Q&A with Attorney Kevin Williams
Why did you choose to focus your practice in Probate and Guardianship law?
I decided to focus on these two areas of the law because I enjoy helping families. I believe families are important, and I want to be able to alleviate some of the stress that inevitably comes when a family member passes away or has mental capacity issues.
What makes you unique as an Attorney?
While many attorneys intentionally work to create a certain “untouchable” image, I strive to be open and upfront with my clients. Whether it is with emails, letters, phone calls, or in-person meetings, I want my clients to know that I care about them as people, not as just another case at my firm. Because of this, I have been able to develop great working relationships with my clients over the years, even when handling the more complex probate and guardianship issues.
What do you enjoy most about practicing law?
I truly enjoy counseling clients and helping them to understand complex issues in simpler terms. Probate and guardianship can become very complicated, and I like to be able to eliminate a lot of the mystery by keeping my clients informed and educated.
How many Probate and Guardianship cases have you handled in your career?
I have had the privilege to handle literally hundreds of probate and guardianship cases over the past several years. While most attorneys will only handle a handful of probate matters in their entire careers, I have been able to become much more experienced in these areas because of my concentrated focus.
