Mickey Williams saved my life
To say that Mickey Williams saved my life is more than an understatement. In fact, he not only saved my life multiple times, but also provided me with the framework and motivation to continue moving my life in a positive direction.
I was accused of several allegations of sexual assault and abusive sexual contact by two different women. The effects of these allegations were tremendous. Multiple mentors, friends and family members turned away from me. I was once a premier and top tier member of my organization, and after the allegations day-to-day life felt like exile. It was a mental, physical and emotional battle. Trying to clear my name, move ahead and find a future within or without my organization became seemingly impossible. I provided the truth. I provided transparency. However, nobody believed me.
The phrase “innocent until proven guilty” felt like a myth or an idea so esoteric that only a small few could attain it. I was not one of the chosen few.
My future was in jeopardy. It appeared that no one cared about my case as much as I did. I believed that no one would invest as much effort as I would. That changed when I hired Mickey Williams.
Mickey did not hesitate to take command of the situation. His expertise, guidance and drive paved the way for my side of the story to be heard and understood.
Mickey took a team effort and made it his own. Whenever someone would not assist he maintained a calm, unquestionable resolve to get things done: to get results.
He spent countless hours interviewing witnesses, gathering evidence, and arguing my case to the Government before it went to trial. Miraculously, after nearly two years of thinking my life would end, Mickey Williams got my case not dismissed once, but twice. As I saw my freedom and life returning, the allegations were then reinstated as administrative punishment with the grounds of getting me removed from the organization. Mickey assured me that these were merely embers that he would have no problem putting out.
Having already earned my trust and admiration, Mickey continued to work with the same resolve and drive as he did prior. Mickey never got complacent and never thought “good enough”. Mickey was hell bent on proving my innocence, getting my life back and ensuring that my organization retained me so that I could continue my career.
In the final hour, when many would quit due to facing a case that seemed to have not chance at winning, Mickey operated full of energy and dispatch. Mickey proved he knew the case inside and out. He had prepared what seemed to be an encyclopedia of evidence to support my case and disprove the Government’s case.
He spent several hours preparing me by placing me in response scenarios so I would be completely ready for whatever the Government planned to throw at me.When it came time to go to the hearing, Mickey ensured that I was ready but more importantly he restored my faith and my confidence.
When the hearing started, it was clear that Mickey Williams was a cut above the rest. The difference of skill was akin to a master in contest against a new pupil. His litigation, communication and persuasion skills dismantled the Government’s case in the opening statements. The following moments were even more surreal. For every point that the Government’s prosecutor had, Mickey had at least 2-3 counterarguments, that were more sound, logical and feasible.
The prosecutor looked foolish, inexperienced and lost throughout the entire board. My life was saved at the Court-Martial and my career at the separation board because I had someone else who was not afraid to fight.
If you are thinking about hiring a military lawyer, hire Mickey Williams. He wins.
