Work History

Commended for her “exemplary commitment to justice” by the district attorney for Montgomery County, Rebecca brings a valuable blend of public service and litigation experience to her work with firm clients. Her practice focuses on advising municipalities in the Philadelphia suburbs on legislative, transactional, compliance and litigation matters. With 10 years of prior courtroom experience, Rebecca also allocates a portion of her practice to representing individual clients in civil and criminal litigation.  

 

Before transitioning to private practice, Rebecca served as assistant district attorney for Montgomery County. In this capacity, she handled thousands of criminal cases, led prosecution in more than 25 jury trials, and served as a special assistant United States attorney in federal court proceedings. Her work on prominent cases earned her commendation on three separate occasions; once from the FBI and twice from former District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman.

 

Rebecca’s leadership roles at the district attorney’s office included captain of the economic crimes unit as well as the firearms unit, and leadership of the accelerated rehabilitative disposition program, a state pre-trial intervention initiative. She also served as a member of Montgomery County’s elder abuse round table and gave presentations on crime prevention to community groups and other stakeholders.

 

Rebecca’s background and experience in public service is fundamental to her ability to advise municipalities and private entities facing litigation. In addition to her demonstrated capacity in the courtroom and experience negotiating out-of-court resolutions, Rebecca is skilled at quickly understanding and applying complex areas of law. Having coordinated with more than 50 law enforcement units during her time at the district attorney’s office, Rebecca is also well-suited to communicating clearly and effectively with municipal leadership and staff.
