Rachel Moore is a Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois Fellow and has a private practice in Northfield, Illinois, devoted exclusively to collaborative law, facilitative mediation, and representing parties utilizing mediation. Whether serving as a mediator or an attorney on behalf of one party, Rachel understands the sensitive nature of family law, and handles each case efficiently and with respect.
Prior to starting her own practice, Rachel worked in family law for five years and also served as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Illinois for eight years. As an attorney, Rachel represented thousands of individual clients and always sought to find creative ways to help people resolve conflicts. An accomplished litigator, Rachel successfully practiced in federal and state court and also before administrative tribunals. Rachel believes strongly, however, that there are far more positive outcomes from collaborative divorce and mediated disputes than from expensive, contentious litigation in the family law context. Through her family law cases, involving complicated property and child-related issues, Rachel realized that there are rarely clear winners and losers, and that creative collaborative and mediated agreements are more likely to enable all parties and their children to succeed in the future.
Rachel graduated magna cum laude from Bates College in 1996, and received her law degree from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in 1999. She trained in mediation at Northwestern University’s School of Continuing Studies.
Rachel and her husband live in Evanston, Illinois.
