Divorce Settlement
Attorney Williams and her team did an amazing job settling my case. They were professional, courteous, and knowledgeable in the areas of their profession. They were very responsive to my emails and inquiries. Do not underestimate the power of Attorney Williams. She leaves no stone unturned!

The Attorney You Need
Words can not express how grateful I am for the legal services Attorney Williams provided during my divorce and custody case. I decided to retain counsel right before my first hearing and she and her staff were amazing right from the start. Her associate attorney did an outstanding job when Ms. Williams had a scheduling conflict. After that Ms. Williams always gave me sound, unbiased information and was direct in how we would proceed but supportive of my decisions. And her support staff (Chania) were always responsive and communicative. If there is ever an issue regarding my case again, I WILL NOT HESITATE TO CALL MS. WILLIAMS FOR REPRESENTATION. Thank you to Ms. Williams and your staff for your professionalism and your support. You made a very emotional and difficult situation so much easier to manage with your legal support.

Excellent Attorney. 5 stars!!
Ms. Williams recently guided me through the divorce process. Ms. Williams imbues such a sense of professionalism and calm that, somehow, the process was as close to stress-free as such a life-changing event can possibly be. Ms. Williams is focused, thorough, and very knowledgeable. She is reliable and trustworthy, and every step of the process reflected her integrity and competence. I particularly appreciated that Ms. Williams was always accessible and that my questions and concerns were promptly addressed. I must also mention the excellent performance of her staff – particularly that of Danielle Covington whose efficiency and attention to detail truly represent that of Ms. Williams.

Thanks to you this year was better than last year and next with be even better. We have come a long way. It’s awkward to say I look forward to our continued work together but it’s also a comforting inevitability. You are competitive, knowledgeable, down to Earth and a f*cking BEAST in the Courts.

Best Lawyer Ever!!!!!!
Attorney Williams was my lawyer in my divorce case. She provided excellent legal advice and support throughout one of the most difficult times of my life. The divorce was tumultuous and Ms Williams never wavered in her representation for me and always reminded me of my best interest. She was very honest and forthcoming as well. I would highly recommend her services.

The Attorney You Want to Represent You- She's a Pit Bull
LaSheena Williams was excellent over the course of six months representing me in a domestic violence case. Not only was her law office accessible to communication, but she was very communicative about the legal proceedings and generated the best plan of action to achieve the outcome I was seeking. I am very happy that I utilized her and I can attest her review rating is accurate per my experience. Furthermore, she ensured my safety was a priority during the case, as well as when it ended due to the nature of my legal matter. She truly cares about her clients and I would highly recommend her to anyone I know who is need of a domestic violence attorney.

Professional and Thorough
Lasheena Williams was great from the start. I searched around for a few weeks trying to locate a prenup lawyer. After about 4 or 5 calls to other attorneys I was almost done with the entire process. Luckily through my search I found Lasheena. She responded to my inquiry within a day, set up a brief conversation with me and I was good to go. I've already put the word out to my colleagues and friends that if you need an attorney who provides legal services in all of the applicable practice areas then PLEASE contact her.

An Amazing Attorney in a Class All by Herself - Exceptional
I feel very fortunate to have had Ms. Williams and her team represent me in my divorce case. Ms. Williams explained the legal process throughout, provided intelligent and strategic counsel and, just as importantly, had a wonderful sense of humor that defused an emotional period for me. Her staff—Chania and Danielle—are without exception also amazing. Ms. Williams is forthright, always approaches situations with candor and compassion. She is a wonderful blend—rarely seen or heard about in the legal world—of heart mixed with moxie. Exactly the kind of person you want in your corner. Ms. Williams is an outstanding attorney bar none that equals, if not surpasses, C-suite law firms (without the sticker shock). Thank you, Ms. Williams.

Worth every penny.
She represented me in Charles County and she was familiar with court house. I'm in Law Enforcement and have been testifying in court for 11 plus years. So I know good representation when I see it. The amount of documentation she acquired and how organized she kept said documentation was impressive. She befuddled her counterpart and I couldn't be happier with the end results. I did refer her to a friend.

World Class Attorney
Hiring Lasheena Williams as my attorney was the best decision I made. She understood my case and did everything in her power to get me the results I needed. Her expertise and professionalism has surpassed my prior experiences with other attorneys, who charged me ridiculous fees and delivered no results. She always kept me informed and prepared me for every court appearance. I would like to thank Ms. Williams for guiding me through the legal process and confidently winning my case. I would definitely refer her to anyone who desires outstanding legal representation.

Ms. Williams helped me from losing my home to the bank, she help guide me through a difficult time in my life and fought for my needs in a way I don't think any other lawyer could. She helped me when no one else would, honestly. I would like to thank her and her team, may God bless them for the help that they gave me. She was worth every penny.

Divorce
Ms. Lasheena Williams is an excellent lawyer she is very smart, knowledgeable and made me feel very comfortable discussing my situation. She took the time to explain the process to me clearly and concise. She help eliminated a lot of stress that I was having about my divorce. The first time I met her I was not prepared to obtain a lawyer. I had just retired and living on a fix income. We talked about cost, she made it so very easy to make payments and affordable. I was able to pay my bill without feeling any additional stress. Ms. Williams and her staff facilitated the entire process and informed or updated me as needed on my divorce. For, me she and her staff demonstrated great people skills, professionalism and presented a positive attitude at all times. I would highly recommend Ms. Williams services to others that maybe looking for an attorney. Ms. Lasheena Williams in one word (Awesome). Jamie

A tough attorney that works hard for her clients, she has class, strategy and savers you time and money and is absolutely phenom
Don’t waste your time with those high fancy law firms. When you are in your time of need and you world is upside down and dealing with legal situations associated with a divorce. She is very effective and you need centered attention type of legal representation. I can’t and will not fail to call out her excellent legal staff. I was in a tough marriage for 2 years 8 months. I was seeking retainers from other attorneys and paying consultation fee after consultation fee and getting was not getting anywhere. I spent almost 2k in consulting fees. I was still even more frustrated with a how the divorce process works and still have not found a good attorney Then I Googled Ms. Williams. I explained to Ms. Williams that I need someone very tough as you my former EX wife is an attorney for the federal government and deals will prosecution. My divorced started off with Ms. Williams representing me in criminal cases from false charges my wife against. ALL of my charges were dismissed. I went thought accusation of abuse, and had at least 4 protective orders filed against me even 4 degree burglary when obtaining my belongings from the marital home with a court order; before we even got to the divorce got started. Ms. Williams will tell you a worst case scenario and fight for the best, long story short my ex-wife had two attorneys representing her and they both removed them self-from the case because they saw the case was going not going anywhere and them my ex-wife represented herself and we still won. I keep all my premarital rental property about 4 homes, my dump truck, 401K and was able to managed to get the martial house sold and divided 50/ 50 and best of all able to get almost 50% physical custody of my son. I would say Ms. Williams is worth every penny spent and I know that I have an excellent attorney if I every need her services again. Thank you so much Ms. Williams!

Not A Typical Lawyer
From the very fi With Miss Williams on your side you'll have a professional intelligent articulate legal counsel. I met her through a company owner I do business with. From my first meeting with her and her staff I felt like a member of the family. After our first consultation I was sure that she would do all that she could to help me and my family through this difficult chaotic time. She did her research and came up with options that I hadn't considered for my divorce. I was able to walk away from my situation more pleased than when I had went in. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone needing legal council.
