HUNTINGTON – A Huntington lawyer has been recognized by three organizations this year for continuing to be one of West Virginia's top attorneys.
Marc Williams is managing partner of the Nelson Mullins Riley and Scarborough office in Huntington, and he is an accomplished trial attorney who has handled more than 100 trials and appeals. Not only does he manage several attorneys at the Huntington office, but he also does managing work at his firm's Columbia, South Carolina office and is a co-chair of the Consumer and Mechanical Product Liability Practice Group. Williams received his juris doctorate from the West Virginia University College of Law and his bachelor's degree from Marshall University.
To celebrate all his hard work and consistent accomplishments, West Virginia University College and West Virginia Executive magazine listed Williams as one of their Lawyers and Leaders: Class of 2017.

"I'm proud to be chosen by my peers as a leader," Williams told The West Virginia Record. "There are lots of great lawyers in West Virginia that exercise leadership in a wide variety of ways, and it was flattering to be listed among this group of outstanding people who are doing such good work in an array of fields."
Additionally, Williams was named Lawyer of the Year by The Best Lawyers in America 2018. This wasn't his first time being recognized by fellow lawyers. His first time receiving the same title from Best Lawyers was in 2008, and he won again in 2017 for his mass tort litigation and class actions.
"I work very hard to do the right thing for our clients and develop good relationships with other lawyers," Williams said. "When your peers tell you that your work deserves recognition, that's as flattering as you can get."
In addition to continuing to fight for his clients as a dedicated attorney, Williams is often busy traveling the country to discuss malpractice management, trials and leadership.
"Being able to go to places and speak on these issues gives me a perspective of how wonderful it is to practice in West Virginia, where we have such good lawyers, good judges and a relatively small Bar where we all know each other and work together advancing the cause on behalf of our clients," Williams said.
