After a string of high-exposure cases, Rebecca has consolidated her practice and defends corporations, professionals, business owners, entrepreneurs, public entities and investors.

Prior to joining the firm, Rebecca’s career started at a boutique plaintiff’s trial law firm, where her practice focused on complex premises liability, products liability, all aspects of personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice.
