About Me

Alexandra M. White


- Shareholder


Originally from Michigan, I moved to Honolulu, Hawaii during high school and obtained my undergraduate degree in political science from Hawaii Pacific University, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Through college and prior to entering law school, I was a paralegal at a law firm in Honolulu, Hawaii specializing in family law. I developed a passion for family law while serving as a Group Facilitator with the Kids First program in Honolulu, a program designed for parents and children experiencing divorce. While participating in that program, I saw first hand the impact of divorce on children. While conducting activities with children designed to encourage them to open up, I was given the opportunity to listen to their feelings and fears surrounding their parents separation. My experience in that program drove me to attend law school and continues to drive me to put kids first in my practice of law.


I attended my first year of law school at the William S. Richardson School of Law, University of Hawaii at Manoa. I enjoyed clerking in the family law section of the Legal Aid Society of Honolulu during the summer following my first year of law school. I transferred to the University of Denver, College of Law where I graduated in the top 11 percent of my class. While attending the University of Denver, College of Law, I also had the privilege of practicing family law under the auspices of the Student Law Office.


I believe that professionalism is the key to the successful practice of law especially in the area of family law, where children’s lives and futures are often at stake. Many attorneys believe that you cannot be aggressive and act professionally at the same time. I disagree. A lack of professionalism and poor demeanor drives litigation (and the cost of litigation) unnecessarily. Well prepared, aggressive representation is the most effective way to reach resolution in or out of the courtroom.


I have four young children and two teenage step-children who keep my husband and I very busy! During the times in my life when I enjoyed free time, I was an outdoor enthusiast and most importantly an avid beach bum. Before aspiring to become a lawyer, I was a scuba instructor and dive performer for submarine companies in Okinawa, Japan and Honolulu, Hawaii.

    I endorse this lawyer. I have had the pleasure of working with Alex White on several matters in which she represented an impaired client in a divorce matter and I was appointed as guardian ad litem for her client. Alex is a tireless lawyer. She is kind, compassionate, hard working, highly skilled and empathic. She does an excellent job of analyzing cases, determining the strengths and weaknesses and explaining the circumstances to her clients. She is an outstanding advocate but, at the same time, knows when settlement is the preferred course of action. It is an honor and a pleasure to know and work with Alex and I am proud to consider her a colleague and a friend. Alex receives my highest endorsement.
