2014 Top One Percent


2014 Top One Percent

Out of more than 900,000 attorneys across the country, less than 1% percent received this prestigious designation.

Mr. John B. Whalen, Jr., Esq. has been honored for excellence as one of North America’s Top Attorneys, an award for continuous professional recognition – an accomplishment realized by the Top 1% of American Professionals.

Lawyers recognized for excellence have remarkable professional accomplishments, great peer evaluations and more. Over 1 million North American lawyers work in businesses, government, and privately in solo practices and firms, large and small.

Of the very small percentage of lawyers who are ever publicly recognized for excellence, just a handful have been selected as a North American Top Attorney.

Mr. John B. Whalen, Jr., Esq. is considered to be one of the best and has achieved this hard-earned recognition.

In my opinion, you can’t do better.

John Whalen brought a wealth of experience, knowledge and integrity to my situation, and was able to answer all my questions honestly, whether the answer was favorable to my case or no.

In a situation dealing with more money than I’ve ever seen, and matters of which I know not the first thing about, it was a great relief to have such a wonderful resource at my disposal!

In my experience you simply can’t do better.



If you want to work with someone who will take time to understand your issue/request, who will offer professional advice, who deeply understands law, flexible and friendly, hire John.

You will not be disappointed.

You also will not be surprised by hidden fees as he charges per case, not per hour.

I hired John to do my will, living will, and power of attorney, and I am very pleased with the quality of these documents and convenience of the process.
