Rachel is extremely easy to work with. She returns telephone calls immediately and explains things in simple language. She did my prenup and I am very pleased with the results. I highly recommend her.

Rachel was professional, she always kept me informed, she explained every detail of my case to me and I really felt like she was on my side and wanted to help. I felt like I could trust her and that made me less anxious. She was also kind. She kept a professional office and her office staff were beyond helpful. She made my divorce as easy as it could be.

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 .

I hired Rachel right there at my consultation! I immediately felt I could trust her and knew that she would work hard and do everything she could to get me the best outcome in my divorce. And she did not disappoint. She walked me through everything from beginning to end and made a very difficult and stressful situation more manageable than I had ever expected it to be. She is smart, always kept me informed and was accessible if I had any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking representation. She won't let you down.

I found Rachel online and set up a phone consultation after reading the positive reviews. Prior to our conversation I had spoken with two other lawyers, but there was something very different about Rachel. I immediately felt as though she wanted to get my divorce settled as quickly as possible and wasn't going to play games. She is extremely professional, highly responsive, and aggressive. We were dealing with an opposing attorney who liked to drag his feet, and Rachel did everything on her part to make the process to as quickly as she could despite what we were dealing with. I highly recommend Rachel.

Listen up ladies and gentleman, I'm going to give you some advise that will save you tens of thousands of dollars probably even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Before you contact any divorce attorney, you need to contact Rachel. don't worry sign with her IMMEDIATELY don't be sold by a fancy Lawyer that will bullshit you!! because they will!! If you made the mistake and already hired a lawyer its not too late, FIRE your lawyer immediately before they take everything you have and then some, then call Rachel, she will take care of you, Rachel cares, I'm telling you this from personnel experience!
Rachel actually saved my future, she can save yours too! but you need to take back the control, If your a man the system is set up to rape you, humiliate you and then they take everything you have! These Lawyers know this and are raking in millions of dollars from your life savings and misery, they have there tricks and deceptions, they will leave you broke and then when they have taken everything from you, they will take your future earnings!!! just like your ex will do!! DO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!
Stop these shyster lawyers from profiting from the system that is skewed in everyway against you! You need someone on your side that cares about you not your money you need someone on your side that isn't collaborating with your ex's attorney running up billing hours DON'T BE STUPID, this happens all the time. Divorces are money printing machine's divorce lawyers. You need a lawyer that cares about YOU not your money! so before you fill out your "CIS" statement exposing every asset you have to a stranger (Lawyer) you better call Rachel Cotrino if you don't, well you'll be broke!

I came to Rachel with a custody issue which was rather complicated. What impressed me initially about her were 3 things: Her ability to understand my case completely right from the initial consultation, ( like I said it was complicated). Her enthusiasm about my case, and her plan on how to handle it. Let's be honest, for a lot of lawyers it's just about the money. I never felt that at all during our times together. She really wants to win her cases.
With the information I gave her she put together a beautiful motion for the court. Complete, extremely informative and actually very moving. She put a lot of time and effort into it.
During the process of the case we were hit with a major setback through no fault of our own. I was a wreck. Rachel did not panic. She kept her cool, stayed on top of it, and put together a plan which turned out to be a very good plan. Not only did we rebound entirely from our setback but our motion was granted, We won. I was the happiest man in the world that day, and I think Rachel was the happiest lawyer. She really did an outstanding job and my son and I will never forget it. I recommend her 100%.

I was looking for a new attorney in my divorce case after my previous attorney dropped it. I contacted Rachel to setup initial consultation based on all the positive reviews and I am glad I did. She analyzed my circumstances quickly, was very knowledgeable and told me upfront what can be expected in terms of outcome and which strategy should be taken. Two weeks later my case was settled and I am very satisfied with the results. It was such a different experience - I wish she worked on my case from the very beginning. I am highly recommending Rachel's services. She is smart, trust worthy, confident, knowledgeable, organized and compassionate - I believe it's NOT easy to find an attorney with such qualities.

Great to work with.
When I set out to find a lawyer, I was worried about ending up with someone who was aggressively after my wallet.
With Rachel I found a lawyer that was rather out to fight for me while making me feel totally comfortable.
I've already recommended her to my friends and will definitely use her for any future needs
