About me

Rachel sees the law as a tool to help individuals through the crossroads of their lives. Her goal is always to produce excellent results, whether assisting clients through the difficult stages of the criminal justice system or advocating for clients who are facing difficult family challenges. Rachel understands how intimidating and intrusive the court system can be, and therefore she makes it her goal to be a strong advocate in the courtroom and a caring interpreter of the process to her clients.
