Tessa Creighton
Tessa was wonderful to work with. She made this difficult time in our family less stressful when it came to paperwork and what choices we had.

Great Experience
I worked with Charlie on two different matters, first a protective order and then later child custody. He was wonderful. He was very informative, and he has a compassionate demeanor and sense of humor that helped reduce the stress of court proceedings. I appreciate the advice he gave during negotiations for child custody and child support. I was planning to push the case to court, but on his advice I came to an agreement. I’m very happy with how things stand today, and I’ll use him again should the need arise.

Great Family Law Practice
Tessa went above and beyond in my situation. I would recommend her to any friend or family needing a Family Law attorney. The practice was very organized and knowledgeable with the local court system. Even though divorce wasn't what I wanted, we got the best possible outcome I believe.

Client
Both Charles and Tessa were very knowledgeable and understanding during the process. Things were done timely and professionally. I was a baby during the process but they were very understanding. It was comforting to know they were on my side.

Tessa Creighton is the best!
Tessa Creighton represented me in my child support and custody case. She was very professional and helped me through the whole process. Mrs. Creighton was able to obtain child support and setup a parenting plan that I agreed with. She went way above and beyond my expectations in court. I am very grateful for her and I highly recommend her for anyone going through the difficult challenges of family court. Mrs. Creighton will be my only choice for an attorney if I ever I need another one.

Expert in the field
Charlie went to bat for me in an ugly child custody case. He truly cared about my feelings and fought hard to protect my rights as a father. He has an exceptional team, and they all hold themselves to the higest of standards. During my tumultuous times, Charlie was able to calm my nerves, and make me feel like everything would turn out ok. Throughout the process I could see that Charlie's exerpise was exceptional bar none. Not only did he deliver, but he got me more than I was expecting. I belive that finding Charlie in my time of need was nothing short of a miracle for my family,as well as myself. I would highly recommend Charlie to anyone and I truly respect him as a person. Great work Charlie! You have set the bar high in Chattanooga!

Help when I needed it most
Charles Wheland was recommended by a friend. From the very first phone call I felt totally at ease and felt I found the person I needed in my corner. He made no promises of what the outcome would be, but laid it all out in clear terms. Every single time I reached out to his office, I received a timely response. Honestly, I was a mess at times but there was always someone reassuring me and letting me know what was normal in this type of case. This was a cross country divorce so it wasn't as simple as dealing with local parties. Charlie and his team took care of me. From the first phone call to the final call with the judge granting the divorce, Charlie was with me. I felt like I had someone who really cared about the outcome and about me. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.

Phenomenal Experience
When your future depends on the outcome of a court date, you want Wheland and Yates to represent you. My experience with this law firm exceeded my expectations. They were super responsive and kept me apprised of the status of my case. Mr.Wheland was both professional and personable. The outcome was peace of mind. If I need representation again I will definitely use this law firm.

Knowledgeable, trustworthy, & honest. Highly recommended!
Charlie took on my case when no one else would back in 2016. I have a very difficult ex to deal with and I already had one lawyer drop me because of him. He was genuine about my feelings on my complex case while at the same time open and honest about what to possibly expect in situations similar to mine. Charlie and his team have always been kind, generous, patient, and caring. They made my very difficult situation easier to deal with knowing that I was in good hands. Every time I called I felt like I was dealing with close friends instead of the client/clientele type relationship. I highly recommend Charlie Wheland.

Charlie is the man.
Charlie and his staff are professionals and good at what they do. Divorce is a terrible situation, no other way to put it. I felt confident with Charlie in my corner guiding my along the way. His advice was excellent and I have no doubt my case ended the best way possible because of Charlie’s efforts. Highly recommend. You won’t regret it.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Charlie brings to family law a wonderful asset: an attorney who zealously represents his clients but with a rapport with opposing counsel that is unrivaled. I would work with Charlie on any case, whether on the same team or opposing counsel. The ability to see through the "fluff" and resolve the real issues is an ability sorely needed in family law."
