    Rachel is a dedicated attorney and a true advocate for her clients. She is extremely thorough and detailed. I was so fortunate to have her on my team of mediators at the Fulton Juvenile Court. Not only is she an amazing attorney, but she is an insightful and competent mediator. She truly cares about her clients and their families. If you are looking for an attorney that cares not just about your case, but is dedicated to your needs, I would recommend Rachel without hesitation.

  • David Alexander Yomtov

    Rachel Elovitz has a passion for advocacy and a good head on her shoulders. I know this from working an interstate custody case with her, we had the same client. She offered consistently excellent advice and I would refer anyone with a Georgia family law case to Rachel in a heartbeat.
