Chiumento Selis Dwyer, the Palm Coast law firm, announced that attorney Douglas Scott Williams, better known as Doug, has joined the firm as a partner.
“We have built a great relationship with Doug since we started working with him last year in an “of counsel” capacity and the timing was right to deepen the relationship and have him join us as a partner,” said Michael Chiumento, managing partner of the firm. “It’s always been our goal to provide the community with one law firm that people can rely on to serve any of their legal needs.” Williams, a workhorse of a familiar presence in Flagler County courts, will handle the firm’s immigration, criminal and family law matters.
Williams’s Daytona Beach office is now closed, and the firm has acquired his DeLand location at 547 East New York Avenue, bringing the number of locations for the firm to three: Palm Coast, Ormond Beach and DeLand.
Williams has served the Volusia and Flagler communities since 1997, representing people with immigration and complex criminal matters. With over 60 trials and more than 18 years’ experience, Williams, a release issued on behalf of the firm stated, protects the rights of our community and helps families through the confusing Federal Immigration process and complex criminal matters. Williams briefly considered a run for State Attorney in the seventh judicial circuit, which includes Flagler County, but Department of State document indicate he withdrew.
Williams received his law degree and Masters in Business Administration from Stetson University College of Law in 1997. He is a former assistant state attorney. He was admitted to U.S. District Court Southern District of Florida, U.S. District Court Middle District of Florida, and U.S. District Court Northern District of Florida in 1997. He is also a Member of AILA – American Immigration Lawyers Association, and was recently president of the Flagler County Bar Association.
