Classy and Diligent Representation
I was fortunate enough to have Rebecca as an attorney for a few years. She represented my family with care and respect, particularly once she understood the dynamics of the situation well enough to see clearly through what was often a mire of lies and deception by the opposing council and their client. I am thankful for Rebecca's legal support through the most difficult of times, and recommend her expertise wholeheartedly to anyone who would like to be represented by an attorney who consistently acts in an upright manner. If your case is about parental rights, you can rest assured that Rebecca will consistently place the best interest of the child(ren) first, and if you are like me, that will put your mind at ease when leaning on her council.

Highly recommend
I was referred to Rebecca by a friend who hired her to assist with divorce and child custody matters. My friend could not say enough about how Rebecca made the entire process so much easier for her and in her words "Rebecca made me stronger and helped me have the backbone to stand up for myself". I took my friend's recommendation and now have worked with Rebecca on two separate occasions to make modifications to my parenting plan and custody agreement. Rebecca is professional, sharp and always made me feel as though she truly was on my side and cared about doing right by my children and I. I can't imagine going through the process without her by my side and would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking counsel on family matters.

Highly recommend
Rebecca has worked with me for several years with my case! During a time in my life I felt hopeless and lost she was always there to help guide and steer me in the right direction! She made me feel like she cared deeply for my situation and I was not alone in the fight. I couldn't be more grateful for all the hard work and time she dedicated to my case. Highly recommend her to anyone and will certainly use her services in the future again if need be. You are in good hands!!

Courteous, Knowlegable and Effective
I hired Rebecca for my Divorce. She heard and understood my Challenges for the Divorce and took effective measures to deescalate and resolve it amicably but the other party wont listen. Rebecca was professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I recommend her.

Child Custody and Divorce Lawyer
Rebecca was referred to me by two separate previous clients of hers. I went in there already feeling confident in her ability and was not disappointed in this case. It was a sensitive and difficult matter for me to address and Rebecca was professional, compassionate, and extremely knowledgeable. We were successful in the end and I would highly recommend Rebecca Baer if anyone is struggling to protect and safeguard their children's well being.

Excellent Attorney
Rebecca represented me in my divorce case. She was supportive, thorough and gave every attention to detail throughout the entire process. She really helps clients by taking an educational approach so that they know all of their options. I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca.

Best choice we made was to hire Rebecca!
Our step-parent adoption was a tricky situation. Rebecca was there every step of the way providing valuable guidance, advice and always answering every question with verified facts, clear mind and professional yet friendly responses. We met with her FAR in advance of when we finally decided to proceed and her patience and explaining of the process was superb! I would highly recommend her!!!!!!

Highly recommend!!
Rebecca helped me through a difficult divorce and many difficult child custody factors. She was not just a lawyer but also a huge support and I would not have made it through the last year without her! She dealt with difficult opposing counsel with grace and humor. The documents drawn up for separation, custody, and divorce were perfectly worded and covered all the legal bases that I didn't even know I needed to think of. She was quick to respond to any help or advice I needed and was with me every step of the way. I simply cannot recommend Rebecca enough!

My report concerning Rebecca, top notch attorney!
I'm a resident of Wyoming and Rebecca came highly recommended for representing me in Colorado as my former wife filed for divorce there. She did an excellent job for me and I highly recommend her! Her knowledge of divorce law is excellent, and also her inter personal shills are off the charts! During the negotiations my former wife's attorney withdrew from the case and Rebecca continued with dealings between us and acted as mediator. I feel that it was mostly due to her personal skills that helped us settle out of court! Thank you so much!!

Compassionate and Thorough
I hired Rebecca for my child custody case. We knew it was going to be difficult from the beginning as my daughter's father was very uncooperative. Rebecca made a tough situation so much better. She was on top of everything and made sure everything was done on time and done thoroughly and professionally. She was very compassionate but tough, always with my daughter's best interest in mind. I got exactly what I was hoping for and I believe I have Rebecca to thank for that.

Wonderful Family Law Lawyer!
Rebecca Baer is an honest and trustworthy lawyer who I would recommend to family, friends and even strangers. Rebecca and her team are a pleasure to work with. Rebecca gained my trust and respect quickly after meeting her. I asked questions (lots of questions), she answered. Divorce is never easy, and gets even more complicated when large assets, trusts and children are involved. Rebecca understood my situation and provided clear guidance and reasonable expectation every step of the divorce process. She took time to know me as a person, as a parent, and my children’s best interests. Rebecca is compassionate yet tough, and gets the job done. My divorce was settled within a few months, which would have never been possible without her. Thank you Rebecca, I really appreciate you !

The Best Family Lawyer with Empathy and Gets the Job Done!
Baer is a well versed and educated lawyer. She understands the legal systems and advocates for children's best interests. I was looking for a lawyer who was empathic, articulate, a great listener, and effective with time. Baer had all of these attributes and more. She was able to advocate and mediate for my family needs and navigate a peaceful mediation with the other party. Five years later, all parties are thriving and well. I attribute this to her work and my choice in choosing her. She has all the "right stuff"!

Wonderful experience with Rebecca and her firm!
Rebecca and her staff handled our adoption proceeding. We were worried that the process would be highly stressful, complicated and expensive. After meeting with Rebecca, all of our questions and concerns were addressed and our fears faded away. Our case was handled efficiently. The paperwork was completed immediately. Both the time line and cost were in keeping with the original estimate. We received regular communications about status on our proceeding and anytime we reached out to her we received responses right away. We honestly had a great experience, have no complaints and got the outcome we hoped for. We would absolutely recommend her services and would use her again if ever needed.

Rebecca had the expertise in family law that I needed!
Rebecca was a blessing when I felt I was in a hopeless situation. I was involved in a very high conflict post decree modification to parenting time and decision making. There were serious safety concerns for my children at the time I retained Rebecca and I never doubted her commitment to my children and myself. She is a well composed, kind and caring person but make no mistake that she can hold her own. Rebecca was assertive, direct and proactive. I always felt well informed as to what was happening with my case, Rebecca and her paralegal always promptly returned phone calls and emails. I cannot be more thankful that I found such great representation in such a difficult period. I would refer Rebecca and her team to any of my friends, family or acquaintances with the full confidence that they would get the same level of superior service I have received.

I'm grateful for her help! Rebecca is a master at what she does!
Rebecca Baer is an amazing lawyer! I was very fortunate to have found her when I did. Though Rebecca was working alongside David Littman on our case, I primarily communicated with her; Rebecca was always quick to respond, listen, and help. She is detail oriented and organized. With her help the court vacated a contempt hearing and dismissed all charges against me. Furthermore, Rebecca helped transfer my case to another state, simultaneously defending me from an obsessive and erratic ex-husband. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of legal help with divorce, family, and child custody issues.

Compassionate yet tough; exactly what we needed!
Rebecca and her team handled our family's adoption case in July of 2015 . As it turned out, it was a very complicated case that involved some serious strategy and planning as we went along. Rebecca was everything we expected and more. She and her team kept us in the loop with exceptional communication. She prepared and followed through on all of the legal goings on with the skill of an experienced professional. And, when the big day arrived, my wife and I felt confident that she would be able to handle anything that came our way. With Rebecca's help, our dream of a new family finally became a reality. I highly recommend Rebecca to anyone in need of family law services.

Most compassionate in difficult situations
Rebecca is amazing! I went though a very high conflict divorce, including custody issues. There were MANY different problems that arose during the course of the proceedings, but Rebecca remained not only a sounding board, but also a rational, highly professional, respectable attorney. She listened, provided a variety of options, and listened whole-heartedly to help provide the best possible outcome. Not only was it more than I expected, but she will forever be recommended by me to ANY family needing help from things that are out of their control. She remains firm, and does a very well-thought out presentation when dealing with confrontational other attorneys. I would highly recommend her to anyone! I can not say enough good things about her!

Great experience in a bad situation
I hired Rebecca to make changes to my parenting plan that was poorly done due to lack of representation in my final divorce hearing. My ex was taking advantage of the lack of clarity, detail and a parenting schedule. Rebecca was very direct, stern and played hard ball. She kept me informed every step of the way. She fought hard for everything that was in the best interest of my daughter and me. She was available everytime I needed her and had a question or concern. She was great to work with. I trusted her and that was a major thing because my daughters safety was a huge concern. I was very happy with the outcome of everything and happy I hired Rebecca.
