Take the administration folks down a notch or two in attitude and power (especially the accounting and conflicts people). I've never worked at a firm where I was treated so rudely by staff and where the administration is, in ways, given more power than the lawyers who are actually bringing in the money.

Salary was decent. Some of the lawyers were very good.

Most of the lawyers at Williams Mullen are arrogant, pushy and entitled. They behave as if they are the only people in the universe and demand to be treated as such. The firm reacted to COVID-19 quickly by telling us that we *could* telework but then within a couple of months they basically demanded that we return to the office to work onsite 100% of the time. They had installed some flimsy plexiglass in a couple of places, but that didn't stop unsafe contact between people. I was constantly uneasy about the pandemic and my potential exposure there. My former supervising attorney is not the brightest bulb in the chandelier and knows far less about my practice area than I do. There are some real "winners" working in firm administration/staff and I avoided them like the plague. I had an accounting person talk down to me as if I were a child on more than one occasion. As a lawyer, I'm not better than anyone else, but I deserve respect and don't settle for being shorted in that department. After a relatively short period of time, I started looking for other employment and, when I found it, I got the hell out of there. Morale is very low there. My secretary was constantly upset about being called to cover for other secretaries because there's far more work than there are people to do it. She works 10-12 hour days 5+ days/week. I feel sorry for her because she can't afford to take the leap to exit the firm at this time.

I am not going to name names, but you would be wise to avoid this firm at any cost.

That it's in my rear view mirror. Hallelujah!

Williams Mullen has been Finding Yes® for our clients for more than a century. Our firm began in 1909 when two Richmond, Virginia attorneys -- Lewis C. Williams and James Mullen -- realized that changes in business and individual finance laws would generate the need for cutting-edge legal services. Betting that their legal experience would benefit the Richmond business community, they formed the law firm of Williams & Mullen. Mr. Williams and Mr. Mullen were forward-thinking about the needs of their clients, an attribute that remains a cornerstone of the firm that bears their names. When Congress adopted the federal income tax in 1913, our founders' instincts were proved correct. Their extensive knowledge of the new tax code was invaluable to business owners, and their services were quickly in demand. This was the beginning of helping clients Find Yes. In the years since Mr. Williams and Mr. Mullen came together in 1909, our firm has grown through a number of strategic mergers. From one office in Richmond, Virginia, we’ve become an AmLaw 200 law firm with offices in eleven cities, three states and the District of Columbia. Under the leadership of president & CEO Woody Fowler, we continue to expand and increase the scope and depth of the firm’s lawyers and practice areas. We can’t wait to see what the next century brings.

Practice Areas

Williams Mullen. practices law in the following areas and works with its clients to provide the best possible legal solutions.

Pro bono

As attorneys, we have an ethical obligation to perform pro bono work for those who are unable to afford legal services. At Williams Mullen, we take this commitment seriously. Each year, our attorneys perform thousands of hours of pro bono work, either individually or as part of one of our firm initiatives. We hold several Wills for Seniors and Wills for Kids clinics annually, as well as our monthly legal aid clinic in conjunction with the Virginia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. We also are proud that our attorneys serve as pro bono legal counsel to several organizations, including Richmond Metropolitan Habitat for Humanity and Special Olympics North Carolina.

Our attorneys also work with the Virginia Poverty Law Center, the Virginia Asian Chamber of Commerce and Wills for Heroes. Members of our international team have been recognized by the Court of International Trade for work undertaken on behalf of indigent litigants. Although pro bono work is not done for recognition, our attorneys have won several awards for their commitment to those less fortunate.
