Sutton Booker is proud to announce Rachel Jennings has been promoted to a Partner in the firm.
Rachel represents corporate and individual clients in first- and third-party insurance claims, wrongful death claims, and premises liability claims. Rachel practices before federal and state courts and has experience in handling all stages of litigation from claim evaluation through trial and post-trial disputes for a wide range of clients, including retail, restaurant and hospitality entities, utility companies and car dealerships. Rachel’s practice also includes auto liability defense.
In her time at Sutton Booker, Rachel successfully defended a retailer in an admitted liability case where the plaintiff sought over $1,000,000 in past economic losses and the jury awarded only $30,157.57 in past losses and $0 for noneconomic losses or physical impairment. Rachel also obtained summary judgment on behalf of an insurer where the plaintiff alleged a claim pursuant to C.R.S. § 10-3-1115/1116. The Court in that case held that the Plaintiff’s claim was fairly debatable, and in the context of a fairly debatable claim, a treating provider’s failure to provide records to the insurer did not show unreasonable delay or denial of benefits by the insurer.
In addition to her representative practice, Rachel is actively involved in efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in the Colorado legal community and holds leadership positions in various legal groups. Rachel is the Co-Chair of NAWLMoms for the National Association of Women Lawyers and Secretary for the Emerging Leaders Initiative with the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms.
Prior to joining Sutton Booker, P.C., Rachel was an associate with a Denver firm that specializes in insurance defense. Rachel earned her undergraduate degree from Northeastern University and her law degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.
