Our Firm



Our Beliefs

Since 2001, the law firm of Williams & Williams Attorneys and Counselors at Law, P.L.L.C. has been representing people who have been charged with criminal offenses or injured in accidents. Our firm is dedicated to getting the best results for our clients. We pride ourselves on having earned a reputation for being staunch and zealous advocates for our clients. We are a small firm that is focused on obtaining big results.

Because we are a small law firm, at Williams & Williams you will be able to develop a close working relationship with an attorney. On most occasions you will be able to speak to and work directly with an attorney as opposed to an administrative assistant, legal assistant or a paralegal. We do our best to respond to your inquiries within a 24 hour time period. At Williams & Williams, we believe that each case that we accept is worthy of special attention. We will not hesitate to commit the time and effort necessary to get the results that our clients deserve. Our firm is concerned about our clients, committed to our clients, and compassionate towards our clients.


Our History
Williams & Williams Attorneys and Counselors at Law, P.L.L.C. opened its doors on January 8, 2001. Our firm is the successor to the solo practice firm previously operated by Lisa Anderson Williams from 1998 until 2000. Our firm was originally located at 109 West Parrish Street, Suite 201 in downtown Durham, North Carolina. Since the beginning, we have represented people who have been charged with crimes and people who have been injured in accidents. We are extremely grateful to all of the volunteer attorneys, legal assistants, administrative support personnel, and general volunteers who have contributed greatly to the growth and progress of our firm. All of these individuals have gone on to fulfill great accomplishments in many areas. We are and will always be very proud of each and every one of them.

Our firm’s main office is located at 5318 Highgate Drive Suite 233, which is a part of the Highgate Centre office park complex in Durham, North Carolina. We are located near the intersection of Highway 54 and Fayetteville Road. Our office is approximately three miles from Southpoint Mall. We have been at the Highgate Centre since April of 2013. In September of 2017, we began serving clients at our satellite location at 8480 Honeycutt Road, Suite 200 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
