Rebecca Pescador grew up in Southwest Colorado learning a love of law from the family business attorney. She loves the idea that people can be helped through the struggles and politics of everyday life through books and logic. After earning a Bachelor of Arts in Economics with a minor in Japanese Language from Willamette University, Rebecca continued on in the graduate program there to earn the Juris Doctorate, Master of Management (equal to a combined M.B.A. and Master of Public Administration), and a Certificate of Dispute Resolution.  Following her husband, Monte, out to CU Boulder, they eventually moved to Northglenn in 2006 where she continued her home office practicing family law and estate planning and getting noticed several times by locals and the local Bar Association for her work with low-income clients, particularly for her high percentage of pro bono work.

They moved her office into the Melody Building, where it currently resides, at the end of 2014, expanding the practice and renaming it Whole Family Legal, reflecting her desire for the practice to be a one-stop, whole family legal service. Rebecca continues to maintain 10% of her case load as pro bono cases, and several of her clients are on some form of payment plan.  Providing a quality, affordable legal service and making the process understandable to her clients are her guiding principles.

She is trained and experienced in different forms of alternative dispute resolution, including negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.  She assists clients by preparing them for the processes and accompanying them and representing them through these processes, and occasionally serves as a mediator.
