Overview

An internship at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) fueled Rachel’s interest in commercial litigation, specifically, tax and insurance litigation.

Rachel uses her knowledge of how the IRS views litigation and settlements to the advantage of clients. Her accounting background complements her understanding of commercial litigation and general business practices. Rachel is attracted to commercial litigation because she believes in advocacy, be it for a client or a cause.

Working in the office of her law school’s general counsel, Rachel gained experience in compliance work and contract review. She takes pleasure in delving into tax research and procedural processes, and she is comfortable working at federal, state and local levels of taxation.

To better serve clients, Rachel is pursuing her certified public accountant (CPA) license.
