About Rebecca

M.M. (MBA Equivalent), J.D.

It’s about family…

As a young girl, Rebecca fell in love with the idea of becoming an attorney like the family business attorney. While many told her she couldn’t do it, she continued marching forward, earning degree after degree, passing the Bar Exam, and even passively fighting the hometown attorneys that found her threatening. It is her hope to pass along such zeal to her daughter, Freya.

Her Priorities

1

Children Come First

Statistical research has shown, time and again, that children are the most vulnerable to the trauma of divorce, well beyond their parents and often because of the fight between their parents. Rebecca places a high value on helping the children of her clients get the most out of the divorce without reservation.

2

Honest Business Practice

Attornies are stereotyped as only aiming to rack up as many working hours as possible in a case to bill to their clients. Rebecca subscribes to the idea that clients can do much of their own work and only need her services to ensure that the work done is within the parameters of the court, legal and binding, and to assist in the representation of the client in court. That is why she insists on free consultations, to get to know the potential client and for the potential client to get to know her as well as to get a sense of what the client can do for his/herself.

3

Passive Aggressive Tactics

The biggest critique we have received about Rebecca’s tactics is how passive she seems, yet she will also not budge when the law is on her client’s side. In the office, we call this tactic “making rope,” as in the opposing side is aggressively working towards making the court angry and we are aggressively working towards letting them. This tactic has worked more often than any aggressive stance to the favor of Rebecca’s clients, giving her the professional reputation of being the quiet threat.
