From Military Discipline to Legal Acumen

Rachel’s early life decision to join the military, a path not traditionally taken in her family, set the stage for a life of unexpected turns and bold choices. Her military experience, though initially unplanned, shaped her with discipline and self-awareness, which later became vital in her legal career.

Transitioning to Law: A Call to Serve and Lead

After her military tenure, Rachel embarked on a journey in law, a field familiar to her through her family. Yet, her approach to practicing law was anything but traditional. Driven by a desire to redefine legal practice, she bravely set up her own firm, King Law. This decision was fueled by a commitment to balance her professional aspirations with her role as a mother and a wife.

Building King Law: A Blend of Passion and Pragmatism

Rachel’s approach to growing her law firm was both strategic and personal. She initially handled all aspects of her firm before making crucial hires. Her first hires were pivotal, marking the beginning of the firm’s expansion. However, learning from experiences, she emphasizes the importance of maintaining professional boundaries in workplace relationships.

Rachel shares her unique approach to litigation, emphasizing the ‘Big Five’ resources – facts, money, time, goals, and emotional stamina. She advocates for a dynamic reassessment of these factors throughout the litigation process, ensuring strategies align with clients’ evolving needs.

Vision for the Future: Expanding Expertise and Influence

Looking ahead, Rachel aims to refine her litigation skills and solidify her status as an expert in her field. Her goal is to demonstrate how her ‘Big Five’ approach can not only benefit clients but also enhance the practice of law itself.

Scott has an entrepreneurial spirit that’s been burning since his teenage years. Back then, he was mowing lawns, managing paper routes, and selling greeting cards door to door – always finding different ways to put some cash in his pocket! After graduating college, Scott had a successful career in sales and operations leadership, but his desire to be a business owner was never far from his heart. Seven years ago, he and his wife, Jenn, took the plunge and started their own business. Like many others, they spent all their time on the struggle bus – dealing with cash flow, payroll, and questioning whether their doors could even stay open. Ultimately, they persevered and learned some incredibly valuable lessons along the way.

Now, Scott is dedicated to helping others avoid the pitfalls he faced, fulfilling his purpose as a coach, and helping owners and teams achieve their dreams. When he’s not guiding businesses toward success, Scott can be found hitting the gym, on the golf course, or racking up miles on his Peloton.
