I would like to take this opportunity to share my experience with Rachel Cotrino, Esq.
I hired Rachel to represent me in a very complicated custody issue. From the very beginning, Rachel gave me a sense of comfort and hope. Before speaking to Rachel, I felt as though my back was against a wall, and there was no end in sight to the turmoil I was experiencing. The stress was to a point where I could not sleep, have a healthy appetite or comfortably engage in social activities. My life was completely on hold.
Rachel's ability to prepare my case was extremely thorough, and her communication skills are on point. Her team of professionals are very friendly and a pleasure to work with.
Rachel's performance in court was even more impressive. She exhibited a dominating presence, and has magical talent to present the facts, argue, and stay on point.
Thanks to Rachel, the judge ruled favorably in my matter. Hiring Rachel for her legal services was much more than just hiring an attorney, it was more like having a friend in that profession. Thank you Rachel.

I found Rachel online and set up a phone consultation after reading the positive reviews. Prior to our conversation I had spoken with two other lawyers, but there was something very different about Rachel. I immediately felt as though she wanted to get my divorce settled as quickly as possible and wasn't going to play games. She is extremely professional, highly responsive, and aggressive. We were dealing with an opposing attorney who liked to drag his feet, and Rachel did everything on her part to make the process to as quickly as she could despite what we were dealing with. I highly recommend Rachel.

I retained Rachel for a child custody and child support lawsuit. Rachel was very proactive and a strong dedicated advocate for me during the entire process. Additionally, she always kept me informed and was very responsive in getting back to me even after business hours. She always provided me with sound advice and has a wealth of knowledge in so many aspects and areas. I strongly recommend retaining Rachel! You will not be disappointed at all

It is my pleasure to endorse Rachel. She had been my adversary on at least two occasions. Based on that experience I know that she is extremely competent, highly ethical and a zealous advocate for her clients.
