“ What Clients Say “
5 Stars

By the time I retained Mr. Williams the case had already gone to trial, and I thought I had lost. He was successful at having the fees reduced by approximately $180,000!

5 Stars

I contacted Peter Williams the week discovery was due and three weeks before the trial. Within days he negotiated an agreement to participate in a settlement conference and to vacate the current dates for discovery and trial. Highly recommend this attorney if you are going anywhere near a courtroom.

5 Stars

I spoke with Peter Williams and he was very helpful in his guidance and advice. His consultation was nearly 30 minutes and was gracious, understanding, and empathetic. Good listener, gave me time to explain my entire situation before he commented. Great guy, I would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney who has experience and still cares about practicing law and justice vs. strictly making money.
