Excdllent attorney
I needed an attorney in another state and Mr. Whiteman went out of his way to understand my situation. He intrepreted the laws as they are in North Carolina to discern if my case was relative to their laws and whether I should expect a favorable outcome. He then found an attorney in that state, described accurately the issues and saved immence time, money and travel.
