Best Lawyer in Raleigh
I would place The Batch & Williams Law office in Raleigh as one of the most professional, trustworthy and hard-working groups in the Triangle. As a busy professional I needed to hire an attorney with consummate knowledge of the law, and someone I could trust. They guided me through my legal issues and kept me informed of all my options. Not only were they helpful and kind, but they gave my specific case the time and care other it needed to be successful, and thanks to Patrick Williams and his gifted and hard-working team, I won my case! Also, their staff is bilingual which was helpful in my situation. I cannot recommend them highly enough and I could not be happier with my decision to work with them.

Legal Advice on Small Claims Process
Mr. Williams was very thorough in explaining the procedure I should follow in a dispute I had with a nationally recognized company. Because of his expertise and the concern he exhibited for my legal rights to fair treatment as a client of a major corporate enterprise, I was able to resolve my dispute. I highly recommend Mr. Williams.

Best Attorney Yet!
Patrick handled a criminal/traffic claim for me. He was professional, accessible, and responsive. I was able to resolve my charges and retain my driving privileges. I'd recommend Patrick in a heartbeat to anyone in need of a good lawyer.
