Mr. Whelan accomplished my divorce quickly
Mr. Whelan took on my case with my very difficult doctor former husband who did not wnat to come to court or respond to anything. But Mr. Whelan was able to get him to the table and force him to agree to a fair settlment tha included maintenance. Now he is fighting my jusband once again for the maintenance he did not pay. I am so happy I have Mr. Whelan working on my behalf. I recommend him to anyone that needs an attorney to fight for them. He always lets me know what is happening and gets back to me even though I am out of the area.

Bankrptcy and commercial sale success
Mr. Whelan took on my case against the bank trying to take my gas station without compensation. It took going through a bankruptcy to help me discharge a lot of debt and getting my station sold in a very complicated sale while holding the bank off from a foreclosure of the property. There were tenant problems, EPA issues and payoff amounts that Mr. Whelan did an effective job getting resolved. I was able to avoid any deficiency and get the debt to the bank satisfied. His diligency in staying with the issues virtually every day on the phone and in court really got the job done.

My divorce
I have four children and a former husband that took up with a 21 year old. I had very little money and no representation in court. The judge did not care and kept saying the case was going to trial. Mr. Whelan helped me get it don and get the child support we needed to keep us going. I really like that he would call and let me know what was going on all the time. If I called him, he got back to me.
