Mrs. Elovitz was compassionate, responsive, helpful and understanding during a very difficult time in my life. She remains available for questions and I would highly recommend her. Thank you!

Rachel just concluded a very difficult 13 month custody battle for me. She helped me get the agreement I needed to get for my children's safety. She is very knowledgeable and has great connections that helped me through this. The entire time I felt as if I was in good hands and had the right attorney for me. She helped keep me focused on the important things and made sure we were always prepared. Her biggest strength is that she truly cares for the well-being of children and helped make sure that always came first.

I live out of state, miles away, and Rachel made me feel like she was right here through everything. She is very precise and is awesome at what she does! She fights like a tiger and made me feel like she had my back through everything! She is honest and will tell you step by step what to do, process, expectations, etc.... She is not the type of attorney that will "nickel and dime" you at every little thing. When I felt like things were against me, she was there to listen to me through my tears and tell me that it will all work out, which it has! She has such a great heart and she is not just an amazing attorney, she is also an amazing person! She is there for you every step of the way!

After 6 months with my first attorney I saw she was not working for me as she should have. When we found Rachel, she helped us transition from my previous attorney to her. She was kind and thoughtful. She filled in all of the blanks that my previous attorney left without consideration of how serious the case was for my family. Rachel was very present and she strategizes for my family and I, as we fought many false accusations from a narcissist co-parent. With Rachel thorough approach, I maintained primary custody of my children and we are still hoping the court will grant my attorney fees. She is highly recommended.

I could not say enough positive words about Rachel. Where else on AVVO do you see an attorney with 5/5 stars? Rachel is an attorney, yes, but she's so much more. She takes her cases personally, and most of all wants the children she represents to be put first. Rachel spent many sleepless nights on my case and would not sleep until she was satisfied and prepared. She is more of a fairy god mother than attorney and I would never consider having another attorney represent myself or anyone in my family. My family and I love her and have the utmost respect and admiration for not only her work, but the selfless person she is.

No assemblage of words can do justice to Rachel's skills as a lawyer and her virtues as a person. My lawyer during a protracted, complicated, and unexpected custody case, Rachel transformed a nightmare into a workable resolution. She was brilliant, bold, strategic, and creative in action. She has a rare ability to focus on small details and the "big picture" at once. She is such a phenomenal communicator -- whether she is listening, writing, or speaking -- that she accomplishes more in 20 minutes than others do in an hour. She IS busy (who wants to retain a lawyer with too few cases?), but her laser foci & clear communications often made me feel that I was her only client. She never dropped the ball. She was always ON. Her strong moral compass and her work as a GAL helped keep my daughter's needs in the foreground of every decision. What makes Rachel one-of-a-kind is that she is also kind, empathetic, warm, and funny. No matter how dark or difficult the situation, Rachel brightened the mood with laughter, lightness, and seasoned--but-sound advice. Given how soul-numbing family law can feel if you're ensnared in a case, this is no small feat! Like other reviewers, I came to view Rachel as a friend. If you are looking for a fantastic family lawyer who is well-respected by her peers, roundly admired by her clients, and who practices law for all the right reasons, you're in luck. Rachel is the one!

I'm a 30 yr old black man who has been trying to get custody of my 10 yr old son forth part 8 yrs. Then I found Rachel. Rachel was just the person I needed at a very hard time in my life. I've hired other attorneys in the past and none of them were even close to Rachel and the help she gave me. Like i mentioned I had been battling 8 yrs for custody of my son and now I have full custody. Rachel was very knowledgeable about the system and was always there when I had a question. I never thought I would get custody of my son and Rachel showed me that there are people in this world that care about complete strangers. So all I can say is Rachel is the Bomb.com with some awesome sauce on the side. Thank you Rachel for everything you've done for my family and I.
P.S. Kendrell is thriving in baseball.

At one of the most difficult times in my life I was fortunate enough to come across stellar reviews about Rachel. With some hesitation I made an inquiry to her and was blown awake by her candid yet timely response. She was very direct and to the point... But I wasn't quite sure I was ready to face the reality of divorce. Months later, with a newborn baby, I contacted Rachel for representation and I'm so glad I did. Though I bought a unique situation to her and practice, they worked collaboratively and were able to assist me in achieving a swift agreement, dissolving my bigamous marriage. It was by far the most outlandish situation I had ever been involved in and Rachel made the process easy and as painless as possible. She genuinely cared and didn't make me feel as though I was a nuisance which I'm sure I had become... We were able to get to mediation and dissolve my marriage in about 45 days. Rachel listened to what I was asking for though she may have had apprehensive, we were able to walk out of mediation with great relief. I will likely need to use Rachel again as issues with my previously dissolved marriage may linger but I'm fortunate enough to have found an amazing attorney.

I reached out to Rachel for advice involving a potential future case and am very pleased with her response time and level of detail. While I'm not needing to fully retain her services quite yet (fingers crossed), if the situation progresses, I certainly will be. Her years of knowledge and experience are evident and her respectful nature with such sensitive subjects is appreciated. She's a rare find int he legal world and I'm thankful to have found her when I did.
