Small town feel with big results
Barbara Williams and her associates were friendly and knowledgeable throughout the almost 2 year process following my son's auto accident. We always felt like we were important and we received a settlement that we were happy with. Highly recommend.

Consumate Professional
I came to Ms. Williams following a motorcycle accident in 2015, and an insurance dispute arose. From the moment that I initially met with Ms. Williams and her associate, Mr. Ford, I was struck by their commitment to honesty, their professionalism, and their warmth. They were careful to explain carefully those things which I did not immediately understand, and were excellent at keeping in touch with me, my doctors, and other resources to ensure that there was transparency from the beginning to the end of the process. Backed by an amazing team of professionals on their staff, I hope that I'll not have to call on their firm again, but have no doubt whatsoever that I would refer to them freely and without reservation.

Personal Injury
I hired Ms Williams to handle my personal injury claim after I was in a car accident that resulted in physical injury, missing work, doctor bills and total loss of my vehicle. Ms Williams and Ms Steele were speedy, efficient, kept in touch with me every step of the way. They settled my claim quickly, I was able to pay my bills, replace my car and I was reimbursed for all the work income I lost. I didn't have to worry about a thing and most importantly, it was a blessing to just leave the details and negotiating to the professionals! I highly recommend Williams Ford!

Personable and Professional
I hired Barbara William's after I was involved in a automobile accident. Right from the beginning she gave me practical advice that helped me throughout my case. Being involved in a lawsuit is very emotional and Barbara was always there to answer any questions I had as well as listen when I was furious with my situation and then in tears over what had happened to me. I always received pertinent information in a timely manner and if for some reason I didn't respond, Wendy, her legal assistant always followed up with me to make sure I had gotten the information. I also always felt confident that Barbara was well versed in the law through education and previous experience. I knew I was in good hands. I hope to never personally need an attorney again, but I would use Barbara William's again and highly recommend her.

Goes the Distance. Great Firm.
"I found that when I was faced with the aftermath of a serious car accident, it paid to have a legal firm who has the knowledge and experience to go the distance for you. Barbara and Cory are a great legal team with formidable expertise handling cases like mine that involve accident injury. The whole team at WiilamsFord handled my case with great care and compassion. Through every step in the process, they checked to see how I was recovering, kept me informed of the case progress, and let me know if any action was required on my part. You can trust this firm to dutifully navigate through nuances of detailed data, (like medical records), to understand and fully build your case. I have always found that dealing with the insurance industry can be confusing and difficult, but Barbara and Cory know the terrain and helped navigate me through it all. The settlement that was reached was greater than I anticipated. I wholeheartedly recommended this firm."

EXTRAORDINARY Attorney Who Settled My Car Crash Case
Barbara Williams and her Team at Williams Ford handled my car accident case with the most acute attention to details, compassion, and legal strategies that other lawyers that I interviewed to handle my case never even thought to pursue. Barbara's depth of knowledge in personal injury law is unmatched in the profession. The insurance agency offered a settlement that was unacceptable to me, so I hired Barbara to obtain a fair settlement for me and she delivered. I HIGHLY recommend you hire Barbara Williams to handle your personal injury case so you can focus on your physical and emotional healing and leave all the stressful and confusing legal issues to Barbara and her trusted Team!!!

Top tier attorney delivers top tier results with personal touch
I have worked with Barbara for several years and have been not only impressed with the superb nature of her practice, and exceptional results she obtains for her clients, but also how deeply she cares about each of them. Barbara takes measures, often overlooked by her peers, to ensure that her clients net as much of the settlement proceeds as possible.

Wonderful attorney
If you have been injured in an accident, I strongly recommend seeking the help of Barbara S. Williams and her team. For us, they took over the numerous stresses of dealing with insurance companies, which can be exhausting and confusing. I'm so thankful I found Barbara and placed the stresses that followed the car accident in her caring and knowledgable hands while focusing on the health of my son and myself.
