Skilled lawyer and mediator
Becky has worked for me on two different occasions. She is a knowledgeable lawyer and her mediation skills are phenomenal. Becky was kind, fair and supportive during negotiations regarding the sale of my business. I recommend Becky without reservation, she is the best!

An amazing Attorney
Becky is personable, kind, honest, generous with her time, fair and professional. I hired Becky in November of 2021 and have been extremely happy. In general, I am always been very leery when hiring an attorney - I have always felt that most are too concerned with tracking your time or speak to you in legal terms that are difficult to understand, hence patronizing, but to pleasant surprise, Becky has been so humble and gracious while very knowledgeable. I would rehire Becky without reservation.

Outstanding, Client-Centered Lawyer
I have worked with Becky for 6 years. She has written numerous leases, purchase and sales agreements, wills, and many other documents for me. She has negotiated and written a number of leases for another business that I am a part-owner of. She also negotiated a settlement for me from a tenant who terminated a lease prematurely, using a challenged legal argument. In the latter case she was able to negotiate a substantial financial settlement for me, without resorting to the legal system, which would have been expensive and quite possibly, futile. Her negotiation and mediation skills are top notch. She is a cost-effective lawyer, unlike many out there. I am very happy to have her as a trusted confident, a very competent attorney, and also, a friend.

Efficient! Fair! Effective!
There is no lawyer I would trust more to represent me legally than Becky Anderson. Becky quickly dispatched with a complex and serious legal matter that caused my husband and me to be up at night sweating with dread. Becky Anderson understood our urgency to resolve the issue. She very quickly cut to the chase with the opposing party and thoroughly resolved the situation. The outcome was better than we had thought possible. Becky thinks multiple moves ahead in devising her legal strategy. Then she quickly and methodically approaches the problem. She brought us immediate resolution. She didn’t waste her time or our money with inefficiencies or dragging things out. She understood exactly who to speak to and what to say and when to say it. We obtained the best outcome and were spared a legal battle because of Becky’s irrefutable persuasion with the opposing party. Becky Anderson receives my highest recommendation.

Professionalism, knowledge, skill, tact and wit = 100% success.
I am so grateful for Becky Anderson’s legal help in a recent real estate contract dispute. It was clear from my first conversation with her that she had deep experience with the laws surrounding contracts and real estate. As I worked with her over several days, I came to appreciate how her sense of fairness and decency combined with an extensive and nuanced understanding of the law allowed her to find a very good solution to a problem that looked like it was going to mushroom into a terrible, expensive adversarial mess. We avoided the expense, risk and stress of litigation largely because of Becky’s competence and professionalism. She was a wonderful advocate for my interests but she advocated for me in a way that minimized rather than maximized conflict with the opposing party. Ultimately, this was a big win for everyone. Five stars!
