Jimmy White, Member
After graduating second in his class from Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law in 1999, Jimmy practiced complex civil litigation with a national law firm. He joined Hughes White Colbo & Tervooren, LLC, in 2004 and became a partner two years later. Practicing family law, commercial litigation, professional malpractice and product liability defense, Jimmy has been selected as an Alaska Super Lawyer since 2012, listed in The Best Lawyers in America© in Insurance Law since 2009 and received the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys Top Ten Attorney Award in 2015 and 2016. Jimmy received his Membership Badge in the The 2017 Global Directory of Who’s Who in both Insurance Law and Family Law and was recently recognized by the Global Who’s Who as a Top Lawyer for outstanding contributions and achievements in the field of Law. Jimmy is an attorney because he has a genuine desire to help others. He finds gratification in his ability to make a difference on important issues that impact people’s lives.
“The person sitting across the desk from me needs my help. I can help them like nobody else can,” he says. “If I turn them away or fail to give my very best effort, I’ve let them down and I’ve let myself down.”
When not in the office or in court, Jimmy enjoys virtually any outdoor activity—hiking, biking, snowshoeing, skiing, fishing. He’s also a voracious reader, particularly of American Revolutionary War history, and is staunchly dedicated to his family.
