Mr. White is the most competent, professional, honest attorney I've ever met. He far exceeded my expectations. His reputation is stellar, he is well known and respected at the Denton County Courthouse in Denton, TX. He gave my case 100 percent of his time and effort, and took my problems seriously. I was rewarded with a reasonable outcome to that I could live with and avoided a trial with mediation.Mr. White is responsive, patient, returns phone calls, communicates effectively. Highly recommend!
