review for Rachael Whitaker
Rachael is an excellent lawyer. She goes above and beyond to help you. She is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She made a difficult process so much easier. I never had to wait long for her to find answers to my questions. I felt very confidant in the outcome of my case because she was on my side.

Highly recommend! Flawless attorney!
I highly recommend you work with Rachael Whitaker! She worked through my divorce process with me. She was professional, experienced, honest and guided me through the complexity in a very clear, simple manner. She was a flawless attorney and I'll recommend her to all my friends!

Excellent Lawyer & Well Versed in Family Practice
Rachael was very professional and very organized when it came to my case. I hired her on 2 separate occasions and both times I felt like my interests were always top priority. She was very good at explaining the Law and never got my hopes up to win or lose my case. She merely gave me the facts of my case and then related it to my case. There were a few issues we were going through in court that were not, and did not, fall in my favor and she was very clear about that. I was not mad at the outcome because I feel she set the right expectation from the beginning. She is very honest (which is a title that is not usually associated with attorneys), punctual for court dates and always responded to my emails in 24 to 48 hours, not including weekends, and always returned voicemails that I left. I would recommend her services to anyone seeking legal help in Family Law. I have already referred one other person since and she had the same great experience as I did.

Couldn't be any better
I hired Rachael Whitaker to help me with my divorce. It was a scary and daunting process. My former spouse got an attorney and boldly lied about my nature and the nature of our separation, coming after me for more money than I had and took me right to court. Rachael was expert in dealing with my case- Incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and tactful. She represented me better than I could ask for, and my former spouse didn't get a single extra penny from me. I could not recommend her more!

Rachael Has My Back!
I hired Rachael to help me get sole custody of my newborn son it was a very unique and difficult case compared to other custody cases I’m not going into details about my case but I can say without a doubt if I did not find Rachael I might not have my son with me today! she went above and beyond the normal duties of an attorney she had heart and knew my son belonged with me! being a single father the task was not going to be easy, Rachael took the rains she was always their for me would always answer my phone calls, emails and updated I and my family along the way Rachael is a wonderful person to work with I knew she had my back and I was confident with her ability just not as attorney but as a humane being wanting to help me and my son live the rest of our lives together with that said she did amazing things and I and my son are home together the bond is unbreakable “we thank you Rachael Whitaker”
