    I had an excellent experience with Ms. Williams who was a settlement conference judge in a divorce case in which I was representing one of the parties. The other party was representing herself. Ms. Williams did an excellent job in settling this case given that the two parties were so far apart at the beginning of the settlement conference. She was patient with the wife who was representing herself, while being firm with her when she refused to accept what the law was. I was impressed with her knowledge of the law and her ability to convey it to the unrepresented party, as well as her kind and courteous manner with my client. I would recommend Ms. Williams either for a family law matter or as a mediator in a family law case. Her hard work saved my client the cost of a trial and brought closure for these two people.
