About Rebecca Wade

Attorney Biography

Rebecca Janet Wade is an Alexandria, Virginia native, graduating from Mount Vernon High School in 2000. After graduating from the University of Richmond School of Law, Ms. Wade worked for more than five years at the Public Defender’s Office for Fauquier and Rappahannock Counties. There she represented clients charged with a wide range of offenses from traffic offenses to serious felonies such as aggravated malicious wounding, drug distribution, and sex crimes. Ms. Wade has tried over two dozen jury trials and hundreds of bench trials. Additionally, Ms. Wade has experience handling appeals and has appeared numerous times at the Court of Appeals of Virginia and the Supreme Court of Virginia, earning victories in both Courts.

Since leaving the Public Defender’s Office, Ms. Wade has also focused her attention on family law. She represents in cases of divorce, child custody and visitation, child support, and alimony. Her work defending the mother of a young child left in a hot car seat received considerable media attention.

Ms. Wade is also passionate about defending those charged with and representing victims of domestic violence in both the criminal and civil arenas. In that area, she has extensive experience focusing on the laws involving physical abuse, assault, and injury, emotional abuse, threats of violence and more.

Ms. Wade volunteers with the Legal Aid Justice Center as a Pro Bono Lawyer representing children in juvenile court petitioning for Special Immigrant Juvenile Status.

She speaks fluent Spanish and has represented over 100 native Spanish speakers, helping them through the legal process in their native language and is knowledgeable about the immigration consequences of any criminal convictions.
