He completed our wills and power of attorney efficiently and effectively in a short period of time and we were able to settle our mothers estate with no problems. We have recommended him to several friends.

When my father died I contacted John. I was in the most frantic state of my life. John gentley went over the estate laws. He assured me that my family could not be put out on the street. He advised me step by step to a miraclous outcome. Everyone walked away happy and we didn't get thrown out on the street. I suggest him to all my friends when they need legal assistance. In situations such as death you need someone who is sympathatic as well as knowledgeable. John has all of those qualities.

Mr. Whalen was sincerely caring and offered appropriate counsel. He made himself available outside of office hours during a trying time. I would recommend him to anyone without reservation.

John has been a Godsend to the family, handling a very emotionally-draining estate administration for a disabled surviving spouse. He has been extremely patient. He provides more than basic legal services; he's been extremely helpful and super-patient, even providing a shoulder for her to cry on when the going gets extra tough, and can approach sometimes-difficult family members with apparent ease. John was the perfect selection for the family's needs, and I would gladly recommend him.
