About Us

White & Associates is an American law firm founded in 1993 by Kenneth White, an honors graduate of the George Washington University National Law Center in Washington, D.C. Mr. White, who has worked in all three branches of the U.S. government, including the State and Commerce Departments, U.S. Congress, and District of Columbia Superior Court, is licensed by the State of Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia and is a member of the D.C. and 9th Circuit Courts of Appeals and D.C. District Court bars.

Mr. White is fluent in the Russian language; has conducted several seminars on immigration and business topics; and is the author of the books U.S. Nonimmigrant Visas (available on Amazon.com) and U.S. Immigration and Citizenship. He also has written numerous EB-5 related articles, starting in 1996. He has been the go-to person for the American International Lawyers Association on the topic of EB-5 investors from Russia, publishing articles in AILA’s guide on Immigration Options for Investors and Entrepreneurs. He has been invited to speak at EB-5 conferences and has been recognized by Who’s Who Legal: Corporate Immigration for the years 2014–2020. Mr. White has been interviewed by the BBC, the Wall Street Journal, and the Moscow Times.

Mr. White has been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association since 1994 and was a long-time member of Invest in the USA. One distinctive area of Mr. White’s practice has been consular processing, which has become more critical as consular officers are becoming more aggressive in challenging already-approved EB-5 petitions. Mr. White initially acquired his consular expertise as a long-time resident of Moscow, Russia, where he had a successful US consular practice, resolving complicated visa issues, overcoming prior visa rejections and ineligibilities, as well as securing waivers on behalf of clients. He has sued the US Embassy in Moscow, ensuring changes in its processing of DV Lottery applications after the Lotterygate scandal, and securing a court order directing it to make a visa decision expeditiously on an application pending for more than three years. He has filed a Discrimination Complaint against the US Embassy in Tashkent with the Office of Inspector General at the Department of State, prompting changes in practices and personnel at the embassy. Mr. White has traveled to thirty-five countries and represented clients at more than forty embassies and consulates around the world.
