About me

     The most important part of practicing law is to treat people the way you want to be treated.  I have spent my entire career trying to follow this motto.

     If you have a problem then we are here to help -- no matter how big or small your issue -- we are here to help.

  • Patrick J. Crowley

    I have represented clients as opposing counsel with Mr. White and while we disagreed on nearly everything, he was very prompt and always truthful and courteous. We each advocated for our clients position and they ended up resolving things without a trial, but there was never any nonsensical games played which made the process run smoothly and saved both clients needless expense.
