About Rachel

Learn Rachel’s areas of practice.

I am a Mom, Wife, Daughter and Sister. Family has always been everything to me, but becoming a mom in 2013 made me realize that I would do anything for that little person and that her needs now came before mine. This is the same philosophy behind having a well-organized estate plan in place. One of the most important gifts you can offer your loved ones is a clear plan for the future. Helping individuals and families ensure that their loved ones are adequately protected is my passion, and I feel so lucky to be able to provide my clients with peace of mind. 

I believe that estate planning is essential for people of all ages, regardless of their wealth. It gives you the opportunity to make decisions about many of the most important issues in your life and the people you love--from naming a guardian for your child to appointing someone to carry out your wishes with respect to your health and finances. While it is impossible to control many aspects of your life, it is possible to make your wishes known and make sure your loved ones are protected through an estate plan.

Grateful
My husband and I were in need of a estate trust restatement. We went to Rachel after being talked down to by our previous attorney because of his over-complicated approach and communication. We knew it didn't have to be that complex. Rachel was able to explain and execute our wishes in a clear and simple way. It helped us feel more in control and it was a very pleasant experience working with her and all the staff. So glad we found her!

Creating a Trust
Ms. Shekh did a great job working with myself and my husband in creating a trust that will work for all of our combined family. It was a complicated procedure that she walked us through patiently - and we are very satisfied that we have everything in order so that our family members will have an easy time distributing our wealth after we pass.

Excellent Counsel
After receiving a referral from my friend Margaret, I engaged Rachel and her team to update my will and create a trust in summer 2021. Rachel was excellent to work with, listened well and answered all of my questions. I recently had to make some updates to my estate documents, and once again Rachel and her team made it as painless and streamlined as possible. Highly recommended!

Unmatched level of service, priced from the heart!
Caring, compassionate, & engaged are just a few words that come to mind to describe our experience with Rachel and her team. It was such a pleasure to work with true professionals who go above and beyond to ensure an exceptional life changing experience! Thank you Rachel and Kiera, for being out of the box thinkers and for separating yourselves from the status quo lawyer experience. The heartbeat of why you do what you do, was a breath of fresh air for me and my family. Look no further if you are in need of all things estate planning.

We really enjoyed working with Rachel and highly recommend her. Excellent Attorney who will do an outstanding job for you. Jay and Lissa S.

Professional, Courteous and Friendly.
Rachel developed Estate Planning documents for my wife, Allison, and I. Our needs were somewhat complex, requiring coordination with an attorney in another state, but Rachel worked through all our needs very efficiently and with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. We would highly recommend her - as a matter of fact, we already have recommended her to our friends.

Everything I wanted, and more.
I can hardly believe my good luck in finding Rachel. After my husband died I needed to have a new Will and Powers of Attorney drawn up. Rachel made those things easy for me, and made sure I understood everything and overlooked nothing. She went beyond to helping me realize several other issues I hadn't considered. I was dealing with some personal issues at the time, and Rachel came to my home rather than making me come to her office and followed up with phone calls and emails. Nothing could have been easier.. She listened to my concerns and patiently answered each one. I can't imagine using any other attorney.

Just the level I needed
We worked with Rachel to put a will and power if attorney in place. Quick documents were not in-depth enough, but most estate planning services were very expensive and beyond what we needed. Rachel was great for our young family, working with our needs and schedule to help us feel protected. She brought great ideas to the table so we didn't start from scratch, and helped us put our ideas into a plan.

Fantastic & Thorough
Rachel was worth every penny! I hired her to help with estate planning, which can be a very intimidating and surprisingly emotional undertaking. Rachel took me step by step through the process, answered all my questions (without making me feel stupid) and assured me that should something happen to my husband and I - our children were covered. Very assuring. She's awesome.
