I first met Mr. Whalen over 20 years ago when my parents needed an attorney to revise their will and to assist with estate planning. He was extremely knowledgeable and considerate at that time which is why I chose to go back to him when another relative needed assistance. I thought it would be difficult as I live 500 miles away, but not so. John was kind enough to not only meet with the family locally, but spent a great deal of time to speak with me long distance to answer questions I had. This can be a trying time for families, but John was very patient and reassuring. His knowledge of estate law is enormous and he gave us things to think about that we had not considered. I am very grateful to John for all he did for me and would highly recommended him to anyone. His kind and compassionate nature is a comfort during a difficult time. I really can't say enough good things about him and would definitely use him again.

John provided us the documents we needed quickly and efficiently. He came to our house for two consults, assessed our needs, and followed up with a complete package that put our minds at ease. And all with a finely tuned sense of humor! Thanks John.

John is a fantastic lawyer. He's very knowledgable in many aspects of law, and was very polite and courteous in helping with my situation- I'd rather not share specifics. I would definitely recommend his services to anybody in need of a wills and estates lawyer.

I never had a friend who was an attorney, now I do. Mr. Whalen's approach was collaborative and guided. He stayed the course and never waivered on a situation that lasted almost 3 years. Mr. Whalen is talented and looks beyond the obvious in his tactical approach. He is well- versed in the courtroom or the living room to discuss and understand the situation. It's not a one-size fits all mentality when selecting the right attorney, I'm glad I selected Mr. John B. Whalen Jr. Ask him about the 5 minute phone card.

John visited us to help with my mother-in-law's estate planning and gave us some VERY good advise contrary to what we were about to do. Saved us thousands of dollars in the future by not making the mistakes we were about to. As much research as we did, talking with an expert was definitely the smartest thing we did. Very personable and a pleasure to deal with. We look forward to working with John on some current issues and then when the estate needs to be settled.

I had a very complex issue regarding my mom's estate that I ran by John. He was the most patient, attentive, and responsive lawyer I have ever dealt with. There is no doubt that John is an exceptional lawyer. But when you are faced with a difficult, sensitive, and emotional issue, it is essential to also hire a compassionate person - and John B. Whalen Jr. is all heart! I was able to resolve my issue. I will be forever grateful for John's assistance with this very difficult matter.

Attorney Whalen gained my trust up front by being very open about his professional background (with some personal anecdotes thrown in). I had been dealing with a very difficult and emotional estate matter, and he calmed my fears by finding a quick resolution.

I highly recommend John and in doing so, I know he will exceed your expectations.

I have known John for many, many years. Being an attorney takes not only a thorough understanding of the law, but a compassion for the people as well. John is the most knowledgeable and compassionate person and attorney that I know. I cannot state this any more clearly: If you are in need of the services from a probate, wills, estate attorney, then you need John. He truly is the best.
