Rebecca (she/her) is passionate about providing effective advocacy and representation to all those charged with criminal offences.
Before joining Furgiuele Law, Rebecca articled at a prominent criminal defence firm in Toronto. While articling, Rebecca was exposed to a wide variety of high-profile cases, including extradition files, first-degree murders, and multi-complainant sexual assaults.
Rebecca graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2022. During law school, she was involved in the Criminal Law Society and the Mental Health Law Society as an executive. Rebecca also volunteered at Osgoode’s Community and Legal Aid Services Programme (CLASP) in the Criminal Division, and was an editor for the Osgoode Hall Law Journal. During her summers, Rebecca worked at another well-respected criminal defence boutique, assisting on appeals and trials.
Prior to law school, Rebecca completed her Bachelor of Arts with Honours in History at the University of British Columbia. Her passion for history persists, and led her to win the Osgoode Society Prize for Legal History for her judicial biography paper on Supreme Court of Canada Justice Peter Cory, written during her time at law school.
Rebecca is a member of the Law Society of Ontario, the Ontario Bar Association, the Criminal Lawyers’ Association, and Women in Canadian Criminal Defence (WiCCD).
Outside the office, you can find Rebecca unwinding by playing the piano or reading a good fiction book, and staying active by running and rock climbing.
