Attorney Profile

Tess White exclusively represents people injured in accidents in Indianapolis and across the State of Indiana.   She focuses her practice on motor vehicle crashes, wrongful death, premises liability slip-and-fall accidents, and  car accidents involving motorists that are uninsured or underinsured.  As a former insurance company lawyer, Tess saw how the insurance companies attempted to blame the victim and get out of paying what they owe.  Now, Tess uses her knowledge of the insurance industry to help the injured get fair compensation for their injuries and get their medical bills paid without damaging their credit. Tess understands that it can be a frustrating, slow and a seemingly unfair process.  Tess allows her client’s to focus on recovering from their injuries while she works to get the case resolved. 

Tess, a widow herself, understands what it is like to lose a loved one.  At the age of 43 Tess’s husband passed away after a long illness.  Tess uses that experience to compassionately and vigorously advocate for victims of wrongful death.  Tess, in addition to being a mother, enjoys horseback riding, yoga, bicycling and cooking.  Tess is the Founder and President of The Living It Foundation, a non-profit organization that offers financial support to  families lviing with  terminal illness.  Tess is an active sustaining  member  of  the Indiana Trial Lawyers Association and a member of the American Association for Justice.  Tess is proud to have been named as an Indiana  Super Lawyer by  Super Lawyers magazine since 2014. 

Personal injury victims often face monumental challenges such as loss of income, medical bills, rehabilitation and even living with a permanent disability. Ms. White shows compassion to her clients and uses her skills to help her clients, regardless of whether they are just beginning their case or are seeking to find new legal representation in the middle of the litigation process, find solutions that work for their situation.
