Go to court with lawyers who’ve been there.

Abraham Lincoln said lawyers should “discourage litigation.”  It’s still good advice, but sometimes litigation is unavoidable.  We won’t tell you we can make your case easy or quick because that wouldn’t be true.  But we can make the process better.  We’re practical and efficient, and always focused on getting the best result for our client.

Our clients say we’re “formidable,” “hard working,” “exceptionally smart” and “cut-to-the-chase kind of lawyers.”  With thirty years of experience representing public companies, small businesses and individuals, both plaintiffs and defendants, we know there is no substitute for determination and hard work.  That’s why our clients also say, “no one will out lawyer” us.

John Williamson is exceptionally smart, hard-working and talented. No one will out lawyer John as he has that rare combination of big law experience at the highest level, real trial experience and an exceptional strategic mind. His ability to connect to clients and juries makes him a formidable adversary. And his Southern charm is not only the perfect complement to his determination, it is who he is.

I have known Chris York for 25 years - ever since he and his law partner, John Williamson, schooled my old boss in the law.  That’s why I hired them when I became a General Counsel.  Chris is a common sense, cut-to-the-chase kind of lawyer, though always professional and respectful of others.  He is trustworthy and principled, with sound judgment, and has broad legal knowledge and experience in complex business transactions and litigation.  I highly recommend Williamson+York.

In a community of excellent lawyers, John Williamson is one of the best. John is exceptionally intelligent, with superior analytical and writing skills. He specializes in complex commercial litigation matters, often involving multiple parties, claims and counterclaims. I know of no other lawyer who can rival his skill set.
