Rebecca graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 1989, making her a second generation graduate of the law school. She has embarked upon the same journey that eventually led her parents to successful careers in the practice of law and the judiciary. She has worked for several prestigious downtown Chicago law firms, gaining a high level of skill and sophistication in estate and business planning. Most recently she worked for J. P. Morgan and during her eight year tenure with the Firm she headed up a wealth planning division that focused on middle market business owners.
Rebecca’s practice focuses primarily on estate planning, wealth preservation and business planning. She routinely represents closely held businesses and business owners, helping to create and implement appropriate business succession plans and more complex estate plans. As part of her practice she also handles financial planning, probate and real estate matters.
She represents clients across a broad spectrum of socio-economic circumstances and is developing a pro-bono practice. Her estate planning experience spans from the very simple, perhaps involving only a Will and Powers of Attorney, to the complex, involving the transfer of business interests, asset protection, wealth preservation and charitable planning.
Rebecca is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, the Chicago Estate Planning Council and the DuPage County Estate Planning Council. She also is a Hearing Board Member for the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission. She is a past member of the ISBA Federal Tax Committee.
