James Whalen is a fantastic criminal lawyer. When criminal law issues arise in my other legal matters, James is someone I can trust to provide my clients with sound advice. If you’re in trouble, give him a call.
James Whalen knows has your back and most importantly… knows the law. If you ever find yourself in a bind, keep your mouth shut and call James. He’ll get you in the right position for whatever crazy situation you find yourself in. Highly recommend.

Being the first time I’ve ever needed the services of a defense attorney, I had no idea where to turn. I feel most fortunate to have come upon Whalen Law Office and Grace Tucker. They guided me through a potentially disastrous situation and ultimately achieved the best possible outcome. If you are need of attorneys that are professional and do what the promise, these are your people.


We’re going to use them but decided to go with the county the case was in but they are very professional and caring mf knows exactly what they’re talking about! I recommend for anyone nervous and confused about what to do to reach out to them for services! The only knock is the price but you pay for what you get which is top notch service trust and believe!


Ryne was incredibly kind, helpful, and understanding in working with me. He gave me all of the documents he needed up front, had one brief meeting with me, and handled the rest for me from there! Ana, the paralegal who works at Whalen Law Office was fantastic as well! Quick to reply and act on whatever was needed. While I hope to not need legal assistance again, I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to Whalen Law Office! Easy 5/5 stars for me!


Ryne and the team at Whalen Law Office are the most considerate, respectful, professional, honest, direct, and best law group team I have ever met. I highly recommend hiring Ryne and the Whalen Law Office if you are ever in legal trouble. They do not take, “No,” for an answer when it comes to your case, and will do whatever it takes for you to receive the best outcome possible. They are an absolute pleasure to work with.


I would highly recommend Whalen Law office for anyone who has run into legal issues. Ryne and their whole staff was amazing to work with throughout almost a full year of hearings and then trial. Ryne and team were able to get the desired outcome of not guilty in trial. I’d come back and hire the Whalen Law Office without a second thought if ever needed again in the future.

I needed an open records request to the Plano police department. When I sent it myself, I was ignored. I asked James to help, his office did get a response, but heavily redacted (and was not even relevant – I think they lied). None the less, by way of questioning them with a law firm, they became aware I was “lawyered-up”, and have not tried to trick me again. I’ve drooped my open records inquiry as it served its purpose – they are on notice. Thanks James.
