I’ve known Maureen Williams for over 5 years and met her at a Trial Lawyers College seminar on trial skills. I’ve worked on her cases and she’s worked on mine. Maureen could have taught the course we attended together and was very impressive. She is an outstanding advocate for her clients. Maureen achieves great results in court because she has such a strong commitment to her clients, and takes the time to really prepare and learn their stories. She really cares about the people she represents and I would not hesitate to send a friend or family member to her for representation.
