I have had Whitney handle my divorce & post-divorce cases for several years now. She is very ethical and always focuses on my children's well being. She is committed to family law and understands the nuances of my case. Her strategies, in the long run, prove out to be the right ones and successful ones. Whitney is very responsive with questions and gives it to you straight. If you hire Whitney, your case is in very good hands, especially with a difficult case as mine was.

I hired Mrs. Chelnik to assist in my divorce settlement. With children involved and an ex that was not properly prepped for what was to come in the divorce proceedings, Whitney was able to deftly handle every aspect of the case. She is a complete professional was able to handle my case with confidence and ease. Most importantly she was able to listen and advocate for my wishes, set my expectations properly, and humble me when necessary.
She's a great advocate, highly recommended.

Whitney Chelnik is the BEST! I went through 2 attorneys during my divorce that i had negative experiences with. So when i was looking was taking my ex wife back to court to have my alimony stopped i did much more research for the right attorney. I found Whitney, and i could not be happier. She is compassionate, super intelligent, and as tough as it gets in the court room. Her follow up was exceptional. Any one who has been through these kinds of things, know the anxiety that goes along with waiting to hear back from your attorney. I never experienced that with Whitney! Every time i called or emailed i would always hear back from her that day. Its an easy decision if your looking for an attorney to be on your side and work with you, its Whitney Chelnik.
