When in need of an attorney hire Mickey Williams
My husband and I decided we needed to have a Will created in order to protect our assets and our children. Mickey went above and beyond he interviewed both of us separately and listen to our wants and needs. From then he proceeded to create the will in what seemed like an expedited manner. Mickey is very personable, understandable, and relatable. We couldn’t be happier with our choice. If you need an attorney you should hire Mickey Williams, you will not be disappointed.

Amazing service from a tough customer!
I called in the middle of the day - both Steve and Mickey stopped what they were doing and created a conference call - they were incredibly knowledgeable on the subject matter and provided a very clear way forward. It is rare that I am impressed with humans and their work ethic (after 30 yrs in the Marine Corps) - but this law firm is AMAZING

Saved Both My Career and Future
“Mickey and Rob saved both my career and future. I contacted Mr. Robert Capovilla shortly after I was notified that the Army intended to separate me. Mr. Capovilla informed me of the steps the Army would make and helped me get my defense packet together. Thankfully I had them on my case because my Army appointed lawyer from TDS tried to get me investigated by CID. Rob was able to get that TDS attorney kicked off my case and got me a TDS attorney from another post. Rob handled all contact with the military prosecution and let me know everything that the Army was doing behind the scene. The Army set a board date that Rob was not able to make because of another trial, so after a conference between Rob, Mickey and I, we decided not to give the Army more time to prepare, and Mickey took up the case. Mickey came down the day before the board to go over all the evidence, character statements, and my testimony multiple times with me. I went into the separation board with a plan of action, confident and prepared. Mickey destroyed the military prosecutor, and the board found me not guilty. I had 12 years of decorated service in special operations. Rob and Mickey saved my career, retirement and VA benefits. I would not trust another law firm with my future on the line. If you find yourself in trouble with the military, contact Rob and Mickey before you say or do anything.”

Mr. Williams was the calmness of mind I needed.
Mr. Williams was very quick to reach back out to me and provided excellent guidance. He was very professional and was the subject matter expert. I’ve reached out to other individuals and the information I received from Mr. Williams was very calming and decisive. Will recommend to my family and friends.

Guilty until proven innocent
Mr. Mickey Williams was one of the gentlemen that represented me in my HQDA mandated separation board. My ex-wife is military law enforcement and used her knowledge and position to try to ruin my life, my career, my relationship with my kids and have me lose 22 years worth of benefits. Mickey was able to rapidly and accurately see that the statements made against me were fabricated. He preparation and experience made it possible for me to finally tell my side of the story. My board went on for over 13 hours. Mickey had taken the time to ensure that his examinations were seamless and had the knowledge of all the facts. His questioning of my ex-wife, an agent with CID, caused her to show to the board how little integrity she has. His direct questioning led to her exercising the right to remain silent and refused to answer his questions. Mickey's actions saved my career. I am so grateful to have found Capovilla and Williams. I would recommend them to anyone that is the victim of crime in the military. Mickey has a superb understanding of military law and his no-nonsense approach to a case ensures that the victims story will be heard. I cannot thank him enough for the peace and hope that has returned to my life.

Listener and Negotiator
Once in awhile you need a legal advisor and before you receive the advice, you need a listener that is sympathepic to your situation. Mickey patiently listened to my cause and then with great tact, emphathy, and professionalism gave me sound and practical legal advice. He negotiated on my behalf and came to very favorable terms. He support me through my situation by looking out for me until the very end of my ordeal, even after final terms were reached. Mickey made me feel if I was his only client, yet I know he had other clients at the same time that he gave equally precious time. I will use Mickey again without any hesitation if I need a lawyer. You can be rest assured that Mickey will take good care of you.

He saved my life
I was facing charges at a General Court Martial. Capovilla and Williams was recommended to me and looking back I can only call it fate. Mr. Williams was constantly updating me with situations arising with my case as well as giving me as much time as necessary to understand all aspects of the case. In the court room he was aggressive, strategic, and knowledgeable. To say that I was impressed by the way he fought for me in court would be an understatement. All through the trial he would tell me to focus on time with my family and let him worry about the case. I would recommend Mr. Williams for any cases in the future.

Veteran Attorney that will fight for you
I had the pleasure of observing Mr. Williams while attending a trial as a character witness in case my friend got convicted. My job was to speak to the jury during sentencing. Thanks to his hard work, passion, and determination. My services as a character witness were not needed. The verdict came in NOT GUILTY! This was solely due to Mr. Williams continuously fighting for the members of the jury to see the truth. Highly recommend his services to anyone in need of fair, strong, and relentless representation.

An honest and superior lawyer
My legal situation began in Jan2020 and I was detailed military counsel and obtained a civilian trial attorney. As time progressed, my civilian attorney began to show less motivation to assist my detailed counsel and little to no concern for my upcoming General Courts Martial. I decided to terminate representation of my initial civilian attorney and reach out to Capovilla and Williams for assistance. After a brief conversation with their firm, I was convinced that they were the attorneys that would best represent me in my proceedings. During my initial contact with Mr. Williams, his responses and recommendations were passionate and he swiftly acted upon them. My experience interviewing other attorneys was contrary to this and most immediately discussed the financials of representation; Capovilla and Williams provided a path forward and discussed financials after knowing my situation. Throughout my journey to trial, Mr. Williams demonstrated honest feedback regarding all potential outcomes, remained transparent and honest. He worked extremely well with my detailed attorney throughout. His work ethic, dedication and sincerity, not only to my case, but to my family was more than I could have asked for. Mr. Williams worked late into the evening and on weekends to adequately prepare for trial ensuring to evaluate any and all possibilities we may encounter in Court. During the trial, his gut instincts were spot on and positively influenced the direction of the trial, ultimately surprising the prosecution. Mr. Williams balance between assertion and passivity were perfectly timed, resulting in positive influence of the prosecution and the courtroom as a whole. The severity of charges against me warranted an excellent Attorney, and I found that in Mr. Williams. I honestly believe that, had I stuck with my original attorney, I would not have gotten the favorable outcome that I received.

You need this guy!
Mickey Williams has been my lawyer for a little over a year and has been extraordinary. When you need someone to have your back and defend you, you need Mickey. Even though I didn’t have to go to trial Mickey worked tirelessly to defend my name and I know if I had to go to court I would want Mickey standing next to me.

He saved my life.
I failed the UA after coming back from the Christmas block leave. I was frustrated and did not know what to do. I knew I did not ingest THC, but there was no way to prove it by myself. No one was listening to me. My best friend in the army referred Williams & Capovilla law-firm for my case and I hired him right away. He offered me a free phone consultation. He was dedicated and willing to help my case 24/7. I only had limited time to fight but Mickey was able to handle the case within a deadline. He assigned his investigator to my case and interviewed witnesses in a timely manner. The rebuttal statement was well written and it turn over my commander’s mind. They believed me and dropped the charges. I am so glad I found the right lawyer. He is the best. Mr. Williams knows how to plan and fight the military case. Thank you so much.

This Law Firm Fights!
BLUF: I am an Active Duty, Senior Enlisted, member that was facing three separate rape allegations made by my ex-wife. After nearly a year of being under investigation, all charges were dropped, no administrative action was taken, and Command recommended no impact to my security clearance. This was all due to the knowledge, intelligence, and strategy applied to my case by Robert Capovilla and Mickey Williams. First- If you have been brought in for questioning by CID for any allegation against you (especially sexual assault), STOP everything and obtain legal counsel. DO NOT speak with CID again without legal counsel. I was brought into CID and they read the allegations that my ex-wife had made against me. They were of no surprise to me, as she had made the same allegations to civil authorities who dismissed them completely within the 30 days. I was confused though. Was I being interviewed or interrogated? Had I been “arrested”? As I was being questioned by the CID agent, I noticed a pattern- he was asking the same questions over and over in different ways. At times, it seemed he/they were “on my side”, and then it became truly clear, that was not the case at all. At that point, I ended the interrogation and informed them that I was going to obtain legal counsel before saying anything else. I never spoke with CID again after obtaining legal counsel. I quickly hired a local attorney who had reputable reviews. His strategy was simple, “we wait until charges are preferred, and fight them in the court-martial”. This strategy did not sit well with me as I knew I was innocent. The days turned into months; the stress compounded daily. Then one day my wife posed the question, “perhaps we should obtain a new law firm?”. That is when we hired Rob and Mickey- perhaps the most important decision I have ever made in my life. Rob and Mickey’s firm was not local, so all consultations were done via email, phone conversation, and text. I was worried about how smoothly things might run with no face to face consultation, but throughout the lengthy process, Rob and Mickey never missed a beat. They quickly responded to all forms of communication, whether from myself or my wife. Like all military members, “hurry up and wait”, never sat well with me. I was at the mercy of the military process, and when it comes to criminal charges- the process is lengthy. Rob and Mickey were able to curb my lack of patience on countless occasions through sound advice. My wife and I had done tons of research as to how the military process works, but we never would have fully understood without the knowledge and expertise of Rob and Mickey. They would make strategical moves when required, and politely shelved my numerous impulsive requests when no action was necessary. I was innocent, and I wanted this behind me. Rob and Mickey had a genuine way of reminding my wife and I that justice would prevail. Trusting your lawyer(s) is the most important mental decision you will have to make in the process. My wife and I put our trust into Rob and Mickey. Putting your career and life in the hands of another person is extremely difficult, but we put ours into theirs. In the end, justice prevailed and all charges against me were dropped and no administrative action was taken. My wife and I will never be able to thank Rob and Mickey enough for their impeccable advice, knowledge, and perfectly sound representation.

The Attorney You Need to Hire
I hired Mickey Williams when I was accused of committing adultery. The command initiated an investigation and turned my whole life upside down. I had never been in trouble before, so I needed someone with experience in the process to help guide me through it. Mickey did his job better than I could’ve hoped for. He began talks with the investigator and the prosecution and persuaded them not to go forward with any judicial action. He called every witness and received, compiled, and reviewed over twenty character statements. His draft rebuttal to the command was well written and used with no changes from me. He was beyond prepared to take on whatever came our way and his experience was a tremendous force multiplier. I've always been told to follow the advice of your counsel and I am glad I followed Mickey's to the letter as the results in the end of the process were very favorable to me. I highly recommend Mickey to anyone needing solid, no bullshit legal advice and representation. I will recommend him in the future to those that need it without question.

Great attention to detail to the case
No one wants to hire a lawyer, its not typically done when life is going good. However, Mickey's honesty with me about my situation, as well as the approach he used with both preparing me for my defense and taking time to get the true angle of my situation, ultimately won my case. I was so was lost under piles of check box governmental processes that has little room for truth and human error/second chances for mistakes, and being made to look like someone I was someone I wasn't, I felt like I was drowning and ready to just give up and give in to the governmental cog wheel that just grinds up anyone going through the process. He corrected all of that and took the pressure and stress off of me for my defense. He was very kind, professional, and blunt when he needed to be. He was exactly the person i needed to hire. I am very happy I hired him!
