“Rebecca Baer is an honest and trustworthy lawyer who I would recommend to family, friends and even strangers…. Rebecca gained my trust and respect quickly after meeting her. I asked questions (lots of questions), she answered. Divorce is never easy, and gets even more complicated when large assets, trusts and children are involved. Rebecca understood my situation and provided clear guidance and reasonable expectation every step of the divorce process. She took time to know me as a person, as a parent, and my children’s best interests. Rebecca is compassionate yet tough, and gets the job done. My divorce was settled within a few months, which would have never been possible without her. Thank you Rebecca, I really appreciate you!”
“Rebecca did a great job during my difficult Divorce Process. She did an excellent job with all the challenges that occurred. She was always available in person or on the phone for questions or concerns I had. I would highly recommend to use Rebecca.”
“I hired Rebecca for my Divorce. She heard and understood my Challenges for the Divorce and took effective measures to deescalate and resolve it amicably…. Rebecca was professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable.”
“Rebecca helped me through my child custody case. This was hands down the hardest time in my life. She was kind, caring and professional. She got me what I wanted and we were able to make compromises without going to trial.”
“[Rebecca’s] knowledge of divorce law is excellent, and also her interpersonal skills are off the charts! During the negotiations my former wife's attorney withdrew from the case and Rebecca continued with dealings between us…. I feel that it was mostly due to her personal skills that helped us settle out of court! Thank you so much!!”
“Rebecca is professional, sharp and always made me feel as though she truly was on my side and cared about doing right by my children and I. I can't imagine going through the process without her by my side and would highly recommend her to anyone who is seeking counsel on family matters.”
“Rebecca and her staff handled our adoption proceeding. We were worried that the process would be highly stressful, complicated and expensive. After meeting with Rebecca, all of our questions and concerns were addressed and our fears faded away. Our case was handled efficiently. The paperwork was completed immediately. Both the time line and cost were in keeping with the original estimate. We received regular communications about status on our proceeding and anytime we reached out to her we received responses right away. We honestly had a great experience, have no complaints and got the outcome we hoped for. We would absolutely recommend her services and would use her again if ever needed.”
