Professional Profile:
In an era of ever-increasing specialization in law, I'm still a generalist. I handle white-collar as well as street crimes. I am willing to consult as well as actively represent defendants at both trial and appellate levels. I have been President of the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and am a Life Member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. I have served on the board of a forensic psychology organization. I taught mock-trial debate at the high-school level, volunteering for 12 years. I even ran for judge a couple of times (see williams4judge.org).

Professionally, I am interested in the evolution of our system of criminal justice. Courts need to listen to what scientists have to say about the reliability of eyewitness identification testimony, the causes of false confessions, the risks of re-offending, the need for accredited crime laboratories, and a host of other issues that contribute to injustice in our criminal courts. Police officers have to be scrupulously honest and prosecutors have to go beyond "lip-service" in seeing that justice is done. Jurors have to recognize that human beings are fallible and that error is the main source of injustice in our system
