THOMPSON HINE'S TONY WHITE FEATURED IN OHIO'S RISING STARS SUPER LAWYERS 2006
The competitive fire of an Ohio State power forward still sizzles in Tony White, only now it’s displayed in court rather than on the court. “The closest thing to getting elbowed in the nose in the Big Ten is to be a trial lawyer,” says White, partner-in-charge of Thompson Hine’s Columbus office since June 2005. In basketball, “you’re fighting tooth and nail for two hours to win a game. It takes the same kind of preparation and dedication to win a jury trial.”
He relishes the competition, says Chris White, his wife of nearly 11 years. “I’ve never known anyone who plays as hard and works as hard as Tony does. When it’s time to do work, he’s all work. He doesn’t show his dimples
when he’s working.”
White played for the Ohio State University basketball team for four years, serving as captain for the 1988-89 season, his senior year. As a junior, he announced his intention to go to law school. “I was nervously confident I would get in,” he says. “Dick Vitale gave me the nickname ‘The Barrister’ my entire senior year.”
