Unfortunately, I have previously needed lawyers. In some instances I have felt that I was just another case to them. I understand that this is their job, and I am paying for their expertise and not a shoulder to cry on, but we are going through quite possibly, other than death, the worst time of our lives. James Whalen is not only an expert in his field but he also makes you feel that you are not just another case to won, lost or plead out. Each time I met with or spoke to James, he would ask, "how are you". I needed to hear that. James knows his way around the judicial system, specializing in white collar and federal crime. He is very well known and very well respected by not only his peers, but also prosecutors as well as judges. I witnessed this first hand. James did the very best the letter of the law would allow in my case. I would recommend James Whalen to anyone that was asking my advise on whom to retain for counsel. Many Thanks!
