I was a father seeking full custody of my son. In selecting an attourney I found many lawfirms took the aproach and even advertised that my finances would be my number one concern and that some or equal visitation should be my goal. Garry was the only attourney of the many interviewed that understood the importance to me of getting full custody of my son. He listened and made himself and his staff accessable to me at all times. He understood that for my son's safety, full custody was the only acceptable outcome. Probably the best example of what made Garry not only the lawyer I chose, but one I would recommend to anyone in a hostile divorce and or custody battle is; One day I stopped by Garry's office to drop off some paperwork prior to our hearing. I noticed that each of his staff that were working on my case had a picture of my son on their desk with the note, "(my son's name) is our client he is counting on us!". That is when I knew that I was with a firm that understood the importance and was commited to my child custody case.
I now have full custody of my son and am thankful for the time and dedication that Gary and his staff put in on my behalf.

As a single mother who was never married, I started interviewing attorney's when my sons father wouldn't agree on custody and told me I could never get the custody I wanted. Once I met Gary, I felt I was in the right place. He introduced me to the people who would be getting me through this process and the results I wanted. His staff was always more than helpful and took my calls promptly. I was always informed of what was going on as I received emails on any documents pertaining to my case so I was never left wondering what was happening. Everytime I went frantic and was nervous Gary would ensure me that I Had nothing to worry about. Gary successfully won the outcome of my custody battle with the results I wanted. Gary and his team go above and beyond in working to ensure my sons best interest was put first. I would highly recommend Gary and his staff!

I highly recommend Gary Williams and his staff. Gary takes a very strategic approach to divorce and carefully explains the realities of your case rather than what you want to hear. Gary and his staff truly care about you as a person and your family and not just the case. He achieved an outcome for me that was better and smoother than I anticipated and was worth every penny of his fee.

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.
