Rebecca R. A. Smith

Counsel

Born into a family of veterinarians and a lifelong California native, Rebecca has a deep appreciation for the land, history, and agriculture of California. Rebecca also understands the importance of tenacity and hard work to success: As an undersized freshman, Rebecca fought her way to a spot on UC Davis’s 2003 Division II National Championship-winning rowing team.

Rebecca is a passionate water lawyer with a close connection to her clients and the people and land they serve.

Prior to her time at Downey Brand, Rebecca attended the University of Notre Dame Law School, where in addition to legal skills, she polished her talents as a member of the Notre Dame Women’s Boxing Team and developed an on-going appreciation for Notre Dame football. Now, when Rebecca is away from the office, you’ll find her back home in California, cheering on the Fighting Irish every fall with a glass of wine in hand.
