As a family law attorney, Rachel L. Young is committed to assisting her clients through difficult times and complex court systems.  By cultivating strong attorney-client relationships, she is able to provide more informed client representation.  She also understands the needs of her clients, advocating for their financial and emotional well-being throughout every step of the divorce process.
To Ms. Young, divorce is not just a legal case - it is a roadmap for the future.  For this reason, she takes the time to understand the client's goals in order to fight for the best possible outcome.  She also strives to protect her client's interests so they are able to walk away from their divorce in a positive direction.  The work she does has a lasting effect on her clients' lives, which is why she pushes for superior results.
