    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 !!!

    Rachel Self is what I would consider the best lawyer an immigrant can find. I've had terrible experiences when it comes to lawyers. Rachel is different, Rachel is amazing. She is always on top of things, she would answer my calls and e-mails actively, unlike many lawyers I met. she would not hesitate to make expert recommendation. She pays a great deal of attention to the details of my case. She assured me every step of the way and obviously we won the case. When the case was won and over, I only had one thought on my mind: the first day we met, I sat down with her, nervous..with doubts and scared. I asked her what are my chances here? In which she responded, and mind you, this is the probably the best response I've heard from a lawyer - I will not take your case if I think you'll lose. THAT just blew my mind. I immediately decided that this is the one, this is the lawyer I will place all my bets on and put my trusts in. Why are you still reading this review? Talk to her already!

    All of the accolades you've read below are spot on. I am a lawyer myself but when one of my adult children needed competent, caring and effective representation with regard to a very serious state court matter I immediately called Rachel and thankfully she agreed to take the case. Through her brilliant and effective advocacy the matter was ultimately dismissed and my family could not be more pleased with her efforts on our behalf. She is a very special attorney and a true credit to our profession.

    I first met Rachel in 2007. I had been charged with a minor thing that caused immigration to find out about me. I had been taken into custody by Immigration and was being held in jail. I was so afraid. From the moment I met her I had faith that even though my case was very, very hard, I was going to be OK. I loved her honesty and her kindness. She never lied to me and she was always very up front with how the process was going to work. She got me out on bond and then she got my criminal case dismissed. After that we began the immigration fight. I was seeking asylum because I had been persecuted in my home country and was afraid to go back.

    She prepared an amazing case for me. She got me work authorization while my case was pending and then when we finally went in front of the judge she fought so hard for me. You could tell that the judges and the government lawyers really respected her and her work and I think that really helped me. She had all the evidence to support my case and she was always prepared for everything. She is a very good combination of smart and kind and I always knew she cared very much for me. Immigration cases can be confusing and a case like mine takes a very long time. She always had time to explain things to me and she was always easy to reach. This year, on the day before Thanksgiving, I was granted my asylum. I am now safe and it is all thanks to her. In doing this review I realize that I really don’t have the words to adequately express how grateful I am to her. I do believe with all my heart that if it hadn’t been for Rachel, I would not be here. She saved me. I will always be forever grateful to Rachel and her incredible team for their hard work and dedication to me. She is the absolute BEST.

    Finding Rachel was one of the best things to ever happen to me. She made my immigration case run smoothly, was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and attentive to all of my needs and questions. I achieved everything I wanted to with Rachel's assistance and I couldn't recommend her any higher.

    Rachel Self did a first rate job handling my immigration case. She made sure that I understood the process, explained step by step what i needed to do, and quickly replied to all of my inquiries. When i came to see Rachel I was expecting to have to pay for post conviction relief services which other lawyers had told me I would need, but Rachel reviewed my case and saved me a lot of money on unnecessary legal work which speaks to her honesty and dedication to her clients. I would strongly recommend Rachel Self to anyone.
