We investigate and evaluate cases rapidly and accurately. We attempt to resolve cases on a fair and equitable basis, as soon as possible, with minimal expense to our clients. We are not just litigators, but truly trial lawyers. If a fair and equitable settlement cannot be reached, we are ready, willing and able to take a matter to trial.

Our History

In 1993, in recognition of the changing environment in the area of insurance defense, Roger H. Williams formed a law firm and practiced initially in Hudson, Ohio. Roger brought nearly 15 years of jury trial and appellate experience as well as an excellent rapport with clients, lawyers and judges. 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. Roger will be retiring at the end of 2020.

William F. Scully Jr. joined the firm as a partner in 1998 bringing with him over 24 years of legal experience. He is now retired. In 2001, Lou Moliterno was promoted to Partner and honed his practice with jury trials, appellate arguments and client education seminars. Kelly Grigsby Jones was promoted to Partner in 2005 and continues to contribute her experience in jury trials, legal education seminars and appellate matters.

In 2011, WMS 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. Kelly relocated to the Westerville office. In 2019, Walter Kronghold joined the firm as a partner bringing decades of commercial and insurance defense litigation experience. The firm rounds out its practice with the talents of Ian Luschin, Christina Williams and Josephine Prokop.
