Very skilled and helpful lawyer
Ms. Legrand represented me in a federal criminal investigation of an intellectual property matter that unexpectedly lasted over five years. Throughout she was always a valued asset, thoughtful and easy to work with. I am very grateful I went through this legal situation with her skill and advice as my defense lawyer. I could not recommend her more highly.

Rebecca Legrand Review by Client
Ms. Legrand provided excellent legal representation involving a complicated contract dispute between an individual (her client) and a corporation in Federal Court. The case proceeded to within weeks of a trial, included extensive discovery, depositions, motions and filings. Ms. Legrand reviewed and analyzed many years of corporate tax returns to identify previously unknown issues which were central to resolving the case favorably. Ms. Legrand was easy to work with, informative and supportive. She was energetic and effective in her representation of me. Her billings were transparent, honest and cost-effective. In the end, she engineered a favorable settlement which avoided the rigors of a trial.

VERY good. Extraordinary competence and service
I hired Ms. Legrand to negotiate a settlement on my behalf. She was fantastic and not because of the result. Very thoughtful, process driven, fact seeking, super smart. She gave balanced and helpful advice when asked. She was always to the point and was very strategic in her thinking and process. I highly recommend her.

Government Agency Interview - Investigation
I wanted a professional attorney to oversee questioning by a government agency and protect my interest in the investigation. Ms. Legrand was always available by email, by phone or in-person and has responded to all of my requests or questions. I highly recommend her legal services.

Smart and tough
+ Supportive attorney who does thorough research to understand the nuance of the law and how it is being shaped + Didn't lose her endurance even over a multi-year case + Definitely not part of the "boys club" fraternity of attorneys who get along well with each other at the expense of their clients

"Rebecca is extremely professional, thorough and committed to each of her clients. She is sharp, analyzing legal issues well, and shows empathy and respect. I completely endorse her work!"
Litigation Attorney | Mar 02
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I had the privilege of trying a jury trial to verdict with Rebecca last year. She has great trial-lawyer instincts and did impressive work in front of the jury. This is not true of all lawyers with a resume like Rebecca's. There are many smart lawyers who don't have the skill set to speak persuasively to a jury. Likewise, there are many impressive trial lawyers who lack the skills to write a persuasive brief in a complicated case. Rebecca is the rare breed who can to do both."
