Rebecca Grosser believes it is important for everyone to have a strong and aggressive advocate on their side. She has believed this since an early age as a result of her parent’s interest in Hill Street Blues and Law & Order, which motivated her to become a criminal defense attorney.
Since 1997, Rebecca has worked hard to represent thousands of individuals in St. Louis – each with a different background and unique legal situation involving alleged crimes such as misdemeanors, sex offenses, serious felonies, murder in the first degree, and others. In many of those cases a negotiated agreement was the best solution for her clients, but in others she zealously represented her clients all the way through jury trials. Her experience working as both an assistant prosecuting attorney and as a defense attorney gives her unique insight into the criminal justice process and allows her to provide her clients with unique solutions to help them through the process.
As a result of her desire to help people going through tough times, she expanded her practice to include individuals that have been mistreated by their employers in and around St. Louis. Specifically, she helps clients that have lost their job obtain severance agreements or service letters. She also helps individuals pursue appropriate recourse after being wrongfully discriminated against in their place of employment.
Additionally, as a result of the substantial negotiation experience gained from criminal and civil litigation cases Rebecca realized she could use her negotiation skills to serve as an effective mediator. She obtained additional mediation training and today serves as a meditator and co-meditator to help parties solve their disputes outside of the civil justice system, which is often slow and frustrating.
Rebecca is also a guardian ad litem (GAL) in Missouri and serves as the project director for a SAMHSA grant awarded to the Jefferson County Treatment Courts. She is a member of the adjunct faculty at Lindenwood University teaching health care law classes to undergraduate students. When she is not working, she likes to read, hike, watch movies, cheer on the St. Louis Blues and Cardinals, and spend time with her family.
