Want to hear an experienced Texas criminal attorney share his thoughts about the law on the radio? For the past several months, Frisco attorney James P. Whalen has been offering his legal knowledge to the audience of 1190 AM’s Ask the Expert, and on Saturday, Nov. 22 at 10 AM, he’ll be back to talk to the host and answer more questions.

So far, Mr. Whalen has spoken about a number of topics, including:

  • Differences between state and federal legal processes. He touched on how federal sentencing guidelines are much more strict than state guidelines, changes to white collar crime laws, and why you should never represent yourself in federal court.
  • Phases of federal criminal prosecution. The six phases include investigation, being charged, arrest and bail, the trial, sentencing, and the appeals process.

If you missed those previous radio appearances on 1190 AM, you can find and listen to them here.

Listen to Learn, but Call for Advice

Mr. Whalen was chosen to appear on Ask the Experts not only because he’s a knowledgeable lawyer who’s been practicing criminal law since 2002, but because he excels at taking complex legal processes and explaining them in a way that’s accessible to everyone. It’s why COURT TV asked him to appear as an analyst, and it’s why you can hear him once a month now on the radio.

But while it can be fun to learn about the law from Mr. Whalen’s radio appearances, you should never take anything that you hear on the show as legal advice. Every situation is different, and if you are in need of help with a specific legal issue related to criminal law, you owe it to yourself to speak with a qualified Texas criminal attorney as soon as possible.
