About Lyndon

Learn Lyndon’s areas of practice.

When you hire an attorney, you need one you can actually speak with. All clients have my direct number and email address, so you won't be shuffled off to a paralegal when you need your attorney.  My legal experience is backed up by extensive sales and customer service experience with two of the largest forest products companies in the the word. This work taught me how to assess a client's particular needs and goals, develop solutions, negotiate with difficult parties, and to make persuasive presentations before decision-makers. These skills learned years ago have served me well in my legal career, whether the case calls for informal negotiations, mediation, or trial. The bottom line: I will return your call, I will proactively keep you informed as to the status of your case, I will be prepared, and I will always level with you about your case.

Great Lawyer
Clay did a wonderful job of helping me with my divorce case. He was easy to get a hold of with questions, did a great job explaining the process, and made sure I was taken care of.

Knowledgable, Trusting, Supportive
Mr. White represe nted me in an unemployment hearing. We spoke on the phone the day before the hearing and he was able to give me an outline of the process to help me understand what to expect. Mr. White also answered all of my questions honestly. This made me feel more at ease and confident in his ability to represent me well. The hearing officer decided in our favor.

CLEARLY EFFECTIVE
From the first conversation I had with Mr. White after I hired him he was very reassuring and gave me the confidence that I could win the case without sweating bullets. He worked together with me every step of the way and we went on to win just as he said we would. I had a great experience and a great result.

Denied unemployment case reversed! Thanks
I was terminated from my job for reporting moldy food at my place of business to my district manager. They made false allegations about me to cover up the real reason for my termination. I tried to get unemployment and was denied and went through several appeals. When it came to a second appels hearing I needed help to assure my case would get reversed. I talked to Mr. White and I was confident after our conversation the he would be the best lawyer to get the job done. Mr. White was amazing. He was very prepared, confident and honest. He reassured me that we had a great case and not to worry. He was right and I won my case. I'm so greatful to Mr. White and I would recommend him in a heartbeat!

Excellent
Clay White is an exceptional attorney. My case was a family law situation. He was detailed and thorough. He paid attention and was on hand at all times to answer questions and concerns I had. At the time, I wasn't getting any sort of visitation with my children and when I hired him, he immediately started working and got us into mediation as soon as possible. His attention to my case and how quickly he got us to mediation was a major plus. He listens and he cares. Genuinely cares about what is going on and he understands the heartache a family endures when going through the court systems. I would highly recommend him to anyone and in fact I already have to several people. If your looking for a qualified, skilled and highly educated attorney then Clay White is definitely who you want on your side.

Unemployment Appeal
Mr White is very personable and quick to respond. He knew what questions to ask and got the point across to the appeals judge. He takes his time to answer any and all questions that you may have and is very patient. He is not only very knowledgeable but also a very nice person!

Unemployment benefits denied
Clay White was absolutely wonderful from the beginning to end. I was upset and nervous because I had lost my job of 14 years and then they were denying my unemployment benefits. He took the time to listen and discuss my concerns before being paid! He answered all my questions and had me ready for the hearing and then he COMPLETLY and very throughly showed the truth! The hearing was today and it could not have went any better. I would definitely call him again if needed. He will really worked hard to make things go smoothly! You won't go wrong hiring him! Thanks again Clay...

consulting on discrimination
After having spoken with several attorneys and really getting the same answers none of which would accept my case. I should have given up then. After having consulted with Mr . White's firm I decided to proceed. They were very helpful in interrupting rules and regulations. Put together proper documentation for filing. Helped me negotiate a settlement.

Finally an attorney who truly cares!
From the very start I was blown away at the response from such a well known law firm. I was honestly treated as if I were his only client. Anytime I needed anything he was there to take my call, put my mind at ease, and see that my voice was heard. From the white glove service to the speedy resolution of my case, I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer or firm to represent me. If you need to be heard, if you're looking for an amazing attorney who will fight your battle for you, look no further. Clay and the Angel Law Firm will be the only attorney you need to call. Five stars isn't enough cause genuineness is something that you have or you don't and Clay is a true supporter of his clients, humble, and has the most caring heart.

Great lawyer.... Goes the extra mile for his clients!
Mr. Clay White was a pleasure to work with, even under the stressful circumstances of termination. I had a very complex dispute regarding termination with an employer. He went out of his way to provide excellent service and took the time to truly understand my situation. Knowledgeable, passion for the law and providing great service along with the understanding of what a unique situation I was part of. He is professional and patient... Composed and trustworthy, all while driving his points home, in favor of his client. Great lawyer!!!

Excellent Legal Representation!
I received excellent legal advice and assistance from Clay White. Having recently experienced a very devastating dismissal by my employer due to complex and unfortunate circumstances, I could never have gone through this ordeal on my own and without the help and guidance of Clay White. He was wonderful in representing me and advocating on my behalf and for my legal rights. I am so appreciative!

EXCELLENT AND EFFECTIVE!!! ATTORNEY.
Mr. Lyndon Clay White is a top notch attorney. He is kind, understanding, very knowledgable and confident. He did an excellent job representing my appeal for unemployment benefits. His knowledge about the laws pertaining to employment law overturned the decision of denied benefits. I would highly recommend him to anyone, family and friends in the future.

Excellent employment lawyer from Concord, New Hampshire (Angel Law Firm)
Three years ago, I was new to this state and began a new position as a nurse in North Carolina. Although I have 25 years of experience as a nurse and health educator, I was faced with a supervisor who was lacked integrity and common sense. I wrote copious notes on what I was being asked to do…outside of my scope of nursing and also illegal. When I had enough, I began searching for an attorney in this area. My husband was an assistant federal prosecutor, and I was given this attorney's name to work with me. Attorney Clay White is outstanding…compassionate and knowledgable in every legal matter. He advised me in the matters of concern and kept in close touch as we went forward together. I felt that there could not be any other attorney that was so easy to talk with about a very distressing matter. I highly recommend this attorney in any legal matter. You will find yourself extremely well represented, understood and respected. I felt that there could be no better outcome than what we achieved in this case.
