RACHEL DALTON DEARMOND is licensed in both Kentucky and Indiana. Rachel represents clients in matters of complex civil litigation and has successfully defended healthcare providers and other individuals in high risk cases through trial by jury and appellate practice. Her primary areas of practice include professional negligence defense involving healthcare providers and other professionals, long term care and nursing facilities, as well as the defense of property and casualty claims. Additionally, she represents medical professionals in matters before professional licensure boards in Kentucky and Indiana. Rachel was influential in changing the preferred venue requirements in Indiana as they relate to medical corporations. Rachel’s work to change the preferred venue requirements in Indiana allows for medical corporations to ensure that cases filed against them will be heard by a jury of their peers from their community, as opposed to a county in which they are not located.

Outside of the office, Rachel enjoys being outdoors, cheering on the University of Louisville Cardinals, and spending time with family and friends. She particularly enjoys going on adventures with her husband and their chocolate lab, Booker.
