I grew up in the rural farming community of Manton, CA. The people in my hometown were not only economically disadvantaged, but legally disadvantaged as well. I saw the lives of those I cared about destroyed when they were unable to afford proper legal representation. As I grew to understand their struggle, I wanted to help. 

After more than 20 years working in the legal profession, I have opened my own practice here in Redding, to serve the area that I love. With the support of my wife and two daughters, I look forward to providing assistance to those in need of legal representation. 

I am a member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.

Fanominal Attorney!!!
I've worked with Sameul for just under a year with my DUI case an it finally got dismissed today! The cards were in our favor as long as you knew which order the put them down, an Sameul was way ahead of the game out the gate. He did the impossible some might say, I can't thank him enough! I would recommend him to anyone that needs a good knowledgeable Attorney that gets the job done right! Thank you Sameul Williams!!!

Very beneficial
I've hired Mr Williams twice to help me with legal issues. He knows the law. He helped me to explain my situation in a professional manor and knew where to look to gather the information I needed. He is a brilliant man. I will use him again if needed.

"I highly recommend Sam Williams. Sam worked with me at my law firm for many years. He and I also worked as co-counsel once he entered private practice. Sam has distinguished himself as a very bright, passionate advocate for the accused. He has special aptitude for science, breath test technology, computer technology and searches. He has a great interest in all things computer related. I believe that this knowledge and passion for the computers allows him to be far more effective in research and investigation than us old folks. He and I worked together on a case involving a very serious sexual accusations where our client faced the rest of his life in prison. Our client had great confidence in Mr. Williams and was always impressed by Mr. Williams enthusiasm and hard work. You would be very lucky to have Sam Williams as your lawyer."
