LANCASTER, Texas (PRWEB) September 26, 2020
Williams & Williams Law Group Managing Attorney Saharie Reed gave the following statement for the entire Firm:
“The Williams & Williams Law Group, PLLC mourns the death of their Founder Mr. Jason Williams on September 14, 2020 at 105 years young. He represented Black Lives Matter long before the movement ever started. He was a leader and a teacher for so many of those who have passed through his law firm and will be dearly missed by all or us and those who knew him as a co-worker or client.”
Our hearts and prayers go out to the Williams family for their loss and the loss of a true hero. Being an African American lawyer in the late 1930s, he stood tall and shined a light on the path for other African Americans who embarked on the path of the legal industry. As a young black lawyer, he was blessed to worked side-by-side with the late United States Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. during the civil rights era.
Mr. Williams worked in the Public Defender’s Office becoming a State Prosecutor and then a Federal Prosecutor. He established his own one-man law firm which grew to a 60-person firm over the course of a few years, growing to be one of the most successful law firms in south Dallas. Mr. Williams will be greatly missed and the star which shined so bright will grow dim but never go out. His legacy will continue to live through young lawyers he trained and are still performing law today.
Williams & Williams Law Group, PLLC also mourns the death of our beloved Rita. A Nixon who died on August 16, 2020. Ms. Nixon worked 30 years for the US Federal Government and became a Private Investigator and Paralegal for the Williams & Williams Law Group, PLLC for over 7 years. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and sister plus a very dear and close friend of Mr. Williams for decades. Ms. Nixon was an extraordinary women with a great knowledge of life and law. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
It is unfortunate at the time of our mourning Mr. Williams and Ms. Nixon, we also have the passing of another great legal mind, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. With our hearts already heavy with the passing of our founder Jason Williams and dear friend Rita Nixon, our hearts go out to the family of United States Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, a very unique person and remarkable woman. Justice Ginsberg was real fighter for individual rights and a top intellect when it came to the law.
Just as Federal Prosecutor Jason Williams, one of the first Black Federal Prosecutors, Justice Ginsberg, the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court, broke countless barriers throughout her long legal career serving as an example for woman worldwide being a woman who broke the barriers. We are all so grateful for her service to our great nation and being a role model for all women around the world.
