Jami White, a personal injury attorney at Cruz & Associates, has dedicated her legal career to advocating for people seriously injured in accidents, dog bites, and slips and falls.

As a child, Jami’s father sustained a catastrophic work injury, leaving the family to grapple with the complexities of the medical and legal systems. It was the support of a caring and experienced personal injury attorney who helped her family navigate through this life-altering event. This transformative inspired her to pursue her law degree to help others facing similar challenges.

Her legal journey commenced at the Arizona Attorney General’s office, where Jami served as a paralegal for more than fifteen years, contributing her skills to various state departments. She earned her Juris Doctor from Arizona Summit Law School while working simultaneously as a paralegal at a formidable insurance defense firm in Arizona and transitioning into the role of an attorney tasked with defending high-value cases. This valuable experience uniquely positioned her for her current role as a plaintiff’s attorney, where she champions the rights of the injured.

In her spare time, Jami finds fulfillment in giving back to her community. She volunteers her time and expertise at St. Mary’s Food Bank, writes biographies for children seeking adoption through the Children’s Heart Organization, and provides invaluable assistance by drafting last wills and testaments for first responders as part of the Wills for Heroes initiative.
