I could have not asked for better representation for my criminal matters/cases. Thanks to Mr. James White's efforts, I have a clean record after 6 criminal charges. He is a very knowledgable and experienced attorney who actually really cared about me as his client. He was with me every step of the way and gave me peace of mind throughout my difficult time. He worked very hard on my cases putting in much effort. Every time I was in a courtroom, it was clear as day that Mr. White was the best defense attorney in that room compared to all the other attorneys. Every time I sat down with him I felt like I was talking to a friend, he always made sure I knew exactly what is going on legally and he was also very kind, caring, and knowledgable. If you looking for a good attorney, this guy really knows what he's doing. He has his own legal practice along with his partner Mr. Derek Smith (Smith & White PLLC). I highly recommend Mr. James White to anyone in need of any attorney, he really did wonders for me and I owe him a huge thank you.
I contacted Mr. White with some questions I had. He responded very promptly and gave me great advice. Mr White was a big help to me. Now I refer anyone who needs a lawyer in Washington to Mr. White. He is nice guy and a great lawyer. I highly recommend the legal services of Mr. James White.
I recently got a charge for a dui about 2 months ago. It was my first offense and blew under a .08. Why I hired Mr. White was not only that his prices were the lowest out of the 5 attorneys i talk to but he actually took the time to explain my situation and made me feel comfortable that I was in good hands even before hiring him. With all the other attorneys i had talked to they were all about scheduling an appointment to consulate me and probably were going to pressure me into hiring them, not Mr. White. When I spoke with him over the phone it was all about how we were gonna beat this dui. Throughout my time with Mr. White all I had to do was absolutely nothing and let him take care of it. If im ever in need of help I will be contacting him again, you should too.
Mr. James White handled my case with the utmost professionalism, intelligence, wisdom and knowledge. Mr. White & his Law Partner, Derek Smith, both worked on my case, and they both uncovered multiple discrepancies on the opposing side. James White & Derek Smith always kept my mind at rest, and w mercy and suave grace throughout my entire court experience/dilemma.
In the the eyes of the law, I had made a bad choice and decision, and sometimes I'm anxious- especially when life gets really real. This team of lawyers, Smith & White; James White & Derek Smith fought the battle for me, and we won. I'm so grateful to them both. I'd give them three thumbs up if I had another thumb. Michelle--thanks for the opportunity to provide feedback.
I hired Mr. White almost a year ago. He promised me that he is a fighter because I had not an easy case. I paid him near $10000 for this case. It was first time in my life that I came to this situation in my life so I did read the reviews about the attorney firm it was looking nice. So this is why I trusted him and hired him. But later I did understand that I made a mistake. Because he did do any thing except for 9 month rescheduling my court dates until it reached the dead line and I was facing some jail time because he did do anything for all of those months. So on the last trial he didn't show up and prosecutor had to call him and figured out what its going on. And when he did finally showed up he told me that he is not going to fight for something that he is not going to win. So I that time I realized that I had to hire another attorney right away. So I did hire another attorney, and I paid him a lot less than this one. My case was solved. I just couldn't believe that an attorney can be acting so unprofessional and didn't care at all about his client. When person like me if first time in this kind of situation, he doesn't know what to do and who to hire. But I want to warn you people. Don't waist your money! Like I did, just because I didn't know what to do I was just reading couple reviews. I just hope all the people would write their reviews on their cases. Thank you.
Mr. White helped me so much when I got into some legal problems. He was there right when I called and walked me through the things I didn't understand. James is personable, reliable, professional and was able to get both charges against me dismissed. I highly recommend.
Mr. White is someome I would definetly work with for any legal matter that pertains to his specialty.
I spoke with him regarding a matter and he gave me great advice, calmed my nerves and really cared about what I was experiencing.
If I ever need an attorney, I will be calling him. He is extremely knowledgable and I would recomend him to anyone.
Kind, caring, professional. I highly recommend James White. During my DUI hearings I was scared and anxious. James helped my difficult situation seem more manageable by being very informative and attentive to all my questions and worries. My case was completed and I couldn't have done it without such a great lawyer by my side, thanks James!
James White helped me with a DUI. I was impressed with his intimate knowledge of the system - what to expect from this or that courtroom and I witnessed personal experience with other lawyers and the court first hand. His experience and knowledge compared to the other lawyers in the courtroom was like night and day. His easy going yet responsive manner helped me feel at ease during a very tough time. I am very glad I decided to choose James White rather than another lawyer. I even have lawyer friends who offered me a discount- but James White just felt like the right lawyer for my case- and now that it's over I know I made the right decision with James White.
I was working with James White who handled my case so professionally as empathetically. The outcome of the case could not have been better! I believe it was because James took the time to grasp the entire situation in order to find the best possible solution.
