Rachel M. Noorthoek is a personal injury attorney with fourteen years of litigation experience. Rachel was born and raised on the Southside of Chicago. She attended college at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, and graduated with a degree in English. Rachel returned home to Chicago to earn her law degree at DePaul College of Law. She was a member of the Moot Court Appellate team at DePaul, and competed nationally. While Rachel was attending law school, her brother was injured on the job while working as an ironworker. Rachel clerked for the law firm that represented her brother, and that was the beginning of her career representing those injured as a result of the negligence of others. She saw firsthand how an injury can change someone’s life, and knew that this was the type of law she wanted to practice.

Rachel continued to represent injured people for the following four years, getting invaluable experience as a plaintiff’s attorney. She handled every facet of a case, and tried multiple cases to verdict during this time. After representing injured people for four years, Rachel switched sides and began work as an insurance defense attorney. This experience was priceless to Rachel as she was able to see how insurance companies truly evaluated claims.

In 2015 Rachel and her husband moved to North Carolina, and at that time she made the decision to once again represent injured people. Since her move to North Carolina, Rachel has dedicated her work to helping injured people get the justice they deserve. She handles multiple types of personal injury claims including motor vehicle collisions, dog bites, and premises liability claims. She has tried multiple cases to verdict and is not afraid to fight for her clients in court to get them the justice they deserve. Rachel has also argued before the North Carolina Court of Appeals.

In addition to North Carolina, Rachel was recently licensed in South Carolina in 2019. She is admitted to practice in the State of Illinois, the Northern District of Illinois, all State courts in North Carolina, all federal courts in North Carolina, and all state courts in South Carolina. She is a member of the North Carolina Bar Association, the Mecklenburg County Bar Association, the North Carolina Advocates for Justice, the South Carolina Bar Association, and the South Carolina Association for Justice.

Rachel and her husband Scott have one son. Rachel and her family enjoy trips to the beach and the mountains, boating, and cheering for the Panthers.
