She simply goes above and beyond in essentially every category when assisting you with the critical decision in your life--how best to change jobs or find new work opportunities. She is timely, responsive, insightful, resourceful, has great connections and is truly a joy to work with. I cannot recommend Rebecca highly enough.” – Joe Zeidner, Associate Attorney, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP
Rebecca was incredible to work with. From the first conversation we had, I could tell she was uniquely thorough, and she remained so throughout the entire lateral process. In addition to adeptly helping me through the targeting, interviewing and transition portions of the process, she was incredibly empathetic during an uncertain time. I never felt like I was just a deal she was trying to get closed. She genuinely cared that where I ended up was the right fit for me, and was tremendously helpful in getting me there. During a time when I had to make a tough career decision, I was very grateful to have a person to think everything through with that I could trust like Rebecca. – Will Hamilton, Real Estate Associate, Greenberg Traurig
Rebecca is excellent at what she does. She has deep knowledge and understanding of Southeastern legal markets including Atlanta, Charlotte and Raleigh. Further, she’s well connected with key people at top firms - and it will be obvious why once you speak with her: she’s personable, friendly and has always done her homework. Rebecca never let an email, call or text go unanswered, and she made the process of lateraling to a firm across the country while still working feel smooth. She took the time to get to know me and to understand why I was lateraling and what I was looking for in a new firm. She coached me through every step of the process, even staying in touch after I started at my new firm. I’ve recommended Rebecca to close friends considering a move already and would continue to do so in the future. – Zach Lankford, Corporate Associate, McGuire Woods
