Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • Great team of lawyers

    “Great team of lawyers here who are well connected with prosecutors in the area that look out for their client's best interests. They also provide alternative pricing for those who can't afford the top lawyers in the firm (and the top lawyers still work with the associates despite the lower price), so yeah great law firm.”

  • I can't recommend White Law highly enough to any and all who need legal representation!

    “People v. V.R. (2014) - "Recently I was lucky enough to have been represented by White Law PLLC, in a legal matter that I hadn't had any success with in handling on my own. I am so thankful and appreciative in every respect on their handling of my case. From the very start I felt nothing but confidence that I was in good hands. The professionalism and respect I was given in my case helped put my mind at ease on a matter I had been dealing with for over 15 years. In a very short amount of time, once I had James White representing me my matter was successfully resolved and my case is now closed! Thanks to his and the entire firms dedication in helping me get a very large part of my life back on track and my future much brighter. I can't recommend White Law highly enough to any and all who need legal representation! Sincerely and appreciatively, V.R." ”
