While Patrick's jury trial experience ranges from personal injury defense to alienation of affections actions, he's developed a passion for domestic violence, equitable distribution and spousal support cases.

Mr. Williams received his Juris Doctor from the Norman Adrian Wiggins School of Law at Campbell University in 2005. While attending Campbell, Mr. Williams was a member of the American Trial Lawyers Association trial team for two years, and was a regional semifinalist. He also served as a Notes and Comments Editor for the Campbell Law Review. Mr. Williams assisted in the revision of prominent North Carolina treatises, such as Wiggins Administration of Wills and Estates and Webster's Real Estate Law in North Carolina. Upon graduation, J. Patrick Williams was inducted into the Order of the Barristers and was recognized by "Who's Who Among American Law Students."

Mr. Williams has litigated a wide variety of cases over his career including representing plaintiffs and insurance companies in personal injury claims, divorce, custody, and equitable distribution hearings, real estate disputes, alienation of affection actions, and appellate actions.
