Rebecca has over 20 years litigation experience. She has worked for government agencies, large non-profits, and law firms in D.C., Philadelphia, and Salt Lake City. Rebecca started her own law firm in 2004 and has since trained numerous lawyers to litigate and mediate cases. She sat on the Utah Bar Commission’s New Lawyer Training Program and Character and Fitness Committees for decades.
Rebecca is on both Utah State’s Basic Roster and the Court Roster for Qualified Divorce Mediators. Rebecca has met the requirements to be a Master Mediator in Utah.
In February 2000, Rebecca became a mediator within the UBUNTU Victim Offender Mediation Program Training in Washington D.C. In 2008 and 2009, she went through the Utah basic mediation training, the Utah Domestics mediation training, and the Utah Mediation Mentorship program to become a Utah Court-Rostered mediator. She has hundreds of hours of mediation experience as an attorney advocate and hundreds more as a mediator.
Rebecca’s style falls within the “evaluative” definition of mediation. Because of her many years of litigation experience, she is inclined to reference possible viewpoints of the court, to discuss applicable statutes, law, and case law, and to bring up aspects of the case that the parties may have not considered.
