Erin White is one of the founders of South Sound Law Group, along with her father, William White and her brother, Matthew White. As a family owned and run law firm, South Sound Law Group does things a bit differently, and it shows, as they have a reputation in the community for caring, effective, and lasting advocacy.

Although the main office is located in Tacoma, WA, Erin and the rest of the team at South Sound Law Group regularly handle both criminal and civil matters all over western Washington.

Erin represents Washington residents, as well as visitors, tourists, and military members, on a full range of criminal offenses – DUI, assault, domestic violence, drug possession, theft, and firearm violations. Erin also represents people on a range of serious injury accident suits including but not limited to motor vehicles, busses, commercial vehicles, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrian accidents. She also provides legal services for vacating criminal convictions, restoring firearm rights, protection orders and anti-harassment orders, and wrongful convictions suits. Erin has been named a Rising Start by Super Lawyers multiple years in a row.

Erin’s clients regularly praise her for her skill, knowledge, aggressive advocacy, and compassion for what they are going through. Erin’s education in Psychology and Education and her past work at the Washington State Office of Attorney General and working for a federal judge in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington provides her with a unique skillset she regularly deploys for her clients as both a nurturing emotional rock for her clients, effective advocate, and an impactful trial attorney.

Erin enjoys spending time with her dog, hiking, camping, and enjoying a great local brewery. She is a diehard fan of the Zag’s basketball team as well as the other Seattle teams and is a season ticket holder for the Seattle Kraken games.

Erin loves working alongside her father and brother at South Sound Law Group. She finds being able to build upon the legacy of hard work and compassionate legal advocacy that her father has built for over 40 years is very fulfilling. Whether it’s fighting against a large insurance company or the government, Erin finds that being able to be the advocate for someone and fight for them is incredibly rewarding.
