Whatley Drake & Kallas LLC has the expertise, knowledge, skill and resources to develop and litigate a complex case through to verdict. The firm has earned a national reputation for being bold and fearless in taking on large corporations, established institutions, and the financially powerful whose actions have resulted in injuries to others. While the firm is proud of its many outstanding clients, it also welcomes the opportunity to serve as co-counsel with and to accept referrals from other lawyers.

The lawyers at Whatley Drake & Kallas are committed to using the substantial resources at the firm to achieve meaningful change to our society. In recent years the revolutionary settlements that Edith Kallas and Joe Whatley negotiated with most of the managed care companies in the country, with extensive injunctive relief allowing doctors to practice medicine with protections from the abuses of managed care provide the most noted examples of the firm using litigation to achieve meaningful change.

However, the lawyers at the firm have devoted their careers to this end. Joe Whatley devoted a substantial part of his career representing historically black universities in their effort to expand and improve their programs and facilities to overcome the effects of de jure segregation in the South. Jack Drake began his career representing mental health patients and obtaining pathbreaking institutional relief to insure that those patients are treated in the least restrictive environment consistent with their condition.

Whatley Drake & Kallas regularly brings its resources to bear to remedy corporate and governmental abuses and to recover significant monetary amounts for its clients. Moreover, the firm prides itself in going beyond the recovery of money to achieve meaningful change that makes a difference not only to our clients but to our society as a whole. Today, the firm is pursing claims with respect to the subprime lending abuses and the dangers of lead-contaminated toys that American companies had manufactured in China and then sold to our children. They are attempting not only to provide remedies for the victims of those abuses but also to obtain relief to insure that similar abuses do not happen again.
