Our office regularly assists those interested in setting up an LLC of their own. Other than the obvious use of using an LLC to run a business, LLC’s are also...

In the life of a small business, there are times when you will only be able to bridge the distance between where you are and where you want to be with additional resources. These can be very stressful times, especially if you have bootstrapped your small business and have not had to raise or seek out capital before.

The Art of the Prose


When it comes to the law, there is not a single area where the ability to craft language, play with prose, or narrate stories, is not essential. Reading the following two passages, which convey the same legal information, which one is more compelling to you?    “Defendant, an elderly gentleman, was confused by the legal   requirements, but now has counsel. Defendant requests that   this honorable Court, pursuant to Civ.R. 15(A), grant leave   to file an amended answer.”    “Defendant, a grandfather, was rocked by a storm of   allegations, shocked by the claims made and acted in good   faith.  While he attempted to answer Plaintiff’s complaint   properly, with no guidance, he was cast adrift in the sea of   litigation, without a lighthouse leading to safe harbor. Defendant   has now found...

What is the White Law Office Annual Small Business Conference?

What is the small business conference

The White Law Office Small Business Conference (SBC) began eight years ago with the idea of connecting local business owners, their teams, and entrepreneurs with local resources. We, at White Law Office, firmly believe in the potential of the small business community.

As navigating the legal, financial, risk management, and regulatory environments around small businesses have become more complicated, we saw a need to provide education and empowerment to local small business leaders. What began with thirty people in a conference room...

The Lost Art of Conversation

White Law Office

When is the last time you had a great conversation? Because we live in an age of texts and emails, it sometimes feels like great conversations are a thing of the past. I will be the first to say that I am a big fan of technology, especially when I can consolidate a half hour phone call into a three-word text, but all of this technology means less time having conversations. And then to further complicate matters, we seem to be living in a time when we are more divided than ever. ...
