Welcome to Rack & Moccia


Welcome to our website, which we strive to update with legal news and law firm happenings for the benefit of our clients, colleagues, and friends. We recently announced the association of Ashley Etheridge Nimitz, who is in her fifth year of a growing practice in trust and estate litigation.  Since then, Karen A. Logan has joined our paralegal team, bringing her years of experience with trust departments and prestigious law firms to us in the administration of trusts and estates.


While serving as Executive Assistant to Mr. Rack, Nicki Tarn also excelled at all things related to administration and marketing for the Firm; deservedly, then, she was recently named Director of Administration and Marketing for the Firm.  After a patient and careful search for her replacement, Melissa A. Hunter accepted the offer to join us as Executive Assistant to Mr. Rack.  Please welcome our newest members of the Rack & Moccia team.
