Attorney Tara J. Williams
Fighting Big Insurance and others to protect my clients’ best interests
Ms. Williams joined the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin in 2002, becoming a shareholder in 2005.
Ms. Williams received her J.D. from the University of North Carolina School of Law. She received her B.S. in Chemistry from Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama.
She is a very strong advocate for our personal injury clients, fighting Big Insurance and whoever it takes to try to right the wrongs and liberate her clients from injustice.
“I receive tremendous satisfaction knowing that what I do helps protect people against forces that work against their best interests, and that I can help people move through disrupting, and sometimes tragic, events which occur in their lives.”
In addition to her personal injury practice, Ms. Williams offers legal services on a contingency basis for some aspects of intellectual property.
"I enjoy the intellectual challenge of technology and innovative pursuits, and appreciate the creativity exhibited in the arts," Ms. Williams says. "I get tremendous satisfaction from advising independent inventors and entrepreneurs about their intellectual property matters and assisting them in pursuing their endeavors."
Ms. Williams is a member of both the North Carolina and Michigan State Bar Associations, the Durham County Bar Association, and the 14th Judicial District Bar Association. She is a member of the United States Patent Bar; US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit; US Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit; US District Court, Eastern District of North Carolina; US District Court, Middle District of North Carolina; and the US District Court, Western District of North Carolina.
