Independence divorce attorney Courtney J. Whiteley decided to practice family law because of her desire to help those in a time of need when their emotions are especially high.
Divorce is often a time of tension and conflict. If someone loses their cool during the process, the result can be disastrous with ramifications that last for years. Ms. Whiteley’s ability to remain calm in the face of tremendous pressure is one of her greatest strengths. Her steady demeanor provides a source of stability for her clients during an otherwise calamitous time.
Ms. Whiteley encourages open communication with her clients. Establishing a strong sense of trust is critical to the attorney-client relationship.
“The relationship is a two-way street,” Ms. Whiteley said. “We both must be able to trust each other. I am the one person you can say anything to, and you will not be judged.”
