MetaOps – Seeking A Business Law Attorney
LORI T. WILLIAMS, P.C.
Attorney at Law
Re: Thanks for your help in finding a corporate attorney. . .
I wanted to tell you that I appreciated your assistance recently in our search for a corporate attorney.
Over the years we have worked with and interviewed over a dozen attorneys. In our most recent search we interviewed three, two of which you recommended. We really liked both of the firms you suggested to us. We were especially pleased that the one we selected fit so well with our philosophies and had just the right background and experience to meet our needs.
Normally we find the process of selecting a professional service provider grueling and fraught with uncertainties. Your assistance made this search painless and quick. We will heartily recommend you to our friends and business associates in the future.
Keep up the good work!

The Dunmires – A Couple Seeking A Real Estate Attorney
Thank you for providing names of experienced lawyers who could help us with a non-traditional purchase of a house. We are recent transplants to South Eastern Michigan and had no clue whom to call when the need arose. After many frustrating phone calls to lawyers using the telephone directory we realized this method was not working…and time was of the essence if we were going to buy the house of our dreams. Fortunate for us our bank representative suggested we contact you.
The firm you recommended specialized in property law and they returned our call right away. We were able to make an appointment and draft an agreement quickly. It turned out that there were serious complications so it was valuable that we had experienced behind us. We are really pleased that you recommended just the right firm to handle the paperwork and give us advice, advice that saved us literally thousands of dollars.
Legal matters are stressful for the layperson, but with your help we were in good hands. It was also comforting to know you could provide us with options should the need have risen. You followed up even after knowing we were satisfied, it let us know that you value your clients. For any future legal needs you can be sure we will be calling on you again and will recommend your services to our family and friends.
We will be closing on our new home within a week and wanted to let you know you were instrumental in making it happen. Thanks again.
Best Regards, David and Alexis Dunmire
Sharon White – Seeking An Estate Planning Attorney
Thank you for the referral to an estate planning attorney. A few months from expecting a child, I felt that estate planning was an important topic to address with a competent lawyer. But I was at a loss for how to find one. I really didn’t want to look in a phone book. I wanted to talk to someone who has worked with or could confidently recommend a lawyer. I didn’t want to turn to some random lawyer to be my most trusted resource in putting together a plan for my family’s minimization of estate taxes and financial security in the event of a tragedy. I did not know any estate planning lawyers personally. So who did?
Knowing your connections in the legal field and the relationship we developed through networking, I asked for a referral. It happened so quick – you called back and responded with a lawyer who was so helpful for a matter that is so easy to ignore, put-off, or try to forget about entirely.
I needed someone I could trust. You provided that. I received a return call the same day. They knew what I was looking for and were available to meet within my schedule. They quickly and confidently relayed my estate planning options. It was a meeting that made estate planning easy and understandable. I came out of there with clear action items of information needed to move forward.
Well that just was too easy. I was perplexed why everyone didn’t take estate planning action. So to make sure I was going in the right direction, I hazarded a second opinion on estate planning in general. I met with a lawyer I saw in the newspaper. A totally different experience. There were options without recommendations which just led to confusion and sketchy prices. There was no question in my mind about the direction I was taking with your referral lawyer. I was happy that the referral was coming from someone who was just as concerned that it was a good match for me.
Your attentiveness to detail and responsiveness clearly make your business stand out. Thank you for your continued referrals to specialized business attorneys for my other ventures and company plans. I can truly say that “Lori Williams” legal referral service is a number not to lose.” You never know when you need a lawyer and when you need one, you don’t want to waste time talking to the wrong people.”

Christie Clipper – Seeking A Business Coach & An Attorney To Handle An Harassment Claim
I wish to take a moment and sincerely thank you for the two referrals you gave me. In a time when I needed some clear direction in my life and appropriate legal counsel you knew where I could turn. After a year of not getting what I felt I needed from my attorney and moving forward in my career, you provided the bridge to get the help I needed.
Lori your services provided me with strong, experienced legal counsel. You saved me the time and energy seeking alternative counsel and the stress of wondering if I found the right attorney from the start. Within a week I was able to meet with my new attorney and he spent much time going over all the details of my case. My questions were not just answered. I was educated as to the “why” this is and “how” we can precede. Before I felt I was chasing my other attorney down and left with unanswered questions. I was not comfortable with how my case was being handled. The relationships you develop with the professionals whom represent and assist you with issues that affect you emotionally and/or financially in life have to be entrusted by those who are really working for you.
Sometimes when we feel “what next” or “how am I going to get through this” it’s amazing how people can come into your life and make things more clear. I am so grateful for the direction you have shown me to take in resolving both my legal and business matters. You certainly do connect the right client with the right professional.

Preston True – Seeking A Business Attorney
I wanted to acknowledge and thank you for your recent efforts in helping me find a new attorney.
As we discussed, I was disappointed with a current legal relationship and was seeking a new one. As a small business owner as well as parent and spouse, I did not have any great legal needs, but had some business issues that needed attention.
Your recommendation was excellent on two levels. First, Don has been a very refreshing change in terms of his approach and demeanor. As I left my former attorney for no other reason than poor “bedside” manner, Don clearly has a far greater handle on building client relationships.
Secondly, and most importantly, you took the time to get to know me above and beyond my legal needs. This effort speaks volumes with regard to how you operate and build your business as you could have referred me to just anyone but didn’t. In a world full of good and bad legal counsel, your consideration of the most important element (human relationships) has proven itself truly effective.
Thank you for taking so much of the risk and frustration out of finding a new professional relationship. I look forward to helping you any way I’m able including sharing my experience with other business owners.
