Thomas E. Williams, Q.C.
“Your injury is no fault of your own, so I'll take a hard-line approach with the ones accountable. With me, you'll never be left vulnerable and my attention to your case will be relentless. I'll put pressure on the ones responsible and fight anyone intent on pushing you into a decision that doesn't best suit your needs.”
