Rachel Wetta is a Foulston Siefkin litigation partner with an active trial practice who has led and assisted multiple jury and bench trials in both state and federal court. A member of the firm’s litigation practice group, Rachel has argued in front of the Kansas Supreme Court, Kansas Court of Appeals, and Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. Her regular practice areas include employment litigation, contract disputes, creditors’ rights, torts, and insurance defense. She also represents clients before various regulatory agencies, including the Kansas State Farm Service Agency and the Kansas State Board of Nursing.
Rachel looks for outcomes that are in her clients’ best interests, which doesn’t always lead to the courtroom. That may mean mediation and other types of alternative dispute resolution to protect her clients from the risks of going to trial.
Rachel was recognized by Benchmark Litigation as a Labor and Employment Star, named to Benchmark’s Under 40 Hotlist in 2017, and selected to be included in the Missouri & Kansas Super Lawyers Rising Stars list. She is an active member of the state and local bars, as well as the Kansas Association of Defense Counsel and the Defense Research Institute.
Active in the community as well as the legal profession, Rachel serves on the boards of both the Wichita Area Sexual Assault Center and KPTS Channel 8. Rachel is an Iowa native who moved to Wichita after graduating from the University of Iowa College of Law and happily started putting down roots. She and her husband, Trent, have two young children. Rachel is an avid baker who spends her weekends making cupcakes, cheesecakes, pies, baguettes, sourdough bread, cookies, and anything else that looks tasty and sounds challenging.
