Belleville divorce attorney Penelope K. Westwater knows firsthand how messy divorces can be. She loves family law because as an attorney, she can significantly improve someone’s life, bringing order out of chaos while utilizing creative solutions to real problems.
She also enjoys the diversity that family law offers. It is the only area of law that allows an attorney to deal with other issues like copyright, business valuation, guardianship or estate planning all in the same case.
“Life is never dull as a family law litigator,” Ms. Westwater said.
Ms. Westwater really cares about the best outcome for the client.
“I work hard and use all of my knowledge and experience to tailor craft a case specific to the needs of clients,” she said.
She is also a straight shooter, which means telling the hard truth sometimes. After assessing the situation, Ms. Westwater educates clients about options in a case and the risk of various courses of actions.
“I make a collaborative decision with a client about the course of the case,” she said. “I want a client to know what to expect throughout the litigation process.”
