Attorney Profile

The founder of the Law Offices of Rebecca Martin, Rebecca Martin divides her practice between family law and estate planning matters. From her firm's offices in Kansas City, Missouri, her clients come from the greater metropolitan area, and she is admitted to practice before all Missouri state courts.

In her estate planning practice, Ms. Martin regularly prepares and reviews wills, revocable and irrevocable trusts, advance health care directives, and financial and health care powers of attorney. She also provides advice and counsel for those clients who wish to avoid the expensive and at times lengthy probate process. Ms. Martin's family law caseload largely encompasses the representation of people whose marriages are coming to an end and who are thus having to deal with such divorce-related issues as the division of complex marital assets and debts, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. A forceful advocate for her clients in the courtroom, she is also an adept negotiator, and she often helps them reach an accord on some of these matters through that alternative dispute resolution method. In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Martin also has experience in paternity establishment and disputes, and she assists people who are seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting orders.

Majoring in philosophy, Ms. Martin attended The University of Texas at Austin as an undergraduate, and she received a Bachelor of Arts in 2003. She then pursued her legal education at the University of Kansas School of Law, and she served on the University of Kansas Law Review before being awarded her Juris Doctor in 2006. Ms. Martin opened her own firm in 2011, and she has received a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.
