Attorneys at Law

Rebecca Bruce


I have been practicing law since 1998. My passion as an attorney has always been on building families through adoption.  I began limiting my practice to adoption matters in the fall of 2000. Since that time, I have become an adoptive mother myself, four times over.  Obviously, my family experienced four successful adoption journeys (through private, foster parent and agency situations).  Not so obvious is that we also have experienced failed adoptions, so I have had personal experiences which make me very empathetic towards those that find themselves faced with a failed adoption.

What each of my four children have added to my life has more than made up for the pain experienced through failed adoption situations  I have three sons and a daughter. They are each a blessing and a miracle!  They also keep me busy as a mother!

In February of 2008, I became a Member (a/k/a "Fellow") of the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys, a great group of attorneys across the nation who have achieved distinction in the area of adoption.  This organization has proved to be a great resource to my practice, and I highly recommend that anyone who is looking for an attorney to assist them in an adoption seek out an attorney associated with this organization.  You can access the Member Directory at or click on the picture below.
