"I am genuinely concerned about the welfare of families, especially children. I understand the end of a significant relationship is one of the most difficult and uncertain times in a person's life. My job as a family law attorney is to make that process easier."

Rebecca devotes her practice exclusively to family law. She is dedicated to serving her clients with integrity, efficiency and an understanding that every client has unique needs. A compassionate and tenacious attorney, Rebecca will work vigorously to successfully settle your case and has effective litigation experience when settlement cannot be reached. It is important to Rebecca that she and her clients are partners in the legal process. She ensures her clients are able to make informed decisions in their best interests.

Rebecca graduated with honors from the University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minnesota, obtaining her Bachelor of Arts degree with a double major in Print Journalism and Political Science. While at St. Thomas, she participated in a three-week "Law in London and Dublin" course.

Rebecca earned her Doctorate of Law degree (J.D.) from William Mitchell College of Law, St. Paul, Minnesota. She knew early on during law school she wanted to focus her practice on family law.
