As a perspective client I was leery of attorneys after previous experience. The staff at The Whitley Law Firm immediately made me feel like a person instead of just a client. After my initial consultation and retainer were taken care of they were on the ball. They were very thorough and attentive to my needs and desires in my case. They listened and recommended the best course of action, took every step with care, caution and sincere concern.
After 5 years of being in the dark with my case they shone the brightest light and gave me the confidence needed to get the results I thought were out of my reach. I researched many attorneys before choosing the Whitley Law Firm and I am glad I did because they went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that I achieved the results I desired in my case. Being in a different state would usually be a daunting feeling for a client but for me it was very straightforward because of the abundance of communication that they provided. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a tough as nails attorney willing to fight for you and the best interest of your child(ren).
Deanna, Shelley, Cait, Lonie and the whole staff made my experience a great one. I appreciate all of their hard work in my case and could nbt be happier with the result in my favor. They are creative, have a great rapport fellow colleagues and take an active interest in their cases all while maintaining a high standard of professionalism throughout the whole process.

When I made the decision to divorce my ex-wife I knew I'd need a child custody lawyer because my children were my priority. Yes, I could have searched for just a Divorce Lawyer but I knew my ex would fight me tooth and nail to leave the state in order to separate me from them. I needed a child custody lawyer who would fight for a father wanting to be equally in his children’s lives. I reached out to several lawyers leaving messages and that’s when a member of Ms. Whitley’s team called me. She easily convinced me to meet with her boss and after the initial sit down I knew Ms. Whitley was the right choice for my life changing event. I explained to Ms. Whitley exactly what I wanted because I had thought the whole process through for quite a while. I just wanted equal rights to my children and she whole heartedly agreed that I deserved exactly that. That being said, divorce isn’t easy and mine was no walk in the park. My ex fought with me as I expected and almost left the state, but Ms. Whitley quickly helped me file the initial paperwork preventing me from losing my children for good. My divorce took place a few months after our initial court filing but my ex drug the whole process out for months on end sending us back to court over and over again. However, Ms. Whitley, her associate and team stood by me through the whole process and I can finally say it’s over. It took time and took money, that’s how divorce works….. But I received exactly what I expected and what I wanted….I have my children 50/50. Thank you Whitley Law Firm.

I want to whole heartily endorse Deanna Whitley and her whole legal team. I came to Deanna with a desperate need to legally change my name and gender. I have a career that I have devoted more than 30 years to and after medically changing my gender I was in a difficult place legally. I was a woman with a male identity. Deanna's team assured me and encouraged me right from the start. It was so much more than just a legal representation, it was Deanna and her whole staff immediately embracing my delima and setting a legal strategy, advise and to correct my problem. Every person I spoke with at the law firm was deeply concerned and actively involved in presenting my case as soon as possible. The compassion, care and kindness combined with the excellent legal skills resulted in my problem being resolved in a very timely manner
