Rebecca L. Palmer is a Family & Marital Law attorney practicing in Orlando, FL. Palmer has a broad background in providing intimate legal advice to those in need at a major time of change in their life. When she began her practice 23 years ago she did so to be in the courtroom for general litigation. Then she learned while litigation is sometimes necessary, often the best route is to use the best negotiation techniques possible. As such Palmer focuses on alternative dispute resolution and collaborative law issues for domestic disputes, but knows how and when it is time to go to court.
Palmer’s matters range from difficult divorces, mediation, adoption, complex financial issues, and custody cases. Palmer is a Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator and brings experience in all methods of case resolution, including mediation, arbitration, facilitation, and negotiations to serve individuals as well as businesses. She has extensive experience with complex financial issues as well. Palmer has handled dividing celebrity assets with an eye to the family behind the news and was on the legal team representing Elin Nordegren in her divorce from Tiger Woods.
