PERSONAL

Rebecca grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas and graduated from Richard King High School. Rebecca attended Texas A&M University for her undergraduate degree and is proud to be a Fightin’ Texas Aggie!  She is married to Andrew Carrillo, who is originally from Mesquite, Texas and is also a graduate of Texas A&M University. Rebecca is consistently recognized by her peers for her legal expertise.  Rebecca is a strong litigator and is not afraid to go to court and her peers know this about her. She has handled hundreds of cases ranging from the negotiation of a high asset prenuptial agreements to the handling of contentious custody cases. What is unique about Rebecca is that she personally oversees all aspects of your case. You are not just “another file” to Rebecca. She truly cares about protecting what is most important, your children and your financial security. Rebecca’s clients respect and appreciate her communication skills and her client centered approach to representation. As one of the best San Antonio divorce attorneys around, Rebecca is not afraid to go trial if your case needs that but she also understands that often the best outcomes are achieved in negotiations or by utilizing other methods outside the courtroom to resolve your case. This is why Rebecca is particularly passionate about Collaborative Divorces because it protects families from the brutality of court.  When Rebecca is not in court or working on cases, she enjoys traveling with her husband, snorkeling, and taking her dog Farley to the park. Farley also comes to the office on a daily basis with Rebecca. We consider him the mascot of the office. So, be prepared to be greeted by a happy and lively Boston Terrier when you come to the office.
