Extremely helpful through a difficult divorce
Attorney Aylor was absolutely wonderful throughout my recent divorce process. She was perfect in standing up against the other lawyer who tried to bully me into accepting unfavorable terms for settlement. Attorney Aylor helped me stay focused on what was worth fighting for and what (financially speaking) I should let go as it would cost more to fight than I might receive in the end. Most importantly, I always felt like she cared about me as a person and not just a client.

Excellent, Honest, Compassionate
Rachel Aylor is amazing! Initially, I consulted with her after being served with divorce papers and knew she would be an excellent attorney to hire. However, since my divorce was not supposed to be very complicated, I decided to self-represent which was a decision I came to regret. When things did get complicated, I consulted Rachel again and hired her as reviewing counsel. Not many attorneys would have given me the time or attention that Rachel did on this basis. My calls and emails were always returned promptly. Because Rachel is very thorough and detail oriented, she looks at things from all angles. Nothing gets overlooked. In addition to being an excellent attorney, Rachel is a compassionate person who was very sensitive to my emotions during this process. I highly recommend Attorney Rachel Aylor.

Rachel will be your advocate 100% of the time!
I highly recommend Rachel if you are looking for a divorce attorney. Rachel was very responsive and extremely knowledgeable about family law. Sometimes if some type of crisis arose after hours or even on the weekend I knew I could reach her. She dedicated so much time and effort to my case!! She also would tell me when something was cost effective to pursue or not really worth attorney fees. I felt I could trust Rachel throughout the process. Rachel is a 5 star attorney for sure!!!!

Most top notch attorney you could ever hire!
I highly recommend Rachel Aylor to represent you. She truly works so hard for you and is extremely detail oriented. I’ve worked with other attorneys in the past for this very stressful family law matter and no one has ever eased my mind and made me feel this supported. She is so responsive and truly cares about her clients. If you want to win your case, don’t hesitate in hiring Rachel you’ll be so glad you did!

Excellent Attorney!!
Attorney Aylor is fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and provided extremely helpful information that not only helped me in my case but also transferred to my other areas of my life. She provides clear communication and was very honest and forthright, which is exactly what you want from your attorney. I would give her 10 stars if I could. The work that she provided was invaluable. I definitely recommend this attorney.

The Best of the Best
I have used Attorney Aylor twice, one for my divorce 10 years ago and recently to enforce condictions of my DSA to which my ex was not complying. As always, Rachel is professional, caring, compassionate, and a wonderful negotiator and litigator. She has always fought hard for me and been fair and realistic in counseling what I can expect. I always appreciate her encouragement and honesty. If you have a family law issue, there is no one better than Rachel Aylor.

Rachel is awesome!
I hired Rachel for a simple divorce by reference through a friend who had hired her for a child custody matter. She is very matter-of-fact and is very prompt. She follows up quickly and tries to keep things moving along. She is a cost benefit attorney and will advise what is worth fighting for and what will cost too much money. You feel supported throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Rachel for getting you through a divorce!

Wonderful!!
Rachel was wonderful from start to finish. I wish I hired her the first time around. She assisted me through a child custody matter with a difficult ex. She was empathetic and didn’t take any garbage from the other side. She is professional and handles herself well when working up against lawyers that are her colleagues. Would definitely use her again if needed.

Best Divorce Lawyer!
Divorce is such an amazingly hard process to go through whether it’s amicable or contentious. Rachel’s knowledge of the process and the law combined with her ability to handle the case with respect and care went above and beyond what I expected. I even forgot that she may have other clients because she was always responsive and took time to make sure I knew what to expect during each stage of the process. Rachel was always honest with her opinion, and given her years of experience, was always right on. There is so much that you don’t think of as you just want it done, but Rachel made sure that I was well represented and had all the information to make a sensible decision. Thank you Rachel! You made a very difficult stage in my life so much easier. I highly recommend Rachel...I hope I never need her again, but if I do, she will be my Lawyer!

Excellent Attorney- There For Her Clients
Rachel is extremely focused on her clients. I found her to be very thoughtful about the situations I faced, and provided sound and fair guidance. She based her approach on realistic expectations, and was mindful not to waste time just to run up billings. She is diligent in her follow-up and very organized. All in all, I felt like she was there on my side. She has done a great job and I appreciate her work.

Fully engaged and highly competent representation
I would not want to have been represented by any other lawyer in my "modified" collaborative divorce. From the first consultation till the final no-contest, pre-court meeting, I always felt my best interests where considered in every aspect of my case. She provided her own template for entering the requisite Financial Affidavit information to the court. Once complete, that data was then entered in a flexible form that allowed additional content. Clearly superior to typing into a CT court approved PDF form. Very open and engaged with my case, even when the other side was less active. Kept in touch not only with me, but also with the opposing lawyer when long pauses in our case happened with no feedback from the other side. Reaching out to her was easy via text msg, email or phone. Very clear communications at all times. The final settlement agreement Rachel drafted was thorough and complete. I will just add that compared to the opposing lawyer in my case, Rachel was hands down someone I would highly recommend.

Excellent Attorney and a Wonderful Individual!
After my initial consult, which Rachel covered every scenario in depth, I decided to retain her services to help with my son's college tuition that was part of a 15 year old divorce agreement. I had a clause that required my ex to assist with college expenses until the age of 23. I did not know if it was worth it to try for this money, but Rachel was able to draw up an agreement, get my ex to sign and have it filed in court in an expeditious fashion that helped me not spend a fortune in fees. I am so grateful to her and will now get the additional funds towards my son's college tuition. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Client
Attorney Rachel Aylor was excellent throughout my whole divorce process. She is both professional and compassionate. She worked diligently to ensure that I was fully informed while being supportive. Her response time to calls and emails were always quick (within minutes or a few hours at the most, even responded on a Saturday!) I highly recommend Rachel for others who are seeking counsel.

Simply the Best
I used Rachel for a particularly difficult divorce 6 years ago. She not only fought for me every step of the way, she was always accessible when I needed to talk to her, and showed tremendous compassion and empathy, always reminding me to "just keep swimming," even after the final hearing. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

A thoughtful and knowledgeable Attorney
Rachel represented me for a contempt motion and a modification to a custody order. This was an emotional process for myself and my children and Rachel was kind and compassionate through the whole process. She explained my options and possible outcomes as well as what I could expect during the proceedings. Rachel was very knowledgeable of the family court process and was a strong advocate for me. I really felt like she fought me for and my best interests. If needed, I would hire her again without hesitation.

Highly recommended attorney for divorce/child custody
Ms. Aylor is an experienced, highly knowledgeable, dedicated lawyer, and I would recommend her highly to anyone going through a divorce in the New Haven area. She was an absolute advocate for what I needed out of the divorce, and helped me understand what to expect during difficult proceedings. She is at once incredibly efficient and thorough, no-nonsense and compassionate. Her expertise as a family lawyer shone especially in the way she helped me come to a fair custody agreement and parenting plan that best benefitted my child.
