Hire Whitney. You’re welcome.
In the beginning of my proceedings it was revealed my ex had hired an attorney from a neighboring county who was charging ridiculous fees that he justified by saying he believed the divorce would be “contentious.” I did not expect that to be the case, but holy $&@; was I wrong! And of course that attorney thought I should be responsible for paying him as well.
My ex spent the next several months asking for everything under the sun. That was accompanied by multiple threats, Facebook posts, you name it. As this was my first (and hopefully only) divorce, I freaked out on multiple occasions. I did not know what to expect. I feared that after 16 years of seeing them every day that I would now only see my children every other weekend. I feared I wouldn’t be able to financially support myself. I didn’t know up from down.
The good news is, Whitney did know. She knew everything and was more than just an attorney, she became a calming presence that I desperately needed. Whitney sat me down. She explained the process. She showed me the calculations of best and worst case scenarios of the amount I would have to pay for maintenance and child support. Her knowledge not only helped me keep my head up, but it also enabled me to take the high road and not have to sink to my ex’s level.
Perhaps the most comforting part was knowing Whitney was familiar with my case inside and out. My ex’s large law firm, however, was another story. They seemingly traded her off and had new associates show up to court that really had no clue where we were or how we got there. When Whitney and the opposing attorney stood before the judge regarding who would be responsible for the other party’s legal fees, the judge asked why my ex chose to hire a more expensive firm from a neighboring, larger county. The opposing attorney shrugged his shoulders and said it was a referral. Whitney quickly added that it was solely because my ex was convinced this attorney would get her the maximum payday and I would have to pay his fees so it didn’t matter to her what they charged. In the end, I only had to pay around 10% of the other attorney’s fees.
If you are reading this, it must mean you are about to go through, or you are contemplating, a divorce. I feel for you because it sucks. Don’t let anyone tell you differently. I could go on and on with multiple examples of how great and reassuring it was to have Whitney represent me. Unfortunately, this review limits the number of words I can type. But also know this. Your search is over. Hire Whitney and thank me later. It will still suck, but Whitney will make it as pain free as she possibly can. Her professionalism is unmatched, you’ll have no worries of your personal business being leaked around our small community. Whitney also has a big heart and she will work her a$$ off to give you peace of mind. Best of luck.
