This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
civil suit case
We hired Mr.Williams to represent us in a civil trial. He went above and beyond what was expected. Throughout the process he kept us extremely informed and explained each step. He is very approachable ...extremely informed in his field. We would highly recommend him to represent anyone.

A Truly Consummate Professional
I had the opportunity to work with Kevin after my parents' fatal auto accident with a semi-truck. Kevin worked with all those affected (not just as an attorney, but also as a sounding board at times), and kept us all up-to-date as the lawsuit progressed. He worked with the insurance company for the trucking line, my parents' insurance company, traveled to interview all the parties involved, and was always there to answer any questions we had no matter how trivial we felt they might have been. I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a quality attorney who will provide you with honest (both good and bad) answers, and fight for your best interests.
