With years of experience managing complex financial arrangements in divorce litigation, Rashel Zywica understands how to protect clients’ interests in high-net-worth divorce situations. Rashel excels at developing strategies to succeed at all stages of divorce and family law litigation. While recognizing the pain and intense emotion that accompany the divorce process, Rashel refuses to be drawn into wasteful courtroom conflict, focusing instead on achieving the best outcomes for her clients in every aspect of the divorce settlement.
In addition to her zealous and skillful advocacy on behalf of clients, Rashel is also committed to educating her clients so they become empowered to make the best choices for the future. She is never too busy to answer questions. While she takes great satisfaction in gaining clients’ objectives through negotiation or litigation, the aspect of family law that she enjoys most is the opportunity to interact with clients and guide them through a difficult time in their lives to reach a brighter future.

Cardozo School of Law.
