    Attorney Profile

    Attorney Michael R. Williams is a partner with the Bienert | Katzman PC, law firm in San Clemente, California, where he focuses his practice primarily on complex business litigation involving insurance coverage and bad faith insurance, professional negligence, contract and partnership disputes, business torts, alleged employment law violations, environmental law violations, trade secrets, real estate disputes and other serious matters.

    A highly rated trial lawyer with more than 20 years of legal experience, Mr. Williams serves a diverse range of clients throughout the state and across the nation, including Fortune 500 companies, closely held businesses, technology startups and high net worth individuals. Although successful as a trial attorney, Mr. Williams strives to help his clients resolve their conflicts and reach agreements outside the courtroom whenever possible, and he has earned a reputation for his ability to assist his clients in achieving the goals they seek efficiently.

    After graduating from California State University, Northridge, in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts in political science, Mr. Williams attended the University of California, Davis, School of Law, where he served as executive editor for the UC Davis Law Review. He obtained his Juris Doctor in 1997, graduating in the top 5 percent of his class. The State Bar of California admitted him to practice that same year, and he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

    Active in his legal community, Mr. Williams served as chair for the Orange County Bar Association Business Litigation Section in 2007, and he currently serves on the board of directors for the Orange County Bar Foundation. From 2012 to 2013, he served as president for the Public Law Center, and he is a former board member of the University of California, Davis, School of Law Alumni Association.

    Recognizing Mr. Williams for his impeccable professionalism and outstanding success, OC Metro Magazine voted him among the Top Attorneys in Orange County, and he holds a 10 out of 10 rating from AVVO.
