Law Offices of Rebekah Ryan Main - client focused, cost conscious legal services - Free Consult.
Our Response to COVID-19
For our existing and potential new clients, we remain available to respond and consult via video conferencing, telephone and email. We will make every effort to answer calls and respond to emails timely. Although the courts are closed to regular business and filings, they do remain open for emergencies and we are prepared to help you address and respond to emergencies during the court shut-down. We are also prepared to conduct regular business, including non-emergency filings, as soon as the courts reopen for business. In other words, its not business as usual but business as unusual, for now.
Our office continues to provide consultations for potential new clients via telephone, and we are making all necessary accommodations to remain available to assist our community during this challenging time.
We are absolutely accepting new clients at this time and want to encourage you to continue to contact the firm remotely – via telephone, fax, or email – while we weather this challenge together. At this firm, we pride ourselves on creative problem solving, so don’t hesitate to contact us. However, in an effort to keep our staff and our community well, and to “flatten the curve” we will not be having in-person meetings and will not be receiving in-person visitors to the office. We look forward to seeing everyone again once this challenge passes. Be well.
I truly like my job, my clients and the practice of law. I have years of civil litigation experience including complex litigation, discovery, depositions, use of expert witnesses and trial, having practiced almost exclusively as a medical malpractice defense attorney right out of law school. This experience has afforded me a general civil litigation skill-set and foundational understanding of the law that is invaluable with respect to my other practice areas such as divorce and family law.
Not all legal matters, or even most, end up in trial. But it’s always best to begin the process with an eye toward trial. It helps you to prepare your case for the absolute best settlement posture, which is in everyone’s best interests. And if you do end up at trial, you’re ready for that as well.
In addition to being an attorney, I am a mom and a former professor of law. While I consider my three daughters to be my greatest accomplishments, I am also very proud of my students, some of whom I see in court. Being a mother, I have a very child-focused approach to family law matters and I take my responsibility toward children personally.
I came to the practice of law a little bit later in life, after having other jobs (including being a medic for 10 years) which is how I know that law is absolutely the right occupation for me. I have met many burned-out attorneys who hate what they do. I love my work. I feel passionate about the practice of law and I take my responsibility to my clients seriously. In my career, I have had the unique opportunity to practice in many areas of law, as well as exposure to interesting legal problems and the privilege of solving them for clients from all walks of life.
I bring a "problem solving" attitude to each new case, and I am pleased to say that I have helped many fine people settle matters rather than litigate. Being inquisitive, I tend to look more deeply into an issue and for that reason, I have experienced much success with legal problem solving and I look forward to each new legal challenge, and to helping each new client.
I hope that you never need a lawyer, but if the time comes when you do please give me a call. I look forward to meeting you.
