  • Amos Matthew Whitney

    Jolie (successfully) wears many hats in her practice in Family Law. Jolie is child-focused, creative and savy when focusing on settlement negotiations; she is technically precise when drafting or editing Retirement Orders; and she is a fierce advocate for her clients when litigation is necessary. Most importantly, Jolie understands her clients' needs and concerns, which allows her to keep her clients informed and calm throughout their particular process.
