Keith White was born and raised in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, New York. As a member of an under-served and incredibly under-privileged community, Keith is committed to the universal struggle for human equality. This commitment does not just exist in the courtroom but extends to many of his charitable and civic engagements. While a trial attorney at heart, Keith has worked in various fields of discipline.
Keith White began his career as an educator at Boys & Girls HS (while attending Law School) and then as a Prosecutor in The Kings County District Attorney’s Office. Since leaving the DA’s Office, Keith started his private practice, worked as Independent Counsel for Brooklyn Pastor and city leader A.R. Bernard and has worked with NYCHA, HPD, and HUD to develop and build affordable housing for thousands of disadvantaged members of the Brooklyn and New York City community. While previously serving as a 3 year term as co-Chair of the Board of Girls Education Mentoring Services (GEMS), Keith has remained on the Board of this powerful organization that provides continuous and comprehensive services to address the needs of commercially and sexually exploited girls and young women in Brooklyn and throughout the United States. In addition to GEMS, Keith has joined the Board of KAVI (Kings Against Violence Initiative), a non-profit organization founded by Dr. Rob Gore that has become critically acclaimed for violence reduction and providing services to under-served communities in New York. While proud to serve these organizations, Keith is also a founding Board Member of The BKLYN COMBINE, a grassroots non-profit organization that partners with schools in underserved communities throughout the world to provide coding, life skills, mentoring and restorative justice programming.
And recently, Keith has embarked on a journey to strengthen his skills, deepen his knowledge and expand his ability to help others.
As a candidate for a Doctorate in Organizational Change and Leadership at the University of Southern California, Keith is researching, studying and exploring ways to improve the lives of the most underserved communities in the world. Poverty does not have to exist, drug addiction should not be a crime, mental health challenges should not be punished and greed should not be rewarded.
With unrelenting ideals, hope and hardwork, Keith believes that "we can achieve fairness, equity, sustainability and love in our society."
While working on some of the city's most high profile cases, Keith has never lost focus on his commitment to a client-centered approach. Whether he's forming a business, negotiating a contract, or litigating a criminal or civil matter, Keith is committed to delivering professional service and client satisfaction.
