    Ronnie White Jr. obtained his Bachelor of Arts degrees in History and Political Science from Georgia State University in 2010. He then relocated to Syracuse to attend law school at Syracuse University, graduating in 2013 with a Juris Doctorate and a certificate in Technology Commercialization.

    Upon graduating from law school, Ronnie joined the Onondaga County Department of Law, where he was responsible for representing municipal agencies in state, federal, local and family courts. He then joined one of Central New York's preeminent private law firms before deciding on gaining enough experience to start his own firm. He currently operates his own small law firm in downtown Syracuse.

    Ronnie is a founding member of the William Herbert Johnson Bar Association of Central New York, Central New York's only African American Bar Association; a member of the Onondaga County Bar Association; and a member of the New York State and American Bar Associations. 

    He is President of the Board of Directors of The Learning Place, Inc. (f/k/a Newland Center for Adult Learning and Literacy), and a member of the Central New York Political Leadership Institute's Advisory Board, the area's only non-partisan campaign training program.

    In his spare time, Ronnie enjoys writing music, attending concerts and sporting events, and enjoying the arts.
