Extensive knowledge, awesome attention to detail and superior negotiating skills make this lawyer excellent at his practice of law. We recently have used him for corporate and real estate transactions. We have also used him previously in handling employment contracts as well as negotiation disputes.
Mr. Whelan has served as counsel to our Federal credit union for more than ten years. During that time, he has ably assisted us with contract preparation, debt collection and negotiation, creditors rights, bankruptcy proceedings and general business advice. His legal counsel has proven invaluable, as has his success in recovery of our delinquent accounts. As manager of this organization, I can recommend Chuck Whelan without qualification
Middlesex County EFCU
Our family has only the greatest appreciation and respect for the services provided by Mr. Whelan. He represented my 90 year old Mother in the selling of her old home, and the very complicated contract involved in her new home. In addition to being competent, knowledgeable, and professional, he was kind and caring. He took care of my Mom as if she were his own! He patiently made sure she understood every paper she signed, despite the "other side" trying to take matters more lightly. He responded promptly to all questions and communications with helpful and effective advice and guidance.
In summary, his help was indispensable. He made a difficult situation manageable, and we were really glad he was on OUR side!
In 2005, I was struck by a car while crossing a highway intersection on foot, sustaining serious injuries. My original lawyer waited until the day before the statute of limitations was to expire, to file my case, and then filed it in the wrong county. In 2012, I learned through my daughter (who was working at a law firm and accessed my case through the court website) that my case had been dismissed two years prior because my lawyer failed to provide discovery to the defendant. I then found Mr. Whelan who contacted my original lawyer to take over the case, but there was no response. Given the short notice and lack of communication with my prior attorney, Mr. Whelan obtained a court order restoring my case and permitting him to act as my attorney. He was able to bring my case back to the active list two weeks prior to it formally being dismissed by the court. However, because the case was so old, the court would only allow a very limited time to complete discovery. In a few short months, Mr. Whelan was able to obtain all of my medical records from my providers, arrange for follow up visits to my doctors, secure expert reports and updates, and then settle the case for an amount that was very satisfactory to me. I will never forget my attorney's dedication to obtaining a substantial recovery for me under a severe time deadline and with no cooperation from my former lawyer. Also, Mr. Whelan was very accommodating of my limited English throughout the case and my lack of understanding of the American court system. My family is currently using his services on another matter and I can recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation. RS
After my divorce, I was losing my home to foreclosure. Mr. Whelan stepped in and helped me to keep my home and to discharge bills that I could not afford. He showed great care and concern in a very traumatic time for me and my young children. One creditor attempted to contest my bankruptcy filing and Mr. Whelan was there to resolve that for me. I highly recommend him, and have referred others to him.
Chuck is an extremely capable and trustworthy attorney that I can recommend unequivocally. I have utilized Chuck for corporate litigation, contracts, incorporation, and debt/lending agreements etc. over the years for my business operations. In addition my wife and I have worked with him personally for real estate transactions, insurance reviews, and estate planning etc. What sets Chuck apart (and I have utilized other well regarded attorneys/firms) is his ability to identify the end goal and result you want and get you to it quickly and capably. Other attorneys and firms tend to fixate on the process and sometimes miss the point you are trying to achieve. Finally (and maybe most importantly) he is completely trustworthy and dedicated to doing the right thing and putting the interests of his clients first. I can give him the most sensitive business or personal matters to handle and rest assured that they will be taken care of honorably and capably.
Excellent attorney! Not only is Mr. Whelan very knowledgeable but very honest as well. Thanks to him our transaction was very smooth and all issues were handled in our best interest. Mr. Whelan made sure that we understood what was going on this our purchase from contract to closing. We are very thankful for having him representing us in this very important matter.
