Summary

Rachael was born in Detroit, Michigan, and raised in the Midwest. She graduated from Indiana University in 2009, and the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in 2012. During her education, she studied abroad in Guanajuato, Mexico. She also served as the Vice President of the Hispanic Law Society, and interned at the Immigrants’ and Language Rights Center at Indiana Legal Services, and in the legal department at the Julian Center, a women’s shelter in Indianapolis.

After graduation, she spent two years in Harlingen, Texas, on the Mexican border, practicing family-based immigration and removal defense in both detained and non-detained courts. She then practiced immigration law with a small firm in Indianapolis, Indiana, including before the Indianapolis Field Office of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and the Chicago Immigration Court. She next practiced before the USCIS Offices and Immigration Courts in Newark, New Jersey and New York City, before returning to her native Michigan to establish her own practice.

Rachael represents immigrants before the Detroit Field Offices of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and U.S. Customs and Border Protection, as well as both detained and non-detained immigrants before the Detroit Immigration Court. She also represents clients before the U.S. Department of State in consular processing.

In her free time, Rachael enjoys spending time with her dog, Romeo, and with her family, hiking, camping and traveling.
