A truly gifted attorney with a huge heart
After interviewing 4 other attorneys, I finally met with Rachel to discuss my child custody case. She's extremely competent, very thoughtful, provides excellent feedback/ideas and after our lengthy consultation, I just knew that she was the one. In retrospect, I'm so thankful I went with my gut feeling. She's not only an exceptional attorney but she has incredible integrity and passion. I am so fortunate she represented me and recommend her to anyone with a custody situation. Rachel is absolutely stellar.

Trustworthy, Intelligent Attorney
I highly recommend Rachel as an attorney for Family Law cases. First, she is trustworthy. Rachel was continually honest, from her billing methods, to her legal advice. She was realistic about what I could expect, and her advice was spot on. Second, she is intelligent. She knows the law and, when necessary, can make her way through complex, unique, issues. She is a skilled strategist, thorough researcher, and excellent writer. She makes sure she understands the particulars of a situation, takes the time to answer questions, and uses this same talent to translate client needs into legal terms. Lastly, Rachel genuinely cared about my case, which showed in all the work she did on my behalf. When necessary, she fought for me, though she always tried to handle matters in the most diplomatic manner possible first. When one needs a lawyer, it is usually not a good situation, however, Rachel demonstrated there are professionals in the field who genuinly care about their clients, and take their work seriously, in order to achieve the best possible outcome. I’m very grateful to have worked with this talented and compassionate attorney!

Excellent Lawyer
I worked with Rachel for about 2 years in my divorce and child custody case and have to say that she has met all my expectations in every single aspect of the divorce process. She listens to her clients very carefully, explains everything thoroughly and is very knowledgeable due to her diligence. It was so pleasant to work with her, because she is very responsive, honest and skillful in her writings. It is thanks to Rachel that I have finally achieved what I wanted and I am very grateful for that.For me the most important factors about attorneys are that they act on your behalf , are trustworthy, are a few steps ahead and down to earth. Rachel has won my trust and loyalty in all these aspects. I highly recommend her as a divorce attorney if you want to be on the strong and safe side.
