Pessin Katz Law, P.A. (PK Law) has announced the election of Kambon R. Williams to Member. Formerly Senior Litigation Associate, Mr. Williams has worked with the firm since 2012.
Mr. William’s practice focuses generally on complex commercial litigation with a specific focus on education, labor & employment, and first-party insurance coverage disputes.

“My association with PK Law has provided opportunities for hands-on litigation experience including engaging directly with clients, taking depositions and arguing motions, hearings, or trials that were not available to me at previous firms,” explained Kambon Williams. “This direct involvement has proven invaluable to my professional growth as there is no replacement for having complete responsibility over high-value litigation matters.”
“Kam is a high achiever with a passion for excellence and has a special talent for resolving the most complex legal challenges,” stated Drake Zaharris, Managing Director, PK Law. “His election to Member demonstrates the confidence we have in Kam as a future leader and a mentor.”
