Overview

Paige White’s practice currently focuses on civil rights, police brutality, and wrongful death cases. Paige began her career in public service, working as a public defender at the Neighborhood Defender Services of Harlem in New York City where she handled hundreds of charges from felony narcotics to violent crimes. She later joined the Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia, defending adults and juveniles on serious felony cases including violent sexual assault and homicide. While working for the Public Defender, she successfully argued a series of writs of habeas corpus over the conditions at the D.C. Central Detention Facility, which subsequently lead to a number of individuals being immediately released.

Paige is the current President of the Young Lawyer’s Division of the Bar Association for D.C., and is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, Trial Lawyers for the District of Columbia, and the National Bar Association. She earned her J.D. from the University of Florida’s Frederic C. Levin College of Law, where she was the only woman that year to be included in the UF Trial team’s “Final Four.” During law school, she interned for Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, for whom she created a national campaign to support the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls. Paige holds a Bachelor’s degree from Temple University in political science and sociology with a Spanish minor.

Paige is also honored to serve as Of Counsel to attorney Ben Crump and his law firm Ben Crump Law PLLC.
