In 2012, Williams said he would be "very interested" in being appointed as a judge of the High Court of Australia. News magazine Crikey reported that Williams had published a favourable opinion piece commending then Attorney-General Nicola Roxon, who would later that year need to recommend appointment of a new High Court judge. In 2013 he was elected a fellow of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia.
Welcome to Williams Lawyers, Coorparoo.
At no time does this website give, or purport to give, legal advice to you. Nor will any email, request for information or subsequent telephone call establish a solicitor-client relationship. No act, or inactivity, should be undertaken solely from the material on this site.
Unlike many law firms where criminal law is just one of a number of areas of law that services are provided for, my sole focus is on representing persons charged with criminal and traffic law offences. In a career spanning well into its second decade practising exclusively in criminal and traffic law, I am well equipped to handle the complex issues that can arise during the court process. I have represented clients at defended trials and sentencing hearings in superior courts on countless occasions. And I have a strong and ongoing professional relationship with Perth’s most prominent barristers.

Traffic Law in Western Australia is strengthening up and becoming increasingly strict on road users across the state. The laws on road safety and traffic are becoming more complex and can lead to difficult and complicated legal issues arising. The penalties for traffic offences can include tough fines, the cancellation or suspension of your license, and even imprisonment in serious cases such as aggravated reckless driving and failing to stop. Engaging an experienced Traffic Lawyer to act on your behalf is vital if you’re seeking professional advice and representation in defending traffic charges, negotiating with the prosecution, or in presenting to the court a plea in mitigation. Legal counsel presenting a plea in mitigation to the court on a guilty plea often involves submissions being made in an effort to encourage the Magistrate to impose the minimum license suspension period and fine and not to impose a suspension or fine which exceeds the minimum penalties.
