Our young adult son was arrested on charges of misdemeanor under the influence of a controlled substance.
My wife researched AVVO.com, interviewed Attorney Whelton, and we agreed to choose Whelton for our son’s representation based on Whelton’s veteran experience, his areas of legal expertise, and the positive client reviews posted.
Attorney Whelton was very professional and courteous in working with us. He was flexible with his fees and availability. He and his staff were very efficient and thorough with administration, communications, and paperwork.
Attorney Whelton took time to listen to and explain the legal process with our son. After advising us on the legal ramifications and consequences, Attorney Whelton came up with a defense strategy which ultimately culminated in all charges against our son being dropped!
We are extremely satisfied with the outcome! Thank you, Attorney Whelton!

Mr. Whelton is a very honest lawyer. He will explain everything in detail, and what to expect during the court day.
Him and his staff are awesome. They communicate with me, and answer anything that I have concerned with. My case was dropped. Thank you so much Mr. Whelton.
I would definitely recommend him anybody to represent them in the court.

I was in a huge legal mess and was facing a felony charge. My future was in jeopardy-I wasn't sure if I would ever be able to find a job or not, I was certain I would be going to jail for a while. My mother found Chris, and after reading the other reviews and seeing how much good he has done, we knew he was the perfect choice. Even in the consultation, he was honest, realistic and reassuring. When it was time for my first court date, he showed up and went over the case piece by piece. He went over all of our options. We gave him two must haves: No felony, and no jail time. He said he would make that happen. Sure enough, he went and spoke with the judge and came out a few minutes later with the best news I ever could have hoped for-no felony and no jail time! Throughout this case he has been completely available to answer my questions and help when needed. He has also been very human in understanding some of the things I'm going through outside of court and has offered support. He has gone above and beyond what was asked of him and i don't think there's any better option out there when it comes to attorneys. If you are in the unfortunate situation of facing criminal charges, do yourself a favor and hire Mr. Whelton. You will rest easy at night and will receive the best possible outcome or better with your case. Thank you for saving my future, Chris!

Husband got a DUI last July almost 4 times over legal limit and crashed the car, luckily no one was injured. While the case was waiting to be heard ended up with a DV case as well. DA wanted 90 days in jail after much back and forth Mr. Whelton got him down to 10 days.
I am impressed at how easily available Mr Whelton has been and quick to respond to any questions or concerns throughout the nerve wrecking process. In my book he is the best attorney money can buy.

I contacted the law office of Christopher Whelton after my DUI arrest on July 24, 2016. Their so-called "jail mail" letter was the most straight-forward and honest sounding of the tide of offerings I received. A very nervous phone call to them immediately put me at ease. At the initial consultation I was treated with courtesy and respect and was not at all made to feel like a - well, like a criminal - but instead a valuable human being that landed in a regrettable predicament.
I was not promised the moon but given learned, experienced, unpressured advice about the DUI procedure and my case prospects. I retained Attorney Whelton and after worrying and pacing for days I was comforted to know that my world was not coming to an end after all. Now that the court hearings are concluded, I am immensely relieved and pleased with the outcome of my DUI. While I did not get off Scot-free, I feel that my penalties and grief was reduced to the absolute minimum and that a just judgement was reached. Almost all in my DUI class suffered considerably harsher consequences for their wrongdoing....
I was not aware of the enormous amount of paperwork, legwork and general entanglement involved in a DUI "adventure" but could not imagine getting through the ordeal without the expert guidance of Mr. Whelton and his knowledgeable and compassionate staff. My calls and rambling, pained emails were always promptly answered with invaluable counsel covering each concern. You won't get hugs from Chris Whelton but will get the utmost professionalism and the best results possible. I am convinced that Whelton Law exceeded expectations and even voluntarily attended a restitution hearing on my behalf well after the criminal case was settled.
It was undoubtedly a rotten decision to drink and drive but hiring Whelton Law was certainly the hands-down best one I've made in a long, long time.

Attorney Christopher Whelton was honest, fair, and compassionate when working with me, and fighting for me, on my case. He embodies a genuine service to the community. The work that he does and all that he has accomplished really is truely inspiring. He has become a great friend to me and I will always be grateful for his service.

The above are just a few words I would use to describe Mr. Whelton. Our teenage son fell into a bad crowd at school and had a major lapse of judgment. Since this was his first time involved with the legal system it resulted in a Deferred Entry of Judgment program. Christopher did an awesome job in negotiating this for us. As his parents we agreed and supported this, then we worked with our son to remove him from the old crowd and let him learn from his mistakes, which he did.
Our son had almost completed the DEJ program when an altercation between him and another person occurred. We knew who to call and promptly hired Christopher again.
Our son was charged with felony Assault with a Deadly Weapon (his fists). Our son was simply defending himself against a group of bullies sent to fight him, but because he was on DEJ and the other party sustained more injury our son was mercilessly targeted. Our son's future was greatly at stake here.
Christopher did an extraordinary and outstanding job defending our position! He masterfully took charge, gathered all the details of the incident and was in constant contact with both the DA's Office and the Probation Office as he appeared on our behalf. He worked through the legal system and his expert knowledge and experience guided all of us through this process. He kept us updated along the way and responded to all of our questions. We are extremely happy with the outcome and finally sleeping at night again. Thank you Chris for helping us save this young man!

I retained Attorney Whelton to represent me for a first time DUI offense. I was visiting the Riverside California area from out of state. The sifting through the massive volume of "jail-mail" was overwhelming to me and my wife. After reading the reviews of Christopher Whelton we decided to call his office for a consultation and at the end of the conversation we decided to hire him. It turned out to be a very good decision. He thoroughly and patiently explained everything related to being cited for DUI. He was always available to discuss anything related to my case and answer any questions and address any concerns we had along the way. He and his staff were extremely helpful throughout the process leading to what is the best possible outcome for my very bad decision to drive a car while intoxicated. They continue to be so even now as I proceed with fulfilling the terms of my probation. So to Attorney Whelton, I just want to say "thank you very much."

Christopher listened to my story and was very knowledgeable about my type of case. He has a wealth of insight and information. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an honest, trustworthy, and has his client's best interested in mind.

From the moment I entered his office Mr. Whelton was straight forward on some of the possible outcomes of my case(both positive and negative scenarios), His knowledge of the DUI law as well as court procedures were exceptional, which enabled me to get a recovery program vice being sent to state prison. Additionally, he has remained with me to ensure that I have met all requirements of the court, as well as my well being. I would recommend him to all my friends and anyone that was to ask for a professional, honest lawyer.
