A+ experience – Thank you Whitney
I recently hired Whitney for a renovation project in my home. We ran into issues with the vendor and Whitney took over the case. I’ve used Westlake on several occasions but this was the first time working with Whitney. Her communication was professional and precise. She explained everything upfront and her practice is ethical. There are many attorneys out there that are dishonest and try to nickel and dime you for everything. I can assure you Whitney is not one of them. Overall she is the best attorney I have ever worked with, her service is outstanding. I would highly recommend Whitney and I will definitely use her again.

Timely, thorough assistance, within budget
I contacted Whitney for assistance with disruptive neighboring tenants who harrassed a work crew and refused to move their vehicle to permit tree trimming. The tree posed a hazard to multiple properties. Whitney wrote a concise, factual letter describing the substandard behavior of the tenants and disclaiming any liability on my part if the tree should fall on and damage the tenant's vehicle or rental property. The letter was sent to the landlord with a deadline for response and Whitney followed up by phone with the landlord. She accomplished all of this in an hour, adhering to her initial estimate for the work. The next attempt at tree-trimming was successful.

The right Choice
Whitney did an amazing job helping me to adopt my two boys. I've dealt with other law firms before and always felt them to be cold and transactional. Whitney and her firm are the exact opposite. They truly care while at the same time are experts in their field.

Whitney Larlee Lawrimore : across the board she is tops. I have hired firms in various states, she is by far the most thorough.
“Whitney has helped me with several issues over the years. Each time she is knowledgeable, thorough, and compassionate. I highly recommend her services.”

Did a great job!
I went to Whitney for my estate planning and she did a great job. She took the time to figure out my needs and helped me through the very daunting process. In the end, it wasn't as bad as I thought and I shouldn't have put it off. She was great!

Highly recommend
Originally hired Whitney about employee/contract issues and she is very knowledgable and her response time to questions is quick. We continue to use Whitney on retainer and have worked with two other lawyers in this firm have been extremely satisfied.
