In 2003, Christie Williams won a federal acquittal for a client caught in a conspiracy-to-manufacture charge that involved 1,000 marijuana plants discovered in a refrigerated trailer in Texas. The case netted multiple defendants, but Williams’ client survived the federal investigation. A few months later, she co-led another highly publicized defense, winning an acquittal for a client who was accused of bribing former Ohio Representative James Traficant in exchange for legislative favors. Traficant ended up in prison for bribery scandals, but Williams worked together with the firm’s founding partner to win an acquittal for her client. Williams spent six years working as an assistant district attorney in Dallas, learning the prosecution side of her trade. In 1999, she took a spot in Thomas W. Mills Jr.’s Dallas defense firm, earning name partner status by 2002. She has also become a bit of a media star, commenting as a legal expert on radio and television outlets, including Court TV. Currently, Williams is defending a Dallas police officer accused of helping plant fake drugs on Mexican immigrants, another high-profile scandal for Williams’ resume. After these years of experience, Williams was elected to the board of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and she is also the former chairwoman of the Criminal Justice Committee for the Dallas Bar Association.
