Law Office of John K. White, Jr. PLLC Moving to 932 Hendersonville Rd., Suite 103

John White is moving his office from 2000 Hendersonville Rd., to 932 Hendersonville Rd., Suite 103, Asheville NC 28803.  The move should be complete and the office open at the new location on August 31, 2020.  This new office location is in the Forest Center, near the intersection of Seminole St. and Hendersonville Rd. next door to the former Biltmore Baptist Church building (now a part of Mission Health).

The mailing address for the Law Office of John K. White, Jr. PLLC remains P.O. Box 1283, Arden, NC 28704.

John would like to express his profound gratitude for all the assistance, advice, and encouragement he received from attorney Stephen Barnwell.  Six years ago, Steve renovated the lower level of his office building at 2000 Hendersonville Rd. to accommodate the Law Office of John K. White, Jr. PLLC and graciously allowed John to use the available signage on Hendersonville Rd.  John, Susan and Kayla will miss being downstairs from their friends and colleagues at Barnwell & Long PLLC.
