About Rebekah

Learn Rebekah’s areas of practice.

Rebekah became interested in estate planning early in her life following the death of her maternal grandfather. Her grandfather was a hardworking man of means. Unfortunately, he didn't do any estate planning until very near his death, leaving a variety of loose ends that would not be tied up for years. She saw first hand the frustration and emotional strain that resulted from planning so near the end of his life and the almost war like back and forth between her grandfather's attorney and her family following his passing. As a result, Rebekah is passionate about getting estate planning done early and getting it done right. 

She is straightforward and earnest in her desire to help her clients make a plan that works for their individual circumstances.

Rebekah is a graduate of the University of Utah, S.J. Quinney School of Law. She is a member of the Utah State Bar. She was born and raised in Oregon but moved to Utah in 2006 to attend Brigham Young University where she studied international relations. Rebekah married Parker Wightman in 2009. The couple has two sons. Rebekah has been interested in estate planning and elder law throughout her education. Rebekah completed an Elder Law internship with Utah Legal Services during her second year of law school. She has been privileged to volunteer for the Wills for Heroes and Serving Our Seniors programs through the Young Lawyers Division of the Utah State Bar.

Excellent estate lawyer!
Rebekah helped us with a pretty complicated estate plan. We needed two wills and two trusts to meet the needs of our blended family. She took a lot of time getting our full story and hearing our desires for this estate plan. Then she put a lot if thought and time into creating something that really suits our needs and will be adaptable for future changes to our family dynamic. She put everything into a super organized and helpful binder with template forms for areas we need to complete ourselves. We highly recommend Rebekah!

Estate Planning
I had waited way to long to have our estate planning prepared. We pursued Rebakah to do handle this work and she did an outstanding job. She was very thorough and the communication was clear and excellent. As our lawyer, Rebekah did all the heavy lifting and included us when necessary. We also asked her to prepare an LLC for a second leased home and it was also completed very smoothly. Everything was presented in a nicely bound version with a checklist of the accounts and other things that only we could move into the trust. This made it simple and easy for us. I would highly recommend utilizing the services of Rebekah.

Rebekah Wightman
Rebekah Wightman is an amazing lawyer. She put together my living will and family trust, and was knowledgeable through out the process. We met several times to make sure she had all the information needed to complete our trust. She is very thorough with each step. She did the research on our properties to make sure everything was correct. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.

Estate Planning Master
Rebekah was very accomodating with my busy schedule. She answered many complicated questions I had, and made sure my plan fit exactly what my wishes were. Planning for your kids after your death is EXTREMELY emotional and hard, and Rebekah was very sensitive to my feelings, and let me go at my own pace. It's CRITICALLY important that everyone has their estate, no matter how small, in order. It will save your family the hassle and you will have better piece of mind knowing that your wishes will be carried out. THANK YOU Rebekah for getting me through this.

Easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable
Rebekah helped us put in place all of our estate planning. She walked us through the process, made it easy to understand, explained the whys and why-not's, and managed the extras, like retitling of assets. She is easy to get along with, and will make sure you are getting what you want and need from your planning experience. We feel secure in knowing that if anything should happen to us, our family and their future will be taken care of.

She's the attorney to go to for you estate planning!!
No one likes to think about the "what will happen when I pass on" scenarios. It's not a pleasant thought process, but everyone needs to have a plan. Rebekah recently helped me review my plan and will. She helped me weigh all of the pros and cons of setting up a trust and explained everything very well and so that it made sense to me. She helped me get everything set up properly so that all of my assets are in my trust. She even makes sure that you have all the extras for your children to make sure they are taken care of if you can't be there (even if it's just because you are out of town). She made it easy, quick and painless. She isn't your typical attorney. She has a great personality, is awesome to talk to and work with. I highly recommend her for any estate planning, wills, trusts, etc.

Operating Agreement
I hired Rebekah to draft an operating agreement for my business. She was thorough, efficient, and good to involve me in the process. Upon completing the agreement, she walked me through each part and made sure I understood the language and terms of the agreement. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for an honest and dedicated attorney.
