Speeding Ticket
I received a speeding ticket for going 33 mph over the speed limit AND in a work zone also. They was a very strong possibility that I was going to have my license suspended and have to go to class because of these infractions. Not only was TR was able to negotiate the mph over the speed limit to a manageable number, he also had the work zone infraction removed. I got to keep my license AND did not have to go to class. TR was a godsend. I would recommend him highly.

Very good attorney
TR helped me secure a good outcome in a tricky situation that involved a vehicle issue and communication with a state police trooper. He has excellent experience in previously being a magisterial district judge, as well assistant district attorney and public defender. Very friendly and personable.

Best service!
I contacted TR after a disaster experience with Mooney Law. TR and his staff provided the most courteous, professional, and timely service I've ever experienced. They acted so quickly, having my mother's services completed in one week! I would recommend TR and his staff to anyone and everyone! I'm still in awe...

The best
My lawyer TR was amazing. He always kept in touch and walked me through every step of the way. I looked up on google where to find an attorney and it lead me to him! His assistant was so kind and helpful as well. They have done a terrific job and I couldn’t be happier

HIGHLY recommended!
Attorney Williams defended my son in a case only having hours to get up to speed with his charges. They only met via zoom video on the day of his hearing. The end result was more than I ever imagined; case closed. No probation, no community service. Other than the court fees, no fines etc. He was released the same day. Thank you so much for bringing this to a quick end for us.

Simply the best
I was in a difficult situation. I made a terrible mistake to which other attoneys I consulted with gave me the belief that a state sentence was looming for me. I then went to TR Williams and from the start he was thorough and honest but gave me hope. He tirelessly worked with therapists I was going to for my issues. He gathered much needed information to present a strong case for me. In the end, instead of the state sentence that others were saying was pretty much a guarantee, I received a lesser sentence of house arrest and probation. This guy is truly amazing and has given me a new lease on life. His dedication to me and my family cannot be measured by any dollar figure. He is worth every penny. I would highly recommend Mr. Williams. He's the best.

Highly recommended
When we called the office and said what we needed he jumped right in and helped us with the case. He went above and beyond for our case. Even with little hiccups he never failed us. From finding details every step of the way, to taking all the stress off of us and handling everything. T.R. And his staff were always so pleasant.

Moving violation = 0 points in 1 appearance
Highly recommended: the lawyer got the moving violation resolved in 0 points in 1 appearance. The outcome is very important, however the service that we have received deserves a separate 5 star review. The lawyer and the office kept in contact through the whole process, they were 'holding your hand' all the way till disposition. We have discussed the possible approaches and remedies as outcome may always be different. We have been contacted on every reschedule and minor change in the case and were even reminded couple days before hearing. again, highly recommended.
