“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, and from our first meeting, I knew I could trust him fully. He was always honest, open, realistic, and a man of his word. He delivered everything he promised, and stood behind what he said even when times got tough. My family and I were always treated with respect, and I always felt like our interests were being protected by him. He was always there when I needed him, if I had a question, and was very dedicated to helping me and my family. I cannot say enough positive words about a man who took what was the worst experience of my life, and made it a little easier for me. I would highly recommend John Whiteman if you are looking for strong and honorable attorney to protect you and your family’s interests.”

“Although going through a divorce is a very painful time in one’s life, Tom Elliot showed genuine compassion to my situation and was extremely thorough in getting me a fair separation. He covered every base and left no stone unturned. Things that I didn’t even think of, until they arose years later, Tom had included in my divorce to protect me from further litigation. When talking to many other people who unfortunately had to go through the same thing I did, I can honestly say that I feel I got the best divorce agreement, and I attribute it all to Tom Elliot and his experience and diligence to get me what I deserved, a fair separation where I could go on with my life and be happy again……. Which by the way, I found a couple years later. Thank you Tom.”

“James and I graduated law school together many years back. I have always referred any of my family and matrimonial clients to James and have gotten nothing but positive feedback and high praise for his caring attitude and competent representation. I also had James represent me in my own family law matter. Not only did I find James to be a consummate professional, who achieved a fair and great result for me, but I found his compassion and level of empathy extraordinary and comforting in what was a very emotionally trying time in my life. While no one ever wishes to “need” a family law attorney, when the need arises, I would recommend James without reservation, based on his competency, professionalism, and compassion.”

“Prior to finding John Whiteman at Joseph Law Group, I felt hopeless, helpless and completely overwhelmed about all the restrictions and obstacles that would affect my much needed divorce. As soon as I met with John I felt 100% more empowered, informed and weightless and honestly nothing changed throughout the entire process from start to finish. John was recommended to me by another attorney so I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised and how easy he made the process. As a perk, everyone in the office is super professional and were in constant communication with me about how long everything would take and had no problem answering all of my questions. I would highly recommend him.”

“I retained John Whiteman for a tumultuous divorce case. Clearly, I was in over my head being that my ex was a high level finance executive and cleverly tried to pull the wool over my eyes while also being intimidating and scary. John was a godsend in his abilities to provide not only legal and financial assistance, but even emotional support and understanding that went well above and beyond. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and relatable. He provided me with an exemplary agreement while seriously needing to fight fiercely for my rights. I am forever indebted to him, and highly recommend him for anyone needing an outstanding matrimonial attorney.”

“I was involved in a multi-state, multi-attorney, high conflict, child custody divorce case and worked with James Joseph. In what was a terrible period in my life, James Joseph’s assistance was one of the few bright spots. His recommendations were always on the mark, he is detail oriented, he works quickly, he always knew the right thing to say to offer reassurance when it felt like everything was going wrong and most importantly, he gets results. I encountered many attorneys during this case and there is no one I would recommend higher. Of note: if you are going through a divorce, you will find that you interact with the attorney’s office staff a great deal, and his office team is first rate.”

“I have referred many people to James for counsel over the many years that I have known him and I have never been disappointed with the feedback. Each one of those recommendations has come back to me with countless praises. James is smart, level-headed, and steadfast in his work. Anyone seeking counsel in a matrimonial or family law issue would be foolish to use another attorney.”

“I worked with John Whiteman for three years while going through my divorce. It was a long and exhausting process and there were many delays and bumps in the road from the other side, but John was always there to help me through it. He was attentive to my phone calls and concerns, always responding promptly. He was very well-versed in the law and well-prepared for court hearings and appearances, he was also calm and reassuring during this emotional time in my life. Knowing I had John on my side, made things that much easier for me. He never brushed me off or treated me with anything but respect. I never felt like just another number to him; rather, I was a valued client and together, as a team, we were able to finalize my divorce and meet my needs, financially. He was always great at communicating what was going to happen and what to expect at all times. This also helped put me at ease. He is also very meticulous and dedicated to keeping up with current laws, which is a necessity in his field.”

“My divorce was extremely acrimonious, and I began with a very gung-ho lawyer who I won’t name. I gave him a non-refundable deposit that lasted all of two days before I came to my senses and realized that going to war over the end of my marriage wasn’t going to benefit myself, my wife, or our teenage daughter.

James was a great representative, who tried to get the best possible arrangement for me, given that my ex-wife was very unreasonable and difficult to work with. He was careful, consistent, and communicative: all things that you may not appreciate in a divorce lawyer until you have someone who isn’t any of those things. He was an early user of email before it became an accepted work practice, for example.

Going through a divorce is a very emotional and difficult experience, even under the best circumstances. I would highly recommend using James for your lawyer.”

“Joseph Law Group was extremely understanding during the billing process and in NO WAY billed me just to bill. There were few times where Joseph Law group saved me on legal fees and documented as “waived.” Those type of ethics are simply not present in the legal profession today. I highly recommend Joseph Law Group and John Whiteman.”

“Mr. Elliot is professional, knowledgeable, and courteous, as well as an all around pleasant person to deal with. Our outcome was more than favorable and he worked extremely hard to help me in any way possible and kept me informed every step of the way.”

“John P. Whiteman in this law group was such a pleasure to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable, supportive and worked very hard to ensure that my daughter received everything the children and her deserved. Mr. Whiteman was very responsive to email and phone calls even when on holiday break when things had to be executed in a timely manner. He certainly made things easier through this stressful time. I would certainly recommend anyone to John Whiteman and his firm. Thank you John!!”

“I can’t say enough about my experience with Joseph Law Group. I came to them at a very difficult time of my life. I was with a previous attorney for a few years and felt as if my rights were not fully represented. Additional to that, losing my Father, I was very lost. I sat with Joseph Law Group and explained my situation and listened to what they said I could expect if they represented me. I decided to go ahead and hire them. I will say this, from the start I began to feel very comfortable with my decision and I trusted my attorney’s plan for moving forward. Whenever I had a question about the so many unknowns in a divorce, which is an emotional process, I felt comfortable with my attorney’s answers and plan. In the end, I could not be happier with the outcome. I highly recommend Joseph Law Group, Not only was my attorney amazing, but the office staff and whomever I dealt with were all very accommodating and pleasant to deal with. I am now on my way to the next Peaceful chapter of my life.”

“The attorneys and staff at the Joseph Law Group are consummate professionals. Not only do they have a keen understanding of the law, but they recognize the emotional toll that litigation can have on their clients. This is quite unique in a process that can fray nerves and cause a great deal of stress. While hiring an attorney is never a pleasant event, I can honestly say to anyone who is faced with the need for quality representation, that the team at Joseph Law Group is superb. As such, I highly recommend the firm.”

“I worked with James Joseph and his team in 2011 – 2012. I found James to be easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable and professional. James listened carefully, gave sound advice, and came up with workable solutions. The matter was resolved to all parties’ satisfaction in an expeditious, fair and respectful manner. James conducted himself at all times with the highest integrity and professionalism, was always pleasant and up beat, kept all parties calm and on track and made a difficult situation easier for everyone. I had an excellent experience with James Joseph and his Firm and highly recommend them.”

“A divorce procedure is complex, emotional, and mostly an inefficient process in New York. Dealing with a difficult x, John not only kept his cool and always displayed a level of professionalism, but was tough (really tough) when he needed to be in representing my case. His attention and accuracy to details and numbers is what stands out the most. He was responsive to questions and always kept me in the loop about filed papers. Joseph Law Group has a tightly woven group of staff professionals who also walked me through a long process. Without reservation, I highly recommend John to get you through this tough time.”

“Throughout the divorce process John has been very professional, organized, thorough, and most importantly, always there to answer questions or provide updates so I never felt left in the dark. He presented options clearly and always explained the rationale behind his advice, while leaving the ultimate decision to me. I thought it was also noteworthy that if a question came up outside of his purview, he let me know that it was the case and where I could seek a definitive answer.

While the opposing attorney frequently made mistakes, had out of date information and disappeared for days, John was always spot on with everything in a timely matter and stood out all the more for it. With his guidance, we were thankfully able to come to an agreeable settlement without having to go too far into a trial.”

“I retained John Whiteman at a very emotional time in my life when my husband’s ex-wife was falsely accusing us of committing horrendous things to their son (whom my husband has sole custody of). I was scared to find an attorney-would he believe me? Does he know I’m telling the truth. Would he fight for me?

Embarrassingly-I cried the first time I met John. But I can honestly say I never would have made it through the entire experience (and trial) without him. He handled every aspect professionally and still managed to make you feel comfortable and safe-as an emotional person that was very important to me. John truly cares about you as a client and will handle your matter as though it were for his own family member. He was recommended to me by my husband’s attorney, and I am eternally grateful for him being put into my life. We had a successful outcome from the trial, and I couldn’t have asked for more!

Wendy in the office, who I spoke with on several occasions, is also very comforting and helpful. She too was also very responsive to my needs and sensitive to my situation. I recommend John Whiteman and this firm for any legal matters they cover. While I hope I never need to retain John again, I know that if I have to, I am in good hands.”
