Fortified Elder Law
Rachel Fortenberry opened her own law firm, Fortified Elder Law, in October, 2022. Prior to this new venture, Rachel held court (ha) as the Elder Law specialist at 417 Business & Elder Law for two-plus years. Rachel specializes in protecting elderly clients’ life savings from being completely taken by the nursing home and the state. She also helps families through the confusing probate process after a loved one has passed and helps other clients ensure their affairs are in order and taken care of if the unexpected should happen. Talking about death, end of life planning, and nursing homes isn’t fun or comfortable, but Rachel strives to make the process easier by ensuring every client feels valued and heard.
Rachel is active in the Springfield area community through the Junior League of Springfield, and volunteering annually with the Counsel of Churches’ Crosslines Thanksgiving food distributions and Christmas toy distributions. In her spare time, Rachel enjoys catching the latest flick at the Alamo Drafthouse, and camping here in the Ozarks. Rachel is married to her best friend, Brad, a computer programmer who creates mobile and desktop games.
