Bankruptcy can offer a fresh start. That’s the way attorney Rachel Kaylie sees it.
“Bankruptcy laws were enacted to protect everyone because no one is immune from life’s unexpected and unfortunate circumstances,” she says.
Kaylie is a bankruptcy and personal injury attorney who believes in treating all of her clients with respect and dignity.
“I know that many who see me are going through a difficult time” she says. Some have already tried to navigate the endless red tape that brings them to her in the first place, and the last thing they want to hear is that someone will take a message. It’s why Kaylie offers personal service, picking up the telephone herself so that clients reach her directly.
Bankruptcy has little to do with the economy. Instead, people experience economic hardship for a variety of reasons It can because they or their loved ones have medical issues. It can also be because they have been laid off from work, or are getting a divorce. Whatever the situation may be, Kaylie handles each client’s bankruptcy filing with compassion, discussing whether a Chapter 7 liquidation or a Chapter 13 repayment plan is best. She brings 23 years of experience and advice to the table.
Likewise, Kaylie handles all aspects of personal injury matters, resolving hundreds of cases that total millions of dollars.She deals with motor vehicle accidents; accidents that are the results of falls; construction and labor accidents; wrongful death matters; and liability issues that occur on premises. Although the majority of these cases are settled before they go to court, clients can take comfort in knowing that Kaylie is an experienced trial attorney. She takes into consideration that personal injury clients suffer from pain, but they must also deal with many other problems that arise because they can’t work — their income may be compromised; their mobility may be limited; and they can become socially isolated because they do not have the active lifestyles they once enjoyed. The loss of independence is a big burden to handle. The Law Offices of Rachel Kaylie P.C. is here to help navigate every difficult step.

She earned her bachelor’s degree in 1990 from Brandeis University, with a major in political science and a minor in Spanish. She is a member of the Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and a member of the Brandeis University Alumni Association, an organization that promotes networking opportunities among its members.
Kaylie serves as a mentor to law school students and younger attorneys.
Her background includes working at a private practice in Manhattan, and also as a law guardian for children in Brooklyn’s Family Court. She opened this new Sheepshead Bay practice in October.
