Excellent Attorney
Nick was one of the best attorney's I have had the pleasure to work with. He handled the estate for my son, after my son's father passed away last year. Nick worked tirelessly to make sure my son's best interests were always placed at the top of his priorities. In what was a tragic situation, Nick helped my son and I through the entire estate process, often taking on more responsibilities than he should have. I honestly cannot say enough great things about him.

Mr. Williams was the consummate professional, from the moment we met in his office. He took time to understand my personal situation and related concerns, prior to putting pen to paper. Mr. Williams has a very endearing, warm personality which lends itself nicely when making difficult decisions that impact family dynamics and future generations. I highly recommend Mr. Williams for his expertise, and caring demeanor; an often rare combination in the legal profession. The estate planning he executed for me was exceptionally well done and thorough. Family members have peace of mind, as these legal documents are in their possession for decisions they may encounter one day.

Great Attorney
Mr. Williams is very knowledgeable and informative. He took the time to listen and answer all our questions. Our phone calls and emails were responded to promptly, and he kept us informed throughout the case. Mr. Williams offered us trustworthy counsel and aggressive representation, and was the driving force that kept the other attorneys involved moving forward. We enjoyed working with Mr. Williams, and should we need legal representation again, we will most certainly hire Mr. Williams.

Trina's review
Mr. Williams is an excellent listener and very knowledgable. If he didn't have an immediate answer, he would always find the answer very quickly. He was certain to follow through on everything necessary to accomplish the task at hand even when difficulties would arise that were not predicted. He handled all of my needs and was always polite and professional during the entire process. I would and have recommended him to others knowing with confidence that he is going to always provide the very best.

In-depth estate planning
I would most definitely recommend Nick for your estate planning needs. He took the appropriate amount of time to discuss all our questions, while also identifying areas of concern with which we were not familiar. He identified possible solutions using the logic behind his recommendations so that we would feel comfortable with any decision. He was a pleasure to work with and his services were reasonable. My wife and I had wills, durable medical powers of attorney, and Powers of attorney done by Nick in September 2014.

Great Lawyer
I am very happy with my choice to hire Mr. Williams as my lawyer. I was faced with criminal charges along with a few of my friends who each had their own lawyer. I can honestly say that Mr. Williams went above and beyond to create a defense for me against the charges. I truly believe that he is the reason that our charges were dismissed. I would recommend Mr. Williams to anyone looking for a professional, trustworthy, and hard-working lawyer.

Great lawyer who takes your case very seriously
Having had other lawyers before, I can say that the professionalism, demeanor, and approach Mr. Williams showed was absolutely superb when compared to the rest. I was very please with Mr. Williams and my court hearing/s. I would highly recommend Mr. Williams for any and all matters.

Great advocate who cares about you as much as your case.
Mr. Williams represented my daughter and me in my family law case and I found him to be an engaged advocate who was invested in the successful resolution of my case with positive outcomes. He is a thorough and extremely ethical representative who will go to great lengths to find the answers to complex legal questions that are at the heart of the case. His careful attention to detail, professionalism, and knowledge are the guideposts to a practice that is client-focused. Mr. Williams represented me well and I have no doubt that regardless of the issue you might have, Mr. Williams will do the same for you. I highly recommend him.
