Bill’s highly analytical mindset combined with a strong practical sense means he is well versed in handling competing tasks while solving complicated legal issues.

No matter the legal landscape or context, clients can place confidence in Bill’s thorough, thoughtful approach and knowing that he gives every challenge his all.

In his former life, Bill was:

  • A Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable John A. Woodcock, Jr. at the United States District Court for the District of Maine
  • Student Attorney at the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic
  • Executive Editor of the Maine Law Review
  • Teaching Fellow for Civil Procedure, Contracts, and Property and a Legal Writing Teaching Assistant
  • Head Teaching Fellow of the Academic Success Program
