About Rebecca

Learn Rebecca’s areas of practice.

As partner at Wolfenson & Ashkenazi P.C., my current practice focuses on Real Estate matters, Wills, Trusts, and Estates, as well as Bankruptcy. Prior to joining the firm, I served as General Counsel to a commercial and industrial real estate company, where I handled the management and legal side of leasing and acquisitions, as well as all compliance matters. Prior to that, I represented residential clients and sponsor sellers at Herrick, Feinstein LLP, as well as earned numerous pro bono awards, including the prestigious 2018 Milton Mollen Pro Bono Award. I started my career in Real Estate at a small firm and saw firsthand the importance of the family-like atmosphere when representing clients who are dealing with important life transactions and matters. For this reason, it was important for me to join Andrew Wolfenson at his firm so that I could continue to cultivate my client relationships and advance her practice. Prior to my work in Real Estate, my practice focused on representing abandoned, abused, and neglected children, as well as working with high net worth matrimonial actions.

I assist ProjectKIND, as a legal advisor on a pro bono basis. In addition to my daily work schedule and pro bono work, I have been working with Urban Dance League, Inc. since 2013 in both a legal capacity and a board member style role; providing guidance and direction for new ideas and opportunities. Urban Dance League not only creates a platform for dancers but also creates programs and safe spaces for children which is extremely important to me.

At Franklin and Marshall College, I was co-founder of S.I.S.T.E.R.S (Sophisticated, Intelligent, Sisters, Teaching, Excellence, Responsibility, and Success), and I'm proud that the organization has grown to more than 10x the size since its inception. S.I.S.T.E.R.S is an organization that promotes intelligence, empowerment, and unity among women and I'm still involved with current and alumni members.

I look forward to continuing to provide my clients with the highest level of service.

Excellent Service and Communication
Rebecca and her team provided me with an excellent service in my two real estate transactions. I needed to close both of them during a specific period of time and her expert advice was crucial to achieve it. Communication was always great either by phone or email. I highly recommend her.

Home seller
We worked with partner Rebecca Ashkenazi and her paralegal Diana to close on the home we sold in Montclair, NJ in June 2023. Both of them could not have been better to work with -- always highly responsive (i.e., fast), helpful, professional and courteous in every way. They even found us a significant tax savings we were unaware of... The closing process was simple, easy and efficient. We couldn't have nicer things to say about this small but excellent law firm.

Rebecca and Diana made everything from the start to finish of our home buying process a smooth and pleasant experience. Working hand and hand with our realtor, they worked tirelessly and diligently to get everything done in a timely manner for us. Our situation was unique as we were up against the clock with coordinating selling & buying a property simultaneously with a fast approaching u&a deadline, as well as expiration of our previous rental agreement. These ladies made it all happen with open communication and keeping us in the loop throughout it all. We are very happy in our new home! Thank you!

Great lawyer for buying your first home!
Rebecca and the team (Diana and Andrew) answered all our questions quickly and guided us through the process. They worked closely with our real estate agent and when our interest rate lock was about to expire, they worked hard to move up the closing date and make sure all the closing docs were in order. Can't thank them enough!

Responsive and Effective
My wife and I just recently purchased our first home. Rebecca and her team answered every question from end-to-end, and represented us very well, through a challenging negotiation process. She and Diana, her Legal Assistant, were on top of everything, and really helped reduce the stress of what would have been a more difficult experience. I would highly recommend working with Rebecca Ashkenazi and her fantastic office!

Wire to Wire Excellence - Closing from 300 miles away!
Rebecca and Diana provided my family top tier representation throughout the process of purchasing our home. Buying in NJ while living in Massachusetts was an incredibly daunting task. Thankfully we were referred to Rebecca and team. They made the 300+ miles of separation feel a whole lot smaller. Throughout our 30 day close we always felt like we were on schedule, aware of our status, and in incredibly capable hands. Right down to the remote closing table, Rebecca and Diana were a phone call or email away. We highly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for a veteran to have in your corner while transacting in Real Estate, especially in today's market.
