    “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." ”
