The law firm of Triplett Woolf Garrettson, LLC is pleased to announce Rachael Pirner has been named a Fellow of the Academy of Adoption and Assisted Reproduction Attorneys (“AAAA”). 

AAAA provides a credentialed presence in the law of family formation and is the largest professional organization of its type dedicated to advancing the security of children through permanent adoption, the protection of children through safe and secure foster care with appropriate permanency planning, and the recognition of intended parents as legal parents for those using modern technology to build families through assisted reproductive technology.

Located around the globe – including the United States, Canada, Australia, Argentina, Israel and the United Kingdom – Fellows of AAAA are considered legal thought leaders and are a highly‑vetted, experienced group. AAAA Fellows like Rachael Pirner use best legal practices and have helped thousands of clients through their family building journey.

Rachael has over practiced 25 years in the areas of civil, trust and probate litigation involving adoption and probate matters. She has also practiced in the area of assisted reproductive technology for the past 10 years, representing clients in contract matters and establishing parental rights. Rachael received Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory’s highest “AV” rating for lawyers. She has served as President of the Kansas Bar Association, after serving two terms as District Seven Governor to the KBA Board of Governors.

An active member of the Wichita Bar Association, Rachael has served in the areas of Legislative, Public Relations, Probate (Chair), Diversity, Unauthorized Practice of Law, and Nominating Committees.
