Brett T. Williams

bwilliams@joneshacker.com

Brett Williams joined the E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy law firm in 2015, becoming the first attorney to join the legal team after the merger of the E. Stewart Jones and Hacker Murphy law firms. Brett works closely with David Murphy and Patrick Seely in the firm’s Real Property Tax Dispute division, where his background in municipal government and the law of real property, along with his keen skills as an advocate enable him to represent the firm’s clients effectively.

During law school, Brett worked as a law clerk in a wide variety of offices and practice areas, including the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, the Town of Colonie Town Attorney’s Office, the law firm of Flink Smith, LLP, and the Chambers of New York State Supreme Court Justice, Patrick McGrath. He also served as an Associate Editor for the highly–regarded Albany Law Journal of Science and Technology, and as a research assistant for Professor Keith Hirokawa.

Like his E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy colleague and Albany Law School classmate, David Iversen, Brett is also a rugby player, having picked up the sport as a visiting student at the University of Oxford. He played with the Albany Law School Rugby Football Club all three years of law school, and continues to hit the pitch with Albany Bootleggers RFC, a local club.
