  1. Family
    90%
    My focus for the almost my entire legal career has been family law litigation including divorce, paternity, custody, adoption, grandparents rights, child support, emergency orders, and probate. I am the managing attorney at our firm of 3 to 4 lawyers, all of us doing family law. Our aim is to have complete client satisfaction with our services and we work hard to achieve this. We believe that superior skill and mastery of the field makes it faster, cheaper and less traumatizing to our client.

    24 years

  2. Mediation
    9%
    I was trained as a mediator in D.C. in 1999 to do Victim Offender mediation. Since then I've done another 100 hours of mediation training and mentorship in Utah. I bring my skill as a family lawyer and contract writer to the mediation table and mediate family law and small business cases.

WE OFFER MANY TYPES OF LEGAL SERVICE SO THAT YOU CAN FIND THE PATH THAT FITS YOUR CASE. WE ARE BEST KNOWN FOR TAKING DIFFICULT AND COMPLEX FAMILY LAW CASES BUT WE ALSO DO EXCELLENT SMALL BUSINESS LEGAL WORK AND ESTATE PLANNING. LET US KNOW HOW WE CAN HELP YOU!

I have been practicing family law in Utah since the year 2000.  I moved here from Washington D.C. after graduating from Georgetown Law, doing a juvenile criminal defense clinic,  receiving a mediation certificate, and working for HUD, The Nature Conservancy, and 3 law firms.  In 2004, I started my own firm and expanded to have a number of associate attorneys.  We are a boutique firm focusing entirely on family-related disputes: divorces, paternity actions, adoptions, custody, child support, grandparent-rights, prenuptial and post-nuptial agreements, estate planning, trust creation, contested probate cases, and small business contract writing and legal assistance. I absolutely love managing this law firm. I feel incredibly fortunate to work with great lawyers every day, helping our clients meet their goals in very difficult situations.  It is incredibly rewarding when our clients tell me how we improved the quality of their lives through our work.

If you need someone who understands the law and will help you
Rebecca helped me so much with my divorce. It was a very stressful time for me and my first lawyer wasn't giving me clear answers. From my first consultation with Rebecca I could tell she had excellent understanding of the law and what was fair. She clearly has dealt with many types of cases and personalities and is not afraid to stand up for what is right. I felt so relieved to have her guidance. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a good divorce lawyer.

Endorse Rebecca
Family Attorney | May 15
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Rebecca is a tenacious and zealous advocate for her clients. Exceptionally bright, she is a sophisticated examiner of the opposing party. Savvy negotiator, she is a formidable opponent in a litigation matter. However, she also has common sense, and realizes the practicality and the need to settle a case when it is not in her client's best interest to try a case. She is a warm and friendly colleague outside of the courtroom, which also facilitates resolution. Rebecca is a good choice if you have a family law case."
