Jason Rogers Williams, a native of Uptown New Orleans, graduated from the prestigious Woodward Academy in College Park, GA – formerly the Georgia Military Academy – and entered Tulane University where he earned a full football scholarship before matriculating to Tulane Law School. While at Tulane Law School, he was presented with the prestigious Order of Barristers honor and he began practicing law at Criminal District Court through the law school’s clinic program, even though still a student.

After graduation in 1997, Williams worked with the law firms of Gertler, Gertler, Vincent, and Plotkin, and Spears & Spears, but within two years, he started his own practice and quickly gained a reputation as one of the fiercest trial attorneys in the City of New Orleans. After winning a series of high profile criminal cases, Williams was appointed to serve as a State court Judge at Criminal District Court by the Louisiana Supreme Court, making him the youngest district judge in the City’s history. After his tenure as Judge, Williams returned to his vigorous practice of handling a variety of high profile cases in state and federal courts.

Year after year, Williams’ tireless efforts on behalf of the accused resulted in wins for clients that a less determined advocate would have certainly attempted to plead out. His ability to take and win “unwinnable” criminal cases continued to result in not guilty verdicts in many highly publicized trials. Williams also worked to exonerate and free the wrongfully convicted through his pro-bono work with the Innocence Project, including State v. Greg Bright and State v. Earl Truvier. In addition, Williams also served on the Louisiana State Indigent defender Board’s Director Selection Committee and has also worked as a Professor at Tulane Law School.

Williams’ cases have been covered by a variety of news programs and publications, including, USA Today, NY Times, The Baton Rouge Advocate, LA Times, Rolling Stone, Vibe, CNN, WWL, WDSU, FOX 8, WGNO, WBOK, WAFB, WBRZ and The Times Picayune. He currently serves on the Board of Directors of Innocence Project of New Orleans, the Board of Directors of the GNO After School Partnership, the Federal Public Defenders Conflict Panel, and the Orleans Parish Public Defenders Conflict Panel. His success in a number of high profile trials has led to guest appearances as a legal analyst on WDSU, WBOK, WGNO and FOX 8.
