We thank you again for your effort in assisting us in the purchase of our new home. Of our four home closings, this was by far the most involved. I iterate, we would not have objected had you charged an additional $1000.
We selected you because you took time to talk with me at first contact. I believe it was a good 15-20 minute phone conversation involving a mix of business and personal. In fact, you were the only attorney that asked about what it is we wanted. Every other attorney merely quoted a rate for services. As I recall, you did not even mention money until I asked near the end of the conversation. You give attorneys a good name. I only wish the majority of the other attorneys on this planet had your knowledge and demeanor.

After years of frustration with an incompetent attorney, I had the good fortune of finding Mr. Whelan. His clear and concise communication style led me to hire him after a free consultation and enabled speedy filing of my case. The difficulties of managing a NJ rental property from CA became manageable thanks to his expertise and knowledge about the complex rental laws in NJ. I greatly appreciate his ability to quickly establish rapport with the defendant’s attorney and negotiate a favorable settlement for me. His expertise, professionalism and responsiveness make him a pleasure to work with him and he has my highest recommendation.

In 2005, I was struck by a car while crossing a highway intersection on foot, sustaining serious injuries. My original lawyer waited until the day before the statute of limitations was to expire, to file my case, and then filed it in the wrong county. In 2012, I learned through my daughter (who was working at a law firm and accessed my case through the court website) that my case had been dismissed two years prior because my lawyer failed to provide discovery to the defendant. I then found Mr. Whelan who contacted my original lawyer to take over the case, but there was no response. Given the short notice and lack of communication with my prior attorney, Mr. Whelan obtained a court order restoring my case and permitting him to act as my attorney. He was able to bring my case back to the active list two weeks prior to it formally being dismissed by the court. However, because the case was so old, the court would only allow a very limited time to complete discovery. In a few short months, Mr. Whelan was able to obtain all of my medical records from my providers, arrange for follow up visits to my doctors, secure expert reports and updates, and then settle the case for an amount that was very satisfactory to me. I will never forget my attorney’s dedication to obtaining a substantial recovery for me under a severe time deadline and with no cooperation from my former lawyer. Also, Mr. Whelan was very accommodating of my limited English throughout the case and my lack of understanding of the American court system. My family is currently using his services on another matter and I can recommend him wholeheartedly and without reservation.

Chuck is well versed in business law, real estate law, landlord and tenant law as well as Planning, zoning and land use. Believe me we challenged his patience, creativity and legal knowledge. Chuck’s intellect and ability would be enough. However, his integrity is what impresses me as much, if not more. I would highly recommend Chuck for a variety of legal services without hesitation. We are grateful to be associated with Chuck and appreciate his hard work on our behalf.
