    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Willmott (Professor Willmott to me, as I started out as his pupil back in law school) is a pleasure to work with. He is also an extremely knowledgeable lawyer and an approachable person, which, as a young attorney, is a fantastic resource to have. He never hesitates to pick up the phone and offer advice or an opinion when needed. He is Board Certified in Family Law and it truly shows. His reputation around town is second to none.
