Scholarship Recipient


Ms. Tamara J. Williams, Esquire


Tamara J. Williams is a past recipient of Sarasota’s Richard R. Garland Diversity Scholarship, and since, she has relocated to Sarasota to begin her legal career. She grew up in Miami, Florida, and is a graduate of Stetson University College of Law. At Stetson, Tamara received most of her courtroom training as a Certified Legal Intern at the Public Defenders Office in the Sixth Judicial Circuit, in which she was raised to be a fierce advocate for justice. While working at the Public Defenders Office, she advocated in a number of jury trials, all of which the jury returned a not guilty verdict, and one trial was declared a hung jury.

In addition to working in the public sector, Tamara received extensive training in the private sector, working in the areas of personal injury, family law, and workers compensation. Not long after gaining experience in these various areas of the law, Tamara opened her own law firm focusing on criminal defense, family law, and landlord/tenant litigation. As the firm’s owner, she employs the skills she was taught to zealously represent her clients in the courtroom and throughout all stages of litigation.   

Tamara is a true fighter, and has become active in local organizations geared towards service, diversity, and community involvement. Since beginning her legal career, Tamara has built a reputation as being a dedicated and trusted counselor, who is committed to equality.
