Kind, Real, Excellent Service
RZA offers very top-notch service from a very wise and down to earth professional. Rachael helped me review a lease for a commercial space I am renting as well as a publishing contract. She has also aided me in estate planning services when my mom was dying and I needed some significant help. She broke down what was needed into language I understood, and always treated me with immense kindness in the process. She is the real deal, and I will never hesitate to call her for future estate planning and lease review needs that I have!

Rachael is always wonderful to work with. She is quick to respond to any questions and has a quick turn around time for any deliverables. She is tough yet flexible and will work hard to finish a deal. She always provides sound, quality, and experienced legal advice. We recommend her 10 out of 10 times!

Rachael is incredibly knowledgeable about the marijuana industry. She is friendly, helpful and handles details beautifully. I always felt assured and confident that I was being taken care of by the best. She made the sale of my business a lot less painful than it could have been and even schooled the buyer’s attorneys on the in and outs of how to handle a sale to best accommodate the MED. I had such a great experience with RZA. I would definitely recommend Rachael. She’s the BEST!
