While we occasionally assist former clients with other areas of law, our focus is DUI Defense.  If you have questions about a DUI case in Sacramento, Placer, Yolo or El Dorado Counties give us a call.  You'll be pleasantly surprised when you do because we will be giving you information without pushing you to hire us.  We believe that people should make an informed decision when choosing an attorney.  We take a limited number of cases each year, giving us ample time for each person we represent.  Our goal is to have the best clients, not the most. Our clients all have my cell phone number and are invited to call as questions arise, rather than being restricted to Monday through Friday between 8 and 5. 

 

My father, Denis H. White, Sr., is now formally retired but I still visit with him regularly.  He attended night law school while working and raising me, my brother and four sisters.  Then he spent 28 years with the Sacramento County Public Defenders Office, until his retirement in 1998, where he handled every type of criminal case that came through the system.  You simply can't buy the type of experience he brought to this office, for the years he continued to keep his bar card active.

 

My father's father, Judge William A. White, died while I was in law school.  His graduating class at McGeorge Law School in 1937 consisted of exactly eight people.  His years in private practice were spent in the area of Probate Law.  In 1961, he was appointed to the bench in Sacramento County and served in that capacity for the rest of his working years.   What I learned from him, as a boy and later as a man, was less about the practice of law than just treating people fairly and honestly.

 

Our office is devoted, almost entirely, to DUI defense.  On rare occasion, we get involved with run of the mill misdemeanor and felony criminal defense cases for former clients.  If you have questions or think this may be the right law firm for you, please call us.

I was in a pinch 10 years ago and this attorney gave me truth that I could not find elsewhere
A good attorney does not tell you what you want to hear. They tell you the reality and what you do with that is up to you. I was in real trouble around 10 years ago with my driving record, and was thoroughly confused with the driving laws that seemed ambiguous in many different occasions. Mr. White cleared that up for me and although it was bad news for me, it was exactly what I needed to know. I've had my full driving privileges back for around 8-9 years now and my record will be 100% clean in Dec 2021. The situation was not serious enough for me to retain an attorney, but if it were, I would definitely want an attorney with Mr White's characteristics.

Client
I hired Mr. White back in 2017 thru recommendation from family lawyer (Patrick J McCarthy) who I also recommend... And boy am I glad I did if it’s your first offense or multiple offense your gonna get the best result from dismissal to the best deal outthere... Mr. White goes the extra mile he walks you thru the whole process from beginning to end. He doesn’t sugarcoat anything he tells you right from the start what your looking at in your case. He doesn’t keep you in the dark and is not outthere just trying to take your money and send you on your way like some attorneys outthere. If you can get a dismissal or the best deal outthere he will let you know as well as save you money in the long run. He gives you his personal number which you can call/text anytime if he doesn’t answer right away he gets back to your text or call ASAP... Remember the saying you get what you pay for with 25+ years your getting the best representation outthere. Mr. white excepts all major credit cards and will also work with you if you need a payment plan... 4 years later I talked to Mr.White about an early Probation termination and Mr. White was on top of it as if I hired him from the start and Mr. White didn’t ask for no money. Denis did all that simply out of love and Friendship. So after you hire Denis White you just don’t have the best DUI Lawyer outthere you have a friend you can call or text anytime about criminal questions or just general questions about life and he will gladly answer them on his personal number. Thanks for everything once again Mr. Denis White...

Excellent communication and guidance
Denis advised me throughout my DUI case, which took about 8 months to resolve. He guided me through the paperwork with both DMV and the court, and always kept me in the loop. Even when I hadn't heard from him in weeks, I had faith that he was on top of whatever was going on and the delays were likely from other parties involved. He's very knowledgeable in his field of expertise, good humored, and an excellent communicator. If you're looking for a DUI attorney in Sacramento, Denis is a solid choice.

I got arrested for a DUI in February of 2019, and Denis was very helpful throughout the whole process. He was extremely patient, and helped me with getting my license back. When I first got my DUI, I was extremely embarrassed and did not know what do do. Denis was very patient with me and handled my case very well.

Beyond expectations. Always kept in touch.
When I found myself in need of an attorney I asked around. Denis came highly referred by a friend of a friend. I reached out online and he reached out within a day. Because I work regular business hours we kept missing each other. He then arranged for a call on a Sunday! He walked me through everything I would expect to face and left it to me whither to continue with hiring him. Although I had the info already, it takes an attorney to navigate the possibilities. I did hire him and it was worth it. He walked me through every step, kept in touch and replied to every call, text or email same day, if not immediately. I visited his office twice and never stepped foot in court. He got the best outcome under the circumstances and exactly as he had predicted in our meetings. He even handled fixing my missing a deadline for next steps. I could not recommend Denis higher. I made a lot of calls and interviewed several attorneys. I am so pleased with this process with him. He handled everything to the point I literally almost forgot to stress.

Extremely satisfied
Denis White skillfully handled my DUI case in November of 2012. He was able to get a charge taken off that we felt was unfair and misleading. Just recently, I was hired at a company who inquired further into my 2012 DUI situation. I contacted Denis White to see if I could possibly retrieve any records he still had from my case and he was extremely willing and prompt with sending those documents over to me. Not only did he assist with sending my documents but he also drafted a professional and sophisticated letter for me to give to my new employer. This letter gracefully highlighted the fact that the circumstances surrounding my incident over 6 years ago would not be any valid reason to disqualify me for being considered for employment. Denis White did this out of the goodness of his heart and took this time out of his busy schedule to help me after all these years since my conviction. I would recommend his services to any and all looking for an attorney with integrity, reliability and poise.

Denis is amazing!
I’m a 20 something female and pretty computer literate, so I checked online DUI attorney reviews before I made my phone calls to DUI attorneys. Denis White shows up prominently on Google and all the listing services like Yelp, AVVO and BBB. Also, he only handles DUI cases unlike many of his competitors that do a little of this and a little of that. I wanted someone that knew the law, the court and all the people that would have a hand in deciding what would happen in my case. I chose wisely, as I learned while my case progressed through the system. I’m embarrassed to say that the facts of my case were kind of nasty and I did some things that I’m not particularly proud of. In fact, I was horrified when I read the reports. Denis suggested that if what I was reading was inconsistent with how I normally behave, then I should consider writing a letter of apology to the officers involved. That little tidbit shaved 25% off the sentence the prosecution originally proposed. Mr. White also arranged things, so as not to interfere with my job or college. After court my boyfriend drove me to his office to pick up the court papers. We needed to make a couple of changes but the court wasn’t open yet and my boyfriend had to get to work. I followed Mr. White around the courthouse while he got people to do things for us. He knows everyone and that really speeds things up. Then he drove me to sign up for work project and they even know him there. They gave me a cushy work project assignment, so I don’t have to pick up trash in the hot sun over the summer. Then he drove me home. I’ve definitely learned my lesson and won’t need a DUI lawyer until it’s time to have my record expunged but I’ll definitely refer anyone I come into contact with to the Law Office of Denis White. This lawyer knows the law and everyone connected to the system. Sometimes it really is who you know!

Denis White
I hired Denis back in November of 2013 after I received a DUI. I cannot stress enough how helpful he was through the whole ordeal. He was able to explain the process to me thoroughly, kept my best interests at heart, and fought for my rights. Even after my sentencing he made himself available, to include the expungement process. If you ever find yourself in the same position as I was, I would absolutely recommend that he is your first call.

DMV Issue
I needed some help with a DMV issue, ending up calling Mr. White's office. My intent was to schedule a phone consultation. However, Mr. White was in the office and spoke with me immediately. Mr. White was extremely helpful, a wealth of information along with directing me in the way I should go to resolve my issue. Most important was the follow up email from him. If I should need his services I would not hesitate,

Exceptional Caring Legal Representation
Four years ago I was pulled over and arrested for DUI. I was embarrassed and humiliated, but not just for the standard reasons, although those are good too. Until my retirement, prior to my DUI, I worked for DMV and part of my duties involved working with DUI offenders. I knew better than most what could happen to me if my case was not handled properly. I contacted a variety of attorneys. I was looking for someone who could and would work tirelessly for me. Someone who understood the ins and outs of the system and knew how to achieve a fair and just outcome. Too many attorneys handle DUI's as just an added service, some had little or no actual experience in DUI cases. Denis insisted that I come meet with him before I made a decision to hire him or not. I did not reveal my past work experience with Denis at that time, I wanted to let him explain my options so that I could judge whether or not he could help me. I was impressed beyond belief. Denis clearly outlined my options and made some recommendations on how I could proceed. His understanding of DMV procedures and the realities of how DUI cases are actually handled was spot on. I hired Denis to represent me and he was able to have my charge reduced to a charge of wet reckless. I was borderline on my BAC at .08 but I was not falsely arrested. Three years later when my probation was ended, Denis prepared for submission the documents necessary to have my record sealed. Denis White cares. He is a professional in the best sense of the word. I enthusiastically recommend you contact Denis White if you should unfortunately need the services of an exceptional DUI attorney.

I would hire him again if needed, but hopefully I won't have to.
I received my first DUI and didn't know how to begin the process. I went to Google to search for DUI attorney's and came across two potentials, but Denis seemed to have a more personal touch based on the reviews. I am so glad I chose him. I called for a consult and he was so patient in explaining the process and what he can provide for me. He was not judgemental at all and was able to sympathize and was so kind and caring. Even though he had a lot going on, he always made time for me and let me ask as many questions as I wanted. He never promised me anything, but to do his best to get the best results possible. He was able to lower my fees and DUI classes substantially and was there every step of the way. I am still in the process of things and he even went out of his way to meet me to get the document I needed for home detention. If you ever need an attorney, Denis should be the first one you call for a free consultation!

Response from Denis White March 11, 2017
Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you chose me too. My job is about helping people and I genuinely enjoy the company of the the kind of clients that come to me. Sacramento DUI Attorney is more than a domaine name to me. It's all I do and I'm as happy as you that we were able to get the results we did.

Kindness Matters
I found Mr. White via an internet search. Once I read his rave reviews, I felt I no longer needed to search further. My free consultation by phone was as others have said informative, to the point, and conducted with professionalism and kindness. He spoke with me for a very long time, answering any concerns I shared. Such a difficult and sobering event was made so much easier with Mr. White's wealth of knowledge, experience, confidence and compassion. The process was completed smoothly and I was informed every step of the way. Any questions I had were answered immediately and efficiently. He made a worrisome stressful time so much better for me. He is a kind man, above all, and under normal circumstances I would call him a friend. Thank you, Denis, for all your help. My error was committed with such bad decision-making. My decision to hire you was one of the best decisions I've made. Mary

I had a conversation with Mr White for only 15 min and it was unbelievable, that 15 mins with him gave me so much information's that I didn't know never discuss with my attorney. I really think that any people with DUI should consider Dennis White for your attorney. He will tell you exactly what you need to know... Thank you Dennis White for doing what the good attorney should be doing and that is to represent every DUI cases.

DUI
Denis helped me with the DUI process and made it easier for me to understand exactly what I will have to deal with. He was there whenever I needed him or had a question. He would go to court for me and with me and did everything as quick as possible because I just wanted everything to be over with ASAP. He helped me find the best places for my classes as well as where I can get a breathalyzer installed. After my three years he helped me with the process to get my DUI expunged as well. I'm so Happy to have hired him and felt relieved after meeting him.

Go With Denis If You Want To Make Life Easy
After receiving a DUI I took to the internet to find a DUI lawyer in Sacramento. The first lawyer I came across was Denis White. After reading all of the wonderful reviews about him I decided to give him a call and hopefully get a consult for free. I soon reached out to him and not only did he give me a consult for free but he talked to me on the phone for over an hour just to understand what happened in my case, gave me recommendations as to what I should do, and said to talk to my parents and call him back if I chose to go with him. No pressure whatsoever. We obviously decided to have Denis represent me and it was the best decision I ever made. He not only made the process so easy but he also did an amazing job of keeping my family calm while he went to work. I never once had to ask Denis for anything, maybe to clarify here and there but he absolutely knew what needed to be done and took care of everything and always made sure I knew what to do on my end. He even hired a private investigator and said he would pay out of pocket if it wasn't extensive work. I was never charged for it. All told the criminal case was made to disappear and the DMV granted a Set Aside. No criminal penalties, no loss of driving privilege and no insurance rate hike! I didn't even have to pay to get my license reinstated. Denis really is an honest, caring, and knowledgeable lawyer. He has the connections and smarts to take care of his clients. 10/10 would recommend to anyone who needs a DUI lawyer, it will be the best decision you'll make too.

Excellen treatment, answered all my ansers, he truly care about the outcome!
I cannot say enough about Mr. White. From the moment he took my call he put me at ease. He truly and really cares about your wellbeing. He could not take my case unfortunately but referred me to a local lawyer. He answered all my questions and I believed his answers, meaning sometimes you get answers that your gut tells you that’s not right. Mr. White is right by the courthouse in Sacramento and has been there for years. I will await to see what the referred lawyer says, but I am still comfortable with the referral. Thank you Mr. Dennis White

Helped me through a difficult time
I was charged with a DUI while I was up at UC Davis attending classes. I thought that this was surely going to bring a drastic change in my life (i.e. could not afford classes, not be able to drive to my internships and jobs, etc.). Denis not only was capable of getting my DUI reduced to a wet reckless, but assisted me through out the court process, the fines, the classes, and still stays in contact to me to this day (5 years later!). I have nothing but positive things to say about Denis and suggest anyone who has been convicted of a DUI. He is 100% transparent, trustworthy, and thorough. I am fortunate to have had him for my attorney. I was capable of continuing through school as well as keeping all of my jobs and internships. I understand I made a mistake , but he shared the same belief that I shouldn't have my whole life be drastically affected because of it.

"I met Denis when I was a District Attorney. I experienced first hand his determination and persistence in fighting for his clients. Since leaving the DA's office I have had an opportunity to work alongside Denis. He is extremely knowledgable of the law and works very hard to stay up to date on all the latest changes in the law. I frequently call Denis to talk over cases. I highly recommend him."

"I endorse this lawyer. I have had the opportunity to work with Denis on multiple DUI matters. We work together on local DUI cases and other various criminal matters. Other lawyers may be competent to handle a case, but no one will be as responsive, compassionate or as hard-working. Every day I've watched Denis work tirelessly to get his clients results. He knows where to push and when to push. If I was arrested I know where I'd go."
