About us

Solicitors

Mr Kevin Thomas Williams

Kevin Williams was educated at Queen Elizabeth Grammar School Carmarthen and graduated with honours from The University College of Wales Aberystwyth in 1974. He qualified as a Solicitor in 1977 and thereafter served his articles of clerkship with a prominent litigation firm in Llanelli. He was employed as an assistant clerk to the justices for a short period and has practised in Lampeter since 1978.

Mr Williams has extensive experience of advocacy. He is a Court Duty Solicitor and is accredited as a Police Station Solicitor advisor. He has specialised in agricultural and rural matters including family partnership disputes and has conducted many successful professional negligence actions. He has been responsible for cases that have concluded in the High Court and Court of Appeal. Two of his prominent cases have been mentioned in the Law Reports.

He is Registrar to the Archdeacon of Cardigan and before restructuring of the system he was Clerk to the local Commissioners of Income Tax. He is a fluent Welsh speaker and has conducted cases through the medium of Welsh on several occasions. He is a former President of the West Wales Law Society.

He works closely with his daughter Angharad in the practice and would say that the experience of age and the enthusiasm of youth is a combination that benefits the practice in general and the clients of the practice in particular.
