After earning his undergraduate degree at LSU, where he accepted a tennis scholarship, Chad attended LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center, where he received his Juris Doctor.
In 2009, Chad founded Dudley DeBosier Injury Lawyers, a Louisiana-based personal injury law firm. The firm has grown to include nearly 50 attorneys and more than 170 employees throughout Louisiana.
The same year that he founded Dudley DeBosier, Chad also founded Vista Consulting, a consulting firm dedicated to helping other plaintiff personal injury law firms run more efficiently. Chad worked with more than 100 personal injury law firms for more than a decade, becoming an authority in law firm management and a frequent speaker at national conferences.

Micki began her career as a runner for Hughes & Coleman, a small personal injury law firm in Kentucky, while attending school. For more than 23 years, she was involved in all aspects of marketing and managing at the firm, and she eventually led the firm as their Chief Operating Officer.
Over the course of her tenure with Hughes & Coleman, the firm grew to more than 175 team members with nine offices in four states. Throughout this time, she helped organize the M&L Legal Marketing and Management seminars, conducted financial comparison groups, and helped implement a cutting-edge intake department and operational efficiency system.
Micki’s next step was working with Vista Consulting, where she helped law firms maximize their potential by solving operational obstacles.
In 2018, Micki left Vista to join cj Advertising as President and Chief Brand Strategist, where she oversees all agency accounts.
In 2022, Micki founded Law Firm Xcelerator alongside Chad Dudley.

Scarlett Lester is from Elizabethtown, Kentucky, and she joined the Xcelerator team as a consultant case manager in January 2022. She has an associate’s degree in paralegal studies and has worked as a paralegal since 2011 in six states: Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Colorado, Utah, and Idaho.
She has been fascinated by law and the legal process since she was a child. She originally planned on working in criminal law, but after gaining experience in the personal injury sector, she fell in love with helping injured people gain control over unexpected and difficult situations.
As a paralegal, Scarlett works hard to help reassure victims that it’s their right to seek a fair recovery after accidents and injuries. Her biggest accomplishment in her career is consistently averaging more than $3 million per year in pre-litigation settlements for her clients.
Scarlett has a personal connection with every injured victim she helps because her family has been in their shoes. In March 2021, her husband and daughter were in a serious car accident, and her husband suffered a chronic injury that causes lifelong pain. This life-changing experience helps her empathize with and champion the rights of people who were injured due to no fault of their own.
In her free time, Scarlett enjoys attending as many concerts as humanly possible and spending time with her husband, her daughter, and her dachshund.
Elizabeth has worked for one of the largest personal injury firms since 2013. She received her bachelor’s degree in business management from Louisiana State University in 2016. With 9 years’ experience in law firm marketing and operations management, she is passionate about helping firms operate efficiently while providing great service and results for clients. She also enjoys working with local nonprofits to give back to the community. In her spare time, she enjoys reading and spending time with her family. Elizabeth hopes to be remembered as a loving mother and someone who always tried to pick people up when they were down.
After receiving her undergraduate degree in Government from Wofford College in 2020, Elizabeth immediately started her career at PI advertising and marketing agency, cj Advertising.
Elizabeth’s talent, intellect, and work ethic quickly moved her from Brand Assistant to Executive Assistant to the agency’s president, Micki Love. Because of Elizabeth’s significance to cj’s success and that of the agency’s clients, it made perfect sense why she’d join the Xcelerator team as Executive Assistant in 2022.
Elizabeth loves assisting firms that make such a huge difference in the lives of their community. Her involvement in helping them become more efficient so that they can do more for clients and maximize their capacity for change is a highlight for her.
When she’s not helping firms radically change their office culture and productivity, she enjoys travelling, cooking, and needlepoint.
