted to with Rachel's assistance and I couldn't recommend her any higher.

Rachel Self did a first rate job handling my immigration case. She made sure that I understood the process, explained step by step what i needed to do, and quickly replied to all of my inquiries. When i came to see Rachel I was expecting to have to pay for post conviction relief services which other lawyers had told me I would need, but Rachel reviewed my case and saved me a lot of money on unnecessary legal work which speaks to her honesty and dedication to her clients. I would strongly recommend Rachel Self to anyone.

When faced with the situation that I could never imagine in my wildest dreams, I was completely aware that my case was not an easy one with all evidence against me and that too in the county court known for being too harsh in their judgments. However right from the get go, Rachel was compassionate, made us feel easy and in turn gained our confidence and trust. I was super impressed how meticulously Rachel put the packet together for the DA, which DA also acknowledged that it was done so well. Rachel listened to us very ardently and noted every small detail. She negotiated with the DA and got the result before hand, where on the court date we just went in and out. Despite being an extremely busy attorney, Rachel always available over the phone and emails. For me the biggest comfort was that I was speaking and working with her directly as opposed to any other person or legal assistant in her office. I always knew that Rachel had my back where she held my hand to help navigate through the labyrinth of Criminal Justice system and Immigration system – by balancing them with excellence and finesse. Rachel has been my advocate in every true sense and word. The results that Rachel got was the best possible option that I could hope for considering the deportation ramifications and delay in my citizenship application. Having worked with many business and immigration attorneys before, for immigration & criminal matters Rachel is the best in her league. Rachel comes with all my highest recommendations.

This was the second time we used her with no disappointments. Very trustworthy and she tells you exactly what can be expected and never gives you false hopes. She is very nurturing at the same times because she has empathy toward the situation. Really looks into your situation does her homework on the case and gives you the good and the bad. I really would use her again, I have twice and just love her personality and just how she can calm us down at our worst times.

I was in a desperate situation when I met Rachel. She was very realistic when she saw my case, and said I was very difficult but not impossible. Today, after many years I can happily say that my legal situation is resolved and can be with no worries with my husband and my two kids in the United States.
She was truly devoted to my case and never gave up.

I would highly recommend Rachel Self to any and everyone seeking justice in any matter.
She is a great advocate for justice and uses her professional skills to the best of her ability and will definitely make you feel comfortable and not alone. During my trial Rachel helped me ease my fears and to trust her with the knowledge she has. If it had been any other way without her, I wouldn't know what the outcome of my case would have been. Ultimately , i was found not guilty to all charges and I am proud for Rachel's hard work and how much she truly does care to do everything she can to give you your freedom. I thank and appreciate her with everything I have.

I had an unfortunate event that happened which required legal representation. Attorney Self was the first individual to come to mind for several reasons. First, is her "Passion" for what she does. I find this characteristic the most compelling. In any field, people who display passion always do a better job. Second, is her calming ability. During that time, my family and I were very anxious. Attorney Self was able to provide comfort to us not false hopes. Her other attributes that I will highlight are wiithout question. Knowledge, experience, and professionalism.

If you are a potential client of Attorney Self and you are reading these reviews, you will notice that all of her past clients make two observations. The first is to comment on her empathy. Attorney Self truly cares about the outcome of your case. Even the slightest detail about your case will not go unnoticed, because she is invested in the court's decision. This directly translates into a favorable outcome for you.
These favorable outcomes also correlate with Attorney Self's protean fund of knowledge, which is the second attribute that all reviewers mention. No legal stone goes unturned. Highly relevant but totally arcane information is sometimes required to engineer positive decisions in a complex and intimidating legal system. Attorney Self and her team specialize in this brand of law, because they do it everyday, and no one is more grateful for that than me.
It is certainly possible to spend more money on your legal defense. You will not be able to hire a more competent attorney. It is no surprise that Attorney Self has such a sterling reputation among her clients and in the legal community.

Rachel was my lawyer recently for a restraining order hearing. She was so helpful through a very difficult time for me. She really seemed to listen to what I had to say and when we went before the judge she was extremely well prepared. Not only did she know the law, she was ready to do battle for me. She is amazing. I have no doubt that it is because of her everything turned out OK. I am so grateful to her. If you ever find yourself in the unfortunate situation of needing a lawyer, Rachel will fight for you and have your back. She is the best lawyer I ever had.

Rachael was our son's lawyer in a criminal defense case. She is the "best thing" that ever could have happened to our son. To say she is intelligent, compassionate ,knowledgeable and competent is simply not enough. She kept us informed every step along the way, which was very important to us as we were "virgins" when it came to the workings of the legal system. At times we were downright confused and could not understand why there were so many court appointments and delays,but she calmed our fears and addressed our concerns with her wisdom and insight and also her "wit" which was sometimes needed. We would wholeheartedly recommend Rachael as a lawyer, but more importantly as a compassionate, caring human being.
