Testimonials

Efficient, empathetic yet realistic, extremely easy to talk to, and honest.

I interviewed a number of different lawyers and while all were knowledgeable. Rachel distinguished herself with her friendly but very practical demeanor. She was efficient, empathetic yet realistic, extremely easy to talk to, and honest. Compared to the other lawyers that I met with, I found her easy to relate to and felt she understood my situation and challenges very quickly.

We ended up using a mediator but Rachel provided excellent counsel when I needed it, especially towards the end of our process. Importantly, however, she prepared me well to enter into mediation. I feel the mediation process was more efficient because I got great advice from Rachel in the one hour consult we had prior.

Prior to our meeting, I had sent her a lengthy e-mail outlining the issues and my priorities. She took the time to read through this and had questions for me when we met. I felt this was respectful of my time and resulted in a much more productive, focused discussion with clear action items for me as a result. At the end of the day, divorce is a business transaction with a lot of emotion attached. Rachel made it a more pleasant experience throughout.

And while I did not need her as much as I anticipated (thankfully), I have heard others give her extremely high marks for getting the job done. In fact a friend of mine had a few lawyers before connecting with Rachel and once connected, her divorce was expedited. Our mediator, who is very well known in our county, spoke highly of Rachel too which gave me a lot of comfort.

I cannot recommend a Marin County, CA family law attorney more highly than Rachel.

Rachel was opposing counsel in a case which could have become highly contentious for people that had little funds to litigate. Once we met for a conference, we settled the case in one day. She is extremely intelligent, she does not take unreasonable positions and she litigates effectively for her clients. I cannot recommend a Marin County, CA family law attorney more highly than Rachel.

Top Family Law Attorney

Rachel was recommended to me by one of Marin’s top family law attorneys to handle my child support modification. Looking back on my experience both during divorce and post-divorce child support modification there are several things I would look for in an attorney and Rachel possesses all of these qualities and characteristics.

Read More

One of the most important qualities in an attorney that no one ever tells you to look for is their ability to work with other attorneys. Are they social with other attorneys? Are other attorneys their friends? If the answer is yes then the chances are much greater for an amicable fair settlement. Something I believe most people are looking for. Rachel possesses both of these qualities. Client accessibility at all times is very important. Rachel is always there for her clients, emotionally and legally. She is able to make things that seem like a crisis and very complicated become very simple and straightforward in a very comforting and assuring way. Nothing slips through the cracks as she and her staff are very attentive to every detail all at a price that is more than fair and reasonable. I would highly recommend her to anyone and my only regret is that I will most likely not have the opportunity to engage her services again.

Exceptional Attorney

Rachel came highly recommended to me by another attorney. My separation process had been fairly stressful and I wanted an attorney who was knowledgeable and reasonable and would not escalate an already deteriorating situation. I was somewhat dreading working with an attorney and I couldn’t have been more pleased with my experience with Rachel.

She is one of the most competent and professional people I have ever worked with – really exceptional – and I completely trusted that nothing would slip through the cracks with her. I received a lot of solid advice and she was very prompt in returning phone calls and emails, even on weekends.

During some of the more trying moments with my ex, Rachel was reassuring, confident and dealt with situations immediately. I was very satisfied with the results of my settlement. I have recommended Rachel to anyone I know going through a divorce because I was so pleased with my own experience.

Rachel and her team are fast, efficient and caring

Rachel and her team are fast, efficient and caring. Their professional demeanor keeps the other party from playing games (and getting away with it). This was the best experience I’ve ever had with an attorney.

Ms. Castrejon is the most efficient, intelligent and honest lawyer I have worked with

Her staff is as effective as Ms. Castrejon. I researched many attorneys before I approached Ms. Castrejon. She is well respected and well known by her peers and the court system. She even helped innovate the Bench Bar process in Marin County. I highly recommend her services to anyone facing the challenges of a divorce. I agree with Eric, she is compassionate, tough and fair in her billing practices. You always know where you stand with her.

If you are in need of a family law attorney in Marin County I would highly recommend considering Rachel.

Rachel Castrejon helped me settle a very difficult child support case. The other characters were challenging, I had moved out of the area, and there were many, many special circumstances. She did a wonderful job for our family.

Rachel has a unique mix of expertise, strength and compassion. She is tough when needed but what motivates her is helping others. She never loses sight of the fact that people and families are what is really important. This requires a great deal of skill when working in a system that is far from perfect and adversarial by design. She was sympathetic, but honest and direct with me when delivering messages I didn’t want to hear.

She was a strong advocate in the courtroom and an effective negotiator with the other parties. She empathizes with all perspectives and gave me much helpful advice on how best to build bridges and effective communication strategies with my family. Rachel goes above and beyond the call of duty. Litigating family law matters is an expensive proposition. Rachel is fair in her pricing, works extremely hard for her clients, and does her best to resolve issues quickly and affordably. If you are in need of a family law attorney in Marin County I would highly recommend considering Rachel.

I would highly recommend Rachel if you are going through a difficult divorce or have custody issues.

I found Rachel to be extremely responsive to me when I was going through the most difficult time in my life. She was always professional, guided me through ugliness and made everything seem smooth at an extremely reasonable hourly rate compared to the other lawyers I interviewed. I would highly recommend Rachel if you are going through a difficult divorce or have custody issues.

Rachel made my situation as smooth, easy, and affordable as possible.

My divorce had the potential to be complicated, painful, messy and expensive. However, I was blessed to have Rachel as my attorney. Efficient, affordable and skilled at “cutting to the chase,” Rachel made my situation as smooth, easy, and affordable as possible. She was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and able to communicate with opposing attorneys with just the right touch. Overall, a great experience in the midst of a difficult time in my life.
