| Consulted Attorney
Non-Profit Organization
Whitaker was prompt in responding to the unanticipated situation our new non-profit organization faced in regards to a contract question. He was professional in communicating with us and with the opposing counsel. We are so grateful for his expertise and his guidance in successfully resolving this issue.

Mineral Lease
I consulted with Whit concerning a mineral lease. He efficiently reviewed my proposed lease and consulted with the land man. He is very knowledgeable and constructed the best lease for me. He communicated with me in every step of the process. I highly recommend Whitaker.

First Rate Young Oil & Gas Attorney
Whit is a young attorney but he makes up for limited years in practice with great research and communication skills. His status as a Board Certified Oil & Gas Attorney is well deserved. I give this attorney high marks for focus, problem solving and client attention, at a reasonable rate. Definitely would recommend as he has "fire in his belly" to do a good job. I have over 30 years managing Oil & Gas projects and put him to the test early with complicated lease analysis, curative, BIA and transaction services for Woodland Resources, LLC and he excelled at all his assignments and billed appropriate for his assignments.
