I am licensed to practice law in all courts in the State of Florida and I am licensed in federal court in the United States Court of the Middle District of Florida. I have aggressively litigated, to trial, cases in both federal and state court.

 

I specialize in helping individuals and businesses in resolving disputes in many ways - collaborative, mediation and litigation.  I see litigation as a last resort due to the costs, but should it be necessary, have the expertise to do so.  

 

 

I was born and raised in Florida. I grew up locally and I attended Winter Park High School and U.C.F.  I graduated first in my class from law school. I love my work and my clients stay close, just a call away.

Guardian Angel
When I met Susan I was going through the worst time in my life. Never having used an attorney I didn't know what to expect. Her experience and knowledge with handling divorces helped in every aspect. I couldn't be more happier with my divorcee precedings and outcome. Her encouragement and positive attitude got me through this difficult situation. God Bless you Susan Williams you are truly my guardian angel.

Amazing Family Lawyer Who Helped Us Become a Family
Mrs. Williams is an excellent attorney. She handled an adoption case for us. She was always quick to answer questions and return calls and emails. She encouraged and reassured us along the way. She handled everything with excellence and integrity. She was a blessing to us and helped us become a family! I have recommended her to both my family and colleagues.

Tough, honest, Christian attorney!
Mrs. Williams has helped us with several matters over the last few years. With every issue, she gives it her full attention and expertise. She is always kind and sensitive in dealing with us, but is tough when it comes to our legal matter. She is dedicated to getting the outcome that her clients desire. I appreciate that she has a high, Christian ethical standard. That is refreshing not only in the legal profession, but society in general today! She has proven over and over for us that you can be a bulldog in court and in working with other attorneys and still maintain a high level of professional ethics. If you're looking for an honest, tough attorney that will work hard for you, call Mrs. Williams! You will not be disappointed!
