About Me

Rachel M. Engebretson obtained her Juris Doctorate cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law. She is admitted to practice law in Minnesota, US District Court for MN, and 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. Rachel’s immigration-related practice areas include business, family, naturalization, immigration removal proceedings, consular processing, and waivers.

Rachel began her legal experience as a part-time legal intern in 1996. She joined the law firm as a full-time employee in 1998 after earning a Bachelor’s Degree, with honors, from Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As a legal assistant, Rachel gained more than a decade of valuable experience in assisting in all areas of the immigration law practice from administrative filings to court-room litigation. After learning the nuances of immigration policies and procedures her skills have expanded to include legal research and briefing. In addition, she worked with the William Mitchell Immigration Law Clinic for two semesters.
