About Me


Rachel K. Baumel is an Attorney, Mediator and CFI. After graduating from the University of Minnesota School of Law, Ms. Baumel practiced Employment Law from 2000 – 2003 at the Legal Aid Society of Minneapolis.  During her time at Legal Aid, Ms. Baumel represented and educated low-income individuals on their rights and responsibilities in the workplace. Ms. Baumel was the Program Director for Denver CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates for Abused and Neglected Children) from 2003 – 2004. 


Ms. Baumel returned to practicing law in 2011, with a focus on Family Law. Ms. Baumel is currently practicing Family Law and Employment Law. 

Ms. Baumel uses a facilitative and collaborative mediation approach. Mediation gives parties an option to resolve their dispute without using an adversarial approach. Ms. Baumel is also trained as a CFI (Child and Family Investigator) and is able to serve in an investigative role on Domestic Relations cases to determine what is in the best interest of the children. 


Ms. Baumel is currently a member of the Colorado Bar Association (Family Law Section) and the Denver Bar Association.
