Since our founding in 1925 by J. J. Williams Jr., Williams Parker has been an active participant in southwest Florida’s growth and governance. J. J. Williams Jr.’s father was the mayor of Memphis, using local government planning to eradicate yellow fever there during his tenure. That legacy continues nearly a century later at Williams Parker. Clients know we enjoy an extensive network of personal and professional relationships, and that we understand the community and how things work at the local level. Our attorneys serve as general legal counsel to local government entities, offering guidance on issues including public records, Florida’s Sunshine Law, ethics laws, procurement, labor and employment, ad valorem and other state taxes, and many other issues. Williams Parker also represents private sector clients before government entities on a myriad of issues including land use, permitting, zoning, and environmental reviews.
