The best there is when dealing with the worst situation
After a couple years, I started feeling like my first lawyer was letting me be taken advantage of. I asked around for some recommendations and that's how I found Rebecca. Rebecca helped me with a number of issues that came up regarding my ex-wife and my child. I can not recommend her strongly enough if you are going through a divorce. Her calm, confident demeanor kept me focused on my goals and her knowledge about the process and the people involved guided all my decisions to be more effective. She always took the time to answer my "what if..." questions when I was confused or concerned. Most importantly, she made me feel like I always had someone in my corner who would fight for me. During a process that made me feel nervous and insecure, I always knew that I could count on her to stand up for me.

Professional and Efficient
Rebecca is very a very knowledgeable attorney. We had a difficult situation and she was able to guide me through with ease. She also had to get a little creative with our case which helped tremendously. She always kept my budget in mind when counseling me and has a very calm demeanor about her which kept me calm too. I would definitely recommend her to anyone going through a divorce.
