In Rebecca’s day-to-day work, there’s nothing unusual about seeing a client walk into her office, proudly sporting their Red Bands after a hard day getting stuck in on the farm. Born and bred in Winton, where she is based, rural life and the legal requirements that come with that are second nature to her — which is precisely why she’s such a trusted representative for her community. Let’s just say, it’s not uncommon for her to serve three generations of a family. Rebecca knows that running a farm is no small feat, so it’s all about making legal support as accessible as possible to anyone who needs it.

As an expert in Private Client Law, she listens to her clients more than she talks, helps to put them at ease in stressful situations, and reassures them that there is always a way through. For her, it’s about presenting people with everything they need in order to make informed decisions about the next steps. There’s no doubt about it, Rebecca is a people person who relies on her experience, ability to get creative, and getting input from other advisors where necessary to achieve a solutions-focussed approach that just makes sense.


An asset to our team since 2010, Rebecca previously worked for the IRD dealing with matters of liquidation and bankruptcy, and practiced in Property Law at another local firm for five years prior to joining us. She puts her long-term dedication to PRLaw down to the variety of work that comes across her desk and the quality of the people and staff she’s so grateful to be working with.

If she’s not guiding her clients in the right direction, you can find Rebecca spending time with her husband and three children, getting out in the community, and meeting new people. She is the Board chair of St Thomas Aquinas School where her children attend, the Co-president of the local Winton Hockey Club, and a Director for the Central Southland Hospital Charitable Trust which operates the town’s maternity home and medical centre.
