More About Rachel

Rachel's practice includes a variety of single-plaintiff and class action litigation, and involves defending employers in lawsuits alleging wrongful termination, discrimination, retaliation, harassment, wage and hour violations, and breach of contract. Rachel also advises employers concerning various employment-related issues. Additionally, she engages in pro bono legal work, including representation of foster parents seeking retroactive and prospective state funding to care for their foster children. 

Rachel joined the firm initially as part of the Labor & Employment Department’s Fellowship program, an innovative training-focused program for law students and recent graduates with an affinity for Labor and Employment law. She has thus gained vital training and experience drafting position statements, summary judgment moving papers, motions to compel, demurrers, removals, petitions to compel arbitration, motions in limine and other critical employment litigation briefs.

While in law school, Rachel was a research assistant for University of Southern California Gould School of Law Professor Abby K. Wood and served as a Senior Content Editor for the Southern California Review of Law and Social Justice. Before law school, Rachel worked in the insurance industry. She helped manage an insurance and financial services agency and honed her skills by providing quality customer service and customizing insurance policies for a wide range of clientele.
