Laura Keys, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I proudly endorse this lawyer. Mr. White is a fantastic attorney who is not afraid to go to bat for his clients. He is an exceptionally skilled advocate who is devoted to the practice of law and the community. Mr. White has a heart of gold and is always willing to lend his expertise and advise to colleagues.
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
