About Rebecca

Learn Rebecca’s areas of practice.

I have practiced consumer debtor bankruptcy for the past 14 years and I am Board Certified in Consumer Bankruptcy Law from the American Board of Certification.  My primary areas of practice are Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy and representation of consumers and creditors in bankruptcy litigation matters. 

I have assisted hundreds of clients with a myriad of financial issues. I not only help individuals with debt relief, but relief from wage garnishments and return of assets seized by creditors. In my Chapter 13 Practice I have helped many homeowners retain their homes, which would have otherwise been lost to foreclosure, and have assisted Small Business owbers reorganize and restructure their business and personal debts which have enable businesses owners to once again operate without the threat of closure.

Rebecca could not be more helpful during our Chapter 7 bankruptcy. She was very knowledgeable and helpful during the entire process. She walked us through the process every step of the way. My wife and I were very pleased with her help and would recommend her services to anyone seeking a very professional advocate.

Excellent!
Rebecca was there for me every step of the way during this time. She was prompt to answer questions day or night and she was very honest. She was polite and genuinely cared.

Rebecca was very helpful, going above & beyond her duties. Due to personal reasons I had to convert from a 13 to a 7. She helped me make the right decisions in my case, even contacting my exes lawyer when it really had nothing to do with the bankruptcy.

Rebecca and her staff were wonderful to work with and they guided me seamlessly through what can often be very emotional and difficult. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing the expert services of a bankruptcy attorney - Rebecca always puts the client first and will make sure you're comfortable the entire way through.
