Rachele represented me for my disability claim. The insurance company was giving me a really hard time. She was able to get them to start paying me within two weeks of hiring her.

Workers compensation Attorney | Feb 11
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Having reviewed Ms. Van Arsdale's summary of her client's medical history, it is clear that she is extremely thorough and that she knows how to present facts persuasively. In our discussions off the record she is not only personable, but always shows a thorough knowledge of the Workers Compensation Law and its interaction with her personal injury cases."

"Rachele is a feared adversary and strong advocate. I highly recommend her."
Personal injury Attorney | Feb 22
Relationship: Supervised lawyer
"I would describe Rachele Van Arsdale as a lawyer (and as a person) as bright, energetic and passionate. She cares very deeply about people and justice. I have known Rachele for five years. She began working with my law firm, Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., when she was in law school and then joined us as a full-time associate attorney upon her graduation. It was a pleasure to work with her and to help train her as an attorney. I would like to think that her skills as an attorney are due in some measure to her work with our firm. But I cannot claim full credit for her current excellence as an attorney; her intelligence and character were already established. Because she cares so deeply about doing the right thing, any clients that she represents can be confident that she will ably protect their interests."
Litigation Attorney | Feb 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Rachele and I met a few years ago at a bar association event. Since this event we have remained in close contact. Rachele is an excellent attorney, strong advocate for her client's, and extremely organized/motivated making her an excellent attorney. She always represents the best interests of her client's in a professional manner making sure all receive proper attention and legal assistance. It has been a pleasure getting to know Rachele over the past few years, and I look forward to our continued work together. I endorse Rachele without question!"

"Rachele Van Arsdale worked as a summer intern while she was completing her studies at Rutgers University School of Law. Her outstanding performance during that intensive internship led to an offer to join Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., New York, NY, as an associate upon graduation. As an associate attorney, and with her experience as an intern, Ms. Van Arsdale was given responsibility for handling important aspects of very significant litigation matters including research, motion practice, depositions and trial preparation. She was also given meaningful opportunities to appear in court, in which appearances her performance was exceptional, garnering praise from her adversaries as well as the judges before whom she appeared. It is my distinct pleasure to offer this entry on her behalf and to convey to all my highest regard for her as a colleague in the profession of the law."
