Meet The Managing Attorney
Rachel E. Khirallah
As a seasoned trial lawyer, Rachel Khirallah has been representing clients in real estate disputes for more than fourteen years. Whether she is representing a large group of homeowners fighting a builder for failing to disclose defects or an individual fighting to save their home, Ms. Khirallah zealously advocates for her clients. She is decisive, experienced, dedicated, and relentless. The legal system is complicated, expensive, and difficult, if not impossible, for consumers to access, especially against a corporation. Rachel went to law school to give access to the legal network to those who would otherwise not have it and in her words, “is so fortunate to love the work she does and gets up every morning wondering how she is going to change the world”. According to Rachel, the average individual does not have the resources to fight the corporations who have wronged them, and Rachel gives access to the legal network to those who would otherwise not have it.
