Jacob Williams

Jacob is the family law paralegal within our office. He provides legal support with compassion, patience and a diligent work ethic that is easily noticed and appreciated by the Firm and our clients. Mr. Williams graduated from Limestone College with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice.  He continued his education at Midlands Technical College and completed the American Bar Association approved Paralegal Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in 2016. His interest, specifically in the family law practice, comes from personal experience. As a son of a pastor, he has witnessed his father counseling parishioners who have gone through divorce and custody battles. This has allowed him to see just how important each step of the legal process is and having a caring support system during these stressful times. In his spare time he enjoys cooking, playing piano, a big Clemson football fan and playing tennis.
