Rachael handles a broad spectrum of litigation matters, including but not limited to:
Breach of contract
Adversary Proceedings in Bankruptcy
Claims relating to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act ("CFAA")
Tortious interference with contract
Whether you have been sued or are thinking of filing suit, or just find yourself in a civil legal dispute and don’t know what to do, you need the assistance of an experienced litigator. Because litigation can be expensive, it is important that your lawyer carefully evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your case, give you honest advice, and endeavor to find resolutions that avoid litigation, wherever possible and appropriate. However, in order to properly make that assessment, it is imperative that your lawyer be ready and willing to aggressively protect your interests in court.
Your litigation matter is Rachael's priority. She provides high quality legal representation while working smart to run the case in a cost-effective matter. Depending upon the size of your case, she has the ability to collaborate with experienced attorneys to properly staff the matter.
Just as in sports, collaboration and teamwork are sometimes necessary in litigation to get the job done right. Although litigation is not exactly a contact sport, it can be contentious and, depending upon the size of your legal matter, might require additional lawyers. Should that be the case, Rachael has the ability to adequately staff your litigation matter with top-notch, experienced lawyers.
For other lawyers and law firms (large and small) who are looking for the same kind of collaboration on one of their matters, Rachael is available to assist on a contract basis. Whether the need is for local counsel, a single project, or to meet a staffing need on a case, Rachael can help.
ESTATE PLANNING & PROBATE
Rachael can assist you with your estate planning needs. Estate planning packages are available for individuals and couples, and may include the following depending upon individual circumstances:
Last Will and Testament
Medical Power of Attorney
Directive to Physicians (Living Will)
Durable Power of Attorney
Appointment of Guardian
Estate planning is for everyone, no matter your age or the size of your assets. When you take the time to have basic estate planning documents prepared by a licensed attorney, you ensure that your wishes will be respected after death or in the event you are incapacitated for any length of time. Without these documents, the probate court takes charge and will appoint an executor for your estate. Duties of estate administration, legal guardianship matters, financial management and your medical care could be in the hands of strangers who have no idea what your wishes are or how you want assets distributed. With these documents properly executed and ready for use, you gain a peace of mind knowing that your affairs will be handled according to your wishes. Importantly, your family will also be spared the headache and additional expense of the probate court.
