John K. White, Jr. Recognized by Best Lawyers®

I am pleased to report that I was recognized by Best Lawyers® in the 2024 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in the Real Estate Law category. Although the selection is based upon peer review, I hesitated to publish any announcement of the recognition. After all, we now have 14 local attorneys who have also been recognized by Best Lawyers® in Real Estate Law, many of whom I have the pleasure of working with on a regular basis.

I decided to make this announcement because it gives me an opportunity to recognize and thank the many people who have helped and supported me in my practice over the years. I am very grateful to Steven Barnwell, who helped me transition from a NY “big law” litigation attorney into a real estate practitioner. I learned a lot from Steve about title searching and doing real estate closings–and some of my current clients came from referrals from Steve back when I started my practice in Asheville 10 years ago. I’m also so grateful to Cynthia Alleman, who rented me my first office on Church St. and gave me so much advice about running a law office.

Like most of you, I could not have grown my practice–or get through more than a day professionally–without the great support and hard work provided by my paralegals, past and present. We are a team. And we are grateful that Aaron Kohatsu joined us last year as an associate attorney.

Finally, I want to thank all of the excellent members of the local real estate bar who I get to work with and learn from every day. We have so many great minds and so much collective experience among us that I really believe we make each other better lawyers.

It is an honor to practice with the members of the Buncombe County Bar. Thank you all!
