    I have had quite a few cases with Mr. Williams over the past several years. Mr. Williams takes a reasonable and experienced approach to his cases, which allows the family to come away with a positive resolution while keeping the attorneys fees and costs at an affordable rate. Mr. Williams is board certified in marital and family law, and competently litigates issues when appropriate. He is well known in the legal community and I endorse his work.
