Our Firm's History


The law firm of Sullivan, Williams & Quintin has been serving the Bristol County area for over 30 years.  In 1988, John E. Williams and Raymond J. Quintin became partners in the firm and represented one bank, First Federal Savings Bank.  Since then, Jay and Ray have grown the practice and currently represent over 30 banks and lending institutions.  They pride themselves on being one of the largest real estate law practices in the region and have developed an unparallelled database.

Being residents of the Southcoast area their whole lives, both partners have developed a great sense of family and community.  This is exemplified through their volunteerism with local civic organizations and non-profit charities, such as The New Bedford Boys & Girls club, the Greater New Bedford United Way and many others.
