He has worked diligently to build a fabulous reputation and proven his knowledge of the law through his diligent practice in the area.

“For my divorce case, I had three different attorneys – the last was John Whitbeck. John was far superior than the previous two and also the opposing counsel. John is an excellent litigator and negotiator. Specifically, he had the judge reverse a previous decision based on his interpretation of the law and reached agreement on several contentious topics with a very difficult opposing counsel. John works closely with his client to develop a strong legal strategy and masterfully presents your case to the judge. I owe the outcome of my case to John’s tireless efforts and incredible talent.”

“John Whitbeck was my third attorney for my divorce process. This is honestly one of the most painful experiences to go through. I appreciated John’s straight forward manner in presenting the choices. It helped cut through issues to define emotional vs strategic good decisions. Being clear about the process and outcomes is essential to seeing a way ahead. I am thankful for his work and support through this tough time.”

“John Whitbeck represented me on, what most people would agree was, an extremely complicated and emotional divorce and custody case involving abuse and infidelity by my ex-husband. From the moment, I sat down with John, I felt that I was heard, understood, and respected, not just by John, but by his entire team. I was supported and informed through every step of the process. John was a true advocate for myself and my kids. He fought for and achieved true justice for us. Today, my kids and I couldn’t be happier, and we truly owe a great deal of that to John and his team.”
