Great Mason Attorney
Did excellent work getting my license back and verifying other loose ends were tidied up and finalized for me. Only issue was working through answering service, I swear leaving a message to voice mail would be a better use of resources for him, but that just might be the services issues and not his.

Speeding and log book tickets
I hired Attorney Williams to help me reduce a driving ticket and a log book ticket that I received 8 months ago. My experience with this attorney was very grateful. He quickly responded to all of my inquiries and help us through this process. As a CDL driver, it was very important to me to get these tickets off my record or at least reduce to non moving violations and Attorney Williams was able to do that for me. I will defiantly recommend this attorney for any traffic violations.

Great Attorney!!!
I live in Virginia and while I was on vacation in Michigan, I received a ticket for fishing without a fishing license. I had no idea this was a misdemeanor. Luckily I discovered Tim Williams website and reached out to him for his help. Tim gave me great advice and handled everything for me while I was back home in VA. Whenever I contacted Tim he responded back to me right away. Whether it was by phone, email or text messages. He made me feel at ease that everything would be okay while I was miles away. Most importantly, Mr. Williams got that misdemeanor off my record. I highly recommend his services. Thank you Tim!!!

A Lawyer you can trust to work diligently on your case
Mr. Williams was very professional and on top of my case! He was very knowledgeable in the subject area and handle my case like a true professional. He was also none judgemental and treated me like a human being unlike some other attorneys I've used before.

This is my thank you note to Tim: "You called me back within 5 minutes of my initial contact.  I was scared and didn't have a plan, and it meant the world to me that you lifted some of that burden so quickly.  Throughout the case, you were patient with my many emails.  I was angry, anxious, and still frightened, but knowing you had my back made it better. Thank you!!!" I found Tim to be very easy to talk to. He's a great listener, non-judgmental, honest, and caring. He will listen until you are done talking, present your options, and help you decide on the course of action that is best for you. Integrity is one of the most important qualities of a lawyer, and Tim's is second to none. I plan to hire Tim again soon to update my will. Regardless of your legal need, Tim will have your back at every stage.

My review of Timothy Williams
Timothy has been there since the beginning of the case. He's kept me well informed on what to expect and what information he's needed to help build the case. I really have appreciated everything he's done for my family.

My Experience with Mr. Williams
My Williams is representing me in family court. First I would like to say. I am very skeptical and "pessimistic" at times. I was thinking I was not getting a fair shake in court. Well the more I see, the more I realize that Mr. Williams is doing an excellent job defending me. I would recommend Mr. Williams to anyone who is seeking a fair outcome in court. My case is still going on in court. Each court hearing I am one step closer to that fair outcome. Thank You Mr. Williams!!! Shane

I highly recommend Timothy M. Williams for providing Legal Services. Mr Williams is experienced, knowledgeable, well respected by the judges he works with, and reasonable. He takes the time to obtain an in depth knowledge of the matter requiring his representation. His communication style is open and honest, yet sensitive to the circumstances involved. His recommendations are balanced and practical. He is very prompt in replying to voice mail. In my opinion, Timothy Williams goes the extra mile to provide his clients with the best legal representation he possibly can.

Real Estate Matter
Tim handled a condominium matter for me, and went up against a very well funded opponent and one of the largest law firms in the state. Tim was always prepared, well versed on the law and made excellent presentations on my behalf. Thanks to Tim's hard word and dedication we won the case. I would highly recommend Tim as he was extremely diligent, competent and not intimidated despite us being out spent considerably. Tim did an excellent job with my limited legal budget
