The legal process is hard. A good attorney can make sure it isn’t any harder than it has to be.
Family Law Senior Associate Attorney Rachel Bentley is fiercely committed to doing the right thing. However, she also knows that sometimes “the right thing” just doesn’t happen. As an attorney, that’s where she comes in.
“People are injured, denied benefits, or hurt by someone they loved,” Rachel said. “Attorneys are there to step into the gap and help make sure our clients receive a just outcome.”
Rachel majored in English at Eastern Kentucky University, with an emphasis on creative and technical writing. After graduating in 2009, she went on to earn her master’s degree in library and information science from Wayne State University before attending the Claude W. Pettit College of Law at Ohio Northern University.
Before joining Robinson & Henry’s Family Law Team, Rachel represented claimants at Social Security disability hearings and handled worker’s compensation cases. She has handled Social Security hearings in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Denver, Fort Collins, and Alamosa, as well as worker’s comp hearings in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and Denver.
Additionally, Rachel managed a team of eight attorneys and two legal assistants as a supervising attorney at the Social Security Administration. This experience left her with a firm sense of empathy and a burning desire to do whatever she can to help her clients.
Rachel has been recognized for her work representing Social Security claimants. She received a Deputy Commissioner Honor Award at the Social Security Administration in May 2021 and was a presenter at the 2017 Colorado Springs SSA Representative Conference.
Rachel’s clients can expect clear and prompt communication as she helps them navigate a difficult process that hugely impacts their lives. Quality, accuracy, and efficiency are her top priorities.
Rachel lives with her boyfriend, their cat, and two dogs. In her spare time, she enjoys going to see movies, doing escape rooms, reading, and writing.
