John R. Williams and Associates, LLC has defended high-profile and controversial criminal defendants for over 40 years. Our firm was established in 1971 following Mr. Williams’ successful defense of Black Panther Party members. We have also defended clients such as the Lorne Acquin mass murder cases in Prospect, Connecticut, the largest mass murder in Connecticut history, and members of the Black Liberation Army and Los Macheteros.
We represent clients in misdemeanor and felony matters, including the following:
- Sexual Assault/Rape
- Child Molestation
- Drug Charges
- Domestic Violence
- White Collar Crime
We also have expertise in cases involving “false confession syndrome,” where innocent people will confess to crimes they did not commit. Mr. Williams was the first criminal defense attorney in the United States to win an acquittal in a criminal case on the ground that the ingestion of Prozac caused the criminal behavior. We represent clients in difficult and challenging criminal defense matters in both state and federal courts, at both the trial level and on appeal.
