I'm a partner in a health-care consulting firm. Most of our clients are in California, and we refer them all to Rachel for their labor-law needs. She helps them with their Office Policy Manuals and all other labor law concerns. All of these doctors give us great feedback on her skills, speed of service and friendliness. She makes us look good!
Not only did Rachel provide excellent advice regarding my situation, she also gave me the emotional support that I needed by returning all my calls promptly. Rachel was thorough, detailed, and extremely helpful. She explained all my options to me and helped me understand my rights. I would definitely recommend Rachel to anyone who needs help regarding employment law-related matters.
I was deposed in a work-related lawsuit and was one of the key people involved in the hearing. I had never been involved in the process and had heard it could be grueling. Rachel thoroughly prepared me in all aspects of the process from telling me what to expect, dealing with the emotional issues of the deposition, coaching me in responding to questions and importantly, how to deal with the very unpleasant demeanor and tactics of the opposing counsel in the deposition and at the hearing. It wasn't a fun experience, but without Rachel's thorough preparation and consistent support it would have been a nightmare.
I was unknowingly exposed to Toxic Chemicals over a period of 12 years. My health was deteriorating. The pollutant was a huge Corporation ( Verizon ). We couldn't get a New York Firm to help us. Price - Anderson Legislation & Federal Gov't Contractor Immunity Laws frightened off many New York firms. From 3000 miles away while working for the firm Gonzalez & Robinson -- Rachel Nelson and Jamie Adams stepped in to help. They leveled the playing field for us immediately. Facing 2 large corporate law firms - Rachel Nelson & Jamie Adams exhibited - Toughness , High Intelligence in a very complex case and they simply could not be intimidated. Rachel & Jamie kept me completely informed and answered all my questions. As the Federal trial approached they were in constant contact with me and left no stone unturned. Their professionalism and hard work was unparalleled. Not to mention the compassion and respect they gave me.Rachel & Jamie truly cared and it showed in how hard they fought for me. We won the trial and I cannot express in words the appreciation I have for Rachel Nelson & Jamie Adams. I was blessed to have them on my side. They are a great team and as I know for a fact - Great Lawyers. They were up against the odd's and we won because of their work. I through experience whole heartily recommend the firm of Rachel Nelson & Jamie Adams. I know their partnership will be a great success.
