Our History

Brenton McWilliams graduated from the University of Alabama School of Law in 2012. He later opened The Law Offices of Brenton C. McWilliams in November 2018. He said the name of his firm was pretty ambitious, as “offices” at the time actually meant the corner of his kitchen. But he had a dream that would quickly come to fruition. In February 2019, the firm moved into their first office in Orange Beach. It wasn’t where Brenton wanted the law firm stay forever, but it was an excellent first brick-and-mortar location, giving the firm a certain level of legitimacy, he said. 

In June 2020, Brenton opened the second law office in Foley and in October 2020 he moved the Orange Beach office to where it is now. Since then, his team has continued to expand. He enjoys where the team is at, saying “now I can focus entirely on legal matters and have confidence that I have a capable team behind me.” 

In June 2021, Brenton added the third location in Daphne and expanded the Foley office. The law firm is now able to serve clients at offices across Alabama, reflecting the goal Brenton had when picking the name of his firm. 

Brenton knows this growth is due to clients that have trusted his team with the critical details of their lives and he takes pride in knowing he’s helped so many people plan and protect their estate.

Our Team

Brenton C. McWilliams


From the moment you meet Brenton, you’re at ease. His calm and caring demeanor isn’t typically a trait you would associate with the not-so-loved profession of attorney…and that’s why our clients leave our office feeling confident in their decision to choose our firm! Prior to opening the law office in Orange Beach, Brenton was a partner in one of Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s oldest law firms concentrating in real estate, estate planning, probate and business needs. 

Brenton has also previously served as the city attorney for a local municipality and was appointed as a Deputy Attorney General for the State of Alabama. He is admitted to practice law before all courts in the State of Alabama, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Alabama. Brenton is originally from Huntsville, Alabama and loves reading, biking and traveling with his wife, Crawford. He and Crawford live in Orange Beach with their Boykin Spaniel, Pickles, and are so thankful that they get to live and work in paradise.

Crawford McWilliams

Firm Administrator

Crawford just so happens to be Brenton’s wife…it’s a family affair! She wears a lot of hats at the law firm and plays an important role behind the scenes. She also assists with signings at our Foley and Daphne offices. In addition to working at the law firm, she’s also an artist (Crawford McWilliams Art), freelance interior designer, and owns an online vintage home decor boutique (Play Pretties – Vintage Treasures). Crawford has a big heart for philanthropy and outside of work she stays busy volunteering for the Junior League of Mobile, Meals on Wheels, American Heart Association, and the Pleasure Island Junior Woman’s Club. Crawford is originally from Marion, Alabama and loves spending time with friends, cooking and traveling with her favorite travel partner, Brenton.

Our next team member introduction is the charismatic Pickles McWilliams, our Director of Investigations and Security.
