  • Jonathon Scott Miller

    Mr. White and I attended law school together. He has an excellent command of the law and analytical skills to match. Thankfully I have never had to face him on the other side of a matter, but he would most certainly be a worthy adversary and require me to be at the top of my game. He has also earned a reputation for demonstrating the upmost professionalism and ethical standards while zealously advocating on behalf of his clients. I highly endorse this attorney.
