All of the accolades you’ve read below are spot on. I am a lawyer myself but when one of my adult children needed competent, caring and effective representation with regard to a very serious state court matter I immediately called Rachel and thankfully she agreed to take the case. Through her brilliant and effective advocacy the matter was ultimately dismissed and my family could not be more pleased with her efforts on our behalf. She is a very special attorney and a true credit to our profession.

We hired Rachel Self for an immigration issue that involved a past criminal offense which would have caused my husband to be deported. Attorney Self was able to overturn a prior sentence and we are now on the road to citizenship! She is extremely knowledgeable, confident, honest and compassionate. She is there for her clients, answering questions nights, weekends, above and beyond our expectations. If you find yourself in the need of an attorney, you are in the best of hands with Rachel Self.

Finding Rachel was one of the best things to ever happen to me. She made my immigration case run smoothly, was incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and attentive to all of my needs and questions. I achieved everything I wanted to with Rachel’s assistance and I couldn’t recommend her any higher.

Rachel Self did a first rate job handling my immigration case. She made sure that I understood the process, explained step by step what i needed to do, and quickly replied to all of my inquiries. When i came to see Rachel I was expecting to have to pay for post conviction relief services which other lawyers had told me I would need, but Rachel reviewed my case and saved me a lot of money on unnecessary legal work which speaks to her honesty and dedication to her clients. I would strongly recommend Rachel Self to anyone.
