What Our Clients Are Saying



Paul will fight for you. If you are a hard working individual and find yourself in legal trouble and need to be well represented look no further. I was represented by Paul at Fall River court and he got me the results I needed … and the cost was truly affordable. I’m a full-time student only working part-time but Paul treated me with respect and got me the results I needed. It’s rare to find the kind of affordable representation that Paul was able to provide.

Attorney Paul Whelan was wonderful to work with. Protecting one's family is of high importance to all, so making sure you have the best attorney is essential. With his professionalism, knowledge, and experience, we knew we were in good hands. Thank you for all of your help!

Attorney Paul Whelan has been my attorney for 2 plus years and I still have an ongoing professional relationship with him. He is a man of his word, a man of great integrity. I don't exaggerate when I say this, he has a great understanding of the law and puts you at ease during a stressful time for you and your loved ones. I would recommend Mr. Whelan to anyone I know or care about. It’s still nice to know there are lawyers that put that kind of energy and heart into their job. Thanks Paul.
