Our History

In 1993, in recognition of the changing environment in the area of insurance defense, Roger H. Williams formed this law firm and practiced initially in Hudson, Ohio. Roger Williams brought with him nearly 15 years of jury trial and appellate experience and excellent rapport with clients, lawyers and judges alike.

The purpose of the founding of the firm was to provide efficient and quality representation to individuals, businesses and insurance carriers throughout the region and the nation. Our attorneys routinely travel throughout the State of Ohio, having access to the Ohio Turnpike, Interstate 480 and all other major interstates connecting cities across Northern Ohio.

In 2011, Roger Williams expanded the litigation practice to Westerville, Ohio to accommodate clients with litigation in Central and Southern Ohio—expanding the law firm’s practice to include all 88 counties of Ohio.
