Scott recently represented my daughter in a difficult DUI/ Hit and Run case. Not only was Scott easily reachable and communicative, he really went the extra mile to help guide her every step of the way. Through his vast experience and expertise, Scott was able to get her charges reduced from a DUI with enhanced penalties and a Hit and Run, to a standard DUI with minimal restitution and sentencing. Without Scott's efforts, the outcome would have been significantly more severe and would have taken months versus of a couple weeks to get resolved. We are extremely grateful.
I would strongly recommend Scott to anyone facing a criminal charge. He is hands down the best attorney in San Diego county.

WOW, THE TERM SUPER LAWYER IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT when MY SON GETS IN TROUBLE WHILE VISITING CALIFORNIA!!!!! Being A parent is the toughest job in the world, everyone will agree, but when your 19 year old son gets in trouble out of state, wow, what to do? I was referred to Scott Williams, and what A Great move, This guy is NO JOKE... After one 30 minute conversation on the phone, I knew I got the right guy for the Job, after hanging up the phone i immediately sent him a check and all docs and paperwork he requested...we live in new jersey and going to court in California definitely would have been very expensive and time consuming!!! So basically after that, He took on the case, we did not have to even have to travel, he was able to get case dismissed with no fines or consequences>>> This guy is the man and I highly recommend him as an attorney!! A++++++++++++
