Amazing attorney!
Caring, kind, honest and helpful!!! This is the attorney I will hire when and if I need one! She walked me through fear and confusion. She explained things to me and made a game plan with me. She did not try to fear monger me into hiring her prematurely! Much respect for this attorney. She has also allowed me to contact her and ask questions. Thanks Andrea!

Andrea represented me in a child support case. Once the State of California was involved my support payments tripled! With Andrea's experience and her teams great forensic research my Child Support payments returned back to what I had originally been paying! There is no doubt that Andrea Whitehill made a significant change in my life for the better...

Great Attorney!
Very dedicated, honest, and knowledgeable about divorce and family law. Attorney Andrea Whitehill went above and beyond to get the job done. She exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend having her in your corner going through something hard as a divorce or custody battle.

Bankruptcy Help
Facing Divorce and Bankruptcy at the same time was one of the most difficult times of my life and Andrea made the journey less painful for me, listening to my story, answering all my questions and making me feel better about the whole situation.

what a GREAT attorney and staff
After consulting with various attorneys I knew after my consultation with Andrea Whitehill that I would immediately retain her services. She took her time with me and never made me feel rushed, answered all of my questions, provided me with loads of information and help. Throughout my divorce/custody battle, she was there with me EVERY step of the way with great success. I have never dealt with an attorney that is not only as respectful and professional as Andrea Whitehill but she is also compassionate and understanding. The office has always welcomed my emails and phone calls and have always attended to me right away. Janine works in the office and is such an asset to the team at the Law Office of Andrea Whitehill! 5 out of five stars!!! Highly recommend!

DONT DO IT,
She’s only out for the money. Comes across nice in the beginning but things change fast! She refuses to try and settle with the only party. She only wants to go to trial where she will take all your money! After draining me of every dime I had I found a VERY COMPETENT helpful attorney who helped me and my x settle out of court. Then after we sold our home and I went to pick up the check Andre refused to sign off claiming I owed her money. I couldn’t get the check from the house until I paid her an additional 25,000 on top of the thousands I had already paid her, She’s a money shark. RUN THE OTHER WAY!
