Client Testimonials:

Rachel is nothing short of awesome to work with and very sympathetic to our lack of knowledge of the legal processes :-) Rachel is definitely a professional who knows how to get the issues we presented to her resolved quickly and efficiently.
Client, June 2021
Your thorough work throughout this case, as well as your personal support and encouragement while I navigated and waited through the process was more than I could have hoped for from my attorney. Once again, thank you so very much for your honesty and integrity. I have appreciated you and your firm since the beginning, and I have no doubt that all those who have worked and learned under your tutelage will go on to be wonderful attorneys and wonderful people.

Rachel was my first experience dealing with a lawyer. Feeling scared and lost when I entered her office, I found her to be helpful, friendly, easy to talk too and she quickly settled my nerves. She explained the process step by step in an easy to understand format and answered all my questions I had along the way. She was responsive to my phone calls, emails and always available to answer questions. She did a good job at keeping me calm and not panicked throughout the whole process especially when I had to be in the same room with my now ex-husband. In my case she was able to help me lessen my alimony length and payment and move on with my life.
Client, June 2018
As an attorney facing a divorce I knew that a critical factor would be the attorney I chose to represent me. I needed someone that would vigilantly represent my interests while at the same time maintaining a professional demeanor when dealing with my wife's attorney. The last thing you want your attorney to do is to alienate your spouse and their attorney, this can lead to a very expensive dissolution and to be counterproductive as to the results that you wish to achieve. Both Sara (paralegal) and Mike embody both of these qualities. Their creative thinking and professional communication of their ideas to my spouse and her attorney led to an amicable resolution of what could have been a nasty court fight. I would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themselves in the difficult situation of getting a divorce. Additionally, they communicated with me regularly and I was kept fully advised and counseled concerning the decisions I had to make during the pendency of the divorce proceedings.

Mr. Whitsitt is very client centered, patient, knowledgeable, and effective. Having a lawyer with 40+ years of legal experience is invaluable, especially with handling a interstate family law case.
