The Practice

About the Practice

My practice focuses on many areas affecting the interests of individuals and small businesses. I take pride in my ability to adjust the strategy and advocacy style to each area of practice with a common thread of zeal, creativity, and commitment to each client’s individual needs.

About Ian Williams
Criminal Defense


Creative, zealous advocacy inside and outside the courtroom.

Family Law


Aggressive advocacy, tempered with sensitivity and compassion.

Civil Litigation


Seeking justice through proper compensation.

In addition to the above, I also have strong experience in:


My extensive appellate practice allows me to extend my ability to protect clients facing criminal charges, family law challenges and general civil litigation matters beyond the trial court. I have participated in more than 150 appeals in the District of Columbia and Maryland involving Constitutional rights, criminal defense concerns, property rights, civil fraud and child custody matters.


Basic business formation and professional licensing is an important area of practice. The District of Columbia government often presents formidable barriers for individuals seeking the opportunity to do business in the District of Columbia. I have helped many small businesses incorporate and obtain professional licenses and become self-sustaining as ongoing, successful business operations navigating the various tax, corporate and license filing requirements.
