California Civil Litigation Attorney
We represent individuals and businesses as plaintiffs and defendants in accidents, business, insurance, personal injury, products liability, real estate and other civil litigation matters.

Our philosophy includes realistic counseling of clients prior to the institution of and throughout the litigation process. The litigation process commences with an investigation and evaluation of a client's claims or defenses, and an analysis of the client's rights, duties and obligations in order to effectively evaluate the case consistent with the client's expectations and goals. The process proceeds with filing and/or responding to the complaint and then conducting discovery required to properly prepare or defend the case.

Effective counseling affords clients the opportunity to make more informed decisions on whether to litigate or settle disputes during the course of the proceedings in a manner most favorable to the client. When appropriate, we pursue available alternative dispute resolution sources, such as the American Arbitration Association, J.A.M.S., and private arbitration and mediation. Frequently, even the most aggressively litigated case can be better and more economically resolved utilizing these sources.

While we believe in resolving disputes through productive negotiations rather than litigation whenever possible, we aggressively pursue our client's case through trial and post-trial proceedings, including appeal, as appropriate, in efforts to obtain the best possible result for our client.

Mr. Williams has sat as Judge Pro Tem for the Los Angeles and Ventura County Courts.
