Rebecca Gilliland joined Beasley Allen as a law clerk in November 2010 and a lawyer in October 2012. She is currently working in our firm’s Consumer Fraud & Commerical Litigation Section on cases related to Average Wholesale Pricing (AWP) / Medicaid Fraud litigation, which seeks to recover millions of dollars lost by state Medicaid agencies as a result of fraudulent price reporting by the nation’s largest drug manufacturers. Rebecca also is currently involved in several class actions, including claims against Angie’s List, ACE American Insurance Company and Aramark, and multidistrict litigation against Blue Cross and Blue Shield.
Rebecca landed in the legal profession in perhaps a less direct way than most. She always planned to follow her father into the medical field, but after completing her commitment to the U. S. Marine Corps with an honorable discharge and pursuing her bachelor’s degree at the University of West Florida, she was not so sure of her path. Rebecca jumped majors – from studio art to accounting – and finally landed in criminal justice, the only legal-related degree her college offered. Upon graduating with her bachelor’s degree, she began pursuing her master’s degree, but switched courses after moving to Montgomery with her husband, who suggested she try law school.
Though she was not always set on being a lawyer, Rebecca has found she cannot imagine doing anything else. She says her favorite part of practicing law is not actually litigation related. Rebecca’s favorite aspect of her job is helping clients talk through their issues, finding that some of those who come to her for legal assistance just need advice and have complaints that can be resolved without a lawsuit. She finds tremendous satisfaction in knowing that she has helped someone find an easy solution for a dispute, and she credits the atmosphere at Beasley Allen for allowing her to do that.
Rebecca says the best part of working for the firm is the culture that allows her to counsel potential clients in how to resolve disputes, even if that does not involve litigation. Ultimately, she believes it is the firm’s goal of striving to help those in the community, whether they be clients or neighbors, that sets it apart.
Rebecca is married to Keith Gilliland, and they make their home in Wetumpka, Alabama. They have four children, Scott, Will, Lilly and Kaden, and attend First Baptist Church in downtown Montgomery. Rebecca is a talented lawyer who does exceptionally good work. She is totally dedicated to serving her clients’ best interests. We are blessed to have her with us.
