Striving to preserve civility and respect during the divorce process, Ms. Harrington educates her clients about the legal process, working closely with them to ensure they understand their options and rights so to empower them in making the best decisions for the future health of their family. Her goal is to serve each client individually, striving to find real-life workable solutions for the families she serves, realizing that a marriage might be over but a family still stands.
Having practiced domestic relations exclusively for nearly a decade, Whitney Harrington offers clients a skillful blend of trial and courtroom experience with a cultivated understanding of what will work best for each family in each specific case.
Sometimes, the best approach requires taking the decision-making power out of the judge’s hands and squarely putting it back into the hands of clients, those who know what their families need the most, in mediation.
