  • Mark Rush Williamson

    Alma is a true professional. She is always prepared for court, knows the law better than most judges, and always puts children ahead of all else, no mater what. She constantly searches for common ground upon which a settlement can be reached, saving her clients thousands in fees and ending expensive, ongoing litigation. I endorse Alma and refer clients to her myself.
