Great Employment Lawyer!
Ethan White represented me on a discrimination and retaliation lawsuit. From our very first meeting, Ethan demonstrated exceptional expertise and a deep understanding of employment law. His professionalism, empathy, and dedication were evident throughout the entire process. Ethan provided clear guidance and support at every step, ensuring that I fully understood my rights and options. Thanks to Ethan, my experience was reassuring and resulted in a favorable outcome for me. I highly recommend Ethan to anyone in need of an employment attorney. His commitment to the best interests of his clients is truly admirable and commendable.

I hired Ethan to represent me in an employment discrimination case. He took the time to thoroughly understand the facts of the case and always responded to my questions in a timely, thoughtful manner. He was highly prepared for all meetings and appearances. With Ethan's hard work, we won a settlement on my behalf. I highly recommend him.

Highly recommend
I had a very difficult case being terminated by an employer in an “at will” state. But I really felt that I had a good retaliation case. I called several employment attorneys and I couldn’t find anyone that would even listen to me. Then I called Emery Law. Ethan White was the first attorney to truly listen to me and ask questions and try to understand what happened in my situation. He took on my case and not only fought for me, but believed in me. He wasn’t afraid to go up against a large corporation, and he brought my case to a resolution that I was very happy with. I highly suggest him to anyone

Excellent experience!
I hired Ethan White to advise and represent me in a case in which a colleague breached the terms of a contract with me. Ethan was invariably friendly and available when I needed help, and worked with me to resolve the issue very satisfactorily. I can give him only the highest recommendation!

Outstanding attorney
Ethan White is an outstanding attorney. He helped me with my lease for a new medical practice and was excellent from start to finish. I have no legal training, so I appreciated his patience and willingness to explain even the simplest concepts. I think his greatest strength is his ability to connect with his clients and speak to them on a person-to-person level. This is a rare quality in a lawyer. In addition, it was clear that he knew the law and had extensive experience in the field. I trust him completely and give him the highest recommendation possible.
