I give Attorney Jennifer Williams the highest endorsement. I have worked with Jennifer over the years where she was the attorney on the other side both as a Commonwealth’s Attorney and in domestic matters as a private attorney. Jennifer is diligent, tenacious and skilled at what she does. She fights hard for her clients. She is also fair-minded and ethical, which is a breathe of fresh air. Carla F. Kithcart, Attorney at Law
