WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

“I was very interested when I saw news coverage of a case Mr. Whitney represented regarding a bed bug infestation. Due to this, I reached out for a free evaluation. This was the best decision I had made in regards to fighting for the rights of myself and my daughter. I was contacted immediately and treated with respect and compassion for what I had been experiencing in regards to the negligent landlord who had a major bed bug infestation in an apartment that my 1 month old daughter and I were sharing. This bed bug situation was a miserable time for me, as my focus should have been on welcoming my newborn into the world. Mr. Whitney and his attorneys were patient and empathetic and concerned for our well being throughout the representation of our case. I would definitely use the Whitney attorneys again and highly recommend their firm to anyone who is experiencing similar traumatic events.”
