Tyler Williams

Most of my experience over the past ten years has been in criminal defense, representing real people accused of serious crimes. These have included many high-profile cases where the government was represented by some of the best prosecutors in the State.

I also help individuals who have issues with child custody, visitation, or finalizing a difficult divorce.

In addition, as part of my practice I have worked as Executive Inhouse Counsel at a small software startup, advised foreign exchange traders on securities law, taken on insurance companies, helped filmmakers navigate issues involving copyright law, and fought a local sports team over its breach of a contract.
