About Us

White Harris practices exclusively in the area of labor and employment law, representing management. The firm counsels businesses on how to comply with local, state, and federal employment laws and represents them in court, before government agencies, and in alternative forums such as arbitration and mediation. With a range of experience, including nationally recognized law practices and government, our attorneys utilize creative solutions to reduce our clients’ legal exposure, manage their risk, and advocate aggressively on their behalf.

What makes us different is that, unlike many other firms, employment law is all we do. Our singular focus on this one area is important for many reasons. First, it allows us to stay on the cutting edge of legal developments in the field. Second, it promotes efficiency in providing legal services, which ultimately results in significant cost savings to our clients. And third, it means that we are constantly developing and honing our skills as labor and employment attorneys, which gives our clients a competitive advantage over those represented by departments of larger firms or by small firm generalists who only occasionally practice in this field.
