He answered my call after 10:00p.m
Yes! I was making calls late night to attorney offices. I was very frustrated about how my court case was handled and was seeking guidance from an attorney on how to handle my issue on the next business day. I called Attorney Williams really thinking I would leave a voice message to get a return call back, he answered. He patiently listened to all my concerns and details. Attorney Williams was so helpful and nice in his delivery, I will be referring people to him if need be.

Great knowledge lawyer
He represented me for a case that faced a lot of unique challenges. He continued to fight and he eventually got the charges to be dismissed.

A lawyer that communicates...????... Strange
I have hired plenty of attorneys the last couple of years and they always seem helpful and and eager right up to the point they process your retainer. Andrew Williams has perfect communication through the entire process. Even after the case was dismissed. If you want a good attorney that doesn't leave you in the dark this is where you stop looking.

The best lawyer in Houston.
After many consultations, I hied Attorney Andrew J. Williams basically because he did not focus so much on the financial benefits of the case but on the win strategies and analysis. In comparison to his colleagues, he showed high sense of knowledge and desire to defend. His persona is filled with humane and hospitable character; he became a friend indeed. When my case hitted up, alternative routes to win were thrown on table. He clearly explained all of the possibilities and defined the best alternative. His advise yielded me a dismissal and a hopeful expunction. I will recommend him always!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely amazed...
I hired Mr. Williams and I came to court with out the proper documents and very unprepared. I was VERY anxious, the court room was packed to standing room only, with an additional 80 plus people standing in line in front of me. My last name starts with W and thought this would be an all day chore with a bad out come. Mr Williams put me at ease and said sit tight for a few, 10 minutes later he comes out of the court room with a smile on his face and said let's go, case dismissed. WOW! I am so amazed and very thankful!!! This is the 2nd time I have used Mr Andrew Williams and I highly recommend him.

Hire this Lawyer!
Andrew Williams recently helped me with a theft charge, he was relentless in his pursuit of a dismissal! My charge was successfully dismissed and I could not be happier with the outcome. My family and I have have been using Andrew Williams for various legal issues for over fifteen years, and we highly recommend him to everyone.

Legal Advice
I needed some legal advice and contacted lawyers all morning. I could not find someone willing to return my call. I was referred to Andrew by one lawyers secretary. Andrew answered the phone and listened to my problems and offered free advice. I was so impressed i decided to meet with him even he assured me it was not necessary. Andrew took the time to sit down with me and my wife and explain things. He was straight forward on everything. I feel forever in debt for him giving me advice when others were to busy. I would RECCOMENED Andrew to anyone looking for an honest, sincere lawyer who is there to help. 6 Stars.

Professional Quality Legal Services
The first day I contacted Andrew Williams, I had already been turned away by one attorney and another asked for a $5000 dollar retainer fee before he would offer any sort of consultation . Andrew's free consultation was educated and sincere. He advised me accordingly on how to move forward with my case on my own. Andrew's legal experience and our discussions gave me the peace of mind that someone had my best interests in hand. After it became clear that I would have to defend against a Felony charge I hired him as my legal counsel. When I was arrested Andrew was available immediately for consultation and his attention to details was impeccable in securing my timely release. Eventually we secured a NO BILL before the Grand Jury, and he is in the process of expunging my record. I was HIGHLY SATISFIED with the outcome, and if I or anyone I know ever needs any kind of Criminal Defense services Andrew Williams will be the first name from my lips. Thanks for the hard work Andrew.

Criminal lawyer
Mr. Williams was very professional. During my entire ordeal Mr. Williams informed me of all the steps that would be taken place. He was very clear and honest with questions that I had. One of the major things that made me feel comfortable during my ordeal was Mr. Williams either stayed with me or answered my phone calls immediately throughout the entire process. I hope I will never have to use him again but, if circumstances arise I will definitely use Mr. Williams. Well worth the money and I would definitely refer him to friends and family.

SUPER DEPENDABLE LAWYER
Andrew is personable and very knowledgeable with how the law is applied to cases. Andrew is not intimidated by the District Attorney or afraid to go to trial on a case. He also does not sugar coat a case and tells it like it "really" is!!! Andrew's fees are very reasonable and he will work with you. He was very successful working long and hard fighting to finally get my case dismissed!!!
