A personal note from Bill:

The success that I have enjoyed in a large part may be attributed to my taking ownership of sage advice received from Federal Judge Marsh when I clerked for him during law school: “The best lawyers are best because of preparation.” Preparation has enabled me to go about my profession without fear. What may appear to be a very large task when broken down is just a lot of smaller tasks stacked on top of each other. Every case is important to us. Every client represents a voice in the community where we practice. I want our clients to know that we are in their corner and that we are accessible 24/7.
I thank you for considering our firm for your legal issues.
