Worst place I ever been, they over charge you and don’t take your case seriously. I think when u look for a lawyer specially a family lawyer you spect they bear service and that what I was expecting of this mediocre firm. I though I will get the best service by looking at the videos they post and the morals and knowledge they seem to have when you go in their website. However they provide the worst service, they don’t care about anything but collecting money. Don’t waste your time going here if you looking for a lawyer that will do everything in their power to win your case , this people don’t care about nothing but money and they won’t even remember your name.

I'm very disappointed with the level of professionalism of the Williams Law Group. I was impressed with the consultation and decided to use them to represent me in my divorce. In short, they caused me more frustration than the actual divorce. My ex-wife decided to go pro se and did a better job representing herself than the Williams Law Group provided representing me. The first day in court, the attorney was 1 1/2 late with no call. I called the office several times to notify the firm there was no attorney here to represent me. Then when in front of the judge, they forgot to submit the case information statement, which in the very first document you present to the courts after the initial filing. I can go on about arbitrary charges with document collections, filings, visits, document preparations, etc., which resulted in nothing tangible to hand over to me when I decided to go pro se after spending 10k and nothing to show for it. I'm happy with my pro se results, and it caused me fewer frustrations, and less expensive. There's so much more I can say, but I'm going to end it by saying I would not recommend the Williams Law Group. Save yourself the frustration and cost. I'm glad to see others had a pleasant experience.

My experience with the Williams Law Group has been terrific. They are kind, experienced and handle all matters without much of a hassle. I highly recommend them!

This law firm is amazing! They made me feel comfortable and at home from the second I walked in the door. They are polite, professional, and ask all the necessary questions.

Professional, helpful and thorough in there work on our Wills, Living Wills and Power of Attorney.

As someone above quoted John has a 'sugar coated' verbosity. However that's where his experience as a mediator ends . We were at his highly expensive mediation where he found several ways to stretch a point and cause non needed billing hours. He got the amounts for equitable distribution all wrong and that has come to bite me, his amateurish wording of the agreement has cost me non needed support payments of around $18,000/- a year Stay away from this Company if you need mediation - You can pick someone out of law school for half the price and get a better experience

I just started my divorce with this firm after a miserable life with my soon to be ex husband and I can't recommend it enough. John is no one you will meet. He doesn't seem like a money hungry lawyer and truly cares about the well being of his clients. Mike Evans is a true professional that is a straight shooter and knows the ins and outs due to his long experience specializing with divorces. I would highly recommend this law firm to anyone getting a divorce. Their promptness and professionalism are beyond my expectations and my expectations are high!

Honest firm that does not take advantage, fought hard for me, and I was satisfied with their work. Best choice for divorce. Get a prenuptial agreement

When you're going through difficult times in life, it's important to have an attorney you can trust, someone knowledgeable, someone who clearly explains the process and how your money is spent. I am grateful to Messrs. Evans, Thomas, Jonathan and the entire NJ Divorce Team for their outstanding work during my process. Although I wish everyone happy marriage, I strongly recommend them if divorce should happen.

Everything you need when it comes to family law. Knowledgable, assertive, and experienced. I have used them not for a divorce, but to represent my interests through a prenuptial agreement. THANK YOU !
