Mandy Williams

Attorney in Edwardsville, IL

A trained mediator, Mandy is a proponent of formal and informal means of Alternative Dispute Resolution and has a reputation amongst her colleagues as an even-keeled, logical, and successful negotiator. In a practice focused on the defense of product liability and toxic tort cases, these skills are increasingly useful as companies seek outside-the-box answers and administrative solutions in the face of ever-shifting litigation threats.

Mandy addresses potential liabilities and zealously defends her client's interests in a manner that also makes good business sense. When in an executive role, Mandy is a key boots-on-the-ground player and enjoys taking an active part in the implementation and execution of a client's defense. She works with her clients to develop an individualized approach to litigation defense that looks beyond their immediate and local needs, ensuring their litigation strategy protects their interests across jurisdictions and supports their long-term goals. Building on this perspective, Mandy completed an immersive and comprehensive formal curriculum to become a Certified Litigation Management Professional in 2017.

Having grown up in Madison County, Illinois, a hotbed of litigation, Mandy Williams has worked in the legal field in various capacities for more than two decades. With extensive experience helping both large and small companies make informed and proactive decisions, Mandy keeps them in control of the chaotic and confusing litigation process. Though she doesn't hesitate to take her battle over important issues into the courtroom, she appreciates how effective out-of-court advocacy can be to a client's overall success.
