I had consulted with quite a few lawyers who were unable or unwilling to take on my case; then, I was referred to Jim White. He was able to negotiate enough time for me to sell my house (for considerably more than the mortgage company payout) during a foreclosure, while I was in the process of separating from my husband. During this stressful time, Jim was personable, patient, and always kept me informed. He is highly knowledgeable, well connected, and delivers results. Jim White is the only lawyer I would recommend for any civil legal issue: if he can't do it, he will know the lawyer that can!

I secured James White (referred to as "Jim", by some!) to represent me as the Plaintiff for a corporate identiy theft case in Durham in 2009. Other attorneys from larger firms where familiar with my case, but failed to pick up on the subtle nuances and specific legal issues unique to my case. I choose Jim because he took a very unique view and approach to my case. One of the number one complaints from clients of other firms is the inaccesibility and lack of communication between client and counsel. Jim was very different. Through the duration of my case, Jim was ALWAYS available and ALWAYS responded quickly to my phone calls or text messages. He made himself readily available for impromptu meetings before and after court and if/when my husband had any additional questions regarding the status of my case, Jim did not hesitate to keep him abreast also (please remember, in this case I specifically gave Jim consent to discuss all aspects of the case with my husband). Jim understood how this case, as all cases, affect not only the individual client, but the client's family as a whole. I deeply appreciated Jim's compassion and understanding. In the end, I was happy with the outcome of my case, and if necessary in the future, I would whole-heartedly recommend and nominate Jim as personal legal counsel to my family and friends.
