Rachel Hott joined the firm in 2021 with a passion for family law matters and helping people navigate legal issues in their time of need. Rachel enjoys assisting clients through litigation, negotiation, and mediation.
Rachel earned her undergraduate degree from James Madison University, where she was a founding member of a Restorative Justice organization, traveling to South Africa to study the subject. She then graduated from the University of Richmond School of Law in 2020.
While in law school, Rachel participated in a fellowship with Central Virginia Legal Aid, assisting the staff attorney with protective orders and separation agreements. Additionally, Rachel had the distinct opportunity to intern for the Honorable Clarence Jenkins, Jr. in the Richmond Circuit Court, where she observed and worked on many family law matters.
Following her graduation from law school, Rachel had the opportunity to clerk for the Honorable Judges of the Henrico County Circuit Court. This experience gave Rachel a great perspective on the court’s handling of domestic matters and instilled the importance of good rapport with clients, opposing counsel, and the court.
