Rachel graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Business Administration. She then spent 15 years in the medical industry before changing careers and receiving her law degree from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University.

After law school, Rachel served as a law clerk for the Honorable Judge Cohen, the Presiding Judge for the Maricopa County Family Court. Upon completion of her clerkship, she joined the Arizona Attorney General’s Office as an Assistant Attorney General, representing the Department of Child Safety. She has appeared in hundreds of trials while also handling an extensive caseload requiring upwards of 12 court hearings a day.

Rachel joined the Cantor Law Group seeking new challenges. She brings her extensive courtroom experience to the Cantor Law Group team, helping clients navigate through complex family law matters. It is a role Rachel takes seriously; her own experience with divorce and child custody issues drives her desire to help others on their own difficult and emotional journeys. Having taken on contentious cases for the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, she knows how to get results while also understanding how to mediate tension between opposing parties.

When not advocating for her clients, Rachel is an avid golfer and enjoys spending time with her husband exploring and hiking the wonders of Arizona.

Great lawyer
Rachel is a great listener and was truly supportive towards me throughout the whole process. I appreciated the kindness and also the directness of the knowledge she provided. I was very comfortable with Rachel being my lawyer. I was in a different state while we were working on my case and Rachel's communication was excellent. Thank you for everything!

Great divorce lawyer
Rachel Caldwell, Alexis Ronquillo, and Cantor group represented me during my legal separation. The process was emotionally painful and complex, but I am super glad that I was working with Rachel and Cantor. They simplified and supported me through this process which was a huge help. I am extremely happy with the choice I made when I hired them. Some key points to highlight: - On-time (unlike the opposing party) were executing what needed to be done. Stuff like submitting paperwork, writing agreements, handling court communications, etc. - Met me several times to discuss different options, pros/cons, risks, and path forward. - Helped to find a common ground between me and my wife. Heard my preference/requirements; and did not jump into the aggressive path as the first solution. - Navigated complexities around dividing certain types of assets and historical context. - Had a Cantor group behind their decisions: when there were open questions, there was a brainstorming session, and helped outline options and explain the law. - Their pay structure was very transparent, and I never had questions, about why I was billed for something. I got a feeling that they had my interests in mind when picking what work needed to be done. Overall I had a wonderful experience with Rachel Caldwell and Cantor group and strongly recommend them. I do not think that anybody would enjoy divorce / separation process, but they made it less painful for me, so I am thankful for that.

Continuous support in a tough custody case
Rachel worked with me on a tough case where the other parent was trying very aggressively to cut me out of my daughter's life completely, not to mention get whatever she could out of the divorce settlement. She was invaluable in the courtroom and helped demonstrate clearly that that person's statements were completely false, leading to my being awarded shared legal and 50% physical custody. Since then Rachel has been invaluable in answering questions and helping me maintain my rights in a situation where the other parent is still trying to minimize my involvement, including winning a contempt verdict against that person for her actions. Though I definitely wish my situation were easier, I am always glad that Rachel is on my team to help.

A Lawyer you want on your team!
Rachel was great in helping me navigate a successful divorce case. My only regret is that I did not hire her sooner!

Committed professional
Rachel Caldwell of Cantor Family Law and her team directed Gary Drapers divorce proceedings until consent degree was signed by the judge. In every way from start to finish, with unconditional professionalism, Rachel made known and explained the best way to direct the proceedings. Even though my wife's attorney was consistently tardy in his responses, Rachel persevered without complaint until the divorce was finalized. When considering a family law attorney, Rachel Caldwell at Cantor Law should be your first contact. SINCERELY Gary Draper

Rachel is awsome
I recently hired Rachel for family court for my time with children. It was a difficult case to say the least. Rachel and her team worked extremely hard to get us where we needed to be. She constantly stayed in touch with me as well Alexis. Everything that came up she explained in detail as it went along. She listened and I never left a message without a prompt and quick call back. She was very up front with her thoughts and never held back. She was very prepared for trial and aggressive when she needed to be. DM Cantor is an excellent law firm and I highly recommend her if you want good results. Rachel is very experienced and takes her job serious. The firm made you feel like family and are very easy to deal with. Than you Rachel.

Rachel is the best
My husband and I recently required legal assistance to represent us in a Grandparents Rights lawsuit. After some research and a free consultation regarding our case, we agreed to hire the Cantor Law Firm. Although being highly frustrated with the legal system, particularly the amount of time it takes (6 months) , our attorney representative , Rachel Caldwell, expertly and confidentially guided us and calmed us as we negotiated through this process. She was very professional. Rachel returned all of our phone calls and provided us with all information in a very timely fashion. Of course we are pleased and excited by the outcome of the court process being highly in our favor. This outcome was achieved by our attorney through the presentation of credible evidence to the court in our behalf. We would highly recommend Cantor Law Group to anyone requiring confident and determined legal representation . - [ ]

Excellent case results
My case had a number of arguments to present, and Rachel did an excellent job of clearly presenting them concisely without losing the substance that helped convince the judge and win the case.

Divorce process
Rachel and her team were very helpful in making an emotional and stressful situation less so. She was very responsive to my questions and concerns. A divorce is not an easy situation by any means, but it helps to have a group of professionals working for you.

Great!
Rachel was very helpful and professional every step along the way. Initiated the process for full custody back in February, now the case is closed and I have everything I want. Kept me informed and answered every question I had. Rachel is the attorney you should see for family law!

Helpful
Rachel helped me get an order of protection against me dismissed. She took the time to review the case, maintain communication and eased my anxiety through this difficult time. She was able to proof that all accusations were false. I'm now able to see my child after a month and exercise my parenting time in the meantime while we get ready for family court. I love the fact that she informs me of every step she has taken or plan to take. Very professional and down to earth.
