Love my attorney...
Jeffrey Whitehead has been my trusted legal advisor for 19 years and has assisted me with numerous matters - everything from estate planning to real estate matters, and a few other miscellaneous items along the way. I have found him to be trustworthy, ethical, and a genuinely nice person ... not words often used to describe others in his profession, LOL... but every word I'm saying is true. I trust him implicitly to always have my best interest at heart - as he does with each of his clients. I've observed this on many occasions and am confident in my recommendation.

Client for 20 Years
I first hired Mr. Whitehead when I sold my business to my partner 20 years ago. Although my partner was my "best friend," Mr. Whitehead advised caution. Fortunately, I listened to him. My partner skipped town after liquidating the business and failing to pay me. With Mr. Whitehead's help, I eventually recovered all that I was owed, plus legal fees and interest! I have used his services ever since. When it comes to business contracts, he is great. He is also very accessible, and his attention to detail is second to none. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
