Mickey Williams

Founding Partner

Mickey Williams is a former U.S. Army Ranger and decorated combat veteran who also served as a prosecution and defense attorney in the JAG Corps.  Known throughout the legal community for his powerful presence in the courtroom, Mickey represents clients facing the most serious allegations of misconduct and criminal charges.

Mickey’s commitment to his clients and ability to produce exceptional results has not gone unnoticed.  He has been recognized by Thomson Reuters’ Super Lawyers, holds the highest rating of 10/10 from Avvo, and has been named to Georgia Trend Magazine’s list of Legal Elite multiple times.  Mickey is also a sought after expert for media outlets and legal publications that cover cutting edge legal issues related to due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to confront accusers.  To see his recent interview on Newsy, click here.

Mickey’s philosophy when it comes to representing both military service members and students is similar and straightforward:

“No one deserves the protections afforded by our Constitution more than those who wear the uniform or are investing in their ability to positively impact our communities in the future.  Our firm has an unwavering commitment to protecting the rights of these clients and we will do everything possible within the bounds of the law to accomplish that objective.” – Mickey Williams 

Mickey earned his Juris Doctor from Willamette University College of Law and Bachelor or Arts from the University of Oregon.  Prior to founding co-founding Capovilla & Williams, he was a partner at two other small law firms dedicated to representing clients facing misconduct allegations.

When not practicing law, Mickey enjoys spending time with family, rooting on the Oregon Ducks, and volunteering at various military-related organizations and events.
