Areas of Practice

Rachel defends employers against claims of discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, retaliation, and wage and hour noncompliance. She has represented clients in state and federal court as well as before administrative agencies including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH).

An experienced litigator, Rachel has secured a number of favorable outcomes on behalf of industry-leading clients across various sectors.

During law school, Rachel served as a judicial extern to the Honorable Chief Judge James Ware in the Northern District of California and as a law clerk at the EEOC. She was also a member of the USF Law Review.
