I had heard him on the radio before and decided to call his office. Okay, the first problem is when you call his office they won't give you any real info, they keep pushing for you to come in for a meeting. This kind of bugged me and I wasn't sure why they wouldn't give any info to me. I found out the reason they don't give you info over the phone is because they want you to come in so that they can push you to sign up as a client with him. I wasn't buying that. He just doesn't seem very genuine and seems to be much more concerned about telling about everything he can do instead of listening. Basically he comes across as a little full of himself. Hey other people may like this type of person but I was really turned off by him.

Mr. Jones has been very helpful with my divorce and custody battle. Any questions I have had during the whole process he has been more than willing to answer and help me understand. He sat down with me in his office and broke down how child support works and made it very simple to understand. As I live in Texas and my divorce was in Memphis he was great about keeping me up to date. There are more times where he would call me and tell me what is going on with my case before I ever called him. Anytime I called and he wasn't available, I would get a return call within 1 business day. I really appreciate all his hard work and would recommend anyone in Memphis to use him as your attorney if you have any legal issue.

I would recommend William Jones and his team to anyone in need of a divorce or bankruptcy. I personally hired his firm for both, and even though it was the most difficult situation I had ever experienced, I always had the comfort of knowing Mr. Jones was in my corner. Mr. Jones is a very intelligent attorney, who was always willing to listen and made my life his own. He took personal interest in my case. He got to know me, who I was, and what I needed more than wanted. I have heard of stories where some attorneys limit the knowledge of their clients to name and case number, and they are shuffled through like cattle, just a hash-mark on the board. That is not the case with Mr. Jones or his team. Mr. Jones always looks at the big picture and the cost/benefit of the situation and solutions. One thing I liked about Mr. Jones is that he never did anything I didn't want to do, or without my permission. He understood that I knew the opposition better than anyone, and he always asked what steps I wanted to take next, and what the reaction would be. At times he would hold me back because he knew emotions were running high and it was effecting my ability to make a smart, long-term decision. With his patience and knowledge, I feel he knew what I needed before I did, and that is greatly appreciated. If any have visited his website, you can see that he is one for technology, which gives him a defined edge in the arena of practicing law. His documentation and execution skills are superb. Now not to say there weren't negative issues, there were, but they are not worth mentioning because Mr. Jones always stepped up to the plate and took ownership, and if there was a wrong, he made it right.

I heard of Mr. Jones on 98.1 radio station. On the program, he will make referrals to other attorneys if the subject matter is not in his area of practice. He will tell the callers to call for referrals. My husband is interested in speaking with an attorney in another area of practice, so I called his office today. After speaking with his receptionist for a few moments she put me on hold. I expected her to just give me the name of an attorney, but instead she said I was going to be transferred to an attorney. What a surprise when Lawyer Bill answered the phone. He took the time to listen and ask questions. He then not only gave me two names, but also gave me advice to pass along to my husband. To me, if he took this much time to listen and advise then this man must be wonderful as a hired attorney. Truly, this man is in the business of helping people and not in it for the money. For him to take the time to speak with me says volumes about his character. I would recommend him highly.

Mr Jones is a very knowledgeable attorney. Each time that I have consulted him for advice I feel like I did not go wrong. I was referred to him by the Hyatt Legal Plan and have since referred some friends and family members. I will not hestitate to call upon Mr. Jones or anyone in his office ever. He will always be my first choice for assistance.

I just went through a very difficult divorce and Mr. Jones fought for me and to help secure my children's future. In a very difficult time It made it so much easier to know I had an attorney who genuinely cared. He even gives out his personal cell phone number so he can be reached at any time. This was very helpful because sometimes I had problems or questions outside of normal office hours. If you are going through a divorce and you want an attorney to fight for you and your children he is the one.

Bill helped me out with some issues concerning some rental property. He had a lease written up for me to use that has been extremely helpful in dealing with tenants and issues at the home. He was very reasonably priced and met with me after my work day, which, on top of the good rate, kept me from losing more money.
Bill also assisted me on some closing paperwork on a home I bought. Again, the rate was great and dealing with his office was very easy.
After these two great experiences, I decided to use Bill to help me set up an LLC, which was a very easy process thanks to his very helpful team. I recommend hi mto everyone I know.

I found Bill Jones to be difficult to reach, his office was chaotic, and he did not seem to know how to handle simple cases. Bill seemed more impressed with his radio show than with presenting a solid case for me.

I hired Mr. Jones to represent me in a dispute involving my ex-wife, wherein charges of civil and criminal contempt were filed against me, and also to attempt to modify an existing consent order.
Mr. Jones was helpful to me from the very beginning, and immediately made me feel more at ease with an assurance that the charges filed against me were baseless. I consider him to be very knowledgeable and he possesses good communication skills. In the end, the charges against me were dismissed; unfortunately the petition to modify an existing consent order was not granted, not due in any part to a lack of effort on the part of Mr. Jones.

I had a small matter I needed resolved traffic ticket-wise for my daughter (who lives out of Tennessee).
I made a phone call to Bill's office, received a friendly ear to my story/situation and instructions on what to get the office so they could take care of the matter.
I provided all the information requested and the next thing I know - the matter was resolved.
And to top it all off, received a personal note from Bill after "bragging" about him on the radio. TOP NOTCH guy in my book - and not a bad lawyer either.

I was shocked to see that his promise of meeting with each client was more than a marketing angle. He sat down with us for an hour at our first meeting and his staff was just as helpful. We went to court one time, he handled everything else and saved our home! It is nice to know someone does what they say they will do. That's rare and rarer for an attorney.

Bill was very reasonably priced. He did a great job with several family matters and gave us a good understanding of the legal process. We feel comfortable that our family legal matters are safe and secure. He was very good with our children and helped them understand a complicated visitation arraingement.
