BIOGRAPHY

Rebekah Parker concentrates her practice in complex litigation involving real estate, construction, partnership and agency disputes, consumer fraud, breach of fiduciary duty and professional malpractice.  She also has extensive class action defense experience.  She has worked on trials in both state and federal court in Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami and Philadelphia.

Rebekah does extensive pro bono work representing students in due process proceedings.  In 2008 and 2009, she won a 5-day administrative hearing, securing special education services for a student, which was affirmed by the Ninth Circuit.  Prior to joining Novack and Macey, Rebekah was an associate at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart Oliver & Hedges LLP, having practiced in both their Los Angeles and New York City offices.

In 2015, Rebekah was selected as an Illinois “Emerging Lawyer” by Law Bulletin Publishing Company. Emerging Lawyers are those who are age 40 or under or have been practicing law for 10 years or less. Less than two percent of all lawyers in the State receive this distinction.  In 2008, she was selected for inclusion in the list of Southern California Rising Stars and, in 2013, 2014 and 2015, she was selected as an Illinois Rising Star.

Rebekah is a Board member of the Next Generation and a member of the Lawyers’ Committee, both of which support the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.  She is a member of the Harvard Law School Women’s Alliance of Chicago and the Chicago Council of Lawyers, a public interest bar association. Rebekah is also a member of the Urban Land Institute, a multidisciplinary real estate forum.
