I have served as an attorney for over 38 years in 10 counties, SC Court of Appeals and SC Supreme Court. I have experience as a prosecutor in criminal court, and have served as a judge. I pride myself on personal service. I will meet with you personally on your first office visit. I take personal interest in every client and case. For 38 years, my law practice has been based solely on word-of-mouth referrals. My success rate is very high. I live to win. My experience lies in all aspects of family law (adoption, divorce, child-related issues, division of assets and related issues), criminal cases (specializing in all traffic-related matters/driver’s license issues) and injury cases (worker’s compensation, car accidents and other injuries). I am available to discuss any potential law suit you are contemplating. I will answer all of your questions, if I can, or find out the answers to your questions. I look forward to discussing your legal matters on a one-to-one basis. There are no stupid questions. Any and all legal questions are valid. All calls are returned by the next business day. Please leave clearly stated contact information.

Knowledgeable, HARD WORKING, determined
I am so thankful that I had Andrea as my representation. I have been back and forth with custody of my son for years due to false allegations. I had several other lawyers that were not half the lawyer Andrea is. She is passionate about getting results, but also is very to the point. She made things happen in my case that previous lawyers couldn't. To say she is dedicated, wouldn't be enough. I highly highly recommend her to anyone needing EFFECTIVE legal counsel that actually cares, keeps you informed every step of the way, and does not rip you off! She is an angel on earth, and I do not throw that term around loosely. You will not be disappointed with her!! (:

Getting the job done
That’s what I thought about the service rendered by Andrea B Williams. I was in a unique situation and she worked to determine what was needed to resolve my case. She approached every angle to make sure every question or requirement would be addressed. My unmarried daughter died of COVID after delivering a newborn infant by an emergency c-section. The expectation was to be in sedation on the ventilator until are lungs were stronger. She was never able to sign to get the birth certificate and name the father of the child. Neither the father nor myself was able to apply for the birth certificate. Andrea made certain that an emergency hearing was set and we were granted a final hearing at that time so that benefits could begin. She was stern and straightforward and communicated with me to keep me informed. She was also very affordable for the amount of time dedicated to this case. I’m very grateful for her personal concern for my family and would recommend her for any legal matter you may have.

DUI reduced
Andrea Williams is a class act. She is direct, smart, and has the experience to help you out of a DUI. I love her and will always refer her. This was my first time that I needed a lawyer and I was blessed with the best.

Divorce and separation
I contacted Andrea B. Willams because she came highly recommended by a family friend. I was looking for an attorney willing to take charge and explain the process to me. Andrea was everything I needed and more. She took my situation and completely turned it around in a timely manner. Andrea is confident and extremely knowledgeable. In court she was respectful, assertive, professional, organized and well prepared.

Personal Injury
Andrea was tenacious in handling my personal injury (pit bull attack) case. The defendant in the case was extremely difficult - she was dropped from representation by her own attorney - but Andre was unflagging in her efforts to win a judgement for me, and successfully collecting payment. Andrea kept me informed at all times and was always responsive to my calls. She was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process.

Attentive and Caring
Working with Andrea was a complete pleasure. She took the time to get to know me, as well as my situation. Which means a lot because most lawyers don't take the time to do that. She constantly kept me posted, and in the loop. You can tell she has years of extensive experience. I would highly recommend her, as well as use her in the future if needed. Thank you again for your time and commitment with taking care of my case.

Excellent, Affordable, Innovative Family Attorney
Andrea was the only attorney who was willing to take my case and she did so without hesitation. She kept me informed during the entire process (which was terrifying for me). She was also able to come up with innovative ways to ensure that I was able to get custody of my children as well as the deed signed over to my home. Andrea was an exceptional attorney that was very compassionate to my situation. Her fees were very fair and she worked with me to ensure I understood everything that was going on.

Child Support Case
Andrea was referred by my wife's coworker. When I met with her she gave me a really good feeling. Her passion for helping was obvious and she made me feel like she would fight to the end to help me. She was very thorough and she went above and beyond to help me. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a great lawyer and a person who really cares.

Workers Comp Case
Ms. Williams represented my mom in a workers comp case against a large and well known corporation. She was so patient with my mom and guided her through several depositions. It was complicated due to medical costs and procedures and Ms. Williams was always one step ahead. My mom was very pleased with the settlement and with the way the case was handled. Andrea Williams is a true professional and my mom and I would definitely call on her services if needed in the future.

Wonderful Attorney!
When my husband and I were engaged, he was in the middle of a custody battle. Andrea was referred to us by a family friend and she exceeded our expectations while representing my husband. She took this on very last minute and was willing to meet with us on a Sunday to get started with his case. She was thorough, always accessible, and very caring during his proceedings. She has even helped us after the hearing when we had questions, even though she was no longer retained by us. We refer her to everyone we know that needs representation! We even invited her to our wedding!
