Rachel's unique experiences from The Citadel and her Air Force career provide her with the ability to thrive in helping clients through stressful situations. Her advanced collaborative training boosts chances for success for her clients in opening the door to a multitude of problem solving solutions.
While a cadet at The Citadel, the military college of South Carolina, Mrs. Hamrick determined she wanted to go into the service. First, she wanted to enter the military for patriotism, and, second, because of her strong desire to give back. From an early age, she knew that whatever she did in life, she wanted to serve others.
During her time with the United States Air Force, then Captain Rogers decided to follow her dream of entering the legal field. She had a strong desire to serve those around her in a new capacity, but it was still with the same underlying aspiration to help people.
Rachel's parents were very influential in her decision to pursue a career in the law. Her father was a member of the clergy and her mother was an addictions counselor. From an early age, she witnessed the impact a job choice could have not just in her own life, but in the lives of other men, women, and children who are experiencing challenging times.
Having now been in the field of family law over five years, Rachel is familiar with the difficult dilemma people find themselves in when they come to the office of Tom Bush Law Group. Often, a person is experiencing the most trying and emotional time of their life. She works hard for her clients, each with a different set of goals, and she is capable of any challenge, whether it be litigation, a collaborative journey, or fulfilling a client's desire for settlement. It is her desire to make the process a little easier for each individual she serves. Family law is not always easy, but there is a path to finding peace again, with the right tools.
Rachel, like everyone, has experienced her own trials and tribulations, but her particular skill set, attributed to her service in the military and during deployments, has sharpened her ability to deal with stressful situations using a thoughtful and targeted approach. Rachel's goal when working with clients is to help them resolve their family law issue so they can focus on growing stronger individually for the benefit of themselves and their family.
