Mr. Williams never planned on becoming a trial attorney. However, he had the opportunity to clerk for the Honorable Judge Andrew Kauffman during law school. The clerkship exposed him to a considerable number of criminal and civil jury trials and he quickly fell in love with litigation. With a new found passion, he tried out and was selected to become a member of his law school's mock trial honors program, where he stood out as an advanced advocate.
