HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED OR NEED OTHER LEGAL ASSISTANCE? CALL TODAY; WILLEY LAW OFFICES WANTS TO HELP!

I am the newest addition to Willey Law Offices, joining the firm after graduating from Roger Williams University, School of Law (located in Bristol, Rhode Island) in 2012. I went back to law school after having a prior career as a professional glassblower and glassblowing equipment manufacturer, as well as a glassblowing instructor on a number of levels.

 

Having resided in Brooklyn, N.Y. for a number of years, where I worked at UrbanGlass, my wife and I moved to New Orleans, LA to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. After Hurricane Katrina uprooted us from our new life in New Orleans, LA (moving there two and a half months prior to Katrina's destructive effect on the city), we then began the long journey of pursuing new careers; I then decided on a career in legal advocacy.

 

I am licensed to practice law in Maine, Massachusetts and the United States Virgin Islands, as well as in the U.S. District Court, for the District of Maine and the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals. I am also an accredited Veteran’s Advocate/Attorney. I focus my practice in all areas of litigation, as well as share in my father’s passion for zealous advocacy of our firm's clients.

In my spare time I enjoy gardening, CrossFit, and spending time with my wife and children, enjoying activities such as hiking, biking, swimming and travelling abroad. I have a deep interest in learning about and visiting new places and cultures. I have lived in Cairo, Egypt as well as Cortona, Italy. I have also spent time travelling throughout Europe, Central America, South East Asia as well as Eastern Europe. I firmly believe that having a sensitivity and understanding of other people's ways of life has allowed me to become a better person and a better attorney and has aided in my ability to fully and zealously represent my clients.

Great Lawyer
Ezra is a very knowledgeable and trustworthy lawyer. I believe that he does everything in his power to help his clients and keep them informed of everything that he wants to accomplish in the case that he is working on for his clients. I was very impressed with him and would gladly recommend him to anyone that is in need of any type of legal advice.

Best Family and Criminal Defense Attorney!
Ezra is the most helpful and professional family lawyer around! He goes above and beyond what any other attorney is willing to do and succeeds! He helped me obtain 50/50 primary residential custody! Long story short, roughly 5 years ago I had mistakenly signed my rights away from my child while I was at work one day...I honestly thought my life was over until I met Ezra... I decided to let my first attorney go after meeting him. He was more expensive and 3 hours away from me but his heart was in it for the kids and that's all I could ask for! Plus he was also willing to travel 3 hours for my case! He was willing to coach me through difficult times and scenarios as well! If you want an lawyer whose heart is in it for the kids sake then you need to look no further and hire this attorney! His staff was also extremely helpful and wonderful to deal with! Money isn't everything and I feel I'll never fully be able to repay him for what he did for me and my family! I'm very thankful for this man!

Best Attorney in Maine
Ezra Willey has been my son's attorney for many years. Ezra has been a strong an unwavering advocate of my son and his fight with severe mental illness. Ezra's professionalism, keen intelligence and insight regarding the interaction of people with brain disorders and the legal system saved my son's life. Without Ezra I fear my son would have been lost in the legal system and incarcerated without the treatment he needed and because of Ezra, is now getting. Ezra is a gifted, caring and thoughtful attorney.

Willey Law
Ezra and his father Laurence has represented my family in a child custody suit. We were very pleased with representation and the results of the first case. Ezra continues to represent my son. His advise and guidance has been extremely helpful.

Ezra will fight for your case. There is no one better to represent you!
I had four other lawyers office recommend Ezra as one of the best at dealing with difficult cases! They said he will fight for your case and man did he. My case was nearing its end when he jumped in and he turned it all back in my favor somehow. No other lawyer wanted to take that on but he did. He saw the injustice and cared about my daughter and I. We were people with feelings not just a paycheck. Together with his tream he made us feel so supported and calmed my nerves. He was just brilliant during the trial, super focused and organized. His plan on how to approach it all was well thought out. He navigated the other lawyer with ease. He is amazing at what he does. Everyone I talked to seemed to know who he was and said how amazing a lawyer he was. I would recommend him to anyone. He is the best out there!!

Forever Grateful Will D and Anna D
Although Ezra dropped as a client due my lack of transparency and being forthright with details that would negatively impacted my case and jeopardized a favorable outcome for my daughter and I and perhaps jeopardize his personal integrity. He educated me to as how the system works. And how to fully disclose any future plans and present situations no matter how small they may seem to your attorney to determine what is the best course of action. He even referred me to another attorney. I did as he advised and I stopped having my daughter and I from spending the night away from my primary residence at my girlfriends house and registered my daughter in the proper school district where I reside. I took his advice he gave me and I was able to apply to my new attorney client relationship and I have reached a divorce settlement judgment with my wife which allowed me to protect my daughter from mental, emotional and physical abuse and do what is best for the well being of my daughter without being taken a step back financially to be able to care for my daughter. I now have Sole Parental Rights and Responsibilities of my daughter and a divorce settlement being finalized that works to my daughters best interest. Ezra was firm and professional even when he dispatched me as a client and his team were professionals who made this difficult time so much more manageable and easier on my mental and emotional health. I can't say enough about them. I would recommend him to anyone who want a competent, ethical attorney who will give you it to you straight while being kind and professional. Thank you Ezra for all your hard work and again my sincerest apologies for forcing your hand to dispatch my case.

True Integrity
Life can oftentimes present daunting circumstances when people need guidance and support. Mr. Willey was there for me when I needed someone with integrity to navigate an overwhelming legal issue. He was thorough and provided the assistance which resulted in a successful outcome.

A True Advocate
Within minutes of sitting and talking with Ezra, it was obvious we weren’t meeting with an attorney who was just looking for a paycheck. We were instantly comfortable with him and could talk about anything. He listened, and more importantly, he genuinely wanted to help us. He assisted in navigating us through a very intimidating and rather scary process and made every effort to explain every step. He got to know our situation and he fought for us. He was a true advocate for our family. We got the best possible outcome in our case and we would never had gotten there without him. We truly appreciate all he did for us and highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney.

Attorney Ezra Willey and his staff are very professional and helpful. Durring my long and complicated court case Attorney Willey went to great lengths for my case to be heard. He truly went above and beyond. He explained every step and what to expect before hand. He is very honest and compassionate about what he does. I am grateful to have him on my side and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a great attorney!

Educated, compassionate, energetic
I can not say enough about Ezra! He is one of the best lawyers I have ever met. If you want to win a case he is who you want to hire. He will fight and do all he can do. I hired him and when things seemed grim we came out on top and won 2 cases back to back. Big deal! He is a fireball in court! He knows his stuff and is very educated! Not only I. Civil, but all aspects of the law! Something he said to me when I first walked threw the doors of Willey law was that I would be treated like family and I have been. I dont think I would ever hire another lawyer ever! It will always be Willey law that I chose to have my back. They exceeded my expectations.. no one wants to go to court, but if you do they are who you want on your side!

Tenacious litigation at its finest
Attorney Willey was just who we needed to meet the needs of our complex and heart wrenching case. From the minute he took over our file, he tirelessly advocated for us. He never backed down from all our opposing sides. He was always there, a phone call or an email away, we never felt alone. Attorney Willey went above and beyond to professionally campaign for our family and our rights.
