Rebecca is passionate about representing clients who are facing separation and divorce. While understanding that the dynamics of a family change during that time, she uses her knowledge of the law and skills as a negotiator to guide her clients through the appropriate legal route to best achieve their goals. Since graduating from NCCU School of Law in 2011, Rebecca has focused her practice on all aspects of family law, including mediation, arbitration, litigation, and the collaborative divorce process. In 2017, Rebecca became the third member of the firm to attain the prestigious designation of Board Certified Specialist in Family Law by the North Carolina Board of Legal Specialization. Rebecca is also a collaboratively trained attorney, which further equips her to assist clients with dispute resolution outside of the courtroom. Rebecca serves as a Certified Parenting Coordinator where she assists parties involved in high conflict custody cases.

During law school, Rebecca served as a summer clerk to the Honorable Judge Christian of the District of Columbia and participated in the law school's Family Law Clinic. Rebecca also clerked for two family law firms during law school and subsequently joined one of those firms after graduation. Rebecca is a member of the family law section of the NC Bar Association and serves on the Family Forum, a committee that publishes a newsletter for family law attorneys throughout the state, and the Citizen Lawyer Committee. Within the community, Rebecca volunteers for the Wake County Domestic Violence Custody Court where she represents parties of domestic violence cases on their custody issues. Prior to law school, Rebecca earned her Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Meredith College. Outside of the office, Rebecca enjoys spending time with family, reading, and relaxing at the beach.
