“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.”

“James Beglis did an excellent job with my case! Whenever I had any questions, he responded to my inquiry the same day and always provided a clear explanation. He made a confusing and stressful situation very, very simple and my case was closed in less than 3 months—even during this pandemic! I absolutely recommend!”

“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.”

“I worked with Kathy on a very complicated and emotional divorce and custody. My case was difficult for a variety of reasons and Kathy was able to navigate through all the difficulties and constantly reassure me that everything was going to be okay. And, she was right. She was very responsive to all my questions, and I had tons. I never had a problem reaching her and talked to her “after hours” a lot as well. I truly felt she cared about the wellbeing of me and my children. She prepared me fully for every court hearing and clearly explained all the different processes within the family court. I would 100% recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney. Her years of experience are very evident in her work. A+++”

“My experience with WhitbeckBennett has been, and continues to be, extremely positive. My attorney, Mr. Beglis, has worked very hard for me. I can only wish that I had the sense to retain him for my Divorce, I would be in a completely different situation at this time! He is handling my custody issue. The level of comfort he has given me is worth everything to me. I truly feel like he is standing in front of me as a shield and his only function is to protect me and fight for me. This feeling, for me, is priceless. Thank you so much Mr. Beglis for giving me peace.”

John Whitbeck has been extraordinarily kind and helpful as well as knowledgeable as we sought his help dealing with the mental health and criminal justice systems.

Absolutely loved working with David Marquardt and his team! He answered any questions, calls, emails, and texts promptly even on the weekends, and did everything he could in my custody case for my daughter. He only had 12 days to work on the case and it was VERY messy! Yet, he still did everything he could and helped me with my daughter. Thank you all so so much!!!

Words cannot describe how THANKFUL l I am for Tappan, Miranda, and Susan. After dealing with another attorney for years… Tappan stepped in and demonstrated what a TRUE LAWYER is capable of achieving in just a fraction of the time. The team was super diligent in attending the case, reviewing all documents, acquiring evidence, with the discovery process, and constantly communicating with me. Their COMMUNICATION IS EXCEPTIONAL. They made sure I was informed and understood all details of the case… Tappan and the group accommodated me and supported me, assuring me I was in good hands and that I could finally trust my legal representation. Tappan may achieve my case to be dismissed an outcome I lost hope on as this case has been going on for so long. I truly recommend him. He is a miracle worker and I cannot say THANK YOU enough. He gave me hope and a solution when I was losing it, and words can’t describe how PROFESSIONAL, DILIGENT, and just AMAZING of a person he and his crew is. I cannot recommend him enough. Son Increibles!

” Elizabeth Lancaster has represented my husband and I both in different cases, and I want to start by saying she is AMAZING at what she does. If you are looking for someone who is on your side and will do whatever it takes to get the best outcome then she is your answer. I will never use anyone else after hiring her. Also very responsive which is great.”

“I highly recommend Mr. Whitbeck and his team to represent your side in a divorce. I needed a lawyer to defend and protect me from the constant barrage of attacks and demands from opposing counsel and wife and he did that swiftly and effectively. I also needed a lawyer to be cost effective while at the same time, ensuring that my case was properly attended. Lastly I needed a lawyer who was willing to listen to my arguments, to believe in them and where necessary, incorporate them into his own. John did all that and more and I couldn’t be more satisfied with his handling of my divorce. “
