Our team is proud to announce that our very own John Eddie Williams was recently honored with the Joseph D. Jamail Award for Justice that is presented by Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse (AVDA), a Houston-based non-profit. This award honors “‘unparalleled community service and advocacy for those who cannot afford legal representation’” and reflects the extensive pro bono work that Williams has donated to this valuable organization. Founded in 1980, AVDA provides direct support and advocacy to families that have been victimized by domestic abuse.
Over the years, Williams and his wife, Sheridan, have distinguished themselves as philanthropists in Houston. The couple has helped to fund research in Houston hospitals, donated toys to underprivileged families, and have directly supported many other causes like AVDA.
