National Family Law Firm, WhitbeckBennett, Extends Reach with Oklahoma City Office Launch
WhitbeckBennett Strives to Protect What Matters Most to Families Across the Nation
“Oklahoma families will be our firm’s focus and we look forward to being an active member of the business community in this great state and this great city.”
The Oklahoma City office will be managed by WhitbeckBennett’s Amber Godfrey, who has been practicing law for 13 years and was named a Top Attorney for Family Law by 405 Magazine for 2020 and 2021.
John Whitbeck, founder and managing partner of WhitbeckBennett, initially launched the Virginia-headquartered firm in April of 2020 with aspirations to seek out future locations to expand their practice to reach families in crisis across the United States. The Family Law Firm was founded with a vision to help struggling families with strong legal advice, acting as their advocate when they need it most.
“As the son of a native of Oklahoma City, it’s a special honor to open this office,” writes Whitbeck. “Oklahoma families will be our firm’s focus and we look forward to being an active member of the business community in this great state and this great city.”
WhitbeckBennett will be the first National Family Law Firm in Oklahoma City that serves both men and women. Focusing their practice on the areas of law that affect everyone in the family, WhitbeckBennett’s mission is to serve families with compassion, trusted advice, and fearless advocacy. Their practice areas include: Divorce, Child Custody, Child & Spousal Support, Domestic Violence & Protective Orders, Adoption, Guardianship, Guardian ad Litem, Mediation and Estate Planning.
“Though not born in Oklahoma, this great State is my home,” writes Godfrey. “I love the landscape, the rich history, the heart and resiliency of its people and how we bounce back after losses of any kind—and how we are the first to lend a hand when there is a need. We are Oklahoma Strong, and I have the honor and privilege of using that same heart and strength to manage the Oklahoma City office for WhitbeckBennett. Together, we are determined to protect what matters most: your family.”
A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held on Monday, June 7, 2021 to mark the official opening of the WhitbeckBennett Oklahoma City office. Mayor Breea Clark of Norman, Okla. attended the event as an honored guest and speaker to support in the commemoration of the special occasion.
