PhilosophyIn a word: persistence

Throughout her legal career, Rachel has gained human resource experience in a variety of different settings, including the Ontario government, a legal aid clinic, a labour law publishing house and now in private practice. This has enabled her to draw on different perspectives to develop creative and useful solutions for her clients.

B.A. Psychology: McGill University, J.D. Osgoode Hall Law School, practicing law since 2013


Rachel is a strong advocate for her clients and successfully assists her clients in resolving all kinds of workplace disputes. Rachel provides her clients with practical and strategic advice, and she has had considerable success achieving favourable resolutions for her clients. Rachel has appeared before the Ontario Superior Court, the Ontario Labour Relations Board and the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario. Rachel was also part of the legal team that argued significant cases at the Ontario Court of Appeal and Divisional Court.


Rachel’s family always knew she was going to be a lawyer, largely because she often refused to change out of her business suit when she was little. Her legal career was also foreshadowed by the fact that she never, ever let her sisters win an argument…and still doesn’t.

An interesting tidbit

Rachel loves trying (most) new things. Rachel has climbed a waterfall in Jamaica, zip-lined in Belize, skied a black diamond in Quebec and participated in the CN Tower Edgewalk.
