Law Offices of Beverly A. Williams

Beverly Williams was the first woman at Loyola Law to receive the Judge Hogabaum Jurisprudence Award for outstanding trial advocacy, and she has thrived professionally by keeping her family close. She shares her Inglewood, Calif. office building with her husband, an orthodontist, and her three daughters went into business as well.

A native of Washington D.C., Williams has a BA in business management and economics from Howard University, and her law practice focuses on trademark and copyright. She handles contract preparation and negotiations for fine artists, music production companies and film and TV talent.

Williams notes, "I overcame many hurdles, yet my greatest challenge was time management. The more you juggle, the more likely something will fall through the cracks. Your clients expect you to give 100%. Respect for your profession will carry your firm's reputation to the next referral and satisfied client."
