Excellent lawyer.
I hired Mr Webster for my divorce and custody case. He did everything he said he could during the consultation and more. He responded to all communications promptly as well as professionally. I found Mr Webster exceptionally knowledgeable and had no issues trusting his judgment. He got results. I would not only recommend him to other people I'd also happily rehire him if need be.

Hire William Webster Jr.
I hired Bill to do my divorce. From our first meeting, I went from being panicked and concerned to calmed and reassured. Bill walked me through every step of the process, his follow up and response time is second to none, and he and his office made sure I had ever copy of every document I would need without me ever having to request them. The one thing that stood out to me was Bill's competency. When asked a question, he never hesitated with an answer, I never heard "I'll need to look into that," it was clear that he knew what he was doing and that he genuinely was invested in you as a client and wanted the positive outcome as much as you did. There are a lot of reasons people need an attorney, but when it's as personal as a divorce, I can't imagine there being many better than Bill. I truly hope that in my lifetime I never need to hire an attorney for anything else, but one thing is for certain, he will be my first call if I do.

Social security
Mr. Webster helped me with my disability case. He made the process relatively simple. He was always available to answer questions. A Social Security Disability Claim can be a long process so I would advise to have an attorney that specializes in this area. I would highly recommend Mr. Webster.

Divorce case
Bill was hired to represent me for spousal support in my divorce. He did more than I asked, getting me. 62% of our Roth IRA's, instead of support, knowing that my ex was in jail, and unable to pay anything. He answered all of my questions and helped me to understand the process I needed to go through. Great guy!
