Monté Williams often tells clients, "I'm here to help eliminate your worry." Monté puts all his skills to work to protect his clients, whether he's defending them at trial, managing litigation, negotiating settlements, conducting investigations, or partnering with them to find ways to avoid future problems. His experience as a former West Virginia State Trooper means he can investigate and evaluate situations quickly and strategically. Additionally, his law enforcement training allows him to remain calm and focused in high-stress situations.
