Rachel began her solo practice in January 2011, teaming as second chair to Krauss PLLC in achieving a favorable multimillion dollar verdict in an asset management partnership dispute following a 12-day federal jury trial.


Rachel’s firm, teaming with a few other plaintiffs’ firms, achieved a multimillion dollar class-wide settlement of a dispute brought on behalf of Pennsylvania landowners against Chesapeake Energy Corporation, arising from alleged improper royalty deductions. Her firm also represented an environmental technology corporation defending a federal labor and employment action, as well as an anesthesia services corporation seeking financial redress on behalf of its physicians involved in a contract dispute with a former medical affiliate.

She thoroughly enjoys the academic side of the law, along with her frequent exposure to different industries and claims.
