  • Ronald Clayton Gardner

    I endorse this lawyer. Rachel is a dogged advocate on behalf of her client. I have watched her conduct depositions of adverse witnesses. She has a particularly unique gift for asking the right questions in a polite yet pointed manner that support her client's position in the case. She is a very talented litigator.
