Wise and Experienced Counsel
Efficient, Honest, Knowledgeable, provided timely updates and guidance. Does not make promises he cannot keep. Honest legal advise, and in simple terms that a lay person not fluent in legal matters can follow. I would highly recommend Mr. Williams for all legal matters.

NO FELONY CONVICTION
October 2019 I was arrested for: F- possession marijuana , F- PWID marijuana schedule VI, M- Carrying Concealed Weapon. After a few recommendations and seeing Mr.Williams reviews, i decided he was best to represent me. Unfortunately, in February 2021 I was arrested for the same thing, while out on bond. Mr. Williams was able to put me in contact with another GREAT attorney in Forsyth county. After a year of hard work, Mr.Williams was able to work out a 9096 program for me. In which i plead to NO FELONIES, and ONLY misdemeanor possession of marijuana- less than 1-1/2 ounces. NO GUN CHARGE, NO FELONY, and 12 months of probation, that if I complete- the misdemeanor will not go on my record. To say the least, Mr.Williams is the most hardworking, organized, down to earth, lawyer I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Everyone in his office is punctual, respectful, and down right amazing. He took the worry out of every situation. He is TRULY one of the GREATEST lawyers in America. Every plaque / award he has received is beyond just in saying so! Keith Willians SAVED my ability to get professional licenses by avoiding these felonies. I’m eternally grateful.

Felony Expungement
Mr. Williams and his team were amazing!!! They were very informative through the entire process. Every detail minor or major, I was made aware of it. A full expungement of my file that was 15 years old had been the blessing of a lifetime and I owe it all to Mr. Williams!!!

, Value Mr. Williams & his staff gained my complete confidence during our initial case consultation. Throughout the process of resolving a firearm restoration issue, Mr. Williams demonstrated professional organization, leadership, & support. Perhaps most importantly, Mr. Williams took ownership & accountability in my case's success. I highly recommend him for any area of law that he covers. A+!!!

Very knowledgeable and friendly!
I contacted Keith regarding restoration of my gun rights to see if I would need to retain his services. He informed me on his experience and guided me on what I would need to do involving my situation. I told him I was waiting on some more info and he told me just to send it to him and he would take a look. I had several email and phone correspondences. In the end he did not think I would need to retain his services and felt I was able to move forward on my own. Thank you Keith for all your help! I would highly recommend him for your next case.

Keith is a phenomenal lawyer.
I hired Mr. Williams after a huge misunderstanding that cost me my job and threw my life into upheaval. He never stopped working for me over the months it took to resolve this issue. He did exactly what he said he would do. Charges are dismissed and my life is back on the right track. I can't thank him enough!

Review
Had issues that required correcting wrong information in a background data base on a federal level. Mr. Williams stepped up to the plate, did his research, presented the false information to the Gov. and requested a correction. The Gov., after doing their investigation, corrected the false information in the data base. Mr. Williams worked diligently and professionally on my case. I would use him again and highly recommend him to anyone.

Amazing
Keith will always be there for you and was awesome in regards to helpfulness and experience. He got the results I wanted and desperately needed when the chances of those results were slim to none. If you need the guy, he is the one and I still call him from time to time and he responds to me and calls me back quick. He is the best lawyer I have ever had and HIGHLY recommend him.

Excellent experience
Mr. Williams was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process of my expungement. He got to work right away, explained every detail of the procedure, and kept me informed of what was going on with my case every step of the way. I never once felt like we were "wasting time" nor regretted hiring his office to handle my issue. Thanks to the expertise of Mr. Williams and his staff, the process was simple, understandable, completed well before I had anticipated and I can finally move past the mistakes I made when I was younger. I only wish I had contacted them sooner.

Exceptional Lawyer
Mr. Keith Williams provided such amazing service. Referred by a co-worker after the first attorney I hired put me in a worse situation that resulted in a simple assault charge with a family member. Mr. Williams not only had my case dismissed, he also had it expunged from my record. I was so highly impressed with his professionalism, honesty, fairness and the knowledge he shared each step of the way, explaining all aspects so I'd understand. I couldn't recommend another attorney with such high standards as I can for Mr. Williams. If I ever have the need for legal services again, I will not waste another dollar on a second rate lawyer. Mr. Williams also has a team that are just as wonderful and professional. Confidentiality and Professionalism are a guarantee. I can promise if you are searching for an exceptional lawyer, make the call, you will not be disappointed.

GUN RIGHTS
I had contacted several attorneys in my area. None of which would or could help. After emailing Mr. Williams i was contacted very promptly. He reviewed my situation and took my case. He also restored my confidence in this matter. He also gave me frequent updates and never once left me in limbo throughout this entire process. Not to mention he was well over an hour away from where my case was to be held in court as I feel would have been a deal breaker for most attorneys. I could not have been more pleased with the entire process.

Keith Williams helps clients recover and get on with their lives
My teen-aged son made some bad choices and faced potential daunting legal ramifications for his actions. Thank God for Keith Williams; he did an outstanding job of guiding my son, wife, and I through what was, at times, a gut-wrenching legal process. In addition to his impressive legal knowledge and skills, Mr. Williams brought a calm, informed and reassuring presence to the situation. Like most criminal lawyers, Mr. Williams assists clients through the complex legal machinations that exists, but his value and impact is far greater than just that; he helps people recover and redeem themselves... and opens doors of opportunity for them so that they can learn from their mistakes and get on with their lives. Mr. William’s made the difficult and emotional circumstances tolerable by providing the counsel and encouragement that we all needed… not just for my son, but my wife and I too. Thanks to Mr. Williams and the positive legal outcomes he was able to achieve, my son’s life is once again filled with optimism and we could not be more proud of the bright and accomplished young man he is today. Keith Williams has my family’s eternal gratitude and admiration.

Very Professional
Contacted Mr. Williams via his website and received a call from him the next day. Mr. Williams was very prompt, personable, and honest in his discussions of my situation. During the course of my expungement application process he kept me informed and very accurately outlined the process and timing it would take. Had a successful conclusion and all of the advise and information provided was accurate.

Client
I have the highest respect for Keith Williams and his legal assistant Whitney. They were very prompt in replying to my calls, text messages and emails. From the time the charges were levied through the trial they worked with the District Attorney resulting in a favorable outcome. During this time Keith discussed the legal options with me and kept me informed of his ongoing discussions with the DA.
