What our happy clients are saying

Good attorney, good friend. I would recommend Mr. White to anyone. Mr. White has completed work for our company for over 12 yrs. He has my trust.

The service I received from David Paul White, was not only excellent, but also far above and beyond what I would have expected from any attorney I could have hired. Not only are his prices fair and reasonable, but he is honest, hardworking, and understanding of his clients. At one point during court, the prosecutor had made up her mind and written out her notes and we had even begun discussing payment and trial options, when David went and spoke to her. There was absolutely no reason for him to do so, he was losing out on payment to continue with a trial, yet he spoke to her about my situation and I was saved countless more fees and court times. I couldn't describe what a great experience I've had with him and I would recommend him to anyone wanting a reliable, competent, and overall excellent attorney to represent them.

I was more than impressed with the services I received from Mr. David Paul White, he was very diligent and ethical in his dealings. He was great, honest, and very professional on all aspects. I highly recommend him, he was worth every dollar I paid him and more! We need more lawyers like him, I would go recommend him in a heartbeat. I am more than satisfied with the outcome. Thank you!!

My good friend that is very prominent in the legal world referred me to David. I can say today that David was a champion for me. He fought for me each day, returned every phone call, and was there for not only me, but for my whole family. He has a great relationship with the folks he works around and that could have only been formed by someone that is honest, sincere and of high moral character.

I was very pleased with Mr. White's work and the outcome. Again, thanks for taking my case.

I was facing multiple criminal charges and thought my life was over. I hired David Paul White and he explained the process from beginning to end, it made the process that much easier. I knew I was in the right hands when I came to his office. David asked lots of questions and was very understanding of my situation. He`s very professional and exceptionally reasonable about giving his time to his clients. David let me know it was okay to call him anytime I ever had any questions or concerns, and he really eased all my worries. He is truly a jewel in his profession because he listens to his client and acts in a clear and deliberate manner to protect not only his client`s interests but their integrety, as well. I wish there were more criminal defense practitioners with the personable expertise that he has. I am very happy with the outcome of my case, he really went the extra mile for me. It`s rare to meet somebody and immediately know they truly have your best interests at heart. Very highly recommended.

Mr. White represented me in two criminal matters. His services were excellent. He was truly professional. Mr. White is highly recommended by me to represent anyone with criminal matter. Thank you Mr. White.

David was phenomenal in helping me with my case. His knowledge and calm demeanor made me confident in hs ability to help in my situation. David was always available to me and always took my calls even when he was on the road. David was always on top of our case. Even though he has other clients, David always made me feel like I mattered and always had my best interest at heart. I couldn't have gotten through this without David.

The personal attention my family experienced by David Paul White and his whole staff was awesomely phenomenal. His personal attention and dedication to our family member's case went a step above and beyond anything we expected.


Working with Mr. White has been a real pleasure. During my entire legal process he has been approachable and professional. Whenever I had question and would call him he would always answer and take time to explain me everything. I'm very happy and satisfied with the outcome of my case. I definitely recommend Mr White to anyone who is looking for any legal help.


Recenlty we needed to find a criminal defense attorney for a family member.  We contacted David White and retained him to represent us.  David was excellent in his representation.  He was very responsive, knows the law and helped us tremendously.  He has a great sense of urgency and is driven to represent you in your best interests.  If you are looking for a criminal defense attorney that has integrity and is honorable, I would highly recommend David White.  We would hire him again with no reservations.
