During this past summer, I received a citation for a misdemeanor offense while in downtown Wilmington. The officer who wrote me the ticket told me that because I was military, sober/DD, & apparently had seen me wait until any remaining people had walked by, if I accepted being guilty, all that would be required would be to get online and pay a $25 fine. After being unable to make the payment online, I called the Clerk of Court who informed me that since it was a misdemeanor I would still have to appear in front of a judge before paying a fine. I appeared in court early, unrepresented, thinking I was simply going to pay my fine and leave. When the judge asked if I had anything I wanted to explain, again based on recommendation from the officer I replied “No ma’am,” and was promptly sentenced to perform community service, pay a significant fine, and 10 months of supervised probation. Before that day, I had a totally clean record, and had never even seen the inside of a court room so I was completely shocked at the outcome; especially considering the information I had been given.
Mr. White was recommended to me by another family member, and within 6 hours of my contacting him, giving him a short biography and event synopsis, he had spoken with the DA gotten the charges dropped completely…my only regret was not seeking his representation sooner. DON’T GO IN FRONT OF A JUDGE UNREPRESENTED. Mr. White and his staff where courteous, professional, & prompt. They treated my case with the same attitude I would have had I been able to do so on my own. I HIGHLY recommend their services to anyone seeking representation in the Wilmington area!!!

Woody was beyond helpful during a stressful time when I was given a traffic citation. I didn't have to worry about a thing as he handled my situation quickly and professionally. I will always go to Woody should I ever need a lawyer in the future.

In the spring of 2008, my freshman year in college, I was hit by a drunk driver while driving two friends home from a party. One of the passengers was killed in the wreck. The other passenger and I suffered from traumatic injuries. Mr. White was highly recommended by my doctor.
My case was handled diligently. Mr. White was adept in dealing with the insurance companies and guided me through every step of the process. At no point was I unaware of where my case stood. I received ample notification from Mr. White's office on the status of my case. Furthermore, I was always able to get in touch with Mr. White whenever I had questions concerning the case.
I think the best aspect of working with Mr. White was his kindness and empathy. He handled my case with compassion and helped make the best of a tragic situation. When I walk into his office now, I feel like I am visiting a trusted friend. He always had my best interest in mind. Even after the case was settled, he showed concern for my well being.
Mr. White was successful in settling my case with the insurance company. He was thoughtful in his approach and helped me receive full compensation for my injuries. I cannot express enough gratitude for his help. Having his representation allowed me to focus healing physically and emotionally without the legal concerns. There are not enough kind words to say about him.
I would recommend Mr. White's services to anybody. In fact, I have had several college friends represented by him in different cases, one involving a roommate of mine. In every case, he took care of my friends and was successful in providing legal advice.

Mr. White was very pleasant to work with. He quickly resolved the personal injury claim, kept us informed during the negotiations and we felt the settlement was fair (and actually was above and beyond my own expectations).

Mr. White did what he set out to do. He treats me like someone he has known his hole life. That is not what how I felt in the past with other lawyers. It meant so much to be treated like a person instead of a number. If everyone was as kind as this man the world would be a good place. If he ever runs for a public office he will have my vote and support. His office is very good as well. They are just as trustworthy, responsive, and knowledgeable as he is. Woody is the man !!!!!!!!

I was limited to the internet while searching for someone to represent us on our case. Woody was not only the first to respond to my inquiries, but was consistently professional and patient with our questions. It was a pleasure to work with him and I highly recommend him. Woody - we wish you well in future endeavors!

After discovering that a case of mistaken identity had caused an administrative snarl and suspended my driver's license -- I called Woody White and asked for advice. He told me exactly what I could expect in terms of timing, best case / worst case, and what it would cost. Not only did he exceed my expectations by getting the case heard in what seemed like an accelerated time frame, he also made sure that the necessary paperwork went in the mail the same day it was resolved so that I didn't have to wait for the corrected information to show up in the DMV computer system. When I checked in with him at various points in the process, he answered my questions within minutes.

Approximately mid year 2010, I was charged by my current wife with domestic violence against her. She claimed bruises were done by me when they were not. Additonally, the claim was for events that occurred over a year prior. Unbeknown to me she had photos made of her bruises caused by her drunken state at the time and blamed me. Subsequent to this secretive evidence, we went on trips, Mediteranean cruises and such. Not once was there a word to me of this until she decided to file DV charges against me and attempt to extort more money in court battles fighting our existing pre-nuptual agreement. Frank discussions of these events with Woody White lead me to believe that first he understood the details of the happenings, he then evaluated with me all the possible ramifications which without competent counsel would cost me hundreds of thousands of dollars based on possible interpretations of the prenup due to these charges. Woody was able to obtain confidential medical records and upon review found the charges to be false. After a lengthly court case when all the evidence was presented by Woody and applying detailed interpretation of the medical records to the case, my wife's domestic violence charge was denied. Woody save me hundreds of thousands of dollars and I truly believe that my outcome would have been very different and not in my favor without his expertise, understanding of the law and application of his intuitive insight. I have at this point a signed Separation Agreement and am able to live my life with my original good reputation intact.

Woody's knowledge of how the court system works, his relationships with the DA, the judges and of course his expertise and guidance got us over the finish line today with a result that were are extremely thankful for. I recommend Woody to anyone who needs a great criminal defense attorney in the Wilmington area.
