My husband and I hired Rachel for a complicated case, involving my husband's adjustment of status. Rachel made the process very clear from the first phone call. Rachel was always there (via text, email, phone call or in person meeting) whenever we reached out, ready with full explanation of any questions or concerns we had. She was the most knowledgeable attorney we encountered in our long process with immigration and we reached out to over four lawyers. Rachel knows the law and process, and was very clear that there was a pathway for my husband's case despite what others had told us. She had originally explained that our case could take time, she was correct and we received our approval recently. These cases often take patience and perseverance, she worked tirelessly for us and was professional, positive and encouraging throughout the process.

When I was arrested Rachel called me at the police station (per my father's request) and she was in court the very next morning with motions and documents for my case. For the past year and a half she has worked diligently on my case. She is knowledgeable, honest, and persistent. She has this way about her that demands respect, and she is assertive without coming off as being rude (which in my experience, is not an easy thing to do!). She didnt sugarcoat things and gave me real expectations about the possible outcomes of my case. She always returned my phone calls and emails. I think what really sets her apart is the way she is able to communicate with people; she worked her butt off to make the DA see me as a person, and not just another case. I'd have to imagine this is a very hard thing to do, but Rachel makes it look easy. Ultimately through her hard work and dedication she was able to negotiate a just and fair outcome to the very serious charges I was facing. I wouldn't have wanted anyone else by my side these past 18 months, thank you Rachel!

I had previously applied for citizenship and got denied. After consulting with attorney Self, she pointed out exactly what my previous attorney had overlooked, and explained to me how that oversight led to my application being denied with USCIS. Having several arrests(6) on my record, my application demanded extreme attention to detail and a lawyer who fully understood the criminal aspects of my past for immigration purposes. Rachel was honest and upfront about what chances I had and told me step by step what she expected to happen. She felt confident that I had a shot...even with my criminal past. Ironically, everything she expected to happen, did! I went to my interview in Nov 16 and 2 months later got the end result that I wanted. Citizenship granted. I can whole heartedly say that she does not misrepresent expectations, is an honest attorney and very knowleadgable in her field. Excellent choice!!

From the first day we met I was so impressed with Rachel's confidence I knew everything would work out. I was amazed how well she planned our case and how accessible she was. She would respond to my e-mails or phone calls even late at night or on weekends and put my mind at ease. I would recomend rachel to anyone in need of the best attorney around.

When all looked impossible she went above and beyond. Always keeping us informed and helping us through our toughest days! I can not thank her enough!

It's very difficult to prove that someone is innocent when the case involve kids because you have to have great abilities not only to show the reason why your client is not guilty but also be quick to answer and fight your opponents ideas that most of the time try to bring to the court room more emotion than the real thing. Attorney Rachel did a excellent job and justice was really done.

By far the best experience you could have with a lawyer. Always returned my calls and reminded me when court date were. I was looking at 2-3 yrs for drug trafficking. I was so tempted to take the deal the DA offered but Rachel said we have good arguments so I didn't take the deal and won my case. I have my life back and I have Rachel Self to thank. She will go out of her way to accommodate you and will even call you back on a weekend which is unheard of these days.

Before engaging Rachel Self as my immigration lawyer, I met with 3 other lawyers who were pessimistic about my case which left me with a very negative feeling walking out of their offices. I met with Rachel after being referred by a friend and she carefully reviewed the facts of my case and was able to identify a path that could lead to a resolution of my circumstance. She is very clear and realistic but at the same time positive and has the knowledge and people skills that make things happen for her clients. I can attest to that, having already been successful in passing the first large hurdle in may case. Lucky me that I decided to make one last attempt with a lawyer. If someone will be able to resolve my complicated case, I'm confident it is Rachel. There is only ONE Rachel Self.

Rachel Self is the absolute best immigration lawyer in the Boston area without a doubt. I came to her with the most impossible predicament and she did everything possible to gain justice for me and eventually won my immigration case. She literally gave me my life in the US back. She will do whatever it takes to gain justice for you by looking for every possible legal avenue to take to make your case work. It is an understatement to say that she truly cares for her clients. She will take personal time out of her day if it means she can improve on your case. Extremely skilled, diligent, efficient and compassionate, look no further if you are deciding on a lawyer.

My case went so smooth thanks to Rachel. She is an amazing lawyer and a person. The first day i met her she gained my trust, explaining exactly what the process will be like, what the time frame will be etc. She will return all your phone calls or e-mails no matter what day or time it is even if she is on vacation. I strongly recommend her as your first choice for an immigration lawyer. But do not take my word for granted do your own research and even google will tell you the same :)
Thanks a lot Rachel !!!
Really appreciate everything that you did for me !!!
