I had an unfortunate double fatality car accident, I lost two loved ones and another loved one was severely injured. After being hospitalized for almost 5 months, with several surgeries still to come, the D.A then accused me of a crime I didn't commit. I was wrongfully charged with two counts of 2nd Degree Watson Murder, I was not only fighting my depression but TWO LIFE SENTENCES in a STATE PRISON!! With no record as a juvenile, no criminal record or any priors whatsoever, and no DMV record or prior DUI'S. The D.A was determined to charge me for a crime I didn't commit! Debra saw the injustice I was facing and fought for me like I was her son! Debra is soo good at what she does, she is very knowledgable, she is very sharp, she is blunt and direct, and never gives you false hope! She tells it how it is! She got the two counts of 2nd degree murder dropped and the D.A refiled the next day. Debra's work ethic and effectiveness showed when she proved to the judge that I shouldn't have been charged with 2nd degree murder to begin with. She then got the two counts dismissed for the second and final time. After the two life sentences were dismissed I was still facing 27 years in a state prison. Debra brought to light soo many inconsistencies that the D.A used to make an unfair battle in my case. Debra brought the injustice to an end and SHE BLESSED ME WITH A PROBATIONARY SENTENCE AND A COUNTY YEAR. Due to being on good behavior I only served 4 months total. YOU DON'T GO BUY A HONDA AND EXPECT IT TO RIDE OR LOOK LIKE A LAMBORGHINI. WHAT I AM TRYING TO SAY IS, MONEY COMES AND GOES AND YOU CAN ALWAYS MAKE THE MONEY BACK, BUT YOU CAN'T GET YEARS OF YOUR LIFE BACK!!! DEBRA IS WORTH MORE THAN GOLD!!!! She brought the light out of a very dark time in my life! I not once felt insecure about leaving my life in Debra's hands! Thats just the feeling that she gives when she talks to you with all the facts and knowledge she possesses!! Debra makes what may seem impossible POSSIBLE!!!!! I recommend Debra to anyone going through a hardship or an injustice as I faced!!! This is to say the very least of what a GREAT ATTORNEY Debra White IS!!!!!!! She will be the light shinning at the end of your tunnel!!! Like she was and ALWAYS WILL BE FOR ME!!!!

Thank you 100x and more Debra S. White! My family along with myself were so blessed to have found a wonderful, trusty worthy, hardworking Attorney like yourself. You fought till the end and gave us what we wanted and more. Thank you for taking the time to travel from LA to Palmdale for each court date we had. Debra was able to drop my fathers second DUI down to something called reckless driving, my father only had to pay less then $300 in court fess and only needs to attend a program for 3 months. His DL was not suspended which was also very important for my father. Debra, we seen you do your job and you must know your great at what you do. I recommend everyone to meet with her even for advise.

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 White is about as good as it gets. She was able to get my son's 2nd DUI, which involved an accident, knocked down to a wet and reckless and won his hearing with the DMV resulting in no license suspension, something that rarely happens. We were not expecting that kind of result from anyone. In addition, she helped as liaison with the car insurance claim on a total loss leased car. The car was paid off in full.
Debra is the consummate professional. She will not make promises she can't deliver, but she will deliver the kind of results you can only hope for. We had interviewed 3 attorneys in the same day and ultimately made the right choice. Here is an excerpt from an email I recently sent to Debra thanking her,
"Believe me there are no words that could convey all that you did, how you handled not only my son, but ALL of us as his family support and the final outcome of both his court and DMV cases.. Are you kidding me...I still wake up thankful for you every day. You were the best referral from a friend of a retired attorney who said, 'if it were me, I wouldn't go to anyone but Debra.'"
Debra is that attorney who really cares about her clients and it comes through from the moment you meet her. She does her homework and will fight really hard for the best outcome possible. Thankfully she did that for my son!

This is a true experience from a client. Sorry for my english. My case was kinda complicated because it involved in both criminal & immigration area. I was very nervous about choosing who to represent me and I told Debra about it too. If you read the subject, yes ! she made it happened, a dismissal. All I can said is that she is REAL. If you want an experienced attorney with terrific skills and really doing all the fightig for you in the court room to get best outcome just for YOU, she is the one. During the whole process, whenever I had a question or not sure about something, she was ALWAYS there. It's my best decision to have hired Debra as my attorney. Thank you.Highly recommended.

LOOK NO FURTHER! Debra White saved my life and is the BEST criminal defense attorney out there. She has a true sense of humanity and really took the time to understand my unique situation. I observed first-hand the respect Debra gets from other attorneys and also from the Judge and the courtroom staff. Her skills and understanding of the law is exceptional and like no other attorney I've come across. Where others failed, Debra succeeded. You can trust Debra White with your life!

My grandfather used to always tell me, "Everything's easy when you know how. I came to believe that's true. The only problem is, when you need expertise in an area that your not familiar with it 's hard to know where to begin, and there's precious little time to learn what you need to know. The question then becomes; who do I reach out to? and will my choice allow me to be secure enough with the person in whom I'm placing my trust that I can go the distance without being a victim of my own anxieties and bad judgement? At the same time, allowing my representative to do what they need to do to accomplish results that will be in my best interest, A resolution that allows me to put a trying experience behind me, with a minimum of consequences.
I needed an attorney because I was accused of being a hit an run driver. I thought I was being an "ok guy" by declining to exchange drivers' and insurance information with a woman who had hit me. I made a hasty and poorly thought out decision to deal with the incidence in a dismissive fashion because of what I perceived to be minor damage to both vehicles. 35 days later the other party filed a police report and made claims based on prior existing damage to my car. She alleged that the point of impact was my prior existing damage. Since I had not exchanged information she was able to claim that I was a hit and run driver, liable to criminal complaint even though we had some what of a conversation through 3 inches of her window while I was stopped next to her car.
This is a thumbnail description which I offer only to set the stage for what followed.
I have a friend who is a very respected and successful injury attorney that I asked for help. He had some members of his staff help me with the initial legal requirements, but soon after recommended Ms. White to handle the case because he felt because of her demeanor and expertise in this area, she was the right choice with the right skills.
Ms. White attended to all the demands that my case required.
She kept me informed at every step along the way and invested far more time with and for me than she billed.
It was her generosity in this area that allowed me to put the funds together for the compromise agreement that she was able to negotiate between the parties involved. Her ability to negotiate effectively and fairly; allowed me to decline a plea bargain offer and avoid the expense, rigors and uncertainty of going to trial. I have learned a lesson from this experience. The least of which is a reaffirmation of the importance of having a competent guide with you in uncharted territory.
In my experience, I found Debra White to be both meticulous in her approach to all aspects of a case and empathetic to all persons involved. I highly recomend Ms. Debra S. White!

I highly recommend hiring Debra Sarah White. She is by far one of the best criminal attorneys out there. I know this from personal experience and having worked closely with the Government and criminal defense attorneys for more than 20 years.
Debra’s knowledge and insight of both life and law make her an exceptional and effective criminal defense lawyer. I have known her to win unbeatable cases and help clients through life-altering, difficult situations. She is also straightforward, easy to talk to, and is unrelenting in her advocacy. For anyone accused of a crime, hiring Debra White will be one of the best decisions you can make.
