HURT IN AN ACCIDENT? I WILL PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS AND MAXIMIZE YOUR RECOVERY.

As Founder of Keith Williams Law Group, I dedicate my practice to helping everyday people and their families in accident, injury and wrongful death cases.  I am certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. I am honored to be a frequent lecturer at legal seminars and webinars to attorneys in Tennessee and across the country.

 

I am actively involved in a number of legal organizations that work to maximize the rights of injured people.  Nationally, I am an Chair-Elect of the AAJ Aviation Section as well as a member of the Public Justice Foundation.  Locally, I am on the Board of the Tennessee Association for Justice (TAJ), serve on the Executive Committee and Board of Governors of the TAJ, a member of the TAJ Circle of Advocates, and serve as Co-Chairman of the TAJ Legislative Committee.  I also a contributing member of Lawyers Involved for Tennessee.

 

Most important to my clients - I am an experienced and battle-tested trial attorney with significant courtroom experience, having tried hundreds of cases in front of a judge or jury and obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for my clients.  I have obtained numerous substantial verdicts, including a $6,200, verdict believed to be the largest ever obtained in Sumner County, Tennessee.  In addition to courtroom successes, I have also negotiated hundreds of significant settlements for clients across Tennessee and across the country from California to Pennsylvania. 

 

For example, I represented the estate and minor child of one of the victims of the Comair Flight 5191 crash in Lexington, Kentucky.  During that lengthy litigation—which involved dozens of plaintiffs, numerous defendants, and countless other attorneys—I was actively involved as part of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee (which guided the litigation for the various Plaintiffs) and served with a group of select attorneys chosen for the Plaintiffs’ trial team. I also recently represented a family whose child was severely injured in a trucking accident. We were able to prove not only liability from the trucking company, but also 3rd party broker liability from the freight broker. That case settled for a Confidential amount.

 

Although courtroom victories are exciting, the most gratifying part of my work is seeing the benefits that my clients receive as a result of the settlements and/or trial victories achieved. Everyone who is injured in an accident deserves the right to a dignified and secure recovery and my passion is fighting to ensure they get it.

I was told I never had a chance even know It was not my fault
I was told I never had a chance even know It was not my fault by other lawerys and Judges well Keith Williams believed me. Thanks again. no doubt the Best in Tennessee or South East I think you understand what I am stating here I dont want this to sound like a cheap tv commercial every one I talked to laughed at me saying I had know chance even know had the accident they all said move on and forget it. After the car accident I had two back surgerys and my daughter was also injured in a car wreck.I thought I had no chance after my wreck I was a single dad with three kids injured could not work for a least one year Thought I was going to lose every thing That I worked for my whole life for me and my kids but you might think this is a boring story I could right a book of my last four years of my life how the wrecked changed my life and my family well guess what when I thought my life could get worse it did. I had to be strong and fight for all I had. I remember this one day me and my lawyer where headed home after a terrible mediation I told Keith I was sorry and wanted give up he Looked at me he said I believe you get mad he said and lets kick some tail in a nice way well thats what Keith Williams and his whole office did a great job Dawna Kinne Magliacano she is Keith's Paralegal what a team she was so nice and understanding and would talk to me any time I needed some answers or advice I can't say enough about Keith Williams and his team.

A very Professional Attorney That Takes All Cases Very Serious
After having a work related injury in 2007, I immediately started having problems with Workers Comp in getting the treatment I needed. After all attempt by me to get the treatment needed without any success, I contacted Attorney B. Keith Williams. He immediately came from Lebanon TN to my residenceto meet with me. He took my case and within the first week I started getting taken care of and could not have got through this difficult time without his representation. His staff kept me up to date and informed of everything happening on my case and before I knew it I had the surgery I needed and things started being taken care of.

Dedication of his office staff
We contacted Mr. Keith Williams when we had the accident with a truck, It took a while to get the papers needed to serve, but Mr. Williams and his staff kept right on trying. Then Covid-19 hit, and due this problem, it took longer, but they kept right on working for us, As far as we can see, they went above and beyond their working powers to get the case settled. I will recommend Mr. Keith Williams and his office staff 100%. 10Stars will not do it, but that is as high as stars go. Should I need an attorney in the future there is only 1 telephone call we need to make and that is to Mr. Williams office in Lebanon, Tenn. Thank you Mr. Williams and staff and especially Ms. Kirstie Land.

I am so glad I took my case to Keith Williams!
I was completely intimidated with all the paperwork and bills from my accident. It wasn't my fault but I was spending all my free time working on things for the insurance company. I was referred to Keith by someone who had used him in the past and had good results. I immediately felt better 10 minutes after walking into their office for my first consultation. He had handled cases so similar to mine and sounded reassuring and confident. It was a long road but it finally settled before trial and I am very happy with the results and to get on with my life. I would recommend Keith and his team in a heartbeat to my family and friends, they were great.
