Welcome to Williams Parker
We take great pride in our long-standing history in the community. The firm was founded in 1925 by J.J. Williams, Jr., who stressed the importance of commitment to clients, service to community, and devotion to excellence in the practice of law–guiding principles that have defined our firm for more than 90 years. He understood that the attorney-client relationship is both personal and professional. Adhering to his philosophy, we are dedicated to representing and advising our clients on legal matters with careful consideration for their individual concerns.
Williams Parker exists to help our clients implement their visions for their businesses and their families. Our clients appreciate our attentiveness, discretion, and judgment. We practice in the legal disciplines that align with our client base. In those disciplines, we have built national-caliber capabilities, offering one of Florida’s largest trusts and estates practices; tax and employment practices with significant depth; and accomplished real estate, litigation, and corporate practices.
We are hard-working, fair-minded, and community-centered attorneys and professionals who support and collaborate with one another. Many of our practitioners have at least one advanced degree in taxation, accounting, or business, and many of our attorneys are certified as specialists by The Florida Bar. Our attorneys and staff include native Floridians as well as “transplants.” Every one of us lives and works here because the quality of life in our region is second to none.
We are proud of the central roles we have played forging some of the area’s most enduring and iconic institutions and leading organizations. Our attorneys are actively involved in our area’s business, charitable, and civic affairs. Our volunteerism generates long-term prosperity for the area, and we are delighted to call Sarasota home.
