Child Custody
Chris and his team are professional and friendly but don’t let that fool you...he hits hard in the courtroom and really fights for his clients. I am so thankful for their help and would recommend them highly if you are going through a child custody case,divorce, or have other family law needs.

If you are looking for an attorney that will be dedicated to your cause, is open to mediation and settling your case quickly and efficiently if possible, or digging down in the trenches and fighting on the front lines of need be, then I strongly suggest Mr Williams and his staff. He makes sure to listen to his client, and spend your money wisely.
