Attorney Josh Williams
I’m Josh Williams, and I founded this firm.
I take pride in spending the time, energy, and resources necessary to advocate for my clients because I understand that your case matters. I have never been able to stand down and allow someone to suffer harm. I have to go in and help. This is my way, and it is the main reason why I do this work.
I began my legal career as a litigation attorney at one of the largest law firms in Minnesota, and in 2009 I started this firm to help people who were harmed by others.
Advocating for people who suffered human rights injuries such as discrimination, wage theft, and excessive force has always been a focus of my practice. After our firm relocated to our current office on the Midtown Greenway in Minneapolis and I became a regular bicycle commuter, I expanded the scope of my focus to help fellow cyclists and other vulnerable roadway users who suffered injuries.
In our first 10 years we have tried and won significant jury trials, including winning a rare class action jury verdict; obtained numerous substantial settlements; and prevailed in groundbreaking state, federal, and arbitration cases that set new standards in the law.
In one such case where I had the privilege of helping three incredibly brave young women prevail against a powerful adversary, Minnesota Lawyer honored me as an Attorney of the Year.
In another case, I had the privilege of representing a veteran firefighter in front of the Minnesota Supreme Court and overturned discriminatory precedent that had stood for 30 years. We were forced to go to trial, where we won and the jury allowed my client to recover an amount that represents a full vindication of his rights.
I understand that when people reach out to me who have suffered an injury—be it a physical, economic, or human one—they are looking to me to help repair the harm and get their lives back on track. I also understand that the legal process is foreign terrain to most people, which is why I make sure to keep my clients fully informed about the applicable law, the legal process, and the available options.
I am honored to have successfully helped hundreds of people who were harmed, and I am fortunate to have recovered millions of dollars for our clients through settlements and trials to fairly compensate them for their harms and losses.
Thank you for considering working with my firm.
