Throughout 2013 and 2014, Rachael Hammer has done an excellent job with my divorce, support and custody case despite extremely contentious and difficult circumstances. The custody case started with the mother trying to limit visitation to twice per month which led to a hearing where Ms. Hammer successfully argued for joint custody.
Ms. Hammer guided us through months of negotiations and litigation to a highly successful outcome. She has stayed with us in the aftermath, taking late night and weekend phone calls, through pick-up explosions and police involvement.
I can not say the case has been pleasant, but Ms. Hammer and her legal assistant Katrina Smallwood, have remained a calm and steady presence no matter the circumstance. Ms. Hammer is knowledgeable about Family Law in both DC and Virginia, reliable, and professional. She works well with Clients and opposing counsel.
It has been an outstanding representation. I have highly recommend Rachael Hammer to friends and acquaintances who have required legal assistance.

Rachael Hammer is an awesome attorney! She was retained for a extremely complicated tenant-landlord matter. In two days to prepare for trial she was able to win my case. Outstanding results thanks to Rachael Hammer and Katrina Smallwood her devoted paralegal.

This past spring, my husband and I sought the counsel of Rachel Hammer for a very concerning issue with our next door neighbors. Ms. Hammer, understanding the sensitivity and complex issues dealing with a neighbor, wrote two letters on our behalf. Her approach was thoughtful, measured and practical while supportive of both parties knowing we would likely be neighbors for a long time. We would not hesitate to seek her legal advice and services for future actions. Her vast experience in these types of disputes, expert legal advice and sound judgment make her an outstanding attorney we would highly recommend. We also appreciated the professionalism of her paralegal who provided us with excellent assistance and support during this process.
