I was born and raised right here in El Paso, Texas and attended J.M. Hanks High School. Following high school I attended El Paso Community college where I earned my associate’s degree as a paralegal. I was also a member Phi Theta Kappa (National Honor Society) at EPCC. I went on to graduate with honors from New Mexico State University where I earned my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. After earning my bachelor’s degree I received my law degree in 2012 in Arizona. I became involved in several organizations during my time in Phoenix. I especially enjoyed the work that I did as a member of Law Paws, a legal organization that protects the rights of abused animals. OUTlaw, an organization for LGBQTIA. Additionally, I won two awards for contract law negotiations, The Transactional Hero Award and The Over and Beyond Award. I believe in empowering women in all that they do and I am currently an active member of the Texas Bar Woman in Law chapter.

 As an El Paso native I am looking forward to serving the community here. I love the culture, the food, and our great city. I can’t wait to start getting to know more of the people who make up our great city and helping you the best way I can. I am a mother, and a grandmother and have raised my own family right here in El Paso. 

We support our Military. I come from a military family. My son was in the Army and my husband is in the Army.

"Your case with be handled with the care, dedication, and respect you deserve! I look forward to working with you."

Divorce
Despite the pandemic, Ms. Atkins performed an excellent job and got my divorce final with everything I wanted and plus. Extremely hard working. She is straight up front with your case and very aggressive during court. I would hire her again if need too.

Dad gets sole custody!!!
Ms. Adkins is an amazing attorney. Always kept me informed about my case. The case took a while by no fault of hers but she kicked butt and won the case all in my favor. So here is to all the dads fighting for custody, she is well worth it! She is a fighter and doesn’t go down without a fight. Thank you so much Ms. Adkins and staff! You guys are beyond amazing.

Thank you. I strongly believe gender should play no role when it comes to custody.

Amazing lawyer
From the moment I first spoke to her she seemed passionate about helping us. She was always sure of herself which helped us keep our confidence in her even through the bumps in the road. She never stopped fighting to get us what we wanted for our daughter. She worked hard and when we seemed to be out of options she did everything she could to make more available. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer. Thanks to her the adoption is final and my daughter gets to grow up with two loving parents and a healthy lifestyle.

Friendly, punctual, straight forward, and a fighter. She has proven her work ethic and willingness to go the extra mile for a case placed in her care. I could not more highly recommend a divorce attorney.

Great experience
My family and I didn’t know of any lawyers when we were ready to begin the adoption process. I searched the internment and found Ms Adkins. What a great experience this was! She kept us informed the entire time. She was sensitive to our specific case. I’m extremely glad we had the pleasure of having Ms Adkins by our side during this life changing experience for my family.

Parental Rights Termination and Adoption Case
Shopped around for a good lawyer to help my wife adopt my son. I found Mrs. Adkins online and it could not have gone smoother. She always answered her phone or returned my call post haste and always explained every step of the process. Overall it was very smooth and went through without a hitch thanks to Mrs. Adkins. Truly a great professional. Initially she may come off as more expensive then other lawyer but her expertise allows her to quickly and efficiently work the case making it more economical overall.

THE BEST!!!
I used Ms. Adkins when she was just a paralegal for my divorce. She was amazing then and I began to send friends that needed a divorce to her. She is caring, kind, and helped all of us to the best of her ability. Now that she is a lawyer I totally continue to send people to her. I highly recommend Ms. Adkins to everyone.

Perfect
I didn't know where to start, when I wanted to file for divorce, but when I got in contact with Rachel we got the ball rolling quickly and didn't skip a beat. She's professional and I wouldn't recommend anyone else. She's straight forward and gets the job done and really cares about her clients.

Amazing....
Very diligent and to the point. She reviewed my case and gave me every scenario that could of played out regarding my divorce. She did make me feel positive and comfortable when I felt unsure and nervous. I strongly recommend her. And I look forward to hiring her again for my custody rights regarding my children. She helped me through this difficult time and Im positive that she will put forth every effort to assist and aid her next client. Again I would like to thank Mrs Adkins and her staff.

The Best
I hired Racheal to handle my complicated military divorce. My divorce had to be done preferably by a certain date and she made that happen in 3 months, which I am so grateful for. Racheal understood the urgency and complexity of my situation and worked effectively on her end to make my divorce final as fast as possible. Racheal loves what she does and she is very knowledgeable and aggressive when she needs to be. If she doesn't know something she will find out the answer and keep working. When I felt confused by the whole divorce process I knew Racheal had my back and that is a good feeling to have when you are going through the hardest time of you life. She kept me updated and gave me advise as the process moved on. My divorce was very successful for me and I now am waiting to receive child support, part of retirement and spousal support. Divorces are hard on so many levels but if you have Racheal in your corner she will fight for you and help you. She is also a genuinely good person that cares about how you are doing. I feel very lucky and grateful that I chose her as my lawyer. I would recommend her to anyone.

Adoption case
I hired her after my original lawyer took my money and didn't do anything for us. She was very knowledgeable of the law and was able to successfully have my husband adopt my son. It only took her 4 months for the entire process and she would update me on anything new. She gave military discount and notified me of where my money was going at all times. She is very professional and I would highly recommend her.

Great lawyer
Divorcing is not easy and a great lawyer will make a big difference in the process. Rachel always took the time to explain everything and I never felt like she was trying to rush me out the door. She was easy to get ahold of when I had any questions or concerns and most importantly, she actually cared about how I was managing throughout the entire process. She knows her job well and I would recommended her to anyone.

Divorce
I hired Ms. Adkins because my ex filed for divorce in Texas and needed it in Pennsylvania. She helped me understand the process and was ready to go the distance if I needed her to.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Racheal was recently on the other side of a case with me. Her client was a totally abusive jerk who tried to make her look bad. She did a great job for a low fee. Not only is Racheal one of the top Family Lawyers in El Paso but you get "one stop shopping " with her husband Tim who is a process server and can do investigation. She's so good that if my wife loses another one of my shirts, I'm sending her to Racheal. Try her - you'll like her."
