I recommend Dynah Duncan-White. When my wife came to me and said she wanted a Divorce, I knew a lawyer would be called, "Dee", she goes by. The first time I meet her I knew she had my back; she is trustworthy, honest, and straight to the point. She always said "one day at a time". I've heard other attorneys are just looking out for themselves. Not her. I recommended her to friends at work, and now they are being counseled by Dee. Thank you Dee! It means a lot. I couldn't have done it without you. Thanks again.Sep 29, 2015
When I had the privilege to be represented by Dynah, I had requested a court appointed attorney on the spot and she just happened to be there. After one look at my file, i could tell that Dynah had "been around" so to speak. She knew instantly what she was dealing with, but in reality what she was dealing with was two felonies and whatever misdemeanors that were thrown at me (my guess was so that the felonies stuck out to the judge, and ultimately would stick onto my record). Needless to say, I have a rap sheet like a table cloth full of almost consistent misdemeanors snowballed throughout my entire 20's. In and out of county jail, and the longest time I've ever served was roughly 5 months in the county jail. I was sentenced to a year on a high misdemeanor, and ended up serving the rest of my time on a tether. So at this point in my life i know what jail is all about, and deathly afraid to go back not to mention prison. I was facing up to five years in prison for just one of the felonies that I had committed. So that one felony plus another and some misdemeanors, added up im facing a total of mabe 8 years in prison. I then knew I needed to make some serious changes and Dynah wasn't afraid to make that loud and clear. After a month of making some drastic decisions, and focusing on picking my own self up by the boot straps. I took Dynahs advice and started to work on myself, instead of worrying myself to death. Attended meetings, working with mental health counselors, psychiatrists, and doctors. Meanwhile behind the curtains, Dynah requested medical records ect. She was constantly going out of her way to work every angle in my case. I was able to have a couple sit down visits with Dynah discussing the seriousness of my case. Although I had committed several crimes (that truthfully, I'm surprised didn't make the evening news), Dynah had my best interest at heart 110%. She also wanted to make sure that i was well aware of the wrongs Ive done, and the possible repercussions that I was facing. When all was said and done, Dynah bonded my case over to Frank Murphy where she convinced the judge that there was hope left for me after all, even for a repeat offender like myself... So I did end up taking a plea bargain. Not only were a couple of the charges dropped/dropped down, but i wasn't forced to serve any jail/prison time. I was put on probation with the exception that i remained working with mental health services. Now that i broke down my story, to give you an example of why i would give Dynah a 10-10. Between her experience in taking divorce/custody cases, as well as being such a good criminal lawyer, i would recommend Dynah to anyone for virtually any case. I personally know that she is a person who takes her job very seriously and is very smart/witty, so there's no getting over on Dynah in a courtroom. The fact that she knows so much about law, and isn't afraid to answer your texts etc. Dynah worked with me (off the record) and really made you feel like you had Peyton Manning on your team, and Floyd Mayweather in your corner. I've paid lawyers in the past up to $3,000 to take a simple marijuana case, still didnt get any charges dropped and ended up serving a max sentence of 93 days in jail for a misdemeanor (roach in my ashtray)... (not proud to say) but out of all of the lawyers ive ever had (which is roughly about 15-20) I could tell that Dynah is about her business... So if your remotely unsure about a case from custody, divorce to criminal defense, Dynah-Duncan White is hands down one of the best lawyers in downriver, not to mention more affordable (it isn't hard to see that now a days, those are the most important traits). Dynah is definitely a 'peoples' lawyer. In my opinion, those are the best kind. I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. Once again, thank you so much Dynah, and God bless you.Sep 29, 2015
Dynah was an amazing attorney during my horrific divorce. She was understanding, caring, and sensitive to the situation. She always made me feel like her number one priority even though I know she had multiple clients. She helped me get what I deserved out of my divorce and for that I’ll be forever thankful. She will be my “go to” attorney for any legal situations and forever my friend. Thank you Dynah!Jan 17, 2018Verified
I had a very involved divorce case that ended up going to trial. Ms. Duncan-White did an excellent job of winning at trial and getting me a very nice settlement. She is hardworking, compassionate and tough. If I need legal help in the future I will definitely hire her again.Aug 14, 2017Verified
