Knowledge and Wisdom
I contacted Mr. Williams at a time when I was in severe financial distress due to credit card debt from a business collapse. I had just learned that bankruptcy was not an option for me, and I was behind on my debt payments. During our initial telephone consultation, Mr. Williams clearly outlined a plan of action which included debt negotiation with a few of my creditors. He filed the appropriate documents with the court and worked out a debt repayment plan which stayed within my budget. His legal knowledge is outstanding, and he applies the principles of law with such command and accuracy. I'm so grateful for Mr. Williams' help with debt reduction through negotiation with the creditors. I would be in a complete mess both financially and legally if I had not known to contact Mr. Williams. I am indeed grateful for his professional help.

THE LAWYER YOU'RE LOOKING FOR
I contacted Jeff for help with a few liens that were placed on my property. I was trying to sell my home, but that's not possible until the title is clean. We had very little time, and the amounts owed were outside our ability to pay. Jeff stepped in, researched the situation, dug through case law and doggedly negotiated with our creditors. He succeeded in persuading them to clear the liens for a small fraction of what they were originally demanding. The liens were cleared, we sold our home and were extremely relieved. Communication from Jeff throughout the process was superb. Don't bring a water gun to a machine gun fight. By comparison, Jeff is a nuclear bomb of skill and confidence. He's also a man of great faith, which is certainly a plus! Stop looking and call Jeff now.

second morgage advice
Jeff and I corresponded via email. After looking over my paperwork regarding a second morgage issue, he gave me the best advice that I have been given. He actually gave me an option that did not require his services that fit our needs. I would definately recommend this law firm to anyone that has debt or bankruptcy needs. Jeff seems like a very honest guy.

Former Client
Mr. Jeffrey Williams previously handled a legal matter for me which I was completely satisfied with the end results. I have also recently consulted with Jeff about about a family law situation, and he was most helpful in advising me of steps that I should take to arrive at the best possible outcome, which I'm very appreciative of his experience, expertise, knowledge, and patience, as was exhibited to me. Moreover, Jeffrey Williams is a compassionate, and understanding attorney. I wouldn't hesitate recommending Jeff's legal services to anyone seeking honest and competent legal representation.

Jeff delivered excellent results at a reasonable price
We hired Jeff Williams to help us with a title loan matter. Interest was building rapidly and the unsettling calls were coming in. For a very reasonable price, Jeff took care of everything including negotiating favorable settlement terms and delivering the lien-free car title. Our credit is totally clean of this matter. He helped us wipe the slate clean and get the monkey off our backs. Jeff is an all-around good guy. He answers your phone calls or will return your call promptly, never leaving you in the dark about what's going on. If you have some debt issues, Jeff is your guy.

Excellent attorney who works for you
He gave good assistance & brought about a very favorable resolution quickly in my bankruptcy case against my tenants, and keeps me informed on relevant matters. Mr. Williams is trusty worthy and very professional who will take care of your case HIMSELF; while most attorney convince you for your business first and then ask a paralegal, an assistant o r even a interns to handle your case. Who wants a interns to work for you while you are paying the attorney?

Exceptional legal representation! Extremely knowledgeable, honest & trustworthy!
Without going into too much detail about my particular cases, I've used Jeffery Williams as my attorney on two separate occasions. In both cases Mr. Williams was able to have my criminal charges dropped, without me ever having to enter a courtroom! Justice prevailed thanks to Jeff Williams's expert knowledge of the legal system. I highly recommend Mr. J. Jeffrey Williams to anyone searching for quality legal representation!

Smart, professional, and kind attorney
My sister recommended Jeff Williams to me when i needed an attorney. She sung his praises to such an extent i knew she must be exaggerating. I was pleasantly surprised when working with Jeff that everything my sister said about him was correct. He is the nicest, smartest, most understanding attorney I have ever worked with. He is a person of high moral character, as well as being pleasant on every occasion I have spoken with him. I would feel comfortable recommending him to anyone who needs help with bankruptcy and wills. This guy knows his stuff, and you can rest assured that Jeff will do his best on your behalf.

Intellectual Powerhouse Attorney - Highly Recommended
Very competent and understanding. We used him to handle a complicated corporate matter some time ago, and we were very pleased with his work. Reasonably priced and high quality work.

Commendation
Recently (08/01/13) I retained the legal services of J. Jeffrey Williams that I am quite pleased of the outcome of my legal case. Mr. Williams, a true professional in every sense of the word, handled my case with the utmost professional care and attention. He demonstrated strong ethical conduct, and that he was knowledgeable, trustworthy, personable and possessed of an exceptional legal mind. Last but not least, Jeff Williams is not entirely focus on just taking your money, as he shows compassion, and always seeks to assist you with achieving the best possible outcome in resolution of your legal matter. I would highly recommend Mr. Williams.
