About Rebecca DeVincent, Senior Litigation Attorney

From an early age, Richmond divorce lawyer Rebecca DeVincent knew she wanted to find a way to give back to her community and help other people. It was how she was raised, coming from a family where many of her family members served others in the health and military fields.

In Ms. DeVincent’s third year of law school, she was selected to serve as a student attorney with the West Virginia University College of Law Child & Family Advocacy Clinic, which focuses on family and medical-related issues. That’s when she started to find her calling.

“That experience definitely sparked my passion for family law because it gave me an avenue to use my education and skills to focus on helping families during such difficult times in their lives,” Ms. DeVincent said.

Ms. DeVincent takes great pride in her preparedness, and along with that comes making sure each of her clients knows what to expect during each stage of their family law case.

“I believe honesty and knowledge of the process make going through such a stressful process a little bit easier,” she said.

In divorce, families are irrevocably changed, and there is never a cookie-cutter solution. Ms. DeVincent’s goal with each case is to ensure that her client gets the best-case scenario for their family.

To achieve that scenario, Ms. DeVincent encourages each of her clients to be as honest and forthcoming from the outset of their case.

“Because of that, a client needs to be prepared to give me all of the information necessary to be the best advocate for them,” Ms. DeVincent said. “Sometimes, what a client thinks is a small and insignificant fact can actually make a huge difference to their case.”

Ms. DeVincent is licensed in Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
