Rebecca’s practice involves a range of litigation matters, including securities litigation, insurance disputes, complex civil litigation, government investigations, and white collar criminal defense.  

In 2016, Rebecca served as a Special Assistant District Attorney in Middlesex County. In that role, she prosecuted numerous drug, larceny, breaking and entering, and motor vehicle cases; argued motions to suppress and motions to dismiss; and tried eleven cases to verdict, including six jury trials.

Among her pro bono work at the firm, Rebecca has assisted in preparing amicus briefs submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court, including in a recent First Amendment speech case, McCullen v. Coakley. She has also represented victims of domestic violence in G. L. c. 209A restraining order proceedings under the firm’s Domestic Violence Project, including assisting the family of a victim in a high profile domestic abuse case.  

Before joining the firm, Rebecca practiced as an associate in the Boston office of an international law firm.

During law school, Rebecca was a Note Editor for the Boston College Law Review and a member of the Religious Freedom Moot Court Team. She was also a student attorney in the Boston College Legal Assistance Bureau’s Civil Litigation Clinic, where she represented clients in housing, family law, and public benefits disputes.
