Rebecca is a graduate of the Georgetown University Law Center. While living in Washington D.C. Rebecca worked on a variety of projects: contract litigation, tobacco litigation, criminal litigation, real estate law, employment law, taxes and asset protection, and mergers and acquisitions.
She held legal positions with The Nature Conservancy, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the law firms of Silver Freedman & Taft LLP, and Krooth & Altman LLP. She was a summer associate at Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis in Philadelphia. Also, during law school Rebecca represented juvenile criminal defendants as part of Georgetown’s clinic program.
After falling in love with mountains while taking a semester of law school classes in Innsbruck Austria, Rebecca toured the United States looking for a home that had natural beauty and did not require an hour and a half commute. The first day she was in Salt Lake City, she decided that this was her new home.
Rebecca graduated from law school in 2000 and immediately moved to Utah and began to practice law here. She has focused on Family Law and other litigation, including business and contractual disputes.
In December 2004, Rebecca left a medium-sized family law firm to create her own firm which now has five lawyers, three paralegals and two support staff employees. Rebecca is a Utah State Court Rostered domestics mediator and also has been an adjunct legal and political science professor.
