Debra was AMAZING the first time we spoke (on the phone). She saw me in person the next day and immediately I knew I had the right attorney for a multitude of reasons...
-Very communicative and explained things SO WELL. Replied to emails or VM's VERY quickly.
-I was scared (obviously) and she helped calm all those feelings down. She's a very caring person and truly looks out for her clients.
-Knew the courthouse my case was being administered at like the back of her hand, ALWAYS perfect directions of where to go and timeframe and advice.
-Fantastic, professional demeanor in court.
-And on, and on, and on...
She fought hard, went to every hearing and brought about THE BEST outcome for me, all things considered.

I highly recommend Debra S. White as a defense attorney.
From the first contact I had with her by phone she was knowledgable, honest, and supportive of my legal concerns regarding my son being falsely accused of a crime. Ms. White answered all my questions at that moment and understood the importance of providing us with an appointment with her.
Meeting with Ms. White in person for the initial consultation I knew right then she was an angel sent from heaven to help protect my son. Ms. White was extremely knowledgable and sincere regarding the legal process my son would have to go through in order for him not to be convicted of this crime. Ms. White was honest and empathetic towards my son's situation and helped us understand she would fight full force for his freedom. Ms. White was able to get my son's case rejected (no conviction) and most important his freedom. We are very thankful for her hard work as a defense attorney and dedication she had for our legal problem. This false accusation was the worst nightmare our family could have experienced and pray no one ever goes through this, but we were blessed to be able to obtain the BEST defense attorney, Debra S. White.
Ms. White was always available by phone, email, or if in person appointment needed.

I searched for a top rated criminal attorney close to our house (as I knew we would need to see them several times) for my husband, who was charged with a felony. Debra's information came up and I contacted her after reading her website and bio. Upon speaking with her, it was obvious to me that we needed to meet with her in person, she was genuine, sincere and really seemed to want to discuss the case in more detail to see how she could help. When we met with her, she advised how we should proceed, what the defense would cost us and the next steps in the case. She was honest and direct right from the start.
Debra was professional, experienced and knowledgeable regarding the charges in the case. She sat with us, in our initial meeting, for about an hour taking notes and talking through strategy in order to devise the best defense possible. With my husband's past criminal record, the case was going to be a challenge to win and Debra put forth every effort to get us the best possible outcome and she succeeded; the case ended with a dismissal. She also found that one of his past felony charges could be reduced to a misdemeanor, which she filed the proper paperwork for, as part of the current case. Debra is an awesome attorney, a super smart lady and, as my husband put it, a "Varsity All-star!" We can't say enough good things about Debra. We would recommend Debra to anyone who found themselves in need of a good criminal attorney.

Debra is a consummate professional. She has an excellent grasp of the law, which she enhances to great advantage with her compelling courtroom presence. I have referred a number of clients to Debra, all of whom have thanked me profusely. I never hesitate to send clients her way, and would hire Debra myself should circumstances ever warrant the need. I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer.
