Good Ethical Standard and Hard Worker
Mr. Whipple and his competent staff helped us through the complicated probate process. They explained what was happening and what would happen later and made it less of a mystery. They did their best to implement our wishes in the distribution of the estate. We have nothing but thanks for them and their integrity. We would not hesitate to use their services in the future.

Fantastic Representation.
Mr. Whipple handled a personal injury case with a natural ability to ease us through the legal system and to make the process as comfortable as possible during a stressful time. Our family felt very comfortable with his work, and would absolutely use his services again in the future.

Extremely unprofessional if you ask a question he doesn’t want to answer. Tried to hire him for his services. Feel like he doesn’t want money. Taking my case somewhere else. Advise you do the same.
