Walt represented me for my divorce proceedings from 11/2015-3/2017. Before hiring an attorney for what I knew would be a very contentious process, I interviewed several over a period of 4-5 years. I ultimately chose Walt because he was the only one who I felt had truly listened to me and understood what I needed from an attorney.
The process was long, I had never been through something like this and the whole thing was confusing...it included protection orders, family services investigations and other sensitive matters. Going through all of that was very stressful. Walt was right there to answer questions, was accessible and sensitive to my feelings but also blunt when it was necessary.
The divorce went to trial, Walt was extremely prepared, focused and truly immersed himself
in my case. I never felt as if his mind was elsewhere. The outcome was very favorable and I feel that is due to Walt's preparation and focus.
On a side note, Walt's paralegal Suzette was amazing! She really helped me to stay grounded and trust my gut whenever I questioned myself during this process. Whenever I got seemingly bad news she would anticipate my phone call, remind me of the reasons I was doing this and generally helped me feel better through the process.
I have already recommended Walt to others who are looking for a family law attorney and will continue to recommend him as long as he is practicing law.

I hired Walt for my divorce case in 2013. He was a great lawyer to have on my side. He was very logical and stayed extremely fair throughout the entire process. He told me when he felt I had a case and was honest with me when he felt there wasn't any leg to stand on. Unfortunately my ex had a lawyer who would come after everything and anything. We eventually lost out to her tenacity.
If you have an ex who isn't petty and you want a realistic lawyer who knows his stuff and won't over charge you for things, Walt is your guy. If you need to go to war with your ex and they are like a bloodhound, I would recommend you look somewhere else.

From start to finish, Walter was the best person to handle my situation. I couldn't have done it w/o him. He is professional, reliable, patient, and quick to respond. His work is outstanding and was very thorough about the process. Thanks Walt!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I met Walt Williams in 2005, and ever since then I have held him in exceptionally high regard. Walt is a skilled family law practitioner, and I have turned to him for advice on several family law issues I faced in my own cases. Aside from possessing a great depth of knowledge about the law, Walt is also deeply caring, honest, and respectful, which are essential qualities in a great lawyer. Walt is easy to communicate with, easy to relate to, and a pleasure to work with. I am very comfortable referring clients to Walt because I am confident he will provide them with excellent service.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known Walt Williams for five years, and I have received assistance from him on family law matters. Walt is intelligent and hard working, but his best quality is that he really cares about people and takes the time to help them understand both the legal and non-legal issues in a case.
