Every person that I dealt with at the Joseph Law Group, from the front desk to James himself, was classy, intelligent, and showed honest concern for the outcome of my case and my well-being. I had the privilege to work with James personally and found him to be a consummate professional; he approached things with rational and well-reasoned logic, but when we needed tenacity and resolve, he did not let us down...
When you're going through an emotional/financial event such as a divorce you need a lawyer who is willing to listen along with fight on your behalf. John's came highly recommended from other business professionals who have used him in the past. So it was a no brainer! From the beginning Mr. Whiteman was straight forward with possible outcomes that could occur throughout the negotiation period. It's never the "known" that scares you in a divorce situation, it's always the "unknown"....
I was referred to the Joseph Law Group a few years ago and will say that my experience with them has been nothing but outstanding. I retained Tom Elliot from that law group and I couldn’t say enough good things about him and everyone else associated with them. He was exactly what I was looking for in an attorney. Tom was always able to keep me calm and most importantly informed. He had answers to all of my questions and was completely honest with me ...
I was referred to Tom Elliot in 2015. I had just moved back home to NY from CA and was dealing with an alcoholic husband. Sadly, I realized it was time to consult with someone to help me navigate a separation and potential divorce. Tom was a blessing. In addition to being a very smart and capable attorney, he was caring, compassionate and patient. Separating and divorcing was a struggle to come to terms with, Tom was always patient and understanding of my feelings ...
I recently was represented by Mr. Elliot. His entire firm is a class act, and they answer and return calls with great professionalism. Tom was a realistic voice during an emotional process, where the law is not always based upon logic and realities of today’s world. He will tell you what works and what doesn’t and will help guide you to a resolution that you can live with. Someone once said, a good deal is when both sides leave the table unhappy. That is divorce by its’ nature. But you can at least have someone ...
If you are looking for an honest, realistic lawyer who will fight for his client and what is right, John Whiteman is that attorney. When the attorney who was originally assigned to my case had to leave due to a change in location, I was concerned about who would take his place, and if that person would keep my best interests in mind. What started out as a source of worry, became the best thing that could happen for me, my son and my case. John Whiteman was assigned to represent me ...
