Andrew M. Williams is board certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is rated AV, the highest possible, by Martindale-Hubbell. He has tried cases as first-chair counsel at all levels of courts in the state of Texas from justice of the peace to federal district. His extensive trial experience includes insurance defense, professional liability defense, commercial litigation, employment law, personal injury, and probate litigation.
Mr. Williams worked with The Associated Press from 1981 until 1985, then went to work for The Houston Post, for which he covered the criminal courthouse. Inspired by watching trials every day, he enrolled at The University of Texas law school, from which he graduated in May 1989.
Mr. Williams attended Texas A&M University on a National Merit Scholarship. He graduated in 1980 with a double major in Journalism and English. He was managing editor of The Battalion, the student newspaper. He won the Senior Merit Award in Print Journalism, awarded each year to the top graduate of that program. He has been a Silver Century Club member for many years.
No one is perfect. While at Texas A&M, Mr. Williams advised a friend and fellow journalism student that he should not try to make a career of music, because no matter how good he was, he would never succeed in the field. The recipient of that advice is named Lyle Lovett. (Mr. Williams has since stopped offering career counseling.)
