James F. White

Attorney in Norfolk County

James F. White

Jim White grew up in a working class, blue collar neighborhood in Cranston RI. One of five children, his parents taught him the value of hard work, education, and the need to help those less fortunate. While attending BU, he worked one and sometimes two jobs. He graduated BU in 1982 with a degree in business. James continued at BU School of Law, graduating with a JD degree in 1985. Jim White is a licensed attorney both in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Upon graduation, he began working for a small plaintiffs' PI firm, which also focused in workers’ compensation. From 1987 until 1992, he worked as ‘In-House Counsel' defending insurance companies and their insureds. Defending insurance companies was an invaluable experience for James. It gave him the opportunity to witness firsthand how insurers evaluate and defend claims. He tried numerous motor vehicle accident and personal injury cases in District Court, Superior Court, and Federal Court First Circuit.

He left the insurance company because he witnessed firsthand how the unrepresented, or the poorly represented, injured people failed to be fairly compensated for their injuries. He has since dedicated himself to counseling people who have been injured at work, were injured due to the fault of someone else, and who need claims for Social Security Disability.

If you've been injured at work or suffered a personal injury due to someone else's negligence, you need the advice of an honest, compassionate advocate. Call James. The initial consultation is free and he takes cases on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not have to pay him anything unless and until he wins for you. If he doesn't get you a recovery, you don't pay.

"I am beyond impressed with Attorney James White and his office. He was compassionate, understanding, and very knowledgeable. We had quite the 8 year case with fights over two surgeries, PT, benefits, court hearings, meetings, etc. 

Jim fought very hard for my rights and benefits that I would not have been able to fight on my own. Jim always made time to chat with me even if it was something minor but still a concern to me. 

Jim's paralegal, Kristie, was outstanding. She got back to me immediately, made the necessary calls on my behalf, and was very caring as if my case were the only one on her desk, but I knew otherwise that Jim's office was always busy. 

Businesses will always try to cheat you out of your rights and benefits so always lawyer up. I am very glad I met Jim and am very thankful to both him and his staff. I feel we all became friends and hope to remain as such. 

Thank you Jim and Kristie for all the hard work you put into my case and thank you for standing up for me. I don't know where I'd be today without your guidance and knowledge."
