    James F. Williams is one of the best lawyers on the entire West Coast. He has an amazing ability to connect with jurors especially in complex legal matters. His work often involves "Bet the Company" litigation and if my company faced a legal challenge there is no question James F. Williams would be my lawyer. I endorse this lawyer's work.
