After leaving a very unsatisfactory meeting with our then attorney my husband and I we were not being adequately represented and sought a second opinion. A friend had referred us to Attorney Watkins upon calling and speaking with him he immediately rearranged his scheduled the very same day to meet with us as we were under a deadline our prior attorney had failed to inform us of. Had Bill not been so responsive and knowledgeable of the laws governing our situation we could have potentially missed an important filing. From the initial meeting and throughout the entire process Attorney Watkins remained on top of the situation, kept us apprised and never once failed to return a phone call or answer any questions we had. We had what was considered to be a difficult case involving a problem that many said we would never prevail upon as cases such as ours hardly ever result in reversals. Attorney Watkins presented a strong defense on our behalf, his presentation was clear concise and delivered the points needed to make our case. As a result the judge ruled in our favor. Bill informed us of the decision almost as soon as it was handed down. He took the time to inform us of what our next steps were and remained with us through fruition. If you want an attorney with a no-nonsense approach who is straight forward and addresses your concerns then I would highly recommend Attorney Watkins and would not hesitate again to hire him.
For Traffic Violation
I’m not sure if he normally does traffic tickets, he was recommended to me by a family friend, but he did when I called. He successfully got the speeding violation removed for me. He was very nice when we met and based on the pictures and such that were in his office, he is also active in the community a lot. I can’t speak for his performance otherwise, but for a speeding ticket in Northeast PA, I definitely recommend Attorney Bill Watkin.
I Recommend Attorney Watkins !
I have known Attorney Watkins for awhile and he represented me on both of my cases. He is very intelligent and caring. He put my mind at ease from the very beginning and kept me up to date with everything that was going on. if you are looking for someone who is looking for your best interest, and willing to listen and guide you through your worries during a difficult situation I would highly recommend him. He was knowledgeable and has a good relationship with the courts. Attorney Watkins is always available to talk and overall I rate him a 10 out of 10.
Caring Custody Attorney
Attorney Watkins handled my custody hearing. He is not like other attorneys I have dealt with, he truly cared about my children’s best interest (and mine of course). He had great suggestions for my situation. We met before my hearing started, I was nervous, but his knowledge and caring personality helped put my nerves at ease. He informed me of all the possible situations that could happen and what my options would be. He also made an effort to make my children feel better about having to sit in a courthouse. I could not be happier with choosing Attorney Watkins to represent me.
About a year and a half ago I was drinking too much and got into a physical fight with my husband (who was also drinking too much) I assaulted him with a weapon bc I was scared but I had done this once before so I was looking at some jail time. My husband filed for divorce and pressed assault with a knife charges against me. Attorney Watkins was able to get me probation and no jail time! I couldn’t believe it! Then he handled my divorce for me too. I called the office all the time bc I was so upset. His secretary talked to me most of the time but they kept me informed. I was very lucky that he’s not one of those attorneys who charges for phone calls bc I called there at least twice a week! It is hard to reach him by phone bc he’s really busy. Apparently Monroe County has him hired as an attorney for children and also as a public defender. I don’t think the county would have him do those jobs if he wasn’t a very good lawyer. I was able to make appointments to see him when I needed to so it was okay if I couldn’t talk to him on the phone. He is the only lawyer I’ve found that doesn’t rip you off with money and he even helped me to find a place to go so I could stop drinking. My divorce is final and I didn’t have to go to jail for the problem with my ex-husband. I stopped drinking and was able to pay him without spending thousands and thousands of dollars. I am writing this bc I was mad when I saw what the other people wrote. When I went to him I asked him if he could keep me out of jail and he said he couldn’t promise me that and he would never promise anyone that they won’t go to jail bc he doesn’t know what the judge will decide. So I don’t believe that he told that other person they wouldn’t go to jail. He probably said he would do the best he could to try to keep them out of jail and sometimes there is just no way to avoid it. Mr. Watkins is very kind and very fair. He’s also really funny and helped me to get through a really bad time in my life. I would highly recommend him as an attorney.
A Recommendable Attorney
Kept his word with me and a reasonable price even though the case drug out longer than expected. I’d recommend him to a friend.
From a Fellow Attorney
I am a fellow attorney of William’s in Stroudsburg and have worked with and against him many times. He is a professional, intelligent attorney who represents his clients to the limit. I have seen him in trial multiple times and have learned a lot from him. I sincerely endorse and recommend him for criminal defense and family law matters.
Attorney Watkins presented a strong defense on our behalf, his presentation was clear concise and delivered the points needed to make our case. As a result the judge ruled in our favor.
