Whitney S. Harrington said practicing family law came naturally to her since she feels more comfortable working directly with clients, rather than in other areas of the law where contact with people is limited.
However, having to deal with the emotional and psychological stress of divorce is tough enough for men, especially when combined with the intimidation of trying to navigate the court system during such a sensitive and turbulent time, she said.
“That’s why I strive to be your partner in the process, guiding you through the legal aspects of divorce as smoothly as possible, so that you can move on and start the next chapter in your life,” Ms. Harrington said.
One client of Ms. Harrington’s was able to start the next chapter of his life with primary custody of his children, despite his wife being a stay-at-home mom.
“Because the mother had been a stay-at-home mom, she had initially been favored in the parenting schedule,” Ms. Harrington said. “But we were able to show that it was in the children’s best interest to be with their father.”
