Attorney Profile

A partner at Whitsitt & Whitsitt, LLC, Rachel Whitsitt focuses her practice primarily on family law matters. Working out of the firm’s office in Overland Park, Kansas, she provides representation to clients throughout the greater Kansas City metropolitan area. Admitted to practice before all Kansas and Missouri state courts since 2012, Ms. Whitsitt is also admitted to practice Colorado as well as before the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas.

Many of Ms. Whitsitt’s family law clients are people whose marriages have come to an end, and she helps them deal with such issues as parenting time, the division of complex marital assets and debts, and spousal and child support. Both Kansas and Missouri require estranged parents who are faced with child custody decisions to first go through mediation, and she advises them as to what to expect before the sessions commence. If her clients are subsequently unable to come to an accord through that alternative dispute resolution method, Ms. Whitsitt advocates on their behalf in court, and she does so as well on other divorce-related matters that are unable to be amicably resolved.

Other family law cases that Ms. Whitsitt has experience in include post-decree modifications to child support and parenting plans, paternity cases, as well as the preparation and review of prenuptial and postmarital agreements. Outside of that practice area, she has handled litigation involving business disputes and landlord/tenant disputes.  She also assists clients in collecting on judgments obtained.

Ms. Whitsitt majored in political science and psychology at Kansas State University and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2007. She then went on to attend Creighton University School of Law, and in 2010, she was awarded her Juris Doctor. Ms. Whitsitt has been with the firm that was founded by her father for her entire legal career.
