Client testimonials

Whitney Smith is a great lawyer. She was very professional throughout my case and it was evident that she always went above and beyond to serve in my best interest, which helped alleviate a lot of the stress for me. She was very patient in her explaining and was very supportive to whatever questions I had. I was extremely impressed with her work and negotiation skills! It was incredible my case was resolved on my first case conference, thanks Whitney! I would highly recommend Whitney to anyone who needs representation in family law.

Navigating a separation is fraught with so many challenges it can leave you feeling anxious, vulnerable and frustrated. Initially I had representation and that first experience was worrisome. I doubted that my lawyer was helping me. In an attempt to finally resolve the matter, I came to Casey Vandeputte and his team. From the moment I walked through the door and met the staff, everything felt...right. Amidst feelings of worry and doubt, I began to feel a new sense of confidence. Each person on the team I spoke with added a layer of kindness and friendliness which makes a stressful occasion much easier to manage. But this was just the start. I can't really say thank you enough Whitney,  but I thought this might be a start.

Having Whitney Smith work out a settlement on my behalf was very advantageous. She was able to bring our matter to a favorable conclusion which saved us a considerable amount of money. Thank you. Signed Grateful

Whitney Smith is an excellent lawyer, who effectively and creatively uses the law and facts to obtain the best possible result for her clients. She is smart, sharp and personable, which makes her well-respected by her colleagues, clients and other legal professionals. In addition to her strong legal skills, her dedication, passion and empathy set her apart. She is committed to making a difference in her clients’ lives and does so successfully on every case. I wholeheartedly recommend Whitney.

A very special thank you to Whitney Smith. Changing lawyers and retaining Whitney was by far the best choice I could have made. Whitney was very knowledgeable and is not afraid to tell it like it is. Because of this, better strategies were put in place. On the first court appearance, Whitney was able to help me and my very difficult ex spouse come to an agreement and settle out of court. On top of being knowledgeable, Whitney was very polite and understanding and even extended a helping hand in providing additional useful resources to follow up on for after court was finished. I consider it to have been a great privilege and her services much appreciated. Should I ever need help again in the future, I know where my one stop shop will be. Thank you Whitney....I can breathe again!!

“Whitney Smith listens and she cares about her clients. It is refreshing to trust a lawyer.”

“Whitney Smith has been in charge of my case and I could not be happier. A few weeks after hiring the firm I have gotten access to see my children to now having them overnight every other weekend. Any time I need to get in touch with Whitney or have any questions within hours I hear back from her. So glad to have Whitney on my side.”
