Jim Whelpley was admitted to practice law in Minnesota in 1975, the Court of Military Appeals in 1976, the U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota in 1981 and the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals in 1982. He is also licensed as a lawyer in Wisconsin. Jim started as a lawyer in the Marine Corps, where he handled both criminal and civil cases. He has handled a broad range of cases over the last 38 years, including thousands of divorces and hundreds of bankruptcies.
Jim always looks for a way to help every client, including those that choose to represent themselves, either because they have limited funds or simply because they want to represent themselves.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. He knows the law well. He cuts to the chase. He stays on top of his cases. He adapts his approach to the individual case, keeping simple cases simple, but bringing his broad experience to the more complicated matters. He is fair and straightforward about the fees he charges. I recommend Jim often.
