The McIlveen Family Law Firm welcomes…

Rebecca Nelson, Director of Operations

Rebecca “Bec” grew up in Gastonia, NC before moving to Virginia where she lived until she moved to Florida to attend law school.

She is a seasoned trial attorney with a wealth of experience as a law firm manager and she’s entrepreneur having started and run her own law firm.  She has represented clients in eighteen counties in North Carolina and appeared in front of at least forty-five different judges.  She has logged thousands of courtroom hours. Her experience in and out of the courtroom makes her the perfect person to mentor and support the attorneys and staff in the legal department of McIlveen Law Firm in the role of Director of Operations.

When she is not practicing law, she enjoys spending time with her wife, Suzanne, and their two children, Olivia and Nate.  Both of their children play sports, and you can find them at their games and activities most weekends.  They also have three furry children: dogs – Scout and Lady, and cat – Jinx.  She is a self-proclaimed foodie who loves exploring new restaurants, especially those that focus on Asian cuisine.  She is also a nomad who loves to travel the world off the beaten path.

Fun fact about Bec: She produced her first short film with friends in Raleigh.

After leaving the Public Defenders Office, she started her own practice with her wife, Bec, and practiced family law. She has an outstanding reputation with the Wake County judges and attorneys.
