About Rebecca

Learn Rebecca’s areas of practice.

We take pride in being considered a "small" firm.

Why? Because bigger is not always better.

 

This is especially true when it comes to legal representation.

 

Why are small firms better?

Because in a small pond, there are no small fish. At a small firm each and every client gets the personal attention that they need and deserve. Having the ability to cater to each and every client's individual needs is what sets small firms, like ours, apart.

 

Short on time? We can meet during your lunch break at the location of your choice.

 

Can't find a sitter? We can meet at a location best suited for children so that your attention is fully focused on the legal matter before you.

 

Best of all, small firms lack the overhead that larger firms tend to carry.

 

What does that mean for you? More money in your pocket. Smaller firms require smaller retainers and bill at a much smaller hourly rate. And because your "legal team" will consist of you and your attorney, you won't incur charges for unnecessary paper shuffling between legal staff and attorneys.

 

Go ahead.

If you determine that we aren't the right firm for you, we'll help you find one that is.

No strings attached.

Time was of the essence!!!
Rebecca was recommended by a friend who felt she could help advise me on my “room rental agreement.” Rebecca went out of her way to accommodate my schedule, listened to my story, my concerns and my full list of questions to understand what was happening. After meeting with me, I felt confident asking her advice, taking her advice and following through with legal documents.

Highly Recommended
I was recently in a situation where I was in the process of purchasing a new home and my realtor and attorney got me into a sticky situation. I felt that neither one of them had my best interest in mind which is when I decided to reach out to another attorney for a consultation. After some research I came across Attorney Rigdon and couldn’t have been more pleased. She listened to my concerns and was extremely professional and very thorough in her responses and this made me feel at ease. I took her professional advice and was able to get out of a bad situation. I would highly recommend Attorney Rigdon to anyone looking for an attorney!

It's all in the details
I was already divorced but had an issue that was not completely resolved. During my consult with Attorney Rigdon she gave me advice on how to resolve the issue without more court time. I took her advice and it worked perfectly. My only regret is not knowing her before my divorce!

Very Friendly, Super Helpful and Purely Professional!
We had very little experiance with legal matters or lawyers other than a Closing on a home. Moving from a smaller town to a larger one we found our taxes were now much higher. We started to investigate on our own and discovered (through looking in the Tax Assesors' Data Base available on the towns website) that our home was being taxed much higher than other very similar sized properties. Once we determined what the savings would be for us we quickly requested an appointment with our towns Board of Assessment Appeals. We presented numerous examples of other homes in town that were of nearly the same square footage and lot size and yet were taxed much lower than ours. We felt confident at the time we would get a significant adjustment. Perhaps we were too polite and didn't come across angry enough at the hearing because we soon received a letter stating NO significant change would be made. No detailed explanation was given. We felt both disappointed and angry. Our only option was to challenge the Tax Assessors Board of Appeals decision with a lawyer. Rebecca was recommend by coworker and we could not be happier with the knowledge, professionalism and personality Recbecca carries. She made us feel comfortable by explaining what we wanted to do was pretty common and we just needed to file the proper paperwork with the court. Rebecca helped us smoothly navigate through this process and we were very happy with the end result. After our experience we always recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for help with legal issues.

Would recommend to friends and family
Divorce is never easy, but, Rebecca took much of the legal pain away and made my divorce as painless as possible. She was always there when I had questions and never made me feel like I was asking dumb questions. Six months after finalizing my case, I'm still extremely happy with the service offered by Rebecca.

An attorney I would highly recommend
Rebecca was a great asset to me in regards to my child custody case. Whether it be in person or via phone, she was attentive and very accommodating in regards to time given to discuss my issues. I never felt rushed. Having Rebecca in my corner was exactly what I needed, to get what is in the best interest of my minor child. She was very knowledgeable when it came down to the options I had with my case and always pointed me in the right direction. Rebecca is experienced, perceptive, understanding and professional. I would definitely use her services again.

Great to work with, very reliable!
Rebecca did a great job for me! Very professional and got me all the answers, step by step! I owned a condo before, but there a few different things when closing on a house, and she made me comfortable and took care of everything that needed to be done, as well as guided me to make it as smooth as possible!

real estate closing
Rebecca Rigdon handled a closing for us on a rental property we recently sold. We found her to be thorough and knowledgeable re: the issues involved, and very helpful in covering any concern which could ultimately arise. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone I know involved in a real estate purchase or sale.

Very happy with service!
Very friendly and did a great job keeping me up to date, etc. Knowledgeable and did the right research to get more answers. Was fair and was to the point on everything from time, expenses, and giving different options to go with. I appreciate all the Attorney Rigdon did for me!

HIGHLY Recommended to anyone in need of an attorney
Rebecca has represented my company in various matters over the course of seven years. She is extremely professional, well versed in the law and offers a very competitive hourly rate. She has made herself available as needed to accommodate my schedule (evenings, weekends, early mornings) and always returns telephone calls within a reasonable amount of time. We are thrilled that Rebecca has decided to start her own practice and hope that anyone looking for an attorney will seriously consider retaining her services.

Scarey nasty
Atty Rigdon distracted and bullied to push illegal dr report into court record. She is, to my observation, aggressive to the point of mental illness. Her actions have caused a great deal of HARM. She is, in my opinion, a person that should be not allowed to pretend to practice law.
