    As founding partner of Berenson & Associates, PC, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, attorney Rachel Berenson has more than 22 years of legal experience providing unmatched legal counsel, advocacy and support to a diverse range of clients throughout the greater Albuquerque Metro and surrounding areas who have legal needs involving any of the following:

    · Personal injury

    · Nursing home abuse

    · Employment law

    Nationally recognized as one of the preeminent trial lawyers in the country, Ms. Berenson has gained significant success helping her clients face their serious and pressing legal challenges head-on by devising customized, effective strategies to help them obtain the favorable outcomes they expect and deserve. A compassionate and personable attorney, she fully understands the stress and uncertainty her clients are feeling as they deal with legal issues that affect not only their livelihoods and finances but their emotional and physical well-beings as well.

    As such, she works closely with all of her clients, advising them of their options and remaining with them throughout all legal proceedings to provide the highest level of assistance and support possible. From her efforts, she has recovered many substantial settlements and verdicts for her plaintiff clients while also obtaining much-needed restitution to employees who experience serious violations of their rights as workers.

    Honored for her impeccable professionalism and commitment to those she serves, Ms. Berenson holds an AV Preeminent peer review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell, and she has received many other accolades from her peers along with excellent reviews and positive referrals from her satisfied clients.

    A 1993 graduate of Lewis and Clark College, Ms. Berenson studied at the Universidad de Mendoza in Argentina before returning to the U.S. to pursue her legal degree. She obtained her Juris Doctor from William Mitchell College of Law (now Mitchell Hamline School of Law) in 1997, and she has earned certification in Car Accident Reconstruction, which helps her to better evaluate and prepare for her clients' personal injury claims resulting from car accidents.

    Active in her legal community, Ms. Berenson is a member of the National Association of Trial Attorneys and the Nation Employment Lawyers Association, among her other professional affiliations. She is fluent in Spanish as well as Bahasa Indonesian, which helps her directly communicate with a broader clientele.
