One neighbor recommended Dr. Rachel Rao to me when my wife was deported to Haiti. Dr. Rao used all her professionalism and her legal skills to help me get reunited with my wife in Miami. In addition, she charged me much less than two other lawyers I contacted before her.
Dr. Rao treated my case with such a dedication and commitment that I would rehire her or recommend her to the whole world. The good thing about her is that she brings a satisfactory outcome out of difficult cases like my own. Dr. Rao, I am grateful to you for using your legal career to help me and countless others.

I had an extremely complicated case which spanned years of errors, incomplete information, conflicts and seemingly unsolvable matters. I came to Mrs. Rao after having spoken with several attorneys, all who took my money and left me in as deep and dark a hole as I had ever been, without answers. From the very beginning I was impressed by the attention she paid to every detail on my case. She began work immediately and she seemed like a non-stop machine, searching for documents and seeking solutions. Her dedication, hard work, attention to detail and commitment to serving her clients is nothing short of remarkable. My case involved working many long hours through many months, and not once did she lose any momentum. I have recommended her to a couple of individuals with challenging cases who were also helped, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone in need of an superb immigration attorney. I am happy to say that my case has finally been settled with a very satisfactory conclusion.

I did not have a great experience with this lawyer. She was not very organized, she did not respect my time and she made disrespectful comments. Every time we agreed on an appointment or the time to follow up, she seemed to have forgotten it, she cancelled, or she simply just complained..oh, I am working on a case, I dont have time that day..!!! ??? of course you re working on a case - I thought ..
This became the most frequent frase she would use. Very often, just after I left her office, she called me right back to correct herself and change the document requirements that she had given me regarding the process. She knew that I had to get my documents from overseas. One day after my green card application packet was complete, she told me she forgot that I also need copies of my affidavitt holders ID and they need to sign the paper. She asked if I could get it from all of them by the next day. It felt like she had been doing this the first time. Often I had 3-4 messages on my voicemail with her inconsistent, confusing thoughts, or once even an appointment cancel message that was meant for another client. The main issue was that even if I made it clear for her that I am taking days off from work to meet with her, she cancelled, she didnt have time or she forgot about those days and changed her mind on me. At the end she said that I didnt care about my green card. This made our relationship so tense that she would answer my phone calls like: "What's up"? Even though I tried to stay professional with her.
I do not recommend this person to anybody. My case was very easy, everything was in place. I can only imagine how she would handle herself in a more complex case. I feel like I wasted the money , all he trips down to Hialeah and I could have done a much better job myself!
