John White Cares About People
Twenty years ago, a member of my family was facing a crisis and did not know where to turn. When he called the legal assistance line, he was given the name of John B. White, Jr. That was the beginning of a seven-year journey during which John White used his expert legal skills and ultimately saved my relative’s life and the lives of his two children. We were amazed at how John treated us like members of his own family, even giving us his personal phone number and telling us to call him at home in the evenings and on weekends if we needed to reach him. When this need arose, as it did frequently throughout the case, he was as good as his word, and took the call and gave us the advice we so desperately needed. I have seen first-hand the kindness, integrity, and tenacity of John White. He cares about all his clients, regardless of their socio-economic status. I would definitely recommend John White to anyone who is looking for an ethical and highly competent attorney.
