As a parent of two children, a long-time Charlottean and an experienced family law attorney, Rebecca understands relationships and knows that a good working relationship with her clients is a key to success. She prioritizes providing excellent legal representation to clients while also respecting her client’s values and goals during their divorce process. She believes “a good education eliminates fear” and is effective at advising her clients about their rights throughout the divorce process.
Rebecca, a founding member of Wofford Burt, began her law practice in 1997 after graduating from Wake Forest School of Law. She is an experienced litigator and former law professor. Rebecca is a North Carolina-certified Parenting Coordinator and is appointed in high-conflict custody cases to assist parents in effective communication and decision-making in the best interests of children. She is committed to helping children who are underserved and is a long-time volunteer for the Council for Children’s Rights and Assistance League of Charlotte’s Teen Court. She is also the founder of The Lunch Project, a 501c3 nonprofit, operating in Charlotte, North Carolina and Tanzania, East Africa, to support community-run lunch programs in public primary schools in Tanzania and connect Charlotte-area children to their global community.
Rebecca uses her combined experiences as a litigator, educator and parent to help clients navigate the divorce process and to advocate and negotiate on their behalves. In 2016, she switched her primary practice from litigation to collaborative law. As a collaborative lawyer, Rebecca assists family law clients in areas of custody, child support, alimony and equitable distribution with the goal of settling their case out of court. She offers family law litigation support as part of the litigation team at Wofford Burt.
