been committed to fighting for the good of those under her protection.
Previously a commercial litigator, Becky has worked for some of the most
renowned law firms in the U.S., including a well-known trial boutique
firm in Houston and a global powerhouse litigation firm in Washington,
D.C. She has clerked for some of the most important legal offices in the
nation, including the California Attorney General’s Office and the
Securities and Exchange Commission in New York City.
As a born-and-bred Californian, Becky earned her law degree at Stanford

2007-2009. She led a division of 18 sailors in the Arabian Gulf, contributing
to the global War on Terror. On her second tour, she coordinated massive
multinational training exercises as an Exercise Planner and Operations
Officer, and trained multinational forces in wartime scenarios and in
providing humanitarian aid.
The nations involved in these exercises included:
- South Korea
In 2012, Becky was released from active duty and decided to pursue her
lifelong dream: law. She enrolled in Stanford shortly after. In her spare
time, Becky has been exploring Houston and enjoying live country music
all over the city. She and her husband cheer on the Navy and Stanford
football teams whenever possible and attend Houston First Baptist Church together.

$2.875M Settlement for Seriously Injured Worker
Our law firm was successful in uncovering the truth in a case where a worker sustained serious crush injuries to his arm and hand. In the end, we reached a favorable settlement of $2,875,000 on our client’s behalf.
After a serious accident left our client with crush injuries to his arm
and hand, he turned to Arnold & Itkin LLP for help. Attorneys Jason
Itkin, Noah Wexler, Ben Bireley, and Rebecca Adam stepped up to represent
the hurt worker, facing a defendant who not only refused to take responsibility,
but denied the incident ever happened. We worked tirelessly to uncover
the truth on behalf of our client and reached a settlement of $2.875M.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $1,435,442.73.
$2.5 Million Settlement Negotiated for Injured Vessel Worker
Arnold & Itkin LLP helped our client secure a multimillion-dollar settlement when he suffered a lower back injury while working aboard a vessel.
Attorneys Jason Itkin, Noah Wexler, and Rebecca Adams recovered $4 million
for our client, who was working as a seaman aboard a vessel. Our client
was injured when he was asked to lift a heavy load without proper support,
causing a disc herniation in his lower back. The injury was severe enough
to require surgery. The defendant settled the case prior to trial, which
was pending in Harris County, Texas.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $1,051,842.70.
$1.1 Million Settlement Obtained for Victim of Multivehicle Truck Accident
Arnold & Itkin negotiated a seven-figure settlement right before trial was scheduled to start, despite the defendant refusing to acknowledge fault.
Attorneys Noah Wexler, Ben Bireley, and Rebecca Adams reached a settlement
for a man who suffered serious back and neck injuries in a multi-vehicle
accident—one of which was an 18-wheeler. Our client's injuries
demanded multiple surgeries, keeping him from earning a living. Despite
his serious injuries, the defendant downplayed our client's pain and
attempted to shift the blame onto the other vehicles in the accident.
Arnold & Itkin worked right up to the trial to hold the company accountable
for their employee's conduct. Our team's efforts paid off—at
the last minute, the company decided to settle with our client rather
than face a jury. We are proud to have helped our client get the justice
and stability he needed while he recuperates from his injuries.
Attorney's fees and expenses totaled $461,061.89.
Confidential Settlement Achieved for Local Small Business
Arnold & Itkin represented a local business that had been defrauded of their trade secrets, getting them what they were owed.
Attorney Rebecca Adams obtained a sizable settlement for our client in
a business litigation case. Our client, a small, local business, was facing
up against a large company in a David-and-Goliath situation involving
breach of contract, fraud, and misappropriation of trade secrets. The
defendant hired an army of corporate attorneys to protect itself, but
our lawyer still managed to secure what rightfully belonged to our client.
Arnold & Itkin is proud to have helped another local business protect
itself from the bad faith practices of large, impersonal businesses.
