Rachel D. Stahle

Awarded, up and coming trial attorney

Attorney Rachel Stahle, a nursing home abuse & neglect lawyer with the Kansas City law firm Dollar Burns & Becker
Rachel Stahle, partner, is an accomplished attorney who has significant experience litigating cases involving personal injury, nursing home neglect, medical negligence, and sexual assault and abuse. Her unique combination of tenacity and kindness help her obtain impressive results for her clients while assuring them their concerns are being heard. “I make it a priority to thoroughly discuss each case with my clients, no matter how long or how many times it takes, to understand both what happened and how to keep it from happening again.” Rachel’s experience allows her to accurately evaluate each case while also anticipating the opposing side’s next move, both of which are crucial to her success.

Since 2015, Rachel has been recognized as a Missouri/Kansas Super Lawyer “Rising Star” by Law & Politics. In 2014, she was recognized as an “Up & Coming Lawyer” by Missouri Lawyers Media. The National Trial Lawyers selected Rachel as a member of the 2017 "Top 40 Under 40." In addition to her trial experience, Rachel has extensive experience in depositions and mediation. She is an accomplished brief writer and is active in her legal community.

Rachel earned her Juris Doctor at the University of Kansas School of Law. While studying there, she was elected articles editor for the Kansas Law Review. She also interned with the Paul E. Wilson Defender Project and participated in the Deposition Skills Workshop and Dean’s Fellows Program. Before joining Dollar, Burns & Becker, Rachel was a partner with Franke Schultz & Mullen, P.C., in Kansas City.
