Client Reviews

John B Whalen, Jr.

I have known John for twelve years, and during that time I have utilized his services on four occasions including probate and trust planning matters. He is extremely knowledgeable in matters of the law, and his attention to detail is second to none. My family and I have been truly pleased with his work, and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone requiring his expertise; and, in fact, we have.

Dedicated to the Law and to his Clients

John’s assistance was invaluable to me recently during a sudden and rather emotional event in my family’s life. Our beloved mother suffered a massive stroke, literally days before she had “planned” to sign her will, advance directive and medical power of attorney. As her primary care giver, you can imagine what a “tail spin” I was in.

Even though I am in Delaware, John took the time to research my issues and offer advice as to what my next steps should be. Between my work schedule, trips to and from, first, the hospital and then the rehabilty/nursing home, conversations with John took place at all hours. Even then, John reassured me with his knowledge and willingness to do whatever it took to keep me sane and reach the best possible outcome.

Knowledge and Compassion

Dealing with one’s mortality is never an easy subject to broach. John’s ability to zero in on what is important, while remaining compassionate and caring are attributes that hard to come by these days. He made the process light and very professional. When people ask me about writing a will, power’s of attorney or any general estate planning questions, I always refer them to John.

Caring to the client—Caring to the case.

I found John to be extremely helpful and forthcoming with his legal knowledge. He was willing to understand the issues and to give professional insight into possible options for a solution. Not only did he answer my questions on the legal advice site, but also followed through with a phone call.
I would highly consider engaging this attorney if the eventual need arose. One has to “care” about the client, and “care” about the case in order to bring about the best solution; I believe John would do both.
It is evident that he has a great love for the law, a wicked keen wit, and sense of humor to boot !
