Professional Advice
Rebekkah cared. She asked me what my goal was and advised me of the law. When something I wanted to do, like move out of state with my girlfriend, she advised me the legal ramifications and risks of doing so. Ultimately, with great advice and patience I got my end goal. The custody and divorce process is expensive, so I spent a lot of money. However, Rebekkah was reasonable and balanced my goals with cost consciousness. She is no longer practicing, which is disappointing, but has given me a handful of referrals she trusts. If she comes back in the game, I would no doubt hire her again.

Caring, Knowledgable, Professional.
Rebekkah was referred to me by a close family friend, described as a shark who would go to bat for me in an ugly divorce case, where lies and infidelity were involved. I am so thankful that I first consulted with her, as she truly heard my heart, my fears, and my desired outcome in a case where custody and state lines were involved. Unfortunately, I was unable to retain Rebekkah as my lawyer, due to an out of state law that required me to use an attorney in my newly settled state after living there for 7 months. The attorneys I have met with since her seem to care only about money and have been cold. She truly cares about her clients, thinks outside the box, and is an advocate for YOU and your rights! If you’re seeking these attributes in an attorney, your search can end here.

Definitely recommend this EXCELLENT attorney well versed in Conservatorship and Family Law!
I would definitely highly recommend Rebekkah Mouw. I give this attorney and the law firm 10+ for responding to phone calls and emails, reasonable fees, educated and experienced staff, good work ethic, helpful, empathetic and produced some excellent briefs that won the case. Lindsey Harris and Rebekkah Mouw both worked diligently and did a superb job putting together the briefs and documents for this case. I flew in from California and Rebekkah met me at the Courthouse and her arguments before the Judge, cross-examination of witnesses and experience with Conservatorship law resulted in a positive outcome. I hired and conducted business over the phone with these lawyers from California and asked if they could litigate a Conservatorship case in a town 3-hours away from their home office. I had read previous clients positive comments and reviews and after interviewing them over the phone I decided to hire Harris Law & Trust. All staff were very professional and helpful and worked diligently since we had only 8 days to get all paperwork and briefs filed at the respective courthouse. I'm so happy with their services and their efforts to drive three hours from their office to handle this case. If I have any further legal issues in South Dakota I would definitely contact them in the future to represent me. Thank you to all the wonderful staff that I spoke to ...

Very professional, excellent lawyer!
I had court to set up visitation of my daughter with her father. I’d never been to court and I didn’t really know what to expect. Rebekkah was very helpful and kind and walked me through how the proceedings would go. I was nervous about what the judge would decide but Rebekkah set very realistic expectations about the worst possible outcome and the best possible outcome. She was AMAZING during the proceedings and passionately advocated for me and my daughter. The end result of our case was exactly what I wanted it to be.

Best of the best!
Rebekkah represented me for an arduous, complex, and deeply contentious custody dispute. With every step, Rebekkah was whip-smart, unwavering, tenacious, and unscrupulously professional during our hearings but also compassionate and empathetic during our meetings. Every meeting I felt heard, understood, and valued. She explained things in a way that is clear, concise and kind. You will absolutely not find another another attorney that is more perfect a balance of goal-focused and people-oriented.

Very thorough attorney!
Rebekkah went above and beyond for my children! She was on point at every court hearing! She always made herself available through my custody case. I would definitely recommend her as an attorney! Thank you so much Rebekkah!

Dedicated and Thorough Attorney.
My case was a long and complicated one. Rebekkah Steinwand was comforting and professional through all phases of my case. She made me feel confident in our case when I had doubts. The amount of prep work that went into my case was extensive and i was impressed with how smoothly it all went. While the legal system takes a long time so my case took forever, she was there every step of the way. She’s the one you want on your side in a court room.

Child custody and father rights
Rebekkah was very understanding and sympathetic to my feelings about my situation. She made sure that she informed me of all aspects of my legal rights regarding my situation and not just answering the questions I had originally posed.

I hired Rebekkah for my divorce that I thought would go smoothly but with her advice it turned very bad, very quick and lasted for two years. She had me make decisions based off of emotions not based off of the law which caused the divorce to become very difficult. She cost me more money in the 6 months I had her as my attorney than it cost me to hire some one way better that represented me for 18 months and got me everything I wanted. When asked for money back due to her poor representation and not following the law they said they would take the interest off of my bill, which was about $1.50, because everyone needed to get paid. I was also told by other attorneys that she had made just as bad mistakes on other cases. If your cases is simple and cut & dry than I'm sure she would be fine. If you have a difficult divorce & custody DO NOT HIRE REBEKKAH.
