Our Clients' Experience
Clients We Have Defended Successfully
Dedication, Support, Ethic, Knowledge, Experience, Sharp and Direct. All the qualities your are looking for in a lawyer, they have it all and some. But JILLIAN WILLIAMSON was my guardian angel. Being a Client, I was comfortable to blindly leave my fate in their hands. That was a real well placed investment in the future of my life. I second, promote, referred and all the synonym possible to anybody facing an up hill battle and needs the support and experience to help you go through it.
As a family member of an accused person I can tell you that it's no fun to be there when your loved one is taken into custody by the police. My husband had the misfortune of being charged with some whit collar crimes for which we asked Williamson to represent him. I was thrilled with her communication since family members are often left in the Dark as to what's going on. She followed up with me to keep me assured that things were going to be just fine. She assisted in getting my husband released on a couple occasions and then she defended him on the charges he was facing. In the end he was found innocent thanks to Attorney Williamson's experience with the criminal justice system. If you're in need a lawyer for a family member who's gotten into trouble, I highly recommend Jillian Williamson without reservation.
Jim Lutz and his firm did an extensive amount of work for our family to ensure the best outcome! Mr. Lutz is respectable, meticulous and highly regarded by the Judicial system. I highly recommend his services as our family was honoured to have a qualified individual to represent our family.
