Amazing Family Lawyer
Jerry knows the law and nothing escapes him. He is very bright and has a lot of experience - it definitely shows during court dealings and throughout the whole process. He represented me during my highly contested divorce years back and now again after the other party reopened the case. Highly recommended!

Great experience through hard times
I felt very taken care of throughout my divorce. My many questions were answered very quickly and Williams Divorce & Family Law walked me through every step of the process.

He is the best
Jerry is my attorney since 2015. I should say I have peace of mind with my highly contested case. I wish I knew about him earlier, I wouldn't have lost all that precious money I invested in other firms.
