This attorney withdrew from my case, weeks after I retained him, without the decency of waiting for me to secure a new attorney. He left me without legal representation at a crucial point in my divorce, citing untimely payments to him and further, his disagreement with my decisions as reasons for his withdrawl. I tried to reach out to him and the principal attorney at the Engel Law Group, only to be chided in an email that these efforts were perceived as circumventing the this lawyer thus, no one at the law firm would return my calls. He also failed to protect me from preventing the same judge (in a recent dependency matter) preside in my divorce, showing his unfamiliarity with the court procedural processes, by failing to file a motion to excuse the judge before he made a ruling in my divorce. I had expected a new judge in divorce, so I could appeal dependency decisions; however this attorney failed to protect my rights, deciding to focus on his payment instead.
A great mediator who knows the law and can negotiate a peaceful solution to anything. He got the other party to stop causing me trouble. I had another lawyer who dropped the ball. Mr. Williams never gave up. He's like the nicest pit bull ever.
My attorney recommended Walt and I retained him on faith of that recommendation alone. Unfortunately, Walt has a paternalistic style in espousing how he surmises one's case should be represented and is hesitant in getting to know a parent and the emotional trauma he or she is experiencing. Walt isn't empathetic to the plight of parents fighting for custody in a dissolution proceeding. He simply failed to connect with me. To give Walt the benefit of the doubt... he has yet to develop a body of experience in this most sensitive of legal fields, however in time I expect that will change. Best of luck Walt!
Walt agreed to take my family law case in the middle of a difficult legal situation and immediately took control in a professional manner. In discussions with the opposing party, and in court, he has a calm demeanor and deep legal knowledge, a combination that instills confidence.
A professional who never gives up to help you! He does all the work himself and knows every detail of the case, His staff members are very responsive as well to connect and update you, He charged almost half of the hourly rate of our last lawyer. In over a year, he has not disappointed us and has continued to get us help and protect us from injustice.
All I can say is that if it wan't for Walt I would never have full custody of my son. He is the best attorney a person can have. Very understanding, knowlegable, clever, and most importanltly he will get what you want. Thanks again for everything you did for my family. Me and my son are the happiest team. Thank Walt
Mr. Williams was refreshing from the start. Very professional, very timely in returning telephone calls and was often times available on his cell phone. Additionally, he was very knowledgeable for someone who was going through the divorce and answered every question presented. Mr. Williams was complete in his presentation to the courts and was respectful when answering numerous questions. I would highly recommend Mr. Williams to anyone seeking a solid, friendly, professional and knowledgeable divorce attorney.
Mr. Williams is friendly but firm in his demeanor and truly dedicated to obtaining a just legal outcome. We discussed my case and all of my legal options up front to come up with a game plan we both agreed upon, then he set to work. He emailed and called me regularly to keep me informed of the status of my case, even if it was to simply tell me he was unable to reach opposing counsel for two days. He was thorough and resourceful about exploring all of the "What Ifs" so neither of us was caught off-guard and our case was solid. While not every case can go your way, mine did, and I am truly grateful to have had Mr. Williams representing me every step of the way. A wonderfully kind human being, tough but not shark-like, and a true advocate for righting wrongs. Thank you! - PSH
