About me

Rebecca Hicks represents owners, contractors, architects and suppliers in a broad range of construction related matters.  She assists clients with legal issues related to all types of projects from private commercial, to state and federal government projects. Rebecca's breadth of experience provides an understanding of the competing interests on the job site, so that contract terms can be tailored to the specific needs of the client.  Rebecca assists clients in drafting, negotiating and interpreting terms of construction contracts, and related contract documents, for public and private projects.  This can include development of customized contract forms, or working with common construction form contracts including AIA and Consensus Docs. 


Rebecca litigates and arbitrates construction claims involving payment disputes, scheduling disputes and delays, change order disputes, and construction defect claims.  Rebecca also aids clients in perfecting or disputing mechanics' lien claims and federal and state payment bond claims.  Rebecca writes and speaks on a variety of construction related topics for various trade organizations and training programs.


Rebecca represents financial institutions and other creditors in lawsuits based on promissory notes, guarantees and unpaid accounts.  On a regular basis, she obtains judgments for creditor clients without trial, and is able to overcome most common debtor defenses, including usury claims.  Rebecca also counsels creditor clients to ensure compliance with federal and state debt collection regulations before litigation.


Rebecca also represents commercial landlords in lease related litigation, including breach of lease, lease interpretation and forcible detainer actions.


Rebecca has significant experience in post-judgment collection proceedings, including garnishments, turnover actions and post-judgment depositions.  She works with judgment creditors to identify hidden assets and pursue unconventional legal theories to increase collectability.
