I’d recommend Rachel to any of my friends. After working with a couple attorneys in the past, I’ve learned you don’t always get what you pay for, and that initiative, preparation, and knowledge of “the system” are key qualities to seek in an attorney. Rachel represented me in a challenging custody case and I could not be more pleased with how she handled everything. She shot straight with me, guided me through a very daunting process and protected me from making emotionally driven decisions. While she never made any promises on judicial outcomes, she gave me confidence by being very clear about the strengths/weaknesses of my case and being VERY prepared. As a bonus, while always professional, she also has a good sense of humor (which really helped during the high stress moments!) A great attorney and worthwhile investment.

I recently went through a very sudden and unexpected divorce and was blindsided with the reality of what that meant for me. Rachel was my saving grace and my guide. Her level headed and even handed approach to each staggering situation helped me to calmly and rationally navigate the waters, trusting her knowledge and experience to lead the way.
Thank you Rachel.

I hired Rachel in May for a very complicated custody case. There were three different states involved and my son's father had no intention of backing down. Rachel always remained calm, collected, and informative. She responds quickly to emails and is very efficient. I am pleased to say that after 18 weeks and several court dates, Rachel was able to get my son's father and his attorney to sign an agreed parentage plan. She made me feel like she always had my back and she would only do what was in the best interest of me and my child. If you want someone who is going to work hard, care about your case, and put in the required efforts to WIN, then Rachel is who you should hire!

I had a terrible experience with another Nashville attorney while trying to iron out a solid parenting plan. I had almost given up on everything until I contacted Rachel. She was honest, diligent and always prepared. I have had to use Rachel several times over the past two years to deal with a difficult family situation and I am very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Rachel to anyone dealing with divorce or child custody issues and I will continue to use her in the future if necessary.

Rachel Sharp (Upshaw) was my lawyer for my divorce and was Absolutely Wonderful! She followed through on everything she told me she would, worked diligently to get me everything possible for my best interests and got me the most compensation from my ex-husband possible. She referred me to a wonderful mediator who worked along side Rachel to get the divorce finalized as painlessly as possible, and got me what I deserved in the settlement. She was there for me in person, over the phone or email whenever I needed her, and she was there for me in spirit as well (supported and encouraged me through a Very tough time in my life). She is a Wonderful lawyer and is backed by a Wonderful law firm as well. I Highly recommend Rachel for a lawyer for anyone going through a divorce...she will make it easier on you and as painless as possible, which isn't an easy task during those types of difficult circumstances. Thank You, Rachel and Thank You, Karla C. Miller and Assocs. You Rock! ~)~

Rachel is a wonderful attorney. Never thought I would be getting divorced but she is a no nonsense lawyer who understands her clients and listens. She got me with the right mediator to get my divorce settled as quickly as she could. She knows how to cut through all the bs and work through issues that need to be dealt with great professionalism. I highly recommend Rachel!

Divorce is the #2 most stressful things in life, a close 2nd to the death of a loved one. This was no different for my situation. Never thought I'd be seeking a divorce, but lo and behold, here I was. With many questions and deep stress over what to do I found (or was led to) Miss Rachel, who was the ideal attorney for me, looking back at the results. Rachel is very effective, efficient, professional, intelligent, knowledgeable, and keen and no non-sense about her profession; but she is also kind, thoughtful, and patient. I spilled over concerns about father's rights, voiced over my sweet 2-year old daughter, who is unfortunately involved in the middle of her mom and dad's irreconcilable differences. Rachel worked with me, going the extra miles, to prepare and create a court-ordered plan that I could not be more pleased with [big sigh of relief]. Rachel is not mean or nasty, but a focused and persistently effective attorney that will seek justice for you in your situation. I have the utmost respect for her, and highly recommend her work and services to you.

Rachel is a no nonsense attorney that listens and understands your issues. Let me rephrase, listens. Hard to find. She helped me tremendously and I have and will recommend her to anyone.

I recently went through a divorce, which has been my most difficult experience thus far in life. I was dealing with so much stress and confusion, and I had so many questions. Rachel Sharp was an amazing lawyer. She was kind, personable, and understanding. She put my mind at ease immediately and walked me through every step of the process. She was attentive to my situation. Any time I called or emailed with a question it was answered quickly. She explained things to me in terms I could understand. In a time of uncertainty and instability in my life, Rachel was reliable, helpful, and supportive. She got me everything that I wanted in the divorce and I am beyond satisfied. She far exceeded my expectations for a lawyer. I highly recommend her.

I have had the pleasure of working with Rachel on two different occasions. My experience was consistent each time. Rachel was incredibly knowledgeable about the law, the process and the people. She was responsive to my inquiries and spent the time to ensure I was comfortable with the process throughout the proceedings and at the conclusion. I have recommended Rachel twice, with positive feedback, and will continue to do so.
