Client Reviews

"I needed a criminal defense attorney for my son. I found Attorney James White by googling. I choose him because he offered a free consultation. Attorney White was very generous with his time answering all my questions and putting me at ease. He did not try to pressure me into hiring him instead he suggested I wait and see what my son's court appointed Attorney could do. I was surprised when he called me back in a few days to follow-up. Attorney White is very professional, knowledgeable in his field, compassionate, straightforward and honest and I felt he sincerely cares about people's lives. When talking to a bails bondsman about my experience with Attorney White she said she deals with a lot of attorneys and Attorney White was one of the best defense attorneys in Tacoma. She said I couldn't have found a better Attorney. I had a very positive experience with Attorney White and would not hesitate hiring him. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants superior representation."

“I contacted James after my charge for reckless endangerment, and right from the start he was informative and reassuring. James worked hard to get me the best possible outcome, and was always very quick to return a call or text. He was straightforward and honest with me about my case, explaining both the good and the bad in a way that was reassuring without being misleading. Overall, I highly recommend Smith and White to anyone who is looking for the most professional representation in their legal matters.”

Not only was he able to defend me in a specific sticky situation in which I hired him for, I felt as though he also went above and beyond in efforts to provide me with the best outcome possible. His calm and professional demeanor offered such a great assurance to myself and those I care about around me. I am completely grateful for his service and I most definitely recommend Mr. White.”

“Dealing with the legal system can be both overwhelming and frightening. Mr. Smith and Mr. White are both attentive, responsive and helped put me at ease immediately.

“James White was all I ever could have hoped for in representation for my DUI. Professional. Respectful. Thorough. Savvy. He was able to work with the prosecutors to come to a fair resolution. I hope I never have to use him again– but if I do, I won’t hesitate.”
