Attorney Rebecca A. Olla was raised in Austin, Texas. She obtained her undergraduate degree from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania and her Law Degree from the University of Texas School of Law in Austin.
Before joining The Bishop Law Firm, Rebecca worked for the Texas State Office of the Attorney General and the U.S. District Court of Southern New York.
After working for the government (by the people), Rebecca refocused her practice to represent clients in federal appeals in U.S. District Court (for the people).
Through her prior legal experience, Rebecca has learned that lawyers are needed to ensure positive outcomes for their clients and has witnessed first-hand what can happen when a person tries to represent themselves in the court system.
Rebecca is a champion for those injured through no fault of their own. From children to adults, injured victims need a voice, especially when their injury was caused by someone else’s negligent actions.
Her passion is to be the voice of the injured and works daily to ensure the best results possible are attained for her clients.
Rebecca has lived in Texas, Pennsylvania, New York, and North Carolina, but will readily admit that North Carolina is the best place she has lived!
In her travels, she has learned to speak fluent German and has raised six children, Naomi, Rina, Reuben, Yossi, Benyamin and Daniel (four boys!). She currently lives in Durham, plays the piano & violin and loves to garden.
Rebecca handles Personal Injury, Car Accident Injury and Workers’ Compensation cases for The Bishop Law Firm.
