  • J Dirk Schwenk

    I have worked both with and against Mr. White during the past decade. I have always found him to be a very thorough, effective and knowledgeable advocate. I also respect the fact that, even on cases where we are working against each other, he is consistently polite and professional. He is an excellent lawyer.
