Excellent Family Law Attorney
Rachel is highly skilled and diligent. She allayed many of my concerns during my divorce and custody case, and brought to light many different considerations along the way, critical to custody determination and the particulars of my divorce. She and her team were always there to help explain my options and key decisions for my case. I highly recommend her as a family law attorney!
Review from Avvo
Rachel Sedita is an excellent lawyer who knows the law well. She and her paralegal staff (specifically Zaida Lazos) did an exceptional job with my divorce case. Rachel took the time to hear all of my concerns and clearly, concisely outlined all the different courses of action including the positives and negatives with each choice. Furthermore, Rachel and her staff always responded to me in a timely manner. I could not have asked for better representation, and working with Rachel was incredibly easy and the least stressful part of a very difficult, painful event in my life. Without hesitation, I give Rachel Sedita my highest recommendation.

Rachel helped work on a child custody case for me regarding my 5 year old grandson. It was a hard case to win. She worked hard to gather information and research all of my options. I won custody.
