I am a 3rd generation attorney. I have lived in Murfreesboro, Tennessee my entire life and representing my community is what I take pride in. I studied Criminal Justice in college and went to have an internship at the 16th Judicial District's District Attorney's Office in the spring of 2008. Afterward, I became a paralegal for Sonya W. Henderson and remained her paralegal for over 4 years while I attended law school. After graduating law school, I took interest in practicing criminal defense, family law, juvenile, and personal injury. I love my clients and want to make sure that they get the absolutely best result.

Step-Parent Adoption
Whitney recently helped us with our step-parent adoption and we couldn’t have had a better experience! She was thorough, super nice, and communicated the process to us so well. All of our questions were answered and the whole process went smoother and faster than we could’ve ever imagined! Now my husband has officially adopted our oldest two boys and our family feels complete. Thank you, Whitney, for helping us through this exciting new page in our story!

Highly recommend!
Whitney came highly recommended to my family and she did not disappoint. We got in with a consult fast and she began the adoption process right away. She was very explanatory and helped ease my nerves with everything. On adoption day, she was a joy and took pictures with us. Seriously, such a great person that really cares.

Awesome attorney
Ms. Raque is a wonderful attorney. She is so knowledgeable of the law and works hard to get favorable results. I recommend her because she's always reachable and returns calls immediately. There are very few attorneys who work as hard as she does

Highly Professional, Skilled, Personable, & Trustworthy
More than likely, if you need an attorney for a matter, there's also a great deal of stress involved. That's where Whitney comes in! While she cannot alleviate all the issues you may be facing during this stressful time, knowing that you have an experienced, highly attentive, personable, and trustworthy attorney on your side will help you feel more confident in and out of the courtroom. She will work tirelessly on your case to help you get the best possible outcome & her knowledge and experience will help guide you through every step of your journey. If you're looking for an attorney who's going to communicate regularly with you and treat you like you matter to them, she is your person! Don't let a difficult time become more taxing because you don't have the right representation; instead, I recommend you hire Whitney and help to put your mind at ease

Best Attorny!
Are you looking for an attorney that actually listens to you, does what you, her client, wants, and doesn’t treat you like another payday? Well, look no further! Mrs. Raque, was able to listen to what I wanted, and accomplish my goals! She will advise you which direction is best; however, doesn’t push you into that direction. She follows you! She does what you desire! Very satisfied with my case, Mrs. Raque, and her staff, whom by the way was just as equally as helpful (thanks Kipley)!

Amazing Lawyer
Whitney was amazing at representing my case from start to finish. She really fought what was best for myself and my children. Not only was she professional, but she was also very down to earth and kind which created so much trust. She was very organized and prompt in everything she did. I highly recommended her!

Awesome lawyer and person
Whitney Raque is the best lawyer I’ve ever had. She has helped me out tremendously, not only once but multiple times. She is the fist person I call for any kind of legal representation I may need. The best part is she never once judged me for my charges she’s helped me with, and that is very important to me. I trust her 110% with my cases. I will recommend her services to anybody who may need them. On a scale of 1-10 she’s a 20.

Extremely Professional
If you have a difficult ex who has a "make me do it" attitude then I suggest you hire Whitney Henderson Raque. Mrs. Raque is one of the few lawyers that I have who truly does what she sets out to do.I feel 110% as though the fees that I paid Mrs. Raque was well worth it. I will not use any other attorney besides Mrs. Raque. Mrs. Raque has truly "earned" her money and I could not be more pleased with the outcome.

Absolutely the best!
I came to Whitney after going to Court for a VOP. The DAs had offered me to serve 14 days. I sought representation after. She was able to explain all my options, good and bad. She was ultimately able to cut my time in half. I'm very pleased with her representation and would definitely use her again.

Great Criminal Attorney!
Whitney has represented one of my family members in the past. She was very attentive and actually listened. She knew her stuff, was a bulldog, and didn't sugar coat anything. I'd definitely refer her!
