1200+ DUI Cases 23 Years of Legal Experience

What Our Office is All About

Very few attorneys really practice solely DUI defense, it’s just a small part of what they do. DUI Defense is the only thing my office engages in. What sets me apart from other DUI attorneys is the specialized training and continuing education from seminars we attend throughout the year.

When you retain my office you will be working directly with me. At my office we subpoena all the records that we believe the District Attorney would need to prove a case against you. That may include videos, breath testing records etc., we go way beyond just ordering police reports from the DMV.

There are better ways to handle the issues associated with a DUI conviction that may save you a great deal of time, stress, and money. If you have found yourself in this situation please contact my office and see how we may be able to help you.

Sacramento DUI Lawyer – Denis H. White

Never has it been more important to have someone on your side looking out for your interests. There are simply too many people going through the criminal courts for the accused to truly get a fair result without someone speaking for them.


If this is your first time dealing with the criminal justice system as the accused, it’s like being in a foreign country and not knowing the language. If you’ve been through the system before, without your own attorney, you know how it is to sit and wait patiently for your turn to talk to a lawyer who simply has too much to do. With a private attorney, it may not be necessary for you to even go to court.


If there is a warrant for your arrest and you have not been booked, let us help you make the arrangements. We can assist you with finding a bail bond company that will get you through the process with a certain amount of dignity and speed.


In the MISDEMEANOR courts you can go to court alone but there is no effective way for you to share your side of the story with the district attorney or the court. If you try, the court will stop you so that you don’t say anything incriminating on the record that can be used against you. You will also see they do not have time to do more than tell you what you are charged with and what the offer from the prosecution is if you plead guilty. If your side of the story is important to you, call The Law Office of Denis White at (916) 444-3300. It does make a difference!


In the FELONY courts, judges are hesitant to let a person represent themselves because of the potential for a state prison sentence. The Public Defenders and Indigent Defense Attorneys paid by the county are overwhelmed and overworked with the volume of cases they are forced to handle. If you want a private attorney that insists on taking the time to get to know you and your specific circumstances, call The Law Office of Denis White at (916) 444-3300. We go to court to tell your side of the story without carrying an arm full of other client’s files.

With DUI cases, we can provide you with an experienced and competent defense. This is not a guarantee of a certain result but rather a guarantee of a thorough review of the law as it relates to the specific facts of your case. In some cases it may be necessary to involve investigators and experts. We work with the best.


If you suspect that someone you love has been arrested in Sacramento County you can look them up through the Sacramento County Inmate website. I am happy to discuss ways I might be able to assist your loved one, but am limited by confidentiality as to the amount of information I can provide. The best option is to meet briefly with me and we can decide how best to proceed.


If you think you are going to be arrested or are already charged with a crime, call The Law Office of Denis White at (916) 444-3300.

We are licensed to practice law in California State and Federal Courts. We have represented clients as far south as San Diego and as far north as Susanville but we call Sacramento home.
