Whitney Whitson

Associate Attorney

Boulder Divorce Attorney Whitney Whitson Boulder divorce attorney Whitney Whitson finds that practicing domestic relations law is a good fit for her personality. Although it is challenging trying to help clients through one of the toughest experiences of their life, it means a lot to her that she is able to share some of their burden during such a difficult time.

The trait Ms. Whitson takes the most pride in, and the one that aids her most in her career, is her preparedness.

“You can never be too prepared,” she said. “I find that my level of preparedness frequently sets me apart from other, even more experienced, family law attorneys. Preparedness includes preparing my client for what he can expect from the outset of the case, and how he can build his case to achieve the results he desires.”

Of course, that’s not to say there won’t be ups and downs in every family law case, but Ms. Whitson is ready for those swings and crafts her approach depending on each individual scenario and her client’s personal needs.

“I am a flexible attorney and I am guided by my client’s goals,” she said. “I do not apply a one-size-fits-all approach to my practice, as every family and individual is different. I place a great deal of emphasis on not only the end result my client seeks, but also the manner he prefers we go about it.”
