Today we’d like to introduce you to Bridgette Williams.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Bridgette. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I was born and raised in Bessemer, Alabama. I completed my undergraduate degree in English at Tuskegee University and my law degree at Texas Southern University– Thurgood Marshall School of Law.
After graduating from law school, I worked as an assistant district attorney who prosecuted various criminal cases. These matters mainly included driving while intoxicated, family assault, and several drug cases. It was a great opportunity for me to gain weekly trial experience, work closely with the public and have a front row seat to the various issues plaguing not only the criminal justice system but the entire legal field.
I quickly realized I wanted to be an attorney who played a more active role in helping individuals by avidly fighting against injustice, corruption, and negligent actions. So, in 2015, I stepped out on faith to open my own law firm, BLWLEGAL GROUP. My practice focuses on criminal defense and personal injury (auto wrecks, slip and falls, dog bites, etc.). I have utilized this opportunity to use my knowledge, skills, and tenacity to advocate for what is the best outcome for each and every client and their families.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Accomplishing your dreams is never going to be an easy task. Running BLWLEGAL GROUP comes with obstacles, but starting my own law firm has certainly been the best decision I have ever made.
When I first decided to open my law firm, some family members and friends were not as supportive as I thought they would be. It was not coming from a place of negativity, but more so a fear of the unknown. They were not familiar with anyone who had their own business, nor someone who only used that business as their primary source of income. After realizing how passionate I was about this goal and seeing that I was ready for whatever would come my way, they eventually came around and became some of my biggest supporters.
My advice for other young people who want to have their own law practice or any business is to do your research, do not be afraid of the unknown, and go for it. You will never know what your highest potential can be if you don’t try.
We’d love to hear more about BLWLEGAL GROUP.
My law firm, BLWLEGAL GROUP, focuses on criminal defense and personal injury (auto wrecks, slip and falls, dog bites, etc). I take great pride in working personally on each and every case. However, I have a great team of assistants and interns who help me reach optimal results for my clients. Not only do I bring my experience as a former prosecutor to my clients, but I also go above and beyond the required continued classes for attorneys each year. The classes I have taken include but are not limited to:
• Top Gun DWI
• 9th Annual DWI Defense Project
• 2014 July Prosecutor Trial Skills Course
• 2014 Annual Criminal & Civil Law Update
• 3rd Annual Lone Star DWI: Blood, Breath and Spit
• 12th Annual Stuart Kinard Memorial Advanced DWI
• Criminal Defense Trial Skills & Trial Law Program: A Program for the Defense
• Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association – Tim Evans 41st Trial College Graduate
• Gas Chromatography for Legal Professionals
• Advanced Personal Injury Course
• Advanced Evidence and Discovery
The continuing education courses that I have taken, my experience as a former prosecutor, and my undeniable passion to help every client give me the opportunity to be the best advocate possible. It is not an opportunity that I take lightly.
In criminal cases, I refuse to sit by and let clients become just another person with a conviction. In personal injury cases, I refuse to allow insurance companies to give clients less money than they deserve.
When clients sign up for my representation, they are getting everything I possibly have to help them be successful.
What’s the most important piece of advice you could give to a young woman just starting her career?
As a woman, stay strong and speak up. Push yourself beyond your comfort zone, push yourself to be the best in your field and push yourself to leave a legacy for future generations.
Whatever dream you have in your heart is not there by chance. If you have a dream, go after it! Conquer it!
