| Hired Attorney
Responsive, thorough, creative, strategic
Reflecting back now that it is 10 years since my divorce, Rachel really did an incredible job navigating all the complex issues related to kids, division of property, future financial obligations, etc. she helped accelerate the process and our financial agreements have stood the test of time. in a tough situation you want a steady mind and competent execution. I had a fair amount at stake and Rachel drove to an appropriate outcome that enabled me to quickly move on to more enjoyable aspects of life. Going through divorce sucks, but Rachel got me through successfully to the other side.
