Rachel S. Bates

I’m always up for a challenge; you’ll never know what you can achieve if you don’t try.

My Approach

I represent lenders, borrowers, and servicers in connection with complex real estate and other commercial transactions, focusing on the areas of multifamily housing and servicing. I primarily represent lenders who originate loans which are later sold to Fannie Mae for multifamily housing projects around the country.

I had a non-traditional path to the practice of law. I graduated undergrad while eight months pregnant with my second child; I truly understand the value of hard work and persistence. I continued this routine through law school, working at night while raising my children at the same time. Though I think I’m still catching up on sleep, I quickly learned that every moment is important, and how to prioritize my time and work as hard as I can when things need to get done.

I spend my time outside of work with my husband and two children; we’re either on the soccer field or at the hockey rink.
