Excellent as a victim advocate
Mr williams served us as a victims advocate. He assisted the town attorney in bringing and winning our case. He was a good listener to our side of the story and presented our case to the courts in a highly effective manner and kept us a breast of the progress of the case. Win. Lose. Or drawer we were very pleased with mr. Williams work. We would recommend him to others without reservation.

Mr. Williams' hard work and determination resulted in a positive outcome in my case. Mr. Williams is a detail driven attorney and it is that trait, as well as his knowledge and communication skills that drove the outcome of my case. Thank you Mr. Williams!

Highest Recommendation!
If you are in need of an attorney, you won't find any better than Mr. Williams. He is the total package. He is intelligent, tenacious, and highly respected by his peers. The court security person made a point to tell me how fortunate we were to have Mr. Williams as our attorney. We have retained him twice and had great results both times. He is realistic with clients, but goes the extra mile for you.

excellent attorney
I used mr. Williams about 3 years ago for a dwi infraction. All i can say is if you are looking for an attorney that will give it 100% and not just take your money this is your guy. He was able to help me out alot more then i could have ever imagined. Not the cheapest lawyer but you get what you pay for. Not a typical sussex county attorney.

Worst attorney ever ..
I do not know where to begin . Well, I hired him because of a recommendation , I wish I never listen to that person ! John Williams only cares about two things .,. Himself and money , usually lawyers get a bad rap because there shady , greedy , liars , ect ect ... Boy does he fit the bill . He never never ever returned your phone calls , only time he did or does .. When it's time to get paid . He would get pissed off when you called his cell . What kind of lawyer gets mad when you call his cell phone for advise or information , he does . Doesn't he work for you ? So I would think he can answer a phone call or return them and when He does call you back the number comes up as "unknown" really ? Blocking your number ... He did not produce results in my case , he actually made them worse . All my charges we raised DRAMATICALLY !!!! What did he do? Nothing !!! From the beginning phases to when my charges were raised . He just sat there and did nothing , did not fight for me was just an easy pay day for this guy . All he did in court was laugh with prosecutor and rub his tie . What a joke this guy is. I had to let him go in the middle of my court proceedings and hired a REAL lawyer . John Williams did not properly advise me in what to do to make my case go smoother, he didn't advise me because of he was always "away" most of the time I had his assistant Vanessa come to my court hearings and she was worse than him she was a scared little puppy dog in court . He is very unprofessional in every way , little did he know we had a mutual friend . That mutual friend told me everything he said about me .. Worse being "this guy is a stupid f@cking idiot " Real professional. Did more research on him he was let go by his previous firm for many reasons . During my whole situation I was stressed out of my mind because he did not have his best interest in my case. During my case I was detained . My parents called him , brother ,sister , aunts , uncles co workers anyone you can think of so he can assist my family and I to get me out . What did he do ... Nothing at all .. Did not returned any ones phone calls. Oh he did call me when I was released... Why ?!? Cause he needed another payment ... What a deceiving POS rat this guy is . He does not know anyone in court he is small fish in a big pond and in his mind he thinks he is Shapiro status . I wouldn't not recommend this guy to anyone , stay away !!!
