We had a case in which I was fired on trumped up charges. I won the initial case so my ex employer decided to appeal. They had a laundry list of documents and tried to intimidate me. Mr Williams was recommended by another attorney. On initial consultation, Mr Williams told me he didn't take cases he didn't think he could win and would take my case. That was such a relief to be reassured from the beginning that we could win. Mr Williams gathered his information from all parties and decided on his game plan.. Mr. Williams informed us about the proceeding , how it would go and left no stone unturned. Even down to where to sit and what to wear.. It was such relief to have someone as sure and competent as Mr Williams represent me. HE was the difference from being intimidated by an ex employer and a slam dunk in the hearing. I hope I never get fired again, but I will definitely call Mr. Williams first thing if the need arises.
Mr. Williams knows what he us doing, contains a wealth of knowledge, is intimidating in the court room, and comes with an extensive background and tons of experience. He truly cares about his client's case outcome, you must listen to his instruction as he knows best and what he is doing. He is truly dedicated, this is his lifes work. I hope I never have to use him again but am truly happy I did and highly recommend him. Anyone who is willing to listen, do it his way, and dress to impress, go for it! Fantastic lawyer, fantastic person! Thank you!
I cannot imagine having a better experience or outcome than I did with Mr. Williams. Right from the beginning he put me at ease by telling me exactly what I'd need to do in order to win my case. He is courteous and considerate, and I now consider him a friend.
Opposing counsel was befuddled by his knowledge of the law as well as his command of the of the process overall.
Needless to say, I won my appeal.
Attorney Williams is definitely the person you want to represent you in an unemployment claim. He is very knowledgable, experienced, and thorough in his approach. He made every attempt to keep me at ease and grounded during the process. He was always a gentleman and kept me prepared as to what to expect in the proceedings. I would highly recommend Mr. Williams to anyone dealing with unemployment appeals issues!
Hiring Attorney Williams immediately brought me peace of mind. He states his plan; gathers all information then works that plan to the fullest of his capabilities. Like watching a master hone his skills. Assisting him in preparing my case for hearing brought the desired results. I received the full benefit payments. So very thankful for all his months of preparation. I was very proud to have him for my attorney. Always the gentleman, he guides you through each phase of the process with tact and decorum.

If you are in need of assistance securing your unemployment benefits, do not hesitate retaining Attorney Jerome Williams to assist you. Although no attorney can be assured that they will win your case, Attorney Williams will be up front with you and let you know if he thinks you have a fighting chance. I must admit I had a lot of things that were not in my favor and I was very skeptical as to whether I had a chance of winning my case. Within a few weeks, after speaking with Attorney Williams, my skepticism went to optimism. In the end, my case was won. I can't say enough how glad I am that I chose to have Attorney Williams represent me. I can't discuss the facts of my case here, but if Attorney Williams wants to give my number to any potential clients to let you know what I was up against, I would have no problem at all with that.
I enjoyed the way that you handled my case. I was satisfied with the results. More people need to talk with you about this kind of stuff. You are very knowledgeable and kept me well informed about what was going on. Thank you and I know who to call in the future if I need to.
Very knowledgeable with an incredible amount of experience and success.
MR. JEROME WILLIAMS, ATTORNEY IS TOP OF THE LINE! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! HE IS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND VERY KNOWLEGABLE. I WAS FIRED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE FROM A LARGE INTERNATIONAL CORPARATION 18 MONTHS AGO AND MR. WILLIAMS LAID EVERYTHING OUT FOR ME AND WENT IN AND WON THE RULING. HE KEPT ME UP TO DATE THE ENTIRE TIME AND WAS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH- YOU WANT THE BEST -HE IS IT!
After explaining my case to Attorney Williams, he told me very frankly what my chances were. I had a tough case. He then said, "I don't take cases to lose and I will take your case". I was extremely impressed with Attorney Williams' knowledge of employment law and his knowledge of how the system worked. There were multiple delays during my case which was no due to an under-staffed and heavy work load volumn at the Commission. Attoney Williams kept me informed through the delays and, I believe, worked very hard on my behalf to get my hearing scheduled.
Attorney Williams was able to negotiate a settlement with my former employer prior to the hearing. I would recommend Attorney Williams 100%. If you have an employment related issue, you need to call Attorney Williams.
