"First off, let me say that I am a REAL PERSON. I work in law enforcement thanks in large part to Mr. Landon White. I had been hired, when two and a half months into my employment with an agency, a charge was discovered on my background information that I had unintentionally omitted. It left me unemployed and wondering if I would ever have the chance to be in law enforcement again. I did a search for attorneys in the triangle area because my hearing on whether or not I would be given State Certification was in Raleigh. I sent out several inquiries to different attorneys, three to be exact, and Mr. White was one of them. I did my search on a Sunday. It was only an hour after I had posted my information to Mr. White's online site that he called me to discuss my case. Mr. White was down to earth, tried to ease my stress, and was willing to take his time, on a Sunday, to listen to my story. Mr. White was easy to contact, always available, kept me informed of information he may have needed from me, etc. The key with Mr. White was his down to earth style and his eagerness to help me win my case. Over the course of three and a half months, Mr. White put together information supporting why I unintentionally failed to put a charge from 1995 on my background information. The day of my hearing was a very emotional day for me. In short, the hearing commission is similar to a jury, where the commission hears the information, asks questions during the review and then makes a decision. Mr. White handled my hearing just like it was a court proceeding. Mr. White pointed out the things I've done to get to the point where I was, noting there was nothing intentional about leaving the charge off, just a simple omission. Mr. White, handled the proceeding with the utmost professionalism by bringing together my character witnesses, putting in place reasons for the omission, and showing why I wanted to be in law enforcement. I was so emotional when I went in front of the commission I could not talk. Mr. White quickly came to my defense and spoke for me. As a result, I am employed in the field of law enforcement and very grateful for Mr. White's effort and his down to earth style. Mr. White is, in large part, the reason why I wear a badge today. I am confident Mr. White can help you too." Professional License Hearing: Criminal Justice Education & Training Standards Commission.
