Great Attorney
When Karen in Florida caused my life to be in danger by the police. Attorney Williams fought hard to get me a fast generous settlement. He kept me informed on my case and answered all my questions.

Committed Professional and Personable
I Hired Mr Williams late 2017 and from the beginning of the journey he instilled Confidence and expectation that he will get the job done and the case resolved in My favor. Three years later everything he told me would likely happen manifested in a DISMISSAL! Mr Williams did an Outstanding Job in representing and negotiated the most convenient and cost effective terms. He personally called to update me on upcoming court dates, challenges and communications with the Prosecutor office. He overcame minor obstacles gracefully and proved himself a skillful negotiator. Most important, He attended All of My court hearings. In court he was consistently cheerful, pleasant and sociable with everyone in the courtroom including people in the elevators. He's Naturally Charismatic, Charming and Poised. He has a Trustful, Nurturing spirit that made me feel I could leave children and elders in his care and not have a worry in the world. Celebrity Bonus: In Person he has a near Identical resemblance to one of my favorite Funk Legends, RICK JAMES I Highly recommend Attorney Robert Leanza Williams to Anyone in Need Of A Skilled. Personable. Competent Defense Lawyer.

Hit the Jackpot with Mr. Williams
From the picture I knew I have the right lawyer to prosecute and restrained a racist, lousy, vindictive from hell Nighbore. Mr. Williams was very professional but also caring and kind. I have never had a lawyer to represent me before so I did not know what to expect. I was so very upset that I really didn't know what questions that I needed to ask. Mr. Williams compassionate approach gave me the much needed direction and clarity to make sense of what we were facing. He was honest, calming and therefore made it possible for me to calm down enough to make a valid decision about what strategy to persecute that Nighbore from Hell. We won the case and the Nighbore from hell is no longer harassing us. We consider him a friend. He's a true professional and I would refer him to anyone that needs some calm in the midst of a storm.

If you’re looking for an attorney, I highly recommend you hire him. I hired him for someone in jail and he did everything he could for the case. The outcome was great! Answers all questions you have for him via email or phone!

Traffic Ticket
I was given a traffic ticket due to police discrimination (my opinion) so I refused to pay it. Robert helped me to settle it without any point or fine, just a warning.

Relief!
From the very first telephone call Mr Williams was very professional but also caring and kind.. I was so very upset that I really didn't know what questions that I needed to ask. Mr. Williams compassionate approach gave me the much needed direction and clarity to make sense of what we were facing. He was honest, calming and therefore made it possible for me to calm down enough to make a valid decision about what our family needed to do. Throughout the process he checked on us and let us know that he would be with us thru out the process. He's a true professional and I would refer him to anyone that needs some calm in the midst of a storm.

Home Owners Association (HOA) Past Dues
While in the military stationed overseas, my tenant paid the rent but neglected to forward my HOA notices. I unknowingly incurred a hefty HOA past due assessment exceeding $15K. Attorney Williams worked diligently in negotiating my fees to less than half the total. I'm so grateful to attorney Robert Williams, Jr! Semper Fi

Lawsuit Resolved and Dismissed
Helped a friend finance a car, they didn’t pay the note, responsibility fell back on me unfortunately and further the bank was coming after me aggressively with a law suit. Atty Williams, stepped in, quickly got the situation under control, fees reduced by over 1/2 with reasonable payment plan and ultimately law suit dismissed entirely. Could not have had better representation, this is the Atty you should have on your side!!! He is smart, and he is very professional.

Attorney R. Leanz Williams, Jr. Review regarding an automobile accident claim.
Mr. Williams contacted the police department several times to obtain a copy of the police report. He also attempted to contact the perpetrator's insurance company; but apparently had not insurance. This was not uncovered at the scene of the accident by the police, which spoke to the incompetence of the reporting officer. He communicated and negotiated with the driver of the car in which I was a passenger. He also negotiated with the hospital and ER where I was examined, immediately after the accident. He worked efficiently and effectively and always returned calls to me promptly. I would recommend and hire him again, if needed.
