Excellent and Driven Attorney
After initially speaking with Rebecca, it was clear she cares about the work she does and the people she serves; Rebecca understood the emotional sensitivity attached to our case and worked with us with cognizance. I am so grateful to have met an attorney so intentional about helping those who the system and many institutions fail, as such, Rebecca is incredible in that she makes time for those who need it. With her level of extensive experience and a high level of caring for the people and work she does, you cannot go wrong with choosing Rebecca. I highly recommend Rebecca Coll for all your litigation needs-- I am beyond honored to have met her!

Excellent lawyer - highly recommded
Rebecca Coll is an excellent lawyer. She is extremely professional and passionate. Mostly importantly, she deeply cares for her clients. Rebecca and her partner Jim guided me throughout my case and provided critical guidance and support. I could've never resolved my case as smoothly as I did without their service. I highly recommend Rebecca to anyone looking for legal help.

10 star attorney!
I had the pleasure of working directly with Rebecca since 2017. Since then, Rebecca and her partner James Quadra became two of the attorneys I trust the most, especially when it comes to litigations. Around 2017, my company was having a shareholder dispute that later escalated to a full lawsuit. My previous attorneys that I hired before meeting Rebecca were not able to resolve the case and only seemed to have escalated the lawsuit. After the case going no-where for several months, I luckily stumbled upon Rebecca and James Quadra. Rebecca took the time to listen to my case, gave me great advice on how to best proceed, and worked diligently to defend the company and our point of view. She's also a phenomenal writer, which is an extremely important skill set for attorneys, as a lot of opinions/arguments are presented to the other side/judges over writing. Unlike my previous attorneys that I worked with, Rebecca was not only a better writer but also a lot more efficient with the entire process, where she would complete work 2-3 faster than the previous attorneys I've worked with, and also knew how to be aggressive toward the other side when needed. I also felt like she really genuinely cared about me as a person and was really seeking out the best interest of myself and the company. I can go on and add why working with Rebecca was amazing! Overall, because I met Rebecca and James, we were able to resolve the lawsuit successfully and achieve a great outcome for myself and the company. What the other attorneys could not resolve in a few years, Rebecca and James resolved in a matter of months. In a lot of ways, I feel like I found lifelong attorneys that I can completely trust, especially when it comes to litigation. If I could rate them on a scale of 1-5, they truly get a 10!

A Refreshing Honest Attorney
I contacted Rebecca for a business issue she was upfront honest and made a plan for me without me spending a dime, took care of my needs and handled it like a professional. Not only did Rebecca put me at ease she was in contact with me the whole way. This is a must use Lawyer and firm

The Best Attorney I've ever worked with!
Ms. Coll is an outstanding attorney. Responsive, smart- totally committed to the client. I can't say enough. Ms. Coll went out of her way, above and far beyond to make sure I was treated fairly. She not only proactively reached out to me to make sure I recovered what was owed to me but followed it all the way through to make sure I received the wired funds and that it was in my account. I highly recommend Ms. Cole as I believe she is very trust worthy, responsive, extremely professional and most of all a strong client advocate.

Smart strategic compassionate attorney - gets results.
Ms. Coll represented me in a wrongful termination case and because of her skills and strategy I made out very well. She always had my best interest in mind. I whole heartedly recommend her to you. Ms. Coll is VERY SMART, hard working and strategic. She was always steps ahead of the adversary. She pushed the other side into settling on terms very favorable to me. She is a top notch attorney, and also a very kind and considerate person. I am vey fortunate to have had her advocate for me.

Rebecca Coll is an aggressive, knowledgeable, intense lawyer that you will be thrilled is your advocate and not on opposing side
Rebecca Coll was incredibly proficient, efficient and wonderful to have on my team during a particularly difficult time in my life when I realized I had been the victim of fraud. She is very no nonsense and direct in approach and gave me great insight into the legal issues regarding my case, as well as, spot on description of what to expect. I felt at ease for the first time in months when I finally had my first conversation with her about the case. My father is an attorney as is my uncle so I've been around the legal profession all of my life. It's extremely important to get the best lawyer you can find and afford--Rebecca was without a doubt an excellent lawyer and adversary. There is a seriousness about her that can be slightly intimidating. I knew I was in great hands from the start and really enjoyed watching her intimidate the hell out of the perpetrator of the fraud.

Excellent Attorney! Highly Recommended!
Extremely responsive, thorough, prepared and effective lawyer who helped us with an intellectual property case. Rebecca was knowledgeable about all aspects of our case, kept us informed at all times, and clearly laid out all of our options as the case moved through the various stages of litigation.

A job well done!
Rebecca was great! She understood the magnitude of my issue, was well versed in the technical as well as legal aspects of my case, was highly communicative - keeping me informed regularly - and, while appearing to be soft spoken, was able to get tough when needed. I am very impressed with her professionalism, understanding of the law, and technical ability to understand the numbers.

Highly Recommended and very Professional Attorney
I was first introduced to Rebecca Coll when I engaged the services of Calvo, Fisher & Jacob. I was involved in a trust management case, and Rebecca Coll was part of the team that worked for me. My first impression upon meeting Rebecca was that she was extremely competent. I find this to be the most important quality in an attorney, as you need to immediately feel that trust in their capabilities from the onset, and Rebecca made me feel just that. What I didn't understand about lawsuits, is that it takes specific areas of expertise from specific attorneys in the legal process, in order to facilitate a winning strategy. In this particular case, I worked primarily with two attorneys, Rebecca Coll and James Quadra. While James Quadra was the lead litigator and who was equally superb, it was Rebecca Coll who provided the very intelligently written briefs. Prior to this experience, I did not realize the importance of such writings, and the crucial part they play in the whole process. This has to be one of Rebecca's strongest qualities. Her superb writing skills are amazing. I have learned that it takes a special finesse to eloquently surmise in a brief the essence of what the issue of the case is all about, particularly to put it in your favor. Rebecca's critical thinking process that she displayed in her briefs, allowed the whole team to pull together a very clear and strong case, which in turn, provided me with the very outcome that I hoped to achieve when I engaged their services in the first place. In short, I got what I wanted. What was also impressive, was Rebecca's constant communication. This was an attorney who I felt was working for me 24 hours a day. Rebecca never made me feel that there was another client who was more important or more derserving of her attention. Everytime I contacted her, she responded immediately and always in a very positive manner. Lastly, the one thing that was truly reassuring, was that Rebecca Coll, and the whole team of Calvo, Fisher & Jacob for that matter, never made me feel like this was just my problem. On the contrary, Rebecca and the team took all of the pressure off of me, and placed it on themselves. I felt as though they were equally involved in the case as much as I was, which is something I never experienced before. For anyone who is in need of such legal counsel, I would highly recommend Rebecca Coll and the entire staff at Calvo, Fisher & Jacob for their superior legal capabilites.
