Say hello to the Mastermind behind our entire operation: Mr. Jeff Whalley! Jeff is a family man, a diehard Dallas Stars fan, and our managing attorney, in that order. He’s a Tacoma native and an active member of the South Sound, committed to making a positive impact on our local youth and their families.
Before opening Whalley Law in 2011, he graduated from Seattle University with his J.D., as well as his MA in Sports Administration and Leadership. Inspiration to open his own firm came from a mentor while in undergrad at Utica College where he played hockey. This is where a young Mr. Whalley realized the kinds of positive change the practice of law can create in communities like Tacoma, while utilizing the work ethic instilled from playing hockey.
Jeff has litigated cases across the state of Washington, including in the court of appeals. While Jeff’s practice focuses on high conflict family law and injury cases, Jeff is no stranger to highly contested litigation in other areas of the law as well. He prides himself on his work ethic and taking the most difficult cases that other attorneys won’t touch.
Jeff’s dreams include opening a school based in non-traditional learning, and maybe seeing his young son Gavin out on the ice one day. Go Stars!
