Nathan S. J. Williams

I began my undergraduate career working toward a degree in social work. I liked the idea of being able to work with and help others. However, I also recognized that I wanted to be able to do that in a way that allowed me some creativity and independence in the manner that I was able to help. Upon graduation, I had the opportunity to work with individuals who had disabilities. This enjoyable work confirmed my desire to pursue a career in law as a means to serving others.

My areas of practice include estate and personal planning, estate and trust administration, guardianships, probate litigation, charities, business organizations, general litigation, and taxation. I came to work in these particular areas because I truly enjoy the role of attorney as a counselor, helping clients meet their goals and personal objectives. I often work with individuals or families where there is a special need or disability, putting to use my education and experience.

When not practicing law, I am usually hanging out with my wife, Amanda, and playing with our two beautiful daughters, Hannah and Bethany, or our tornado of a son, Sam.
