Knowledgeable, Patient, Thorough Attorney
I have been a client of Mr. Whalen's for the past 3 years. I have used this firm for various legal issues, with the last being a Probate matter. Mr. Whalen and his staff are extremely helpful, knowledgeable, considerate and caring. The Probate matter that I used his firm for was a very long, arduous process. Throughout this process I was treated with the utmost professonalism. After losing my mother and having the legal issues arise, I was very comforted by Mr. Whalen and his staff and they made an otherwise stressful and sad experience more bearable.

Excellent attorney and professional staff! *****
Received a traffic citation for speeding in Austin, Mr Whalens office took the case and handled right away. I was able to keep ticket off my driving record and didn't have to appear in court or make any calls. Saved me so much time and money! Thankful!

Thank You To Mr Whalen and His Team
I wanted to take a moment to share my fantastic experience working with Kelley Whalen’s Law office. Kelley and his Team were fast at getting back to me and were able to provide me with a Speedy Process regarding a Civil Traffic Violation that the Judge residing in Hardin County. His Team was able to provide me with a very amicable and much appreciated resolution. I had contacted 3 other offices and none had even responded to my need until after this was already completely resolved, and I had paid my fees to both Kelley’s Law Office and the Court House in Hardin County. I am grateful and would highly recommend them. Not to mention that I really felt like they cared and were extremely courteous. Thank you, Kelley and Your Team, for your time and everything you did to help me with this matter. Respectfully, Rob

Thank you!
For the first time in 30 years I found myself without a job, going through several hardships and unable to pay my bills. I was sued and facing a lawsuit. Devastated and unsure of where to turn, I found Terri at Kelley F. Whalen Law Offices by the grace of God. She provided me so much comfort and support in addition to helping me with the suit. I’m so thankful and humbled by her generosity and knowing there are people like Terri who truly care.

Above and beyond
I worked with this office regarding a lawsuit that was filed against me and they were great! They looked at every avenue possible that might be helpful to me. Not helpful to my CASE, but helpful to ME, regardless of the case. This makes all of the difference. There's a more urgent desire to help when you can see your clients as people. Moreover, Terri went well above and beyond to help me, and both she and Mr. Whalen were Candid about the process and what I could expect. I love candor in these situations, as it prepares me for what exactly to expect. Thank you again Terri and Kelley!

Great work
In 2019 I found myself with a medical issues that affected my finances in a negative aspect. As a result in 2020 a suit was brought against me from a company I owed money. Working with the Law Office of Kelley Whalen they were able to help me settle the suit brought against me. They were courteous and understanding of my situation and took their time to listen and understand my specific situation. I respect everyone there in the highest regards with a special recognition to Terri Ryan.

Very Helpful
I spoke with Terri about a case and she was very responsive and helpful. Our consultation was very informative and she made things simple so that I can understand. Ive never actually been in court and that process can be complicated but I felt comfortable with next steps after our conversation.

I don't normally write reviews, but I truly appreciate Kelley and his OM Terri! They went above and beyond to help me with my pro se case when the judge said I was missing some attachments. I had called multiple lawyers in Gtown trying to find help with what I was missing, and their offices refused to take a look or wanted to charge a ridiculous amount. By the time I spoke with Terri, I was in tears. She managed to arrange a same day phone call with Mr. Whalen who then took me page by page of what I was missing and gave me some great advice. The price was very reasonable and worth every penny. Two days later I was able to get the judge to sign my paperwork. Thank you again so much!!!!!

Resolution for the New Year
I was referred to this office by my employer's legal aid benefit. They were prompt, courteous and effective in helping me get resolution. I had overpaid a healthcare provider and was having a difficult time being refunded. Almost a year after trying to obtain a refund by myself, my friends and family urged me to reach out for legal assistance. I started by calling Law Point. It's a free legal resource offered by my employer. They first put me in touch with a different attorney but I was never contacted back despite leaving multiple messages. I contacted Law Point again. After apologizing they put me in touch with Mr. Whalen's office instead. I was able to reach someone right away. I explained what I was seeking (i.e., a demand letter) and why. They prompted me for additional information and once I provided it via email, I was quickly contacted to arrange a phone consultation with a lawyer. After a candid conversation about the situation and possible outcomes, the letter was sent on my behalf. Once the letter was received, Terri from Mr. Whalen's office went to bat for me. She pounced on every message received from the manager and kept me informed of every new development. Two weeks ago Terri told me a refund was issued and we rejoiced together on the phone! I received a check but more importantly respect, and resolution. I couldn't be happier, or more grateful!

Great Advice
It was a pleasure speaking with Mr. Kay yesterday. Please tell him “Thank you” from my husband and myself. He did mention we could contact him if we had any further questions. As of now, Mr. Kay has given us some great advice and a direction of what we need to do at this time. Thank you and your establishment for your time in this matter.

Competent and Considerate Attorney
I am writing this recommendation of Kelley Whalen because I have been so impressed by both the great legal advice he provides but also his patience with me . I am not very experienced with legal matters. I am really amazed at how every time we discuss my case, Mr. Whalen consistently takes a lot of time explaining things and making sure that I understand everything that is happening , the mechanics of how things are working in the case and generally just making me feel that he really is interested in not only doing a great job in legal representation ( he just told me we have won my case) but also interested in me understanding what is happening and why . I highly recommend Mr. Whalen as an attorney

II have had the sincere pleasure of having Mr. Kelley Whalen as my Attorney for about five years. I have found Mr. Whalen to be an extremely professional and a very ethical person who has his client’s best interest at heart. He is patient and willing to take the time necessary to listen to his clients concerns while giving them his very best advice. He is mindful of the costs and he researches the options available to each client prior to making his final suggestions. He is mindful of the costs involved and always gives the best price possible. I personally have dealt with the legal system as police officers for over twenty years and have never found any other attorney that worked as hard for his clients. If you are looking for an honest, hardworking Attorney who gives 100% to your case then Mr. Kelley Whalen is your man. He simplifies the legal jargon and gives you straight answers to the problems that you are concerned with. He has given me and my family great legal advice for a fair price. I highly recommend him and his fine staff for anyone looking for the best legal representation possible!

A Thankful Sandra Dee Maldonado
I showed up to court with a lot of anxiety on the fate of my case. Mr. Whalen was very comforting and put my concerns at ease. He explained things to me in terms that I could understand. He was personable and I felt confident with him handling my case. I did not fell like I was just another case to him that could get lost in the shuffle. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone look for representation. Mr. Whalen went above and beyond for me. After my case was closed he offered to have one of his office workers teach me how to get my taxes done for free online. An all around respectable gentleman is Kelley Francis Whalen.
