Meet Racheal Gilbert

NIK_0304_web2Racheal Gilbert brings fifteen years of paralegal experience to DeFusco Law, P.L.C.  She has worked with Andrew DeFusco since 2010 and has extensive knowledge on the medical-legal issues involved in personal injury and wrongful death matters.  Racheal is especially empathetic of the difficulties our clients face as they attempt to get their lives back in order.  She works very closely with our clients, from the initial consultation until case resolution, and takes tremendous pride in ensuring that our clients are treated with the level of personal service and attention they deserve.  Racheal is happily married and the mother to four children.


While our practice is located in Scottsdale, we represent clients throughout the state of Arizona and nationwide who have suffered loss here in Arizona as a result of the negligent or wrongful conduct of others.  We maintain a low-­volume practice and do not charge a fee for an initial consultation. Our advanced videoconferencing capabilities allow us to interact face­-to-­face with clients located in the more remote areas of Arizona and around the world.

Because we maintain a referral-­based low-­volume practice and strive to provide a high level of personal service, we typically accept cases that involve significant damages. If it appears that we cannot assist, where appropriate we will provide a complimentary referral to other attorneys.
