Serving Injured People Across North Dakota, Minnesota & Montana
A History of Helping People

For nearly 30 years, Maring Williams Law Office has been one of the region's most trusted & respected personal injury law firms.

Fargo & Bismarck Personal Injury Attorneys

Serving Clients Across North Dakota, Minnesota & Montana

Welcome to the Maring Williams Law Office. For almost 30 years, we have been one of our region’s most trusted and respected personal injury law firms. We are a law firm with a special concentration in litigation, primarily handling personal injury, car accident, truck accident, oilfield accident, and wrongful death cases. In addition, our firm provides services in the areas of commercial litigation, professional liability, products liability, and insurance cases.

Personal Injury Cases Made Personal

We focus our practice on complicated and contentious cases that other law firms often hesitate to accept. Insurance companies can be difficult and, at times, unreasonable. By focusing our efforts in these areas, we are able to stay atop changes in the law, insurance company practices, and advances in medical treatments that may be applicable to a client’s case. We provide innovative and professional legal representation for all of our clients.
