Summary

Before starting her solo practice in Rockville, Maryland, Ms. Whitfield represented federal sector employees with a variety of labor and employment law issues. Since starting her practice in 2006, Ms. Whitfield has expanded her areas of practice to include Maryland unemployment and wage & hour cases, federal sector workers compensation, and domestic litigation.

Ms. Whitfield's interest in the practice of law stems from her interest in social justice issues and her sincere desire to serve underrepresented communities. To that end, Ms. Whitfield donates a large percentage of her time to volunteering in her community. Ms. Whitfield is currently a volunteer attorney with the Montgomery County, Maryland Bar Foundation's Pro Bono Program and the Women's Law Center of Maryland's Employment Law Hotline.
