Rachel’s practice focuses on transportation law (including commercial trucking, FELA, and admiralty), appellate law, and insurance coverage, with additional practice and experience in personal injury, premises liability, subrogation, dram shop, and construction defect litigation. Rachel has also served as an arbitrator for commercial trucking disputes. In addition, Rachel has significant experience working in the still developing body of law specifically applicable to homeowners’ associations and their insurers which involves an overlap between tort, contract, and corporate law. Her practice includes all aspects of litigation from initial report of a possible claim, initial investigation and evidence preservation, through negotiation, trial, and any appeal process.
Prior to joining private practice, Rachel was a law clerk to the Honorable Sharon L. Hall, Tenth Judicial District, Minnesota, where she gained valuable behind-the-scenes insight into court management of civil litigation from initial filing through post-trial motions.
When she is not working, Rachel loves gardening, reading, and promoting community involvement in the arts and education. She is a former Board Member of the Walking Shadow Theater Company (2012-2013), and has been a performing artist in the Minnesota Art Shanty Projects since 2010.
