Albert Jerome Williams Jr
I hired Mr Williams over 8 years ago for an ESC case. He did an AWESOME job and won my case hands downs!! He also remembered exactly who I was, when I consulted him recently about a new case. Although I did not win my case, Mr Williams went above and beyond what I would have ever expected from him, and never charged me a dime. He was sincere, compassionate, light hearted and is just truly an incredible person and attorney. I highly recommend Jerome Williams, if you ever need help with the ESC!

Mr. Williams recently won my case after an appeal and then a continuance. I had faith and trust in him from our first phone call. If you listen understand and do everything he asks you will have such a higher advantage. He is an extremely professional Knowledgable lawyer that is honest with you from day one. He will explain to you how to dress, respond to questions in court, how to physically present yourself with body language etc. This great lawyer covers every angle necessary to get the job done, and he dies it right the first time. As his client you have a higher advantage doing everything he teaches and explains to you. Thank you once again for all you have done for my family Mr. Williams. My whole family thanks you

We Won !! Thanks to Mr. Williams
We had a case in which I was fired on trumped up charges. I won the initial case so my ex employer decided to appeal. They had a laundry list of documents and tried to intimidate me. Mr Williams was recommended by another attorney. On initial consultation, Mr Williams told me he didn't take cases he didn't think he could win and would take my case. That was such a relief to be reassured from the beginning that we could win. Mr Williams gathered his information from all parties and decided on his game plan.. Mr. Williams informed us about the proceeding , how it would go and left no stone unturned. Even down to where to sit and what to wear.. It was such relief to have someone as sure and competent as Mr Williams represent me. HE was the difference from being intimidated by an ex employer and a slam dunk in the hearing. I hope I never get fired again, but I will definitely call Mr. Williams first thing if the need arises.

Fantastic lawyer!!
Mr. Williams knows what he us doing, contains a wealth of knowledge, is intimidating in the court room, and comes with an extensive background and tons of experience. He truly cares about his client's case outcome, you must listen to his instruction as he knows best and what he is doing. He is truly dedicated, this is his lifes work. I hope I never have to use him again but am truly happy I did and highly recommend him. Anyone who is willing to listen, do it his way, and dress to impress, go for it! Fantastic lawyer, fantastic person! Thank you!

Professional and personal
I cannot imagine having a better experience or outcome than I did with Mr. Williams. Right from the beginning he put me at ease by telling me exactly what I'd need to do in order to win my case. He is courteous and considerate, and I now consider him a friend. Opposing counsel was befuddled by his knowledge of the law as well as his command of the of the process overall. Needless to say, I won my appeal.

Meticulous in his profession.
Hiring Attorney Williams immediately brought me peace of mind. He states his plan; gathers all information then works that plan to the fullest of his capabilities. Like watching a master hone his skills. Assisting him in preparing my case for hearing brought the desired results. I received the full benefit payments. So very thankful for all his months of preparation. I was very proud to have him for my attorney. Always the gentleman, he guides you through each phase of the process with tact and decorum.

If you are in need of assistance securing your unemployment benefits, do not hesitate retaining Attorney Jerome Williams to assist you. Although no attorney can be assured that they will win your case, Attorney Williams will be up front with you and let you know if he thinks you have a fighting chance. I must admit I had a lot of things that were not in my favor and I was very skeptical as to whether I had a chance of winning my case. Within a few weeks, after speaking with Attorney Williams, my skepticism went to optimism. In the end, my case was won. I can't say enough how glad I am that I chose to have Attorney Williams represent me. I can't discuss the facts of my case here, but if Attorney Williams wants to give my number to any potential clients to let you know what I was up against, I would have no problem at all with that.

The right attorney for the job
After explaining my case to Attorney Williams, he told me very frankly what my chances were. I had a tough case. He then said, "I don't take cases to lose and I will take your case". I was extremely impressed with Attorney Williams' knowledge of employment law and his knowledge of how the system worked. There were multiple delays during my case which was no due to an under-staffed and heavy work load volumn at the Commission. Attoney Williams kept me informed through the delays and, I believe, worked very hard on my behalf to get my hearing scheduled. Attorney Williams was able to negotiate a settlement with my former employer prior to the hearing. I would recommend Attorney Williams 100%. If you have an employment related issue, you need to call Attorney Williams.

He's the man that knows how to get the job done
No one would listen to my side of the story.i spoke with all the managers in the corporation i work for to try fight my case,but to no avail they all were one sided, made me feel like everybody was against me and nobody listening to the facts that prove my innocents. Things slowly began to go downhill first suspension then termination then began to head towards denial of unemployment benefits. That's when i felt it was the last draw. I contacted Mr Albert Jerome William, Best choice i could have made, He listened, and though he would like to say there's no guarantees i say i guarantee if you want a good job done then he's your man...Hire him and you will see for yourself ...Thanks Jerome and may God Give you the best of this world and the next .peace.

If you want to hit the "Jackpot" finding a great lawyer...Mr. Albert Jerome Williams, Jr. is the one for you !
Without hesitation I would highly recommend Mr. Abert Jerome Williams, Jr. for representation. He is very thorough, keeps you informed and knows a lot of "ins and outs" that most lawyers may not know. He represented me in an unemployment hearing and although the outcome was not in my favor, he was able to get me about 8 months worth of unemployment benefits, which I am ever so grateful for. My outcome had nothing to do with his skills, it was a clear cut situation in the end. He is extremely knowledgeable in unemployment/rights/laws. I also would have to say he did a great job at making me feel at ease throughout the entire process. A real southern gentleman. He is well worth the nominal fee he charges.

Mr. Williams was very professional. He took the time to explain to me how things would go, and what to expect. He was right there for me during the case.

You'll want Mr. Williams on your side
From the moment Mr. Williams took my case, I felt confident that I had put my trust in the right attorney. His knowledge of, and experience with employment law is unsurpassed in my opinion. Because he skillfully navigated me through the legal process, and kept me well informed throughout, my stress level was minimized. Ultimately I was able to continue receiving the unemployment benefits to which I was entitled.
