Background and Philosophy

A GENUINE SUCCESS STORY

“Debra S. White is an absolutely amazing attorney. I was frivolously accused of several violent crimes and was facing five consecutive life sentences in prison. Ms. White was able to quickly navigate through the red tape and prove my innocence. She knew exactly what was going to happen and knew how to handle it effectively. Not only was she able to have my case dismissed before the Preliminary Hearing, but she went on to have an Order of Factual Innocence signed by the judge just six months later. This woman is an angel and there is no way on earth that I would trust my life in the hands of another criminal attorney.”

-- Louis Gonzalez, III

Saving client, Louis Gonzalez, III, from dying in prison is a long road from home for Attorney Debra White whose humble beginnings stemmed from a small farming town in Northern Canada, followed by years of being tossed between foster homes. But saving Mr. Gonzalez is just one example of the many battles Attorney Debra White has fought and conquered in life and in the courtroom. To Attorney Debra White, all the cases she takes are serious cases. Whether a client is charged with a misdemeanor drunk driving offense, or facing life in prison for a serious felony, Debra White aggressively and skillfully fights to protect her client’s rights and to provide the best defense possible. That is why she is tenacious with prosecutors and exacting in her attention to the details of a case. She also understands her cases carry very high stakes for her client and their families, and she is sensitive in all her interactions with her clients as they face the legal challenges together. Reduced to its essence, Attorney Debra White’s philosophy is: “A defense attorney’s job is to craft innovative solutions to seemingly insoluble problems”. Education and experience, however, are not enough when it comes to being a successful advocate for a client. As an advocate, Ms. White believes an attorney must also possess the necessary drive and determination for justice to be a true voice for a client’s rights. She not only holds that drive and determination for her clients, but it is a credo she has practiced throughout her own life. To some attorneys, success against overwhelming odds is a fantasy. To Attorney Debra White, it’s all in a day’s work.
