Rebecca Geller is an award-winning attorney, a philanthropist, a trailblazer, and a passionate advocate for equality and human rights. Rebecca is also a devoted wife, mom to three young kids + 2 dogs, and community leader.
While working as a corporate lawyer for an AmLaw 100 firm, Rebecca witnessed brilliant women fleeing the profession because big law firm partners showed disregard for attorneys’ lives outside the firm. As the mother of a baby and toddler at the time, Rebecca knew there had to be a better way to run a law firm that enabled women to be moms and successful lawyers. She also knew it was time to stop making women fit into work environments that were traditionally defined by men. Rebecca didn’t see an alternative model in existence—so she created one.
In 2011, Rebecca formed The Geller Law Group with a business model that makes sense for working parents and embraces new roles both women and men are taking in their homes and communities.
Bringing attention to the fact that attorneys have families and lives outside of the office, Rebecca and The Geller Law Group were profiled by The New York Times in 2015 for the firm’s innovative approach to maintaining work/life balance. The firm also has been profiled in the DC Bar Magazine for reinventing the law firm model and has twice been listed among the Best 100 Places to Work in the Greater Washington Area by the Washington Business Journal.
