Welcome to Williams DeLoatche

We help individuals who have been hurt in an accident get the justice and compensation they deserve. We believe that everyone should be given respect and compassion and we strive to achieve the best possible outcome for every client. There is no shame in seeking compensation for your medical bills as well as for pain and suffering. You pay insurance premiums for a reason, and you are entitled to collect in the event of an accident.

Williams DeLoatche, P.C. was founded in July of 2008 by attorneys T. Wayne Williams and Jonathan R. DeLoatche.

We have years of experience handling civil litigation from both the plaintiff’s and defendant’s perspectives, which gives our firm a unique set of skills to meet our clients’ needs. We specialize in personal injury law – matters involving individuals injured in motor vehicle accidents, premises liability incidents, dog bites, pedestrian accidents, wrongful deaths and nursing home abuse, among others. We also handle traffic matters in all local jurisdictions. We also represent juveniles in the event of an incapacitated family member.

Unlike larger firms, we provide personalized attention to all of our clients, and our attorneys are involved in all facets of your case. Contact us today to discuss your case and determine the steps needed to move forward. We look forward to serving and working with you.
