The process of modification of child custody is long and hard. Rachel jumped in and took over my case which turned out to be multiple cases, for a very reasonable rate especially for her many years experience.
Being inexperienced with attorneys at the time I retained Rachel, I had no idea how much experience and knowledge Rachel gives to her clients. I wasn't an easy client and she answered my ridiculous emails and calls in such a timely manner. She looks out for the best interest of her clients.
She is not in family law for the money. She is passionate about her work and cares about what is right. Too many family attorneys are in this nasty business for the wrong reasons. They ruin lives and families all for money. Not Rachel! Rachel truly cares for the right reasons.
If you are going through a child custody modification you have to realize it takes time and it isn't anyone's fault. I was naive and thought she should have been able to get me in front of a judge the next day. I got frustrated and was very emotional. Foolishly I retained a different legal group. The worst decision of my life. If I wasn't so emotional and knew what the other attorneys were like, I would have known that I was a fool.
When I did tell her I didn't want her representation any more. She was kind and helpful. She is a great person and a great attorney. She is very experienced and it shows. You can not do this process without some one who specializes in what she does. She looks out for your best interest.
During a horrible time in my life, she was quick to respond, very professional about my ridiculous emails, and just truly amazing. I really want everyone to know that if you find her page here on AVVO.... Stop and don't go to anyone else. You have found the perfect attorney. Believe me, I know.
Thanks Rachel. You are one of the few family attorneys who do your work in an honest way. I appreciate everything you have done for me. I can't thank you enough. I also can't stress enough about how much knowledge she has in a very complicated law area.

Rachel was very kind, approachable and understanding of my situation. At our first meeting, she patiently listened to my story and understood the background and culture I was coming from. She walked me through the process and helped me get over my fear of going through the legal proceedings. She made me feel like I was not alone and gave me practical and effective advice during some very difficult and emotionally charged times.
Rachel is very knowledgeable, experienced and talented. I highly recommend her services.

I have worked with many different attornies through my past divorces and in my professional career. I also have an attorney as a sibling.
After reading all of the reviews on this website I hired Rachel. I have never seen a more attentive, compassionate, caring, smart, and tough attorney.
I hired Rachel to help me with getting a fair visitation schedule and cost sharing for travel expenses with my children when my ex-wife refused cooperate on eirher and we both moved further away.
Rachel would promptly answer all my questions. Several times I would email her late at night and have a response waiting from her the next morning when I woke up. She would take her time and explain everything to me when I had questions or did not understand. She would let me vent during times when I would get frustrated, but most important tell what I needed to hear versus what I wanted to hear.
When it came time for mediation we got everything we asked for and more. It became crystal clear that not only did the mediator respect her and her reputation but so did the opposing attorney. She clearly outsmarted, outclassed, was smarter and tougher than the opposing attorney.
Rachel was not only my attorney but my friend. I know how hard and uneasy it is to rely on a website for such an important decision but you will not regret hiring Rachel. It was the best decision I made.

I went in for a consultation with Rachel about what I perceived to be a complex problem. Within 20 minutes, she had diagnosed my situation and made recommendations as to my next course of action in a very lucid dialogue. All in all, my experience was fantastic.

Rachel was my divorce attorney. I have two children and feared a complicated split from my husband. We had recently moved to GA when we decided to separate and had to wait six months before we could file. She was there to handle issues that arose during the interim period and handled everything once we did file. She put my mind at ease by explaining the laws and how things would play out. During mediation she stopped me before I agreed to things that I hadn't thought through thoroughly. She was also there for me as a person and was warm and compassionate! I definitely felt like she genuinely cared for my (and my children's) well being! I'm hoping I never need her services again but if I do, she's the only one I would go to!

Rachel is one sharp cookie! She's smart, well-versed in GA law and fought relentlessly for my case. Although I didn't get the "most" desired results from mediation, I have no doubt that Rachel was completely "for me". Her fearless approach is unmatched and I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.

We are currently involved in a third party child custody suit and Rachel Elovitz is our attorney. She is very kind and helpful and she helps us stay on point when we stray of course. These type cases are truly stressful but Rachel always comes through as does a great athletic coach by lifting us up when the game is close. She is constantly helping us to focus on the desired outcome of the case and reminding us not to get provoked into trading blows with the opposition. She is a real firecracker full of enthusiasm and knowledge of these type cases and we are feeling more and more confident in the outcome as we go through the many phases necessary to reach our goal. We are also reminded of the feelings of the child and how we must also refrain from making harsh remarks about the other party and concentrate our efforts in making this little one know that we ALL love her more than anything. Rachel is very prompt, courteous and professional and she makes sure that we are up to par with the conversations between her and the other attorney. She exudes confidence in her plan of action and she always keeps us fully informed of what comes next and how to proceed. We are very, very impressed with Rachel's methods and how she handles herself in all situations pertaining to our case. We feel confident in the outcome of our suit because Rachel is always so positive in her strategies.

Rachel is a very balanced attorney. She is extremely caring and concerned about the well being of her clients and is an ear when you need it. She is also an excellent attorney and will fight for the best interest of her clients.
My case has been extremely difficult but Rachel has been wonderful. It has been comforting to know that she is there to make sure my interests are protected and that I am not being taken advantage of.
I have recommended Rachel and would definitely recommend her in the future.

I recently finished my divorce which Rachel helped me with. Legal documents are difficult to understand in the right frame of mind, much less at a time when there is so much mental and emotional turmoil. The relief it gave me knowing I had someone extremely knowledgeable I could trust to protect me and my interests during this time is difficult to express. Meeting Rachel and realizing just how good of an attorney and person she is felt like one of the few good things that had happened to me in months. Thank you so much Rachel!

I just finish my case and she helps me a lot. She is really nice and trustworthy person as a lawyer. She is my friend that I can share my stuff to her after she finish my case. I recommend her as a lawyer to choose and if you have a child she is the one that get your child to you no matter what. She will tell you what is right and what is wrong. I really like her because she do not say and write any lie to other lawyer and I do not like to do that either. She is the best. Me and my daughter both love her.
