My grandfather used to always tell me, "Everything's easy when you know how. I came to believe that's true. The only problem is, when you need expertise in an area that your not familiar with it 's hard to know where to begin, and there's precious little time to learn what you need to know. The question then becomes; who do I reach out to? and will my choice allow me to be secure enough with the person in whom I'm placing my trust that I can go the distance without being a victim of my own anxieties and bad judgement? At the same time, allowing my representative to do what they need to do to accomplish results that will be in my best interest, A resolution that allows me to put a trying experience behind me, with a minimum of consequences.
I needed an attorney because I was accused of being a hit an run driver. I thought I was being an "ok guy" by declining to exchange drivers' and insurance information with a woman who had hit me. I made a hasty and poorly thought out decision to deal with the incidence in a dismissive fashion because of what I perceived to be minor damage to both vehicles. 35 days later the other party filed a police report and made claims based on prior existing damage to my car. She alleged that the point of impact was my prior existing damage. Since I had not exchanged information she was able to claim that I was a hit and run driver, liable to criminal complaint even though we had some what of a conversation through 3 inches of her window while I was stopped next to her car.
This is a thumbnail description which I offer only to set the stage for what followed.
I have a friend who is a very respected and successful injury attorney that I asked for help. He had some members of his staff help me with the initial legal requirements, but soon after recommended Ms. White to handle the case because he felt because of her demeanor and expertise in this area, she was the right choice with the right skills.
Ms. White attended to all the demands that my case required.
She kept me informed at every step along the way and invested far more time with and for me than she billed.
It was her generosity in this area that allowed me to put the funds together for the compromise agreement that she was able to negotiate between the parties involved. Her ability to negotiate effectively and fairly; allowed me to decline a plea bargain offer and avoid the expense, rigors and uncertainty of going to trial. I have learned a lesson from this experience. The least of which is a reaffirmation of the importance of having a competent guide with you in uncharted territory.
In my experience, I found Debra White to be both meticulous in her approach to all aspects of a case and empathetic to all persons involved. I highly recomend Ms. Debra S. White!
I highly recommend hiring Debra Sarah White. She is by far one of the best criminal attorneys out there. I know this from personal experience and having worked closely with the Government and criminal defense attorneys for more than 20 years.
Debra’s knowledge and insight of both life and law make her an exceptional and effective criminal defense lawyer. I have known her to win unbeatable cases and help clients through life-altering, difficult situations. She is also straightforward, easy to talk to, and is unrelenting in her advocacy. For anyone accused of a crime, hiring Debra White will be one of the best decisions you can make.
During our initial phone consultation about my TRO, she was already strategizing how to win the case. She had points that all the other lawyers I had interviewed missed or failed to acknowledge. Within the first two minutes of the initial consultation I knew she was the one to choose.
On the hearing date, she introduced herself to the opposing party and their lawyer. After meeting Debra and before entering the courtroom for the hearing, the prosecuting party was already willing to drop the TRO. As they gave us stipulations, we would decline or ask for a mutual stipulation. To increase the pressure while they were trying to decide how to proceed, Debra advised them that we were going to enter the courtroom and wait for them. This added pressure to how they need to handle situation. They agreed to our stipulations before our docket was called.
Debra had the precedent on hand, the proof and the strategy that beat them before it even started.
This may apply to only my case, but she handled it with the greatest of ease.
I have already recommended her to a friend of mine in a similar situation.
I'm very glad research found Ms. Debra Sarah White represented my boyfriend case. She is doing with her passion helping clients. My boyfriend has a medical conditions accused by previous neighbors. Her efforts I'm giving her 101%. She fought for my boyfriend didn't have strike, he didn't has jail time, and he didn't has to go residential for medical conditions. He only has five years probation plus pay fines. The District Attorney about to let boyfriend go three years State Prison during five years probation if he violates. However, Ms. White and I thinking that is too much and won't help with his medical conditions. Therefore, Ms. White worked out plans with District Attorney. So District Attorney dropped off three years State Prison. I believe by facts and actions of Ms. White instead of big advertising. Ms. White and I believe some people abusing the systems to accuse anyone. I took my boyfriend to Probation Department an officer told him very lucky to have attorney because he never see anyone only on probation eventhough being accuse by anyone. Whenever anyone need to find great attorney, and I will be the one to say won't regret to accept Ms. White. I will keep in touch with her because she is a great person. Sherry
Amazing attorney! Straightforward and smart. Ms. White was always one step ahead of the game and ready for any challenge, and there were a lot of them. Ms. White never let me down. On the day of my trial, the DA caved in and dismissed my entire case. Ms. White is the real deal.

Ms White is nothing shot of a miracle worker. Several lawyers (including her) told me that winning a DMV hearing is nearly impossible, but she managed to do it! I was able to keep my license so I wouldn't loose my job. My DUI was reduced to the minimum consequences, and even the judge told me I was lucky to have her.
I had never been in jail or even set foot in a courtroom before, but her knowledge and confidence gave me the strength to get through it. I hope I'll never need a criminal defense attorney again, but if I do, I'm calling her without hesitation.

I've had the experience of working with several lawyers for different reasons. Some for good reasons like to advance my professional interests and some for anxious reasons like to defend me in criminal matters. Given my exposure to working with attorneys from various backgrounds, including some at high-profile, expensive, international lawfirms I can say with total confidence that Debra is one of the best I've worked with. Debra worked to get a potential criminal charge against me settled civilly before ever becoming a criminal case filing. She worked smartly and thoughtfully with all sides of the case, from the police detective, the witnesses, the people who could have sued me, the Sheriff that could have passed it on to the city attorney who could have filed a criminal case against me and Debra managed to keep everyone satisfied and prevented it from becoming bad for me. Like a fantastic lawyer should do, she had my best interest as the only driving force in her work on my case and she did a wonderful job. Debra's clearly experienced, very smart, easy to work with and I felt safer with her on my side. She got the best possible outcome for me and I'm thankful to her. I feel lucky that I hired Debra to be my criminal defense attorney and I highly recommend her.

Attorney White was able to present concise, effective advice specific to my circumstance. It seemed that her ability to do this was of near-supernatural proportions. Highly recommended! Harold H

From the first phone call, I could tell that I was speaking to a real human being, not the usual uncaring money-hungry attorneys who expose themselves within seconds. From the first handshake, I felt relieved that my perceptions of Debra S. White were 100% accurate. She looked me straight in the eye without wavering as she offered her hand to shake mine. In split seconds I was reassured that some people enter their professions for the right reasons. Debra told me that she became an attorney to UPHOLD JUSTICE. She really means it too. How about that in a cynical world! In a calm and confident manner, she laid out our plan and in the end my case was dismissed. In the courtroom she has a magnificent persona that is clearly respected by judges and district attorneys. I have nothing but the highest praise for Debra. The best attorney I have ever encountered. I am grateful that I can take this time in this review to help others in need of an exceptional criminal lawyer. If you want results, performed by one of the nation's finest, please take this advice. Debra S. White is your ONLY choice.

I hired Debra after getting arrested and charged with a DUI two months ago. I am a young professional who very rarely drinks, had a completely clean record, and made a big mistake. After speaking with approximately 10 lawyers (all who informed me that because of a high BAC and my age, my case was "a bad one" and the court would want to make an example out of me), I met with Debra. She was the last lawyer I interviewed and I was emotionally exhausted by the time I got to her office. I explained my situation, all while sobbing, and she immediately laid out a plan of action. She answered all of my hundred questions and elaborated on many things that other lawyers had me confused about. I hired her on the spot.
After two more meetings with Debra (in which I cried again), we accepted a plea that was much better than expected. She fought for me every step of the way and guided me through every detail. She is knowledgable, well-known and respected, and compassionate.
The DMV portion of my case has yet to be completed, but I have complete faith in Debra and I know she will do everything in her power to continue to be my best advocate. Hiring Debra was the SMARTEST decision.
