Daniel Williams is one of the most empathetic persons I have ever met. I have gone through several different attorneys before Mr. Williams took my case.
Divorce and child custody issues have taken over my life until MR. Williams took control of my case and advanced my cause.
I had made many mistakes in the past and have owned up to them. They had plagued my case for two years and my former attorneys kept telling me I had to live with the consequences of what I had done. I was not alone though, my ex had made the same mistakes as myself, only he was smart enough to fly under the radar.
Mr. Williams took the approach of finally getting the court to move forward, rather than looking in the rear view mirror. I finally have solace in my life and have a better relationship with my daughter than I have ever imagined I could have. I even am able to effectively co-parent with my ex, all because Mr. Williams taught me to put the emotion aside and realize that it was not about how much I or my ex get to see our daughter, but how much our daughter gets to see us. Looking at it that way changed my life and he kept telling me thats what it was about and he was right.
I can not thank him enough for turning my life around and getting my daughter back.

Mr. Williams was not a good lawyer for me you did not follow through with any thing I did all the paperwork myself he appear for me one time for a 15 minute hearing and charge me $500 for responding to my emails. Then to top it all off after I had told him to stop working on my case because my husband and I were talking he up and moved out of the area taking the rest of my retainer and not contacting me at all when I finally found him he said that he was to me the bill of what was left of my retainer which is BS because I told him to stop Working on my case

Dan was great. My case was very complex and I had interviewed several attorneys who thought I had no chance of prevailing with a pending criminal complaint and restraining order. Kudos to my public defender who got the charges dismissed and kudos to mr williams who defeated the restraining order. After a year of back and forth mediations, a custody evaluation, and then a trial on the recommendations of the custody evaluator, I have primary physical custody of my children and receive child and spousal support. Wasnt much on the property division as we didnt have much, but Dan really fought for me when nobody else believed me. I would recommend him to anbydy.

I hired Mr. Williams back in may of 2015. He started off nice and was telling me he believes in my case. He says i have a good case that can get me majority shared legal and physical custody. He knew i was down on funds and was having a hardship. He agreed to doing a $500 dollars down and pay $500 a month as part of our agreement. At first he did his part. Got ride of the restraining order, but then started one day he didnt inform me that i had child support court. Lucky for me he was there for another case. However, i wasnt. He said i was served. They sent him the documents and he never informed me. I spent a whole week calling and emailing him. No response. Finally he said yes you are now going to pay child support. He almost missed another court date. I had to call my ex to find out about my court date and that was to verify that we had another child support court date to see if im the father. After paying him $500 dollars as agreed. He shows up to the court a few days later with me. Back to child custody. Agreed with the custody evaluation without consulting me. Then a few days latter i get a letter in the mail saying he is no longer going to represent me. Thwn he tries to use his child as an excuse about his son having surgery. But for $6,000 dollars he is willing to go to trial. So what did he really do. Not much. He charged me for the same thing a paralegal could had done for the fraction of the price. In the end the results are i dont have a lawyer to represent me in trial and fight my case. Oh yes and he made so much money and left me to handle my own case and now i am having a harder time finding a new lawyer. So your bests choice is not to hire Mr. Williams. Im guessing he will do all he can if he can get money out of your pockets.

My case began as a nightmare when my ex filed a false CPS report on me and I wasnt able to see my own kids for six months under the representation of another attorney. Once Daniel came aboard things changed for the better. Today I have sole legal and sole physical custody of my children and my ex has supervised visits at the Salinas Family Services Center.

I can not say enough about this man. Not only is he highly versed in the law and an excellent advocate, but he is a counselor not only at law, but in terms of settling my nerves through the hardest period of my life. Definitely a man who is in it to help people, not just treat you as another case. I interviewed over 5 lawyers and I knew from the start I had made the right decision.

Dan is a first class man; results that count. He will give you straight forward counsel, and even tell you things that other counselors will not. He does not play hide the ball and is an unparalleled advocate to have on your side. I would refer and do refer anybody who needs a family law attorney to him. Nobody gets everything they want in these cases, but Dan gets you exactly what he predicts the court will rule and he tells you what to expect from day one. He is very patient and takes the time to go over the pleadings and judicial council forms with you and answers questions regardless of how many times you may ask as I did, often from my own need to get reassurance.

I was spinning my wheels with another attorney in town. The bills piled up, but we weren't getting anywhere. I called Daniel and he was honest and up front about the cost and possible outcome. He stayed on top of my case keeping me updated and informed at all times, and he put forth tremendous effort which ultimately led to more time with my child, a much better defined visitation schedule that alleviated unnecessary bickering with my ex-spouse and we restored balance by presenting evidence and argument that cleared my name and put things back in perspective for the courts.
I can't wait to move back to town so Dan and I can get back in the fight!
Daniel is professional, honest and understanding.
If you are looking for an attorney that will work hard for you, definitely give Daniel a call.
Do not waste time and money anywhere else. Trust me.

Wanted to express my utmost gratitude for your patience and diligence in assisting me with my custody, support, and restraining order. I was at a total loss when I first entered the legal fray and without your patience and diligence, I would be even more lost. I have my life back, I have my daughter protected, and am so happy with the result. You are one of a kind. David P.

Im glad I found Mr. Williams on AVVO. He was a true professional and gave me the individual attention my previous attorney did not.
