She also represents whistleblowers under the California Labor Code, federal False Claims Act, and other equivalent state acts. Her work includes all aspects of case management including drafting pleadings and motion papers, arguing motions in state and federal courts, handling written discovery, taking and defending lay and expert depositions, attending mediations, and preparing for trial/arbitration.

Rachel takes pride in advocating on behalf of her clients who have been wronged by their employers' unfair treatment.

Rachel earned her J.D., summa cum laude from Southwestern Law School in 2015. During law school, she was a judicial extern for the Honorable Goodwin Liu at the California Supreme Court, a judicial extern for the Honorable Dean Pregerson at the Central District Court of California, and a legal extern at the ACLU of Southern California.

Before law school, Ms. Lin worked as a paralegal in a civil litigation law firm for 7 years, which experience inspired her to earn a juris doctor degree.
