The fact that I'm writing this confirms I made a bad decision (DUI); however, things could have been a lot worse without the Denis. I can say without hesitation that Denis told me in our first conversation what would happen with my case, and he was right down to every detail. Believe me, the picture I had painted in my mind was much worse than the outlook and hope he provided. After spending nearly an hour discussing my case by phone, I was ready to enlist his services. Despite the fact that I was ready to commit, he insisted that I meet him in advance to make sure I felt comfortable with his representation before he asked for one penny. His contacts, experience and insights were invaluable. He confidently allayed my concerns and did so realistically and honestly. He did not make me feel like a criminal. Most importantly, he was there for me. He answered the phone or returned my calls within minutes whenever I had a question or simply needed reassurance. He took the time to listen to me and address my fears in an honest yet realistic manner. This may not sound like a lot, but after giving a $500 deposit to a local lawyer who would not deal with me directly and left his secretary as my only liaison during one of the most frightening times of my life, his attentiveness and compassion made all the difference. I have talked to many people who have gone through similar circumstances and suffered much worse consequences that Denis skillfully avoided in my behalf. I didn't spend one minute in court; he mapped out the steps I needed to take to minimize distraction in my life; and he provided me with solid contacts I needed in order to fulfill court ordered mandates. In fact, he made it possible for me to drive myself to nearly all of the court ordered appointments I was required to fulfill. I know by talking to others in my same situation that I was extremely fortunate to have Denis on my side. I cannot emphasize strongly enough how talented, compassionate and competent Denis is, and I would recommend him under any circumstances. As a closing note, Denis was actually referred to me by a competitor of his. That should speak volumes with regard to the level of respect he has earned. Do not commit to a lawyer before talking to Denis.

I got a second DUI 5 months after the first and Mr. White was able to keep me from doing any jail time. My BAC was .36 and I was also charged with evading a police officer. I simply did not see him and when I did I needed to find a safe place to pull over. He got that charges dropped and I only had to do community service. Beyond that, since we went to court he has continued to stay in touch and advise me regarding what to do with my DUI class and has gone to court again for me at no charge to get that postponed. I hate to admit it but this was not my first DUI and Mr White was more than I could have asked or hoped for in an attorney. He is very lnowledgeable about DUI law and knew much more than my last attorney. If you are searching for an honest hardworking lawyer that will keep your best interest in mind Denis White is the one to call. I am more grateful to him than I can put into words.

Years ago Denis did a great job on my case. We were able to Plea to a lesser offense (wet and reckless) and I assumed that would be the end of our relationship. Well, I was wrong. A week ago Denis gave me a call to let me know that I would now be eligible to petition for my wet and reckless to be expunged. Without asking for any fee, and with no underlying agenda, he setup an appointment for to come to his office and walk me through the paperwork and told me step-by-step what to put on each line. All I had to do was go across the street to the courthouse and file the paperwork. He definitely went the extra mile to make sure my case was completely handled start to finish. It was a nice surprise and showed that he really put that extra effort forth. I never expected a call 3-4 years later for more assistance. I would highly recommend Denis to anyone in need. I would not go to anyone else. Thanks Denis!

I’m pleased to be writing this message about my respect and appreciation for Denis White’s and Amy Belghley’s skill, knowledge and personal integrity. I was comfortable working with them and then relieved to have them support me in getting the DUI charge dismissed.
There was no alcohol or mind bending drugs -- but an unusual circumstance that lead to my arrest. They were so patient and interested in truthfully documenting details and facts related to my arrest and explaining it to the District Attorney’s office. Equally important, Denis was willing to work to get the charges dismissed rather than accepting the easier and more common solution -- plead to a lesser charge. I highly recommend their services.

Denis was recommended to me by a close friend who works in law enforcement. His exact words were, "if I was arrested for a DUI this is the lawyer I would hire". Denis was always available when I needed him, and he never took longer than a day to respond to my calls/emails. He left no stone unturned when investigating the facts of my case and I could tell he read over the police reports with a fine toothed comb. He truly took the time to exhaust all avenues in helping me avoid a DUI conviction. Denis and his staff proved to be very knowledgeable in DUI law, and I don't know what I would have done if I didn't hire his law firm for my DUI defense.
With the help of Denis I was able to beat the DMV hearing and keep my license. The criminal hearing has not taken place as the DA has not filed charges yet. But when they do I am sure Denis will be there to help me through the process. I would definitely recommend Denis to anyone who is currently contemplating hiring an attorney to help fight a DUI case.

I am very pleased on how Denis and Amie represented me. They kept me informed through the entire process. Denis and Amie are honest and very informative. Denis's experience shows in how well he understands the legal process and the court system. I am very thankful to have found Denis's firm. I would recommend Denis to anyone that needs a lawyer for a DUI case.

After being arrested for a DUI 3,000 miles away from home, I had very little direction on where to go, what to do, and who to turn to for help. I had very little knowledge on the process and I didn’t even have anyone to ask for advice. After the first attorney I contacted hadn’t gotten back to me, I wandered into the next DUI attorney’s office I could find, which is where I met Mr. Denis White. From the moment I walked into his office, I was put at ease - not only did I readily get straight-forward knowledgeable advice with a friendly approach, but Denis also refused to take a penny from me because he truly believed my case would be declined and that my charges would be dropped (given the details of my case). He called the DA’s office right then and there and found that they had my report but a decision hadn’t been made yet. He remained certain about the outcome and informed me enough so that I could feel certain as well (he even offered to speak to my mom on the phone to answer any of her questions). A couple days later, I called Denis and he was able to confirm that my case was indeed rejected. It’s not often that you come across a human being in today's world who treats you (and your vulnerable position in an unpleasant circumstance) with the level of compassion and respect that Denis did, let alone an attorney. Even if my case had gone differently, I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to represent me. I am beyond grateful that fate was on my side the day I went looking for an attorney because the experience couldn't have been better and I would want nothing less for anyone facing the same thing!

First of all I would like to thank Denis and Amie for all their effort on my case.A month ago when I got arrested for a DUI I was so terrified and thought of leaving the county forever.But one of my friends suggested to hire a lawyer I started researching attorneys in AVVO and found that Denis is the best at DUI cases.I spoke with Denis right away and felt that he could help me. Next day I went to his office and explained my case and he gave me possible outcomes of the case. I was really amazed at his expertise on DUI cases and hired him without hesitating.Both Denis and Amie are so friendly, kind, ethical, understanding and honest persons I have ever met.Denis was kind enough to drove me to Sheriff's work project location from his office when I have not had a ride to get there. Thank you once again you guys. I highly recommend Denis White to anyone who is in need to be represented for a DUI.

My uncle, a lawyer in Sacramento, put me in touch with Denis White when I needed help getting my DUI conviction expunged. Denis went above and beyond my expectations. He was so friendly and understanding, and I could tell that he truly cared about helping me achieve my legal goals. I cannot recommend Denis White highly enough for whatever legal council you are seeking. Give Denis a call! You won't regret it!

I have never in my life gotten into any trouble. So a few months ago when I got arrested for a DUI, I was extremely terrified and thought my life was over. Right away I got on the Internet and started researching attorneys. I spoke with eight different attorneys over the phone along with made appointments to meet with them all face to face prior to making a decision.
From the second I walked into Denis Whites office, both Amie and Denis put me to ease. I really genuinely felt that they both cared about me. They both comforted me and reassured me that my life wasn't going to be over regardless of the outcome of my situation. After meeting with Denis and Amie I knew these were the people I wanted to represent me.
Denis was always there to answer any questions I had. He always made himself available whether it was through telephone, text, or email. When Denis received new information in regards to my case, he always called and emailed to give me updates. Denis was there to listen to me vent about how stressed I was and was there to help me through this tough time. I was afraid that I would have to take time off of work to deal with fighting a DUI, but I didn't. Denis went to the police station and got any records he needed, and went to court and the DMV Hearing for me. He made this whole experience bearable.
With Denis's help, the criminal case was rejected and he later won the DMV Hearing. I can't even express in words how thankful and happy I am with the representation I received. Hands down Denis is the BEST attorney in Sacramento.
