White & Allen, P.A. is a full service law firm located in Eastern North Carolina. The firm has offices in Greenville, Kinston, Morehead City, New Bern and Snow Hill. The firm employs 23 attorneys and more than 40 paralegals and other support staff.
These are attorneys and staff members who clients would want to have as neighbors and friends. But, just as important, these are attorneys a client wants alongside when starting a business, when planning an estate, when responding to an injury, when selling or buying property, or at any other time that a client needs someone to rely on and trust.
The firm's predecessors first began their legal practice in Eastern North Carolina in 1927. The existing law firm began in 1970 with a merger of two smaller firms whose senior partners were Thomas J. White, Jr. and William A. Allen, Jr. Since then, the firm has grown to become one of the largest law firms in Eastern North Carolina.
White & Allen’s scope of practice covers both criminal and civil law including bankruptcy, civil litigation, criminal matters, condemnation and imminent domain, health care law, corporations, domestic and family law, elder law and special needs (disability) trusts, estate planning and administration, partnerships, personal injury, real estate, taxation, and traffic matters, among others. The law firm has three attorneys with a Master of Laws degree in taxation and five attorneys who are board certified by the North Carolina State Bar as specialists in their respective practice areas.
At White & Allen, not only are we dedicated to delivering top-notch legal services, we also keep a close eye on costs. Using technology to add speed and efficiency, we can minimize overhead and pass the savings on to clients. We also maintain a cost-conscious fee structure through the use of paralegals under attorney supervision whenever possible.
We take great pride in having been leaders in public service for many years. From serving in the N.C. General Assembly to membership on the Kinston School Board; from being chairman of the State Arts Commission to participation in the local Chamber of Commerce, the firm serves its communities. Service is at the root of all that we do.
Many of our client relationships have lasted for generations. We have assisted clients through difficult times and helped them avoid the future’s pitfalls. We have been with our clients as they have grown with opportunities and built their own sound futures.
These are relationships forged from shared beliefs, built on solid trust and nurtured by genuine care. That is the White & Allen way of doing things.
