Northern Illinois University College of Law, J.D., 2006, magna cum laude

Northern Illinois University, B.S., 2000




As a former human resources consultant, Rebecca has a unique understanding of the legal landmines her clients face every day. Hot topic issues like employee benefits, executive compensation and ERISA can be exceedingly difficult for employers to navigate without strong and dedicated counsel. Rebecca thoughtfully and skillfully provides management with advice and counsel in human resource employee benefit compliance and employment litigation.

Additionally, Rebecca represents employers in various matters arising under federal and state employment laws, including wage and hour claims and audits, discrimination and retaliation claims and contract disputes. She also advises employers in the highly complex realm of ERISA and IRS regulations. 

When she is not working she is actively participating in local events and fundraising efforts within her community in Wisconsin.
