Took three years to close out an estate with no taxes, no probate, one heir. Recommended a horribly dishonest trustee to me and charged the trustee tends of thousands, which was taken out of my funds, when the legal expenses had been pre-paid by the deceased. Took nine months to deed over two houses. Nothing at all at this law firm got done till I got rid of punk trustee.

Williams Mullen has access to the many disciplines that can often be important in a complex contract legal issue. The lead attorney on my case, William Bayliss, has served me well for more than thirty years. But, in all fairness, like all large firms, it is sometimes hard to reach him; and his services are very expensive. In any event, I must say that he has always been forthright with me and represented me professionally, even if the results were not always to my liking. Recommended highly.

The lawyer we met with was very professional and listened carefully to everything we had to say. Asked lots of questions for clarification. Seemed very thorough.

Answers to Pleadings and Interrogatory answers provided were not correctly stated in the proposed drafts. Had to keep correcting drafts before they would be approved to be sent to opposing counsel. Was billed for each word communicated even when they made mistakes. Dragged out litigation and don't believe they prepared me enough to make settlement decisions. Fees much too expensive for work done.
