About Rachel

Learn Rachel’s areas of practice.

I am an estate planning and elder law attorney in the Twin Cities, working primarily out of St. Paul, MN.  

 

I am passionate about providing legal services in the areas of estate planning, probate, elder law, and family law.  These are areas of law that are intensely person in nature - and I do not take the responsibility of providing counsel around such issues lightly.  My Midwest work ethic drives me to work relentlessly in my clients' best interests.

Highly recommend Rachel for her services!
My husband and I used Rachel to do our Will, Health Directives, and Power of Attorney especially once we had our first child. It was important to me to make sure those documents were all in place. She was extremely professional and made sure to explain things in terms we could understand. She made the process extremely easy, painless, and quick. I would recommend her to anyone who needs these services!

Excellent Service
Being relatively new to the Cities, we sought referrals for estate planning and Rachel was recommended to us. From the moment we met with her through the completion of our wills and estate planning, Rachel helped us determine exactly what we wanted for our complicated situation. She recognized our short and long term view and crafted documents that clearly reflect our goals. We'd strongly recommend Rachel to family and friends alike.

Quality work, supported my decision-making to meet my needs
I had a Will, Power of Attorney, and Health Care Directive created for me. Rachel raised several considerations that were new for me, provided sample wording for consideration, and patiently persisted through several edits to accomplish exactly what met my needs. She asked good questions, provided good information to support my decision-making and produced quality products. I highly recommend her.

Will and Estate Planning
With a young daughter at home, we finally made it a priority to begin our Estate Planning, including our Will and Power of Attorney. Rachel made the process quite painless and kept us on task. It is obvious she enjoys what she does and takes great care in making sure all of OUR documented requests were clear and concise. We are very pleased with the level of courtesy and professionalism from Ms. Schromen and look forward to working with her in the future!

Estate Plan
A few months ago we learned that Rachel was starting an estate law practice. We had been remiss in starting our estate planning so we welcomed the opportunity to have Rachel help us in these matters. She is a very pleasant and intelligent young lady. I especially liked the fact that she was able to find answers to some complicated questions. She was very straightforward in telling us what she knew and when she didn't know, she quickly found that information. I am glad we trusted her to do this work. It is a great benefit that she is young as other estate lawyers we have talked to were quite senior and I worried that when we died, they would not be there to help our son with our estate. All in all, a very good experience. I would highly recommend her for this type of work.

Important documents explained clearly
I hired Rachel Therese Schromen to draft estate planning documents, including a will and power of attorney. She was very clear in her communication and was easy to get a hold of to consult with. Met in person twice, initial meeting and a document signing. She made the process easy and helped me understand when and how to use these documents.

Attorney Recommendation
Recently, my elderly parents from North Dakota began declining in health and needed to reach out to the family for additional support. They moved in with me and it quickly became apparent that I would need to have the power to help them pay bills, write checks, and complete their taxes. In addition to this, I was busy trying to establish continued care and having access to their medical information was critical. I reached out to my network of friends and was given Rachel Schromen’s contact information. I was informed that she would be attentive to all my family’s needs and not focused on high-pressure marketing to sell us on her services. My initial call to Rachel illustrated that what I was told was accurate. She spent time asking questions, engaging with us and our family’s situation. In fact, my parents were celebrating their 60th anniversary, and Rachel surprised us all with a call on the actual day to congratulate them. My parents have mobility issues and Rachel graciously offered to travel to our home to meet with them. In addition, Rachel offered to review their will and health care directive paperwork to ensure that all their documents were in order. She continually provided us with options throughout the process including trusted resources that may be needed as their needs progress. To save on cost she emailed me a questioner to fill out and send back to her once we completed it. Once the legal paperwork was completed, she called me to set-up a time that was convenient for us; which ended up being on a Saturday. Prior to Rachel’s arrival, we were wondering what the final bill was going to be with such superior service. As promised, we were billed the amount that Rachel quoted us initially. Overall, I am very pleased with Rachel’s excellent services and support. I would highly recommend her to others facing similar circumstances, who are looking for trustworthy, reliable and expedient help. Thank you Rachel! Jennifer

Highly Recommend
I hired Rachel to do a health care directive and power of attorney before I went on a vacation out of the country. I did not know what either document was before working with her, and she explained them to me very well. She anticipated a lot of my questions and made sure I understood the documents I was signing. I had a few questions come up after we were done signing the documents and Rachel still responded quickly and thoroughly. I have recommended my family and friends work with Rachel, and plan on working with her to do the rest of my estate planning.
