nDash Writer Profile for JJ White


A passionate communicator, advocate, and opinion maker with executive-level experience in law, public policy, and government. (Don't let the boyish good looks fool you.)

About Me

With thirteen years as a practicing lawyer, plus eight more as an elected State Legislator, I bring a unique set of skills and experience to the table as a writer and communicator. I began writing for the local newspaper when I was fourteen years old and have never stopped writing.

I am transitioning out of active legal practice and looking to freelance full-time, which will allow me to spend more time with my wife and my two young sons, Atticus and Augustus (also known as Goose).

I can tailor my writing style to pretty much whatever the project requires, but my natural style is conversational with humor sprinkled in to keep the reader entertained. My experience runs the gamut from complex legal pleadings and briefs to policy analysis to compelling editorial content to first person narratives to humor. 

I stick to deadlines and welcome constructive criticism.

One of the most heart-wrenching aspects of sexual abuse cases against children is the fact that the perpetrator is very often somebody in a position of trust with the victim.

When we hear about the Internet of Things (IoT), the focus is primarily centered on consumer-centric products designed to work together within the home. But there is a significant segment of the IoT industry dedicated to improving retail operations for businesses. Given the undeniable struggles and subsequent downsizing of the brick and mortar retail industry, taking an IoT-centric approach could mean the difference between consistent sales and empty big box locations.


Are Bartolotta, PA GOP, Funneling Taxpayer Dollars for Re-Election Bids? Evidence Suggests Yes.

Despite numerous cautionary tales in recent years focusing on the Pennsylvania Legislature, it is almost beyond the pale to imagine an elected official using official taxpayer-funded resources for blatantly political purposes. But a nearly two-month investigation has revealed that email addresses submitted to the official, taxpayer-funded website of state Sen. Camera Bartolotta, who is facing her first re-election bid on Nov. 6 – were used to send fundraising solicitation emails.


Are PA Democratic Legislative Hopefuls Being Forced to Sink or Swim Before Blue Wave Hits?

As the 2018 Election Cycle begins its wind into the homestretch, some Democratic candidates for Pennsylvania State House and Senate will wake up one day in early October to realize those months of planning, personal sacrifice, and hard work will likely not be enough to put their campaigns over the top. Most voters may not understand this, but many campaigns are decided well in advance of Election Day; not by the voters, but by “Stakeholders” who fund most closely-contested political campaigns.


We’re told to avoid talking politics at Thanksgiving. This year, we need to.

One of the cardinal rules for Thanksgiving dinner in recent years is to avoid talking about politics at family gatherings. In fact, the concept of the racist Drunk Uncle is now equally identifiable with Thanksgiving as cranberry sauce, with the common denominator being that nobody wants to put either of them anywhere near their mouth.
