Williams has been recognized by Thomson Reuters, published annually in Philadelphia magazine, as a 2013 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers. Partner Jessica A. Pritchard and Associate Elizabeth J. Fineman were named 2013 Pennsylvania Rising Stars.

Listed by Pennsylvania Super Lawyers since 2005, Williams focuses on complicated divorce and child support cases, high-income spousal support and alimony issues, and high-conflict custody cases. U.S. News and World Report named him among the Best Lawyers in America®, and is often cited as one of Pennsylvania’s top family law attorneys and one of Bucks County’s leading divorce lawyers. He is the county’s only Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and one of only 100 lawyers in the nation in the American College of Family Trial Lawyers. As Chair of the Pennsylvania Bar Association Family Law Section, Williams helped improve and implement new child custody laws in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

A Rising Star since 2006, Pritchard negotiates and litigates domestic relations cases, including divorce, child custody, child support, alimony/spousal support, equitable distribution, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. In November 2012, Pritchard was named to the first-ever Bucks County Forty Under 40, which celebrates young executives who have consistently demonstrated leadership and who have made a significant contribution to the community through public service.

A newly named Rising Star, Fineman focuses her practice on domestic relations and represents clients in cases that involve divorce, child support, alimony/spousal support, marital taxation and equitable distribution.

In addition, she handled several appellate court matters representing her clients’ interests in the Superior Court of Pennsylvania.

Bar associations and courts across the United States have recognized the legitimacy of the Super Lawyers' selection process. In fact, in a recent New Jersey Supreme Court ruling, the court stated, “[The Super Lawyers selection process] is a comprehensive, good-faith and detailed attempt to produce a list of lawyers that have attained high peer recognition, meet ethical standards, and have demonstrated some degree of achievement in their field."

Pennsylvania Super Lawyers is a record of outstanding lawyers who, through a meticulous peer review and independent research process, have been identified as attaining a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. Only the top 5 percent of Pennsylvania lawyers and the top 2.5 percent of up-and-coming Pennsylvania lawyers appear on the credible, comprehensive and diverse Super Lawyers and Rising Stars lists.
