Rebecca is an amazing trial attorney. I have known her for years and worked with her in the Public Defender's Office. She is a zealous advocate and truly cares about her clients. She goes above and beyond for clients and her success in the courtroom proves it. Any client would be lucky to have her as an attorney.

I have worked with Rebecca when she was opposing counsel in a complicated divorce case. She was a pleasure to work with and successfully struck a balance between strongly advocating for her client and remaining professional and courteous at all times with me. It was a pleasure.
