Jim White formed the Law Office of James C. White in 2009 after working as a litigator and bankruptcy attorney at a large North Carolina law firm. His firm’s practice focuses on complex litigation, lender liability and debtor bankruptcy. Clients are individuals and businesses who have suffered serious financial injury. For some, a lawsuit or aggressive negotiation can resolve a dispute or right a wrong. For others, Chapter 7, 11 or 13 bankruptcy can save their home, help rebuild their finances or repair a business. The firm’s philosophy is simple: they do not care about the size of the case but take cases that can have a distinctive, lasting and substantial impact. Formerly a business litigator and bankruptcy attorney at Moore & VanAllen, Jim has represented a wide range of business clients. Before attending law school, Jim was a management consultant with a well-respected print media consulting company, and was a research analyst with McKinsey & Company, the international management consulting firm, where he performed market and competitive analyses, and worked extensively with financial institutions and media. Jim recognizes the importance of representing clients pro bono who could not otherwise afford legal representation. He has represented the ACLU of North Carolina, and is a member of the Durham Bar Association’s public service committee. He received the Business Leader Media Pro Bono Impact Award and was named Pro Bono Attorney of the Year by Legal Aid of North Carolina, Durham County. Jim is rated AV Preminent by Martindale-Hubbell, was recognized by Business North Carolina's Legal Elite in Bankruptcy Law, was listed in Super Lawyers for Civil Litigation, and was recognized by North Carolina Lawyers Weekly as a member of the Legal Elite.
