I am Attorney Lindsey B Whisenhant and I have been practicing law and serving the people of Southeast Texas since 1990. I have strong ties to the community and a deep commitment to the success of my clients. When you come to my law office, you can expect straight talk in plain English so you will know what to expect in negotiations or in court.
When you're working with a lawyer, you're part of a team that should be focused on meeting your goals and needs. That's why the ability to listen is the most important quality to look for when choosing a Texas attorney. I take the time to understand your goals and then work with you to ensure we get the job done as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.
Some people think they need an "aggressive" attorney to get anything done. That's not true. Sometimes an aggressive approach costs you more money in the long run by stirring up angry feelings and causing people to dig in their heels. This can often make your legal problem worse.
I can be aggressive when it's called for (especially in personal injury lawsuits), but far more important for the success of my clients, I'm thorough, prepared, and I treat people with respect.
By encouraging an atmosphere of reasonableness, I'm able to resolve conflicts faster, with less expense, and often with greater satisfaction for my clients. A calm and reasonable approach is particularly effective in helping family law clients resolve divorce and child custody issues amicably. After all, you may need to co-parent with your former partner for years to come.
Respect Goes a Long Way
Treating others with respect has earned me the respect of my peers in the legal community and the judges I work with and I am well known in local Texas courts. I'm licensed by the Texas Supreme Court, the U.S. District Court Eastern District of Texas, the U.S. Court of Appeals 5th Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court, 1994.
I am a member of numerous legal associations, including the Texas Trial Lawyers Association, The American Trial Lawyers Association, the Tyler County Bar Association, and the State Bar Association of Texas. I'm also active in the community as a member of the Woodville Lions Club and the First Baptist Church.
