Attorney Rebecca Adams
As a veteran and as an attorney, Rebecca “Becky” Adams has
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
Law and graduated with Pro Bono Distinction for her extensive public service.
She also edited the Stanford Journal of Law, Business, & Finance and
served as the Communications Director for the Stanford Law Veterans Organization.
She earned her bachelor’s degree at the U.S. Naval Academy, graduating
with a degree in History with Merit.
Upon graduating from the Naval Academy, she served two sea tours: the first
one as a Weapons Officer aboard the U.S.S. Rushmore (LSD-47) from July
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.
