After 30+ years of marriage, my former spouse filed for divorce. Mr. Whims had done some excellent work for me on a real estate transaction several years ago, so I called him for a recommendation. I was mildly surprised that he also handled divorce cases, but was very comfortable in retaining him to handle this situation as well. For me, it was an emotional roller coaster, and the entire process lasted for about 18 months. In every respect, I was satisfied with my interactions with him and the service that he provided. He never forgot the emotional toil that the process was having, but more importantly, he led me through the process with the right mix of tenacity and aggressiveness tempered with restraint when appropriate. He knew the attorneys and the judge assigned to my case, and when expert information was needed, he chose the right people. In the end, his approach preserved for me nearly a million dollars more of my assets than I had been initially willing to give up. He was usually very busy during the time that he worked for me, but he always answered my phone calls when he was in the office, and even called me on weekends from his cell phone when some issue "couldn't wait". His assistant was always available, and kept a very precise file system of the various motions and hearings that took place. Strange as it sounds, I was comforted by the fact that I couldn't always reach him immediately, knowing that other clients had also chosen him to represent them, and that he was in high demand.
Bottom line, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to a potential client who may need his expertise. His fees were in line with attorney fees for the area, and his itemized bills were very clear and understandable. If I need legal advice in the future, I would call him first, and be comfortable that, even if he wasn't able to handle my situation, he would provide an appropriate referral
