Rachel J. Eisenhaure

Of Counsel Attorney

Rachel Eisenhaure has experience navigating disputes in all postures.  A fearless advocate, her extensive appellate experience gives her confidence in approaching novel issues in the law.  While an assistant district attorney, Rachel argued twelve cases before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and over thirty cases before the Massachusetts Appeals Court.  Rachel has extensive and diverse civil litigation experience in both state and federal court in areas including predatory lending, real estate and foreclosure, insurance coverage, employment law, and business litigation.  Rachel’s vivid written advocacy has carried the day on multiple occasions, with phrases from her briefs appearing verbatim in the published opinions of the courts.

Clients also seek out Rachel for her advice in resolving disputes before litigation because of her understanding of both the financial and human contours of the situation and because of her finesse with delicate subjects.  In pre-litigation discussions, Rachel has laid out resolution and litigation game plans for terminated employees, for business owners brought to their knees by usurious loans, and for a publicly traded company whose sale of a flagship product line did not go to plan.
