  • Doris F. Tennant

    Rachel is a very skillful and knowledgeable attorney, mediator, and negotiator. I have worked with Rachel very successfully in many Collaborative divorce cases in which the parties and attorneys commit to settlement negotiations in a series of carefully planned meetings. Rachel understands how to work with the attorney representing the other party in a productive and efficient manner, while being very mindful of her client's interests and the parameters of the law. Her assets include compassion and a sense of humor.
