Summary

Whitney Cameron was the first of her family to go to college and she got her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and Economics at Augustana College. She received her Juris Doctorate from The John Marshall Law School in 2017, with honors. Whitney was an editor for The John Marshall Law Review and a member of the The John Marshall Moot Court Honors Program. While studying for her legal degree Whitney devoted over eight credit hours to pro bono and volunteer work. She spent an entire summer in 2016 at the Will County Court House in the Externship Program where she mentored under several judges and wrote memorandums of law to assist in the final adjudication. It was during this externship that she discovered her passion for Family Law.

At the end of 2016, Whitney joined Henderson Law & Mediation Center. She started as a secretary and legal assistant and continued to work as such until she passed the bar and was sworn in as an attorney in November 2017.

At Henderson Law & Mediation Center, Whitney concentrates her practice in the areas of Divorce, Separation, Parental Allocation (formerly known as Custody), and Child Support.

Whitney is currently a member of the American Bar Association and the Illinois State Bar Association and the Will County Bar Association. Her free time is split between her nieces, adopted nephews, and her dog.
