Judge Whalen presided over my child custody case many years ago. He was very bias and one sided with his decision. Did not care to hear from the child regarding their wishes, never appointed a guardian ad litem even though case worker recommended it, gave one parent sole custody of the child with no option for the other parent to have reasonable visitation. was very rude and made demeaning gestures in the court room. Worst judge ever. He should have never been on a court room bench.
