Creating a personalized, client-focused experience is Rebecca’s passion, as she deeply resonates with the challenges her clients face and believes in strongly advocating for them to meet their goals.
Now based in the North Bay but serving all of California, Rebecca is dedicated to supporting workers in achieving justice in a wide variety of workplace disputes — including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, negotiation of severance agreements and reasonable accommodation guidance to help employees with disabilities keep their jobs. Rebecca honed her skills working with legendary Bay Area women litigators, including all of the former partners of Levy Vinick Burrell Hyams to develop a guiding compass where the client always comes first. Rebecca served as Of Counsel to LVBH for three years prior to forming Burrell Kagin Law as well as running her own solo practice out of Sonoma County for over a decade.
Earlier in her career, Rebecca advocated for employees in Seattle, Washington, during law school, by representing workers in unemployment appeals at the Unemployment Law Project, nuclear whistleblowers at the Government Accountability Project, and a shareholder whistleblower at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz, Rebecca was a creative and effective job placement specialist at Goodwill Industries of San Francisco, Jobs for Homeless Consortium in Oakland (as a VISTA Volunteer), and West County Community Services, in Sebastopol placing refugees, formerly incarcerated, immigrants, youth, and other at risk populations in jobs and internships. These formative experiences solidified what has become Rebecca’s lifelong passion to advocate for workers.
Rebecca is committed to supporting the legal community and the workers of California through the advocacy work of the California Employment Lawyers Association. Rebecca serves on the Board of the organization, is a Co-Chair of the Mentor Committee, and is a Racial Justice Committee member. She also makes sure to attend Lobby Day every year to work to strengthen the laws protecting California workers.
She also enjoys collaborating with non-profits including Legal Aid of Sonoma County, Legal Aid at Work, and Equal Rights Advocates to further advocate for employees and others.
When she’s not practicing law Rebecca is gardening, spending time with family and friends, serving as a Board member of Petaluma Educational Foundation, traveling, reading, and cooking.
