About me

Tara L. Whitaker is a family law and divorce attorney with a practice located in downtown Birmingham.  Tara is known for her dedication to her clients, her hard work and her professionalism both in and out of the courtroom.  Tara is further known for her adaptive nature as a fierce competitor to obtain the best possible result for her clients.  Tara is a savvy negotiator and a quick thinker, which helps her have such a competitive edge in fighting for her client’s rights.  Although Tara may be fierce in the courtroom, she develops a trusting relationship with her clients and goes the extra mile in making sure her client not only feels comfortable in speaking with her, but also ensuring that each client is treated as a top priority.  Tara understands that family law related matters, such as divorce, child custody, visitation, alimony, etc. are very sensitive in nature and her goal is to not only achieve the best result possible, but to also relieve some of the stress her clients may be experiencing.
