40 YEARS OF MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR LITIGATION EXPERIENCE IN MULTIPLE STATES

The secret to success for Marshall P. Whalley has been his widely varied interests and seemingly boundless energy to pursue them. Having immersed himself in such fields as mechanics, physics, physiology, education, consumer protection and medicine, Mr. Whalley has acquired a wealth of knowledge directly applicable to the investigation and litigation of personal injury cases.

Mr. Whalley's father attended M.I.T., earning two engineering degrees and going on to design tanks for the government. His mother was a nurse educator with a Bachelor of Science and a Master's degree. Growing up near the Motor City, Mr. Whalley spent long hours building and racing cars, and many summers working on his grandfather's farm.

Mr. Whalley attended the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where he studied physics and psychology, earning his B.S. in 1980. His graduate work there in physics at the Kresge Medical Hearing Research Institute involved training lizards to respond to acoustic stimuli. His other pursuits included designing and implementing pilot programs at the Milan Federal Correctional Institute and the Maxey Boys Correctional Institute, allowing inmates to obtain GED certificates.

Mr. Whalley also worked in the Consumer Protection Division of the Washtenaw County Prosecutor's office, where he mediated consumer complaints, securing the largest consumer settlement to date in the Division's history. At the same time, he worked for a tenant's rights group helping educate renters regarding their rights vis a vis large corporate landlords. During the summer months, Mr. Whalley continued to attend class at Ann Arbor, but also worked 40 to 50 hours per week on the assembly line in Detroit for both Chrysler and General Motors. On the line, he ran presses, welded wheels, performed manual assembly and body work, and painted cars.

Thereafter, Mr. Whalley received a scholarship to Valparaiso University School of Law. He continued to work on cars and drag raced to help pay college expenses. He then took a job clerking for a well-respected personal injury firm doing medical research, writing and investigating. He became a lawyer at the firm, then partner, using his background in physics and medicine to facilitate settlements of the two largest brain-damaged baby cases in Florida's history. Mr. Whalley's background in physics allowed him to employ a waveform analysis of fetal monitor strips to prove when a critical tocolytic drug had been stopped.

Over the past 30 years, Mr. Whalley's myriad interests have helped him to be an effective advocate for his clients. Designing, building, racing and repairing all types of vehicles, Mr. Whalley developed insight into crash dynamics that few lawyers have. His training in physics and medicine has provided a unique perspective on the causes of complicated crashes and their medical consequences. Marshall P. Whalley has used his unique background to prove-up millions of dollars in valid claims that might otherwise have been lost.

Undeniable Devotion! Thank you so much Marshall!!
Marshall worked extremely hard to win our case. You could see he took on our struggle as his own and put all his effort into winning for us. You will not regret choosing him to represent you. Oh and by the way we won huge on a case others said had no chance. Marshall is very smart, highly educated but also shares your pain. If you need advice on who to hire to represent yourself of your family, you need to look no further. Marshall will not let you down. Make the smart choice and you will not regret it.

Marshall is a godsend. He took our case when others wouldn't. A complicated birth injury case. Ultimately, Marshall has provided us with the means to take care of our daughter for life. In our opinion, you won't find a better medical malpractice attorney. We will always recommend Marshall Whalley and Associates to everyone we encounter who needs legal help. Marshall, you know you will always have a special place in our hearts. Mr & Mrs RJ

Thank you!
I employed Marshall P. Whalley & Associates for a personal injury claim, not only were they very professional, but they were beyond kind and understanding. The whole staff there made me and my family feel very comfortable and explained every step of this process for us. I was especially impressed when I had to call on the weekend and a REAL person picked up and she answered my questions for me right then and there. Thank you so much!!!

Three years but great result
Our son had gotten hurt on an ATV while on the farm. My son was not driving but suffered pain and prolonged injury. Mr. Whalley took the case and spent many hours pursuing the best compensation from the insurance company. He was excellent and all things worked out in the end. Highly recommend.

Outstanding Representation
First off let me say this is the best personal injury/malpractice law firm in northwest indiana. He is very knowledgeable about Laws and everything under the sun. I have never been so relieved in my life after the representation that i received throughout my case. I got into a bad car accident last year that resulted in a broken leg. If it had not been for Marshall Whalley & Associates law firm i would not be so lucky. I wish i could give this law firm more stars because they deserve it.

Medical Malpractice/Wrongful Death Suit
Marshall is pursuing a medical malpractice suit for myself & a wrongful death claim for my 5 day old son who died because of injuries sustained during birth. He is very helpful, will explain things to the best of his knowledge and break it down into simpler terms to make sure you know what he's talking about. He's excellent!!! One of the nicest and most caring people I've ever met. :)

Dedicated and Compassionate
Mr. Whalley and Assoc. were able to help me get restitution for a botched medical procedure. I had had no luck trying to take care of it on my own and Mr. Whalley was able to get a settlement very quickly. My family and I are very thankful.

Great Attorney & Staff
Although nothing can bring back my husband, whom I lost several years back in a terrible trucking accident, hiring Attorney Whalley & his staff, helped ease a lot my anger & grief because they made the company responsible own up to their negligence and knowing that someone else's loved one will not have to suffer like my husband did brought some justice and relief into my life.

Many years and cases big and small but all important to us
My husband and I had several cases handled by Mr.Whalley in the past 5 years my husbands Last Will and Testament /Power of Attorney when we found out he had lung CA another law firm contacted us , my husband had contacted asbestos in the Navy and also thru out his life in his jobs over at least 100 or more products used by steel mill manufactures. Of course he contacted Mr. Whalley ASAP. Mr. Whalley was very honest in saying he did not handle those type of cases ,he would how ever try to find someone. My husband said he would like to try the firm that had contacted him but wanted Mr.Whalley to research them and help him to understand the forms they had sent. Upon my husbands death and ever since Mr.Whalley has helped me with every thing. Its amazing how many things arise and how people change, but Mr. Whalley has remained steadfast. this is truly not only a good lawyer but a great person as well. The kind of person anyone with a legal problem or issue would want on there side.
