As an attorney, Raquel’s practice is driven by her desire to help people. She was born and raised in South Florida and she earned her bachelor’s degree in political science and psychology from the Florida State University. While pursuing her undergraduate degree, Raquel served as lead attorney on the Florida State Mock Trial team. Upon graduation, she taught English at an elementary school in Seville, Spain and the following year volunteered with the African Refugee Development Center in Tel Aviv, Israel. Both experiences fueled Raquel’s passion to attend law school and fight for justice on behalf of others.
She received her law degree from the Emory University School of Law where she enjoyed being part of the Evans Moot Court team and serving as President of the Emory Public Interest Committee. While in law school, Raquel worked at a law firm that specialized in civil litigation and interned with the United States Attorney’s Office which reinforced her commitment to public service. She also served as a law clerk for a Fulton Superior Court Judge.
Raquel began her legal career practicing family law where she gained significant litigation experience. However, she joined The Champion Firm because she wanted to focus on vigorously advocating for personal injury victims and their families through extremely difficult times in their lives. Raquel cares deeply about each and every client and believes in transparency and frequent communication.
Raquel currently lives in Metro Atlanta with her husband Jason and chihuahua Stevie. When she is not advocating for her clients, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends as well as volunteering in the community, enjoying live music, traveling, and cooking.
