Don, helped us so much during our bankruptcy. He answered all of our questions and went out of his way to meet with us to go over our concerns before we were due in court. My husband and I could call him anytime, during this stressful and embarrassing time in our lives and he was sympathetic and understanding.
We have recommended him to quite a few friends who because of the current economic conditions in Michigan have needed his help and expertise.

Donald represented me during my divorce case. I never had any trouble getting through to him as he would always promptly return my calls/texts (including evenings and weekends). When we would meet, we would pick someplace convenient for me. From the start to the end of the case, he always focused on "my" goals. He was able to reach a settlement with my ex that I am satisfied with. I will be sure to get ahold of Don for any future needs.

I was familiar with Don Wheaton from his long standing reputation in our community. I had voted for him when he ran for our school board. The reason I did was because he came to my door and spoke directly to me regarding school issues and proposals. That impressed me and I had no doubt that he would have the same tenacity in handling my legal matter.
He was a very good listener. He made it easy to meet with him or call him and discuss my concerns. My case had some complications and he composed communications on my behalf with detail and professionalism. He represented me with respect and complete capability. I would, and have recommended Don Wheaton for his legal advice and service.

I endorse Don. He understands the complex dynamics that cause divorce and custody disputes. Don can be the fierce pit bull or the calming conciliator. Family law is not suited for a "one size fits all" solution, and Don tailors his approach based on the facts of the case. I do not hesitate to send family referrals to Don.

I endorse this lawyer. In my experience, Don has always been very attentive to his client's needs. He assesses each person's case carefully, and strives to find the best possible result for his clients. I believe Don to be a highly proffesional attorney who works hard to achieve his client's goals.
