Ms. Hobson-Williams helped my elderly father put his estate in order. She helped the family from consultation to recording legal documents. She was always available for questions and advice. I highly recommend Ms. Hobson-Williams for any elder care legal matters.

Professional & Compassionate
Attorney Hobson-Williams was a God send. She came in during a time of chaos and performed greater than we could have imagined with a very sensitive family situation. She was professional and knowledgeable including being sensitive to everyone involved. We were successful in court and appreciated her expertise. I recommend her and will continue to refer new clients to her. Thank you again for your help it will never be forgotten. Kimberley

I did all the work (another one)
Agree totally with other client posting under this title. Ms Hobson-Williams ignored the detailed information I sent; in fact she never seemed to remember that I had even sent her things, although I had direct email acknowledgement from her. When I terminated our agreement and requested a refund, she told me by email she'd send it the next week. A month went by and I didn't hear from her despite several follow-up emails. Finally she replied and claimed I'd never asked, although I had her email from a month before.

Response from Tanya Hobson-Williams March 6, 2023
Our firm strives to respond promptly and provide zealous advocacy. However, emails are not always the best form of communication. Accordingly, a full refund was provided as requested.

I Did All The Work
I thought an attorney worked for their client. I found out otherwise when everything I was seeking to recover was not even bought to the attention of the opposing attorneys, because my attorney Tanya Hobson William was unknowledgable even after several conversations relating to my claim. I sent her evey bill and documentation that I had and yet she failed to put it together even with the amounts highlighted that was outstanding. Some document had to be forwarded a second and thrid time with explaination. When the case was finalized my attorney did get paid for her services, but left me with several unpaid doctors bills which should have been settled during the final agreement. I will never use her services again.
