Christine V. Williams, the founder and managing partner of Outlook Law, LLC, was nominated by her peers to be a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation.

“The Fellows compromise a global honorary society of lawyers, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in the profession and service to society. Membership is limited to one percent of lawyers admitted to practice in the United States and its territories.”  

This follows Christine’s award as an Acritas Star by Thomson Reuters that she was nominated for by senior in-house general counsels for being an exceptional lawyer in addition to Christine’s multiple year award by Best Lawyers.  She is ranked by U.S. News’ Best Lawyers, a peer reviewed rating system, as being in the Top Five Percent of lawyers in her field in the Nation.

When Christine was asked about the most recent award, she responded in her typical fashion.  “Well, I cannot believe it is me.  I am so grateful to my clients and peers for helping me do the best job I can do.  I think about the struggles I have had in my life and am just happy.  The success I have been fortunate enough to enjoy is because I received helpful words and kind deeds to help me along the way.  I still do depend on that and value my friends and colleagues to sometimes balance the ship.  Success depends on that “am I crazy” reflection moment with a good friend and colleague.  The end goal of doing the right thing for the right reasons is the real payoff.  It’s addicting.  And fishing helps.  I love to fish with my family whenever and wherever.  Sometimes a person just needs to fish.”
