After years of feeling like I was being taken advantage of in a family court matter I finally decided to change the status quo. I search for a local family law attorney and there she was right down the street. My first impression was of an intelligent, tough, take charge human being. Wow! I was right. I came to find out she was professional and organized too. My case had merits and she was informative throughout the whole process. She was wonderful in court to watch her work her craft. You might think she is a machine at times which is great for your case but she has a personal side that lets you know she is human. Clearly I am impressed by Rachel. She almost makes me wish I needed an attorney for something else, almost! laugh out loud.
Rachel was by my side and available to me throughout my divorce. She worked with me to make sure we kept the costs down, since I was on a very limited budget. She was fair and reasonable on the property settlement agreement for both myself and my ex-husband so that we wouldn't have to spend unnecessary money fighting over the little stuff. When we went to court for the final judgment I was very comfortable in front of the Judge with her by my side.
The office staff was very supportive, always knew what was going on, how they could be of help and able to get answers for me quickly.
I would recommend Rachel and her office to anyone and have.
When I first made contact with Rachel Cotrino, I was at my wits end with the issue of child support. For years I was going nowhere and felt like no one cared. Finding Rachel online was very easy, Rachel turned out to be the best Lawyer anyone could ever ask for, getting things done on a timely basis. I was out of state and had no choice but to trust her. Her knowledge. and her response time to all court documents was impeccable, always keeping me informed proved her to be trustworthy. At one point the court system was dragging it's feet, and I thought that things were coming to a halt, but Rachel with her great persistence never gave up , and because of her I can say that the very large Monkey I had on my back for years is now gone. Life is better now, Thanks to Rachel Cotrino.

She always provided me with sound advice and has a wealth of knowledge in so many aspects and areas. I strongly recommend retaining Rachel! You will not be disappointed at all

I took my time in choosing a lawyer and in the end i chose Rachel Cottrino. My choice was based on the reviews her other clients wrote. I made an appointment and from the minute I spoke with her I was hooked and knew I made the right choice. She listened to me ,she understood what i wanted, and most important told me she will take care of me. She handled everything very professional and got me exactly what i asked for and always reassured me that everything would be ok. I would also like to give some credit to her assistant Jayme, who also was very professional, always followed through on everything. She too responded to every question and always sent me copies in a timely manner. After my settlement conference, which was orchestrated by Rachel, went off without a hitch and the paperwork was signed, I could not be more pleased. Ms. Cotrino kept assuring me everything would be ok and she was absolutely correct.. I would reccomend her to anyone and actually i already have. All the negative things you hear about Attorney,s in general, can be forgotten when you enter Rachel's office. She made a very upsetting and nervous experience into a very cordial and relaxing situation and you always felt better after speaking with her. I can only give high praise for a job well done and find no negatives whatsoever . Her knowledge of the law and her demeanor are a wonderfull combination which will keep her at the top of her game .
