A True Advocate
Can't say enough great things Rachel. Beginning with our initial consultation and through the whole process, I always felt like she truly listened to what I had to say and advocated for what *I* felt was right for me and my family. She was professional, practical, and strategic. I'm very appreciate for her support and guidance. Highly recommend.

Superb employment lawyer
I contacted Rachel Haskell when I was wrongfully terminated from my job in New York City. She was extremely professional, took the time to look over the documents I sent her, and wrote an insightful response to each of my questions. Her advice was grounded and she was transparent about all of the realistic options I had in front of me. Rather than pushing me towards legal action, she actually counseled me on the ways to negotiate with my former company in good faith. In the end, Rachel guided me through a very difficult time and I was able to negotiate a better severance payout from my company. Rachel Haskell is an excellent counselor in matters relating to employment law and I highly recommend her services!

She Fought For Me When No One Else Would
I went to Rachel after being wrongfully terminates from my job. While many wouldn’t listen, Rachel not only LISTENED but she became fully engaged and dedicated to helping me. Communication was consistent and she fought her hardest on my behalf. I believe I met Rachel for a reason and I’d highly recommend her to anyone who wants results and to feel secure that they have the best representation. THANK YOU RACHEL !!!!!

Highly recommend Rachel
I engaged Rachel in regards to an unlawful and discriminatory termination from a previous employer. In short, Rachel was fantastic from start to finish. Her breadth of knowledge on employment/labor law is vast, and she really served as an advocate for me in gaining the settlement that I wanted. She is thorough and meticulous, and did an excellent job of keeping me informed throughout the entire process. I can't say enough positive things about Rachel Haskell and the work she did for me during a challenging time in my life.

Professional, knowledgeable, and supportive
When Rachel took on my case, she truly became an advocate for my cause. She not only made sure that I felt heard and supported every step of the way, but made sure that I felt empowered and understood all elements and angles of my case. She ultimately was able to bring the case to a conclusion that has given me true peace of mind and created the space for me to be able to tell my side of the story. I could not recommend her enough.

THE BEST EMPLOYMENT LAWYER IN NYC
Rachel was amazing. She helped me seek compensation from an employer who was trying not to pay me. Incredibly communicative with me in regards to what was happening on the case. Everything was handled incredibly diligently and professionally. She used the retainer is a way that to me felt very respectful. Making it last longer than I anticipated given the amount of time and energy she put into working with me. Not to mention all the work to file a complaint with the federal court. Rachel is a star that I would recommend to anyone else who ever has a dispute with an employer that they would like to see resolved, quickly, neatly and relatively inexpensively!!! Words can't do her justice! Thank you Rachel. Thank you for everything.

Amazing work
I randomly found Rachel on the web to help with a termination case against a corporate giant for a member of my family. Within the first few interactions, I knew she was smart, swift and strategic. She never faltered in her quest to right the "wrong" that had been done! She was responsive and honest. The resultant settlement was great and it was due to Rachel's fine work!

I worked with Rachel Haskell on my labor case against a company that I worked for in the Wall Street area that were doing illegal things like cutting pay, not paying over time and changing us from hourly paid workers to commission only and never paying commissions for sales. Amongst others things I was treated unfairly because of my sexual orientation , I brought the case to the office of Chris Davis and Rachel Haskell, the case saw some true challenges but the result was amazing and I was able to settle on an amount that took care of the my damages. I wasn't the easiest of clients as I was always calling and emailing weekly to follow up, but without any hesitation they answered all my questions and showed me respect. They won me an amazing payout , I didn't think would be even possible, I owe them a lot. Thank you so much for all you have done. Your firm is amazing and can truly work miracles.

Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"Rachel is an enthusiastic, intelligent, savvy, and well-organized attorney. She took initiative very early on in her employment and made herself indispensable to our practice. In fact, by her second month of employment, she was staffed on a major class action where she played an important role in the final mediation, ultimately gaining the respect of a mediator with 30 years of experience. She has worked hard to establish strong relationships with current and prospective clients, earning the trust of our clients very quickly. I wholeheartedly endorse her skills."
