Recipient of AVVO’s “2019 CLIENT’S CHOICE AWARD”
Attorney Cheryl R. Whitley has over ten years of law enforcement experience. She has served as a police officer; special operations officer; police detective and narcotics investigator. This professional experience from “the other side” has given her a thorough understanding of how crimes are prosecuted and gives her THE EDGE in aggressively defending your case.
The Scales of Justice is not always balanced and Cheryl has witnessed many forms of injustice in a system supposedly designed to protect the innocent. Martin Luther King, Jr. said “Injustice Anywhere is a threat to Justice Everywhere.” Witnessing injustice first hand struck a burning desire within Cheryl to obtain her law degree so that she might be that voice to fight for the rights of the oppressed.
Cheryl’s unwavering desire to fight for justice led her to the infamous Johnnie Cochran Law Firm where she did her internship. Upon graduation Cheryl was hired by the Cochran Firm-St. Louis as a Law Clerk. For almost three years Cheryl offered her expertise in proper police procedure and in civil rights cases. During that period Cheryl made many successful arguments in civil rights cases on behalf of the clients.
Attorney Cheryl R. Whitley is “NOW ON YOUR SIDE” ready to vigorously defend your case.
