“In a nutshell, over the course of 38 years as an attorney myself, and former International Legal Counsel for a Fortune 25 company with responsibility for managing many law firms over the years, Lexie White is among the very best – if not the best – I have worked with, anywhere.… This journey of bitterly fought litigation included 2 trips to the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, and one to the Supreme Court (cert denied)…. I don’t hesitate to recommend Lexie and her colleagues at Susman Godfrey. There are none better.” Read more here.

“By far the best lawyer we worked with, Lexie amazed us with her streamlined and efficient case management, saving us huge amounts of time and money as we ramped up toward trial…. Lexie’s diligence and talent won us a huge victory at trial…. I sincerely hope our business will never be such in a lawsuit again. But if we ever are, there is nobody I would ever trust it with but Lexie White and her team at Susman Godfrey.” Read full letter here.

“I’ve been practicing law for over 50 years. Lexie White recently handled a case for me . . . . She had a short period of time to amass many facts, put them into a set of answering papers, and, finally, to win our case at a hearing, strictly on cross examination. She did a superb job, and I unhesitatingly recommend her legal services in any matter you may have. She is easily on a par with the best lawyers I have ever dealt with.”
— Paul R. Waldman, General Counsel, United States Prof. Tennis Association
