William G. Whittaker

Partner – Attorney at Law

William G. Whittaker (Bill) is a distinguished family law attorney with over thirty years’ experience in helping his clients navigate difficult periods in their lives.  Separating from one’s spouse or partner is never easy, but Bill’s knowledge and experience help to ease the uncertainty that goes with a separation.  In any consultation, Bill explains the issues involving custody, child support, alimony and property settlement.  He then goes on to explain the methods of obtaining a settlement, the reasons and structure of mediations, and the procedures for litigation.  He will then offer advice and counsel as to the best way to meet his client’s goals.

Attorney in Matthews, NC

Bill possesses extensive courtroom experience, having appeared in well over one thousand family law hearings and trials on custody, child support, alimony, and property settlement cases.  Bill’s extensive knowledge and experience have earned victories in some of the longest and most high-conflict custody cases in both Mecklenburg and Union counties. He has litigated equitable distribution in marital estates worth more than 5 million dollars but understands each client and each case is equally important.  Bill has been recommended to clients by many attorneys who know him and who have been involved in cases against him, the sincerest praise an attorney can receive. Many of these attorneys recommend Bill for his tenacity and willingness to battle for his client’s cause.

However, Bill realizes it is always best to attempt to achieve a settlement before trial, if possible.  Bill has resolved through negotiation and mediations hundreds of custodies, child support, alimony and property settlement cases. Bill explains that settlements are usually less time intensive, are far less expensive and create less animosity between the parties than litigation.  In cases where children are involved, settlements are always in the children’s best interests.

Bill graduated from UNC Charlotte in 1975 and The University of Tennessee College of Law in 1982.  After a few years in corporate law and in his own firm, Bill joined Weaver, Bennett & Bland in 1988 and became a partner in 1996.  Bill is heavily involved in the communities of both Mecklenburg and Union Counties.  He has served as president of numerous boards at UNC Charlotte and of the Rotary Club of Waxhaw-Weddington.

If you need a family law attorney who is knowledgeable, experienced, and willing to fight for your goals, but looks after your financial interests in attempting to settle first, call Bill today.
