About Rachael

Learn Rachael’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Social Security & Disability
    SSDI & SSI - from application through federal court, I am experienced at all levels of the process!

    10 years

  2. Bankruptcy and debt
    Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and debt settlement.

I have a passion for helping people!  Getting your Social Security disability benefits can be a confusing and long process.  I can help.  I have been diligently guiding people through the Social Security disability system since 2012.  I have represented claimants at all levels of the process - from the initial application through representation in federal court. 

I also have extensive experiencing helping people obtain short-term and long-term disability benefits under ERISA-governed private policies.  I have worked to help change the law so that claimants can stand up to the insurance companies that so often deny you your hard-earned benefits.

While working with the disabled, I learned that many of my clients are facing substantial hardships as a result of being unable to work and mounting medical debt.  For several years I have helped my clients achieve debt relief and financial freedom through the bankruptcy process.  If bankruptcy is not your best option, I will tell you, and seek to provide you with the alternative solutions best suited to achieving your personal financial goals. 

I understand that life can throw you curveballs.  Whether it is an unexpected injury or diagnosis that has left you unable to work full-time, or seemingly insurmountable debt, I want to help.  I strive to create a judgment-free atmosphere.  Matching experience with unparalleled compassion, I zealously advocate for my clients, often when they are facing the biggest hurdles they will ever experience.

Compassionate, professional, and genuine
I owe Rachael an apology. I wrote this review long ago and never realized a computer glitch lost it. Rachael was my disability lawyer from 2015 to 2018. It took that long to settle my case and she was with me all the way. Her unfailing kindness, determination to win for me, and competence in the face of several unfair obstacles made a permanent impression. I have no end of admiration and gratitude for her and I highly recommend her.

Heaven Sent
Rachel took a look at our disability case when other lawyers wouldn't give us the time of day. She thought we had a strong case and offered her services. We had been denied twice by S.S.I. and this was our last chance to obtain benefits. Everyone said we didn't have a chance but we hired Rachael and won! She is very caring & personable and answered every question we had very quickly. After we won the case she even checked in on us to see how we were doing and said not to hesitate if we had anymore questions. I would hire her again and highly recommended her to anyone trying to get disability. Thank-you Rachael.

My name is Matthew and I wanted to write a review for my lawyer Rachael Pas. I've gotta say Rachael is an amazing attorney and she took on my disability case when no other lawyer would even talk to me. She believed in me from day one and we won our case! She is honest, caring and doesn't try to rip you off like most of the other places. She has helped changed my life drastically because now I have a steady income and great health insurance. I've gotta say it came at the right time because I found out back in October I have cancer and I just had my surgery in December 2020 and it would have cost me over $201,000 if I hadn't had insurance. Plus not to mention all of my doctor visits for my gout as well! So she really came through for me just in time! Thank you, Rachael :)

Response from Rachael Pas April 7, 2021
Mr. Melton, thank you for your feedback! I am glad we were able to obtain a positive outcome in your case! Although I hate to hear that you received a cancer diagnosis, I am thrilled you have been able to get the care you needed through the insurance you received as a result of being approved for disability benefits. Stay well!
