Kaitlyn Williams singled out as region’s top attorney for dedication to Texas children
The Office of the Attorney General recognized Kaitlyn Williams, an Assistant Attorney General (AAG) in the Child Support Division’s Rosenberg office, for her commitment to Texas children. Williams was named Assistant Attorney General of the Year for the Child Support Division’s Region 10. She was presented with the award on Monday, August 2, 2021, at the Statewide Assistant Attorneys General Virtual Conference.
“I commend Kaitlyn for her hard work and dedication to improving the lives of Texas children and families,” Attorney General Paxton said. “Kaitlyn represents the best, and it is attorneys like her that make this agency great. I am thankful to her for answering the call to serve the people of Texas.”
One Assistant Attorney General was selected for this honor from each of the state’s ten child support regions, along with an Assistant Attorney General from the Child Support Division headquarters in Austin. Honorees are chosen based upon recommendations from their peers and supervisors, with a focus on employees who are willing to go beyond their normal duties to serve Texas children. Each recipient demonstrates a desire to serve Texas families, help their colleagues, and enhance the Attorney General’s Child Support Division.
Williams, who joined the Office of the Attorney General in 2019, represents the State in legal actions to establish paternity between children of unmarried parents and their biological fathers. She also works to establish, enforce, and modify court orders that require parents to provide child support, medical support, and dental support.
A graduate of the University of Houston Law Center, Williams was chosen to be the region’s Assistant Attorney General of the Year for being an exemplary attorney, willing trainer, and a strong leader.
“Region 10 and office 1003 (Rosenberg’s office) were fortunate to have Ms. Williams on their team. This year her office faced many challenges, including attorney vacancies and a transition to virtual court. Ms. Williams’ efforts enabled her office to continue resolving cases, with dockets often four times per week, despite these challenges. Region 10 thanks Ms. Williams for her outstanding work this year,” said Region 10 Senior Regional Attorney Jennifer Baker.
