BALDWIN WILLIAMS is passionately committed in service to our clients and our community. It is our mission to fulfill this commitment in service as seekers of JUSTICE with INTEGRITY, and the FULL FORCE of the law on behalf of every client.

Located in the Emancipation Building of Historic Third Ward, Houston, Baldwin Williams & Associates PLLC is a litigation law firm founded by Shannon B. Baldwin and LaShawn A. Williams.  These two women share a history of tremendous experiences together: 

  • They met at and attended Sam Houston State University.
  • They both graduated with degrees in Criminal Justice.
  • They are members of Kappa Mu Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, pledging together in the Fall Semester of 1989.
  • They lived together and attended Thurgood Marshall School of Law together. 

Collectively, they have forty years of legal experience. They have each owned their own companies in real estate development, healthcare, and construction. They share the profound entrepreneurial spirit of building a business and appreciate the great contributions of small companies that sustain this country's economy.  Before forming Baldwin Williams, they each owned their own individual solo practice law firms and know the heartfelt personal connection made with clients when zealously advocating the client's cause. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the firm's areas of practice: Criminal Defense, Personal Injury, Business Litigation, Labor/Employment and Civil Rights.  They are more than equipped to handle each client's every legal need.
