Law Firm of the Week: Williams Family Law


Firm Details:

  1. Firm Name & Slogan: Williams Family Law – You are ready to adopt • I am ready to help
  2. Location: Topeka, Kansas
  3. What does your firm do? Williams Family Law Practice is a boutique family law firm located in the heart of Topeka’s College Hill neighborhood that is dedicated to adoption and adoption related matters. I represent both birth families and adoptive families on their adoption journey.

The Story:

  1. How did the firm start and how did it grow? I chose to focus my practice on adoption because I have a personal connection, having been adopted myself as an infant, and am now in a place to give back some of what has been given to me. As an adult I can look back and see all of the opportunities afforded me by my parents and can only hope to help others create the same love-filled life for themselves.In the time since opening the firm I have worked in many areas of adoption. These include: Adult Adoption, Adoption from Foster Care, Step Parent Adoption, Relative Adoption, and LGBT/Second Parent Adoption. I have also added Guardianships to my areas of practice as many times this helps a family provide security and permanency for a child.Most recently, I’ve been working more with assisting birth parents in their preparation of a birth plan for the child they intend to place for adoption without the assistance of an agency. Many expectant parents choose a private adoption in order to have control of their adoption plan and to consider families across the country. Having their own lawyer helps ensure their rights are protected.
  2. How did you do things before PracticePanther and how has PracticePanther helped today? Originally I used DropBox to organize my client information and files. This was not idea, as security is always an issue. I moved on to a different practice management software but found that the integration aspect was lacking. PracticePanther provides the security and integration that makes things move along smoothly.
  3. What is your favorite thing about PracticePanther? I like being able to automate my documents. I’ve just started uploading all of my regularly used documents for ease of use.
  4. What is one piece of advice you would offer other lawyers in your industry? I would advise that any firm, no matter the size, try this software out.
