Rebecca E. NeubauerAttorney
Rebecca Neubauer knew from a young age that her goal in life was to advocate for people facing challenging situations.
Starting in 2012, as a full-time law student, Rebecca had the opportunity to clerk at other Chicago-based law firms focusing her work on catastrophic personal injury matters. Rebecca also clerked for the Honorable Elizabeth M. Budzinski, Cook County Circuit Court, where she prepared judicial opinions on civil cases. These experiences solidified Rebecca’s passion for helping those who have suffered injustices and further inspired her to become a personal injury attorney.
Rebecca graduated from Chicago-Kent College of Law, making Dean’s List throughout her law school tenure and completing three courses in Trial Advocacy. She earned her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in political science with a minor in Middle Eastern studies.
Rebecca actively fund-raises and volunteers through the Young Lawyers Group of the Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago (JUF) where she was recently appointed to the 2017 executive board and serves as Co-Chair for the Social Action Committee. Comprised of lawyers engaged in the Chicago legal community, the Young Lawyer Group participates in a mentor/ mentee program with law students, holds social and educational programs, as well as networking and volunteering opportunities for lawyers. Whether it is serving families at the Uptown Ccafe through an anti-hunger program or volunteering at a nursing home, Rebecca and her committee are committed to bringing dignity and hope to those less fortunate in the community. Additionally, JUF’s Community Legal Services Program provides free legal assistance to those in need. Last year alone the JUF Lawyers Division raised over $10 million dollars to provide human services to people in need in Chicago, across the country and world.
