Our Mission

We deliver quality legal representation to clients who need help navigating a complex and often confusing legal system.

Our attorneys and staff are committed to promoting access to justice in our local community and beyond through our detailed online guides, affordable payment plans, and client-centered approach to each and every case.

Who We Are

We’re a collection of experienced attorneys, dedicated support staff, and savvy tech professionals. We’re innovators, difference makers, and advocates for justice.

Most importantly, we’re a group of people who genuinely want to help our neighbors with their legal problems.

Our attorneys recognize that the ones who need legal services the most are often the ones who can afford it the least.

At Tingen & Williams, we’re trying to correct this problem.

How We Can Help

Lawyers are, at their core, people with experience in solving problems.

Some lawyers spend their time performing research, drafting legal documents, and arguing with other attorneys on the behalf of their clients.

We take a slightly different approach.

Our firm is committed to the singular goal of solving legal problems for our clients in a way that makes the entire process as affordable and painless as possible.

From our free online legal guides to our promise to always call back within one business day, our attorneys take a client-first approach to legal services by focusing on the ways we can solve the most common problems people have with law firms.

For our clients, this means quick responses from our attorneys, affordable billing practices, and the comfort that our firm has their best interests in mind at all times.

Combined with our bilingual staff and years of experience in navigating complicated immigration, family law, and intellectual property law issues, this client-first approach has led to over 225 positive Google reviews, thousands of satisfied clients, and a reputation in Richmond for being one of the best law firms to work with.

If you’re interested in hiring our firm please give us a call at (804) 477-1720 to speak with one of our attorneys about your case.

We hope you choose to retain our firm for your legal matter, and thank you for taking the time to #lawyerup with us!

Learn More About What Sets Us Apart

Our attorneys and staff have the skills and experience you need to resolve your case both quickly and effectively.

Most importantly, we take a different approach to legal services by focusing on ways we can solve the most common problems people have with law firms:

Problem: It's hard to get in touch with my attorney.

At Tingen & Williams, we’ve made a commitment to always respond to client contacts within one business day.

When you’re already dealing with the stress of an important legal matter, quick and consistent communication is very important.

Whether you want a simple update or you want to better understand the strategy in your case, our attorneys and staff will keep you in the loop at every step of your case.

Problem: I've heard about attorneys that will promise one thing and then deliver another, so I'm worried about what to expect.

No attorney can guarantee a specific result in your case.

Instead, we aim to help clients understand every aspect of their case before moving forward.

There’s no such thing as a “sure-thing” in the legal world, but we’ll do our best to make sure you know what to expect before you step into the courtroom.

Problem: I never know what's going on in my case, and my attorney never explains anything.

We believe that an informed client is a happy client.

From our firm’s extensive Knowledge Base to our client-focused consultation structure, we’ve developed our business around making sure our clients understand the ins and outs of their specific legal matter.

Problem: Attorneys are too expensive, and I'm worried that I won't understand where my money is going.

We believe in giving everyone access to justice, and we try to reflect this ideal in every aspect of our practice.

For this reason, we’ve taken steps to make the legal process as affordable and accessible as possible for all of our clients.

While it’s no secret that some types of cases can get expensive quickly, our attorneys ensure you only pay for the services you need.

Further, our transparent billing practices can help you know ahead of time exactly where your money is going.
