Reed G. Williams
WE WILL FIGHT TO PROTECT YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS UNDER THE LAW.
Experienced and Efficient
I was born on September 29, 1953 in Rochester, N.Y. I attended the University of Rochester, graduating in 1976 with a B.A. in psychology. Thereafter, I attended the Gonzaga University School of Law, graduating in 1980. I was admitted to practice in New York state on February 18, 1981, and was admitted to the United States District Court (Western District of New York) and Bankruptcy Court (Western District of New York) also in 1981.
I initially joined a large law firm in Rochester, N.Y. and worked there for several years before entering into a partnership with my late father, Mitchell T. Williams, as Williams & Williams.

Throughout the time of my practice in New York, I represented a wide variety of clients: private, corporate and governmental. Representative clients include insurance companies, banks, Freddie Mac and the Ithaca Gun Company. In the late 1980s, I decided to move to Asheville, N.C., and did so in 1991, after having been admitted to the North Carolina State Bar in November of 1991. I was also admitted to practice in the United States District Court (Western District of North Carolina.) Upon moving to Asheville, N.C., I first worked for Russell & King, a highly regarded insurance defense firm, which handled civil litigation defense and the defense of workers’ compensation employers and insurance carriers. I left that firm to represent plaintiffs in civil litigation and workers’ compensation cases, and joined the firm of Elmore, Elmore & Williams, until I left that firm in 2005 to form my current firm, Williams & Mills, PLLC.
Throughout my career, until 2003, I also did criminal work in state and federal courts, both in New York and North Carolina. I decided in 2003 to concentrate solely on workers’ compensation matters and civil litigation involving vehicular negligence (car, truck and motorcycle accidents,) and other types of personal injuries. I remain admitted to the New York State Bar.
