Offit Kurman P.A.
Before earning her law degree at Boston College Law School, Rachel Mech was captain of the women’s lacrosse team at Georgetown University, where she earned an award for academic excellence from the McDonough School of Business and a Master of Professional Studies in Corporate Communications, and studied law at King’s College, in London.
Before joining Offit Kurman’s Baltimore office, where she represents family and business clients in domestic and international civil litigation, she co-founded ProVentures, a Washington-based sports and entertainment agency.
“My personal motto is: ‘It’s never crowded on the extra mile’,” Mech said. “I believe that if you are the most prepared person in the room, and that if you outwork your competition, you can find success even in defeat.
“Recently, I argued in the Court of Special Appeals in front of a hot bench,” she said. “I lost the argument, which asked the appellate court to change its interpretation of a statute, but I was meticulously prepared and was able to leave the oral arguments without regrets.
“That peace of mind is the most that a litigator can ask for and the best result they can give a client.”
Mech is secretary of the board of directors for Fit Kids Inc., a nonprofit that provides structured physical fitness activities to underserved youths and a former adjunct instructor at Georgetown University.
“I’m born and raised in Baltimore and am very happy to be living, working, and raising a family here,” Mech said. “It is a true honor to receive this award from The Daily Record and to assist the residents of our community.”
