What Our
Clients are Saying

Testimonial 1

Should the unfortunate day ever come when you receive a letter from the Disciplinary Committee, Kaylin is the attorney you want on your side. She is responsive, thorough and spot on in her advice and is generally concerned about the future of her client. She is as good as it gets when it comes to effective and experienced counsel, especially trust account/escrow issues. Simply put, when your license is on the line you want the best-Kaylin Whittingham.


Testimonial 2

Kaylin is the most diligent, thorough and professional attorney I have had the privilege to meet and work with. Her knowledge and experience insure the best possible representation of her clients, especially those with disciplinary issues. She leaves no stone unturned in preparation and will insure the best representation possible for her clients. I highly recommend her!

Kaylin has a passion for attorney professional responsibility. I received an investigation letter from the Disciplinary Committee and did not know how to respond. I turned to Kaylin and I’m very glad I did. Kaylin presented a masterful response to the Disciplinary Committee and clearly managed my expectations and fears. Kaylin not only stayed in contact with the Disciplinary Committee to expedite review but also kept me informed every step of the way. I was thrilled to hear that, based on Kaylin’s response alone, the Committee found there was no basis for taking action and closed the matter. It was a stressful situation but Kaylin’s experience working with the Disciplinary Committee and knowledge of the practice area put me at ease. Thank you Kaylin!


testimonial 3

Lawyers need lawyers themselves. We can’t advocate for clients if we are unsure of how to advocate for ourselves. When I am tempted to engage in conduct that would not display professionalism; even when I’m right, I pause and call Kaylin Whittingham to get her opinion, so I can get back to what I love—being a true advocate for my clients. At times when it doesn’t smell right, it is not right. I have avoided conflicts and possible thousands of dollars in legal fees and a grievance complaint by picking up the phone and calling Kaylin.
