Michael Rothacker graduated a year early with his B.S. in political science from Campbellsville University in 2014 after earning the William E. Bennet award for top student in his major. He went on to receive his Juris Doctorate a semester early from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 2019. During law school, Michael was a Trial Advocacy Board member with a top five score for the tryout competition, and he was selected as the Best Oral Advocate for the Clay Writing Club. Additionally, Michael worked for Judge Robert Johnson on the Kentucky Court of Appeals and for Richard Bottoms, the Commonwealth Attorney for the 50th Judicial District.  Most recently, Michael worked at the firm Circeo Fannin where he gained valuable knowledge in nursing home neglect and abuse litigation.

In between his time in undergraduate and law school, Michael worked for U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell and the Kentucky State Legislature. Recently, during the COVID-19 health crisis, he was instrumental in getting language inserted in the judicial budget to toll the statute of limitations for causes of action in Kentucky by contacting Representative Jason Nemes from Louisville.
