Rachel Bentley

Partner - Family Law

phone iconCall: 719-284-6262

The legal process is hard. A good attorney can make sure it isn’t any harder than it has to be.

Partner and Family Law 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 a 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 a tremendous amount of courtroom experience having participated in Social Security and worker’s compensation hearings throughout Colorado, including in Alamosa, Colorado Springs, Denver, Fort Collins, and Pueblo.

Rachel was recognized for her work representing Social Security claimants. She received a Deputy Commissioner Honor Award in May 2021 for her work at the Social Security Administration. Rachel also was a presenter at the 2017 Colorado Springs Social Security Administration Representative Conference.

During her role at the SSA, Rachel supervised a team of eight attorneys and two legal assistants. This experience left her with a firm sense of empathy and a desire to do whatever she can to help her clients.

Individuals and families who work with Rachel can expect clear and prompt communication as she helps them navigate a difficult process that greatly affects 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, using her wits in escape rooms, reading, and writing.

Rachel Bentley is a consummate professional and her team as well as all of Robinson & Henry were welcoming and put me at ease. I could not be happier with how my divorce process went through despite a very challenging petitioner and her representation. Rachel had our game plan within the 1st month and the process unfolded exactly as she had proposed and to be honest, it actually was better than I had envisioned when I was first served divorce papers. What could have dragged on for several more months due to the opposing sides inaction, Rachel drove the process and completed the divorce in just over 5 months, saving me both time and money. Thank you Robinson & Henry for assigning Rachel and Kim to represent me in one of the most difficult times in my life. You knocked it out of the park and I would give you all my highest recommendation!” – John

“The phrase “More than just lawyers” was never more substantiated than when I retained Rachel Bentley. My child custody issue needed someone who would aggressively plead my case, someone who would be supportive and a strong advocate in a high conflict situation. During the trial she never wavered and was able to minimize distractions from the opposing counsel. Her strategic deployment of evidence exposed false information and I am very pleased with how the trial was handled. She always had my back and did a great job at presenting all options which helped me make informed decisions. I appreciate that she was always very quick to respond, always willing to listen and everything she did was handled promptly without mistakes. Rachel, Kim and all the staff I worked with were competent, professional, and personable. I highly recommend Rachel Bentley for all your Family Law needs. 5 star all the way for me.” – Brenden
