  • Christian J. Phelps

    Bryan Whitaker is an exceptional criminal defense attorney. He has experience handling cases from shoplifting to murder. I have worked with him several times where we represented codefendants in serious state and federal criminal cases; his work has always impressed me. Anyone charged with a serious criminal offense will be well served having Bryan in their corner. I refer cases to him with confidence.
