Frank B. Williams (1945-2019)

Of Counsel

Frank Williams

Our firm lost one of its finest members on January 3, 2019. Judge Frank B. Williams joined our firm in 2000 after an outstanding career serving 25 years on the bench. First a Saratoga County Court Judge, he was later elected to serve as a Supreme Court Judge, a position he held for 18 years covering the 11 counties of the 4th Judicial District. He served the citizens each and every day the same as the day before; with dignity, thoughtfulness and reason. He was a jurist in the fashion that all judges should aspire to become. He was one of the kindest, most effective judges our attorneys have had the privilege to appear and try cases before. You always knew that your client would leave his court, regardless of the outcome, with a sense that their matter was handled with the respect and dignity it deserved. His value to the firm has been incalculable. It was a gift when he joined the firm. He has been a mentor to all of us. He will be sorely missed.
