    Bill is an experienced and highly skilled trial lawyer. We are on a panel of lawyers that compose the best criminal defense attorneys in Middle Tennessee. He provides zealous representation in a controlled and caring manner that produces great results for his clients. He is very well respected by the judiciary and his fellow attorneys and that translates into a great benefit for his clients. I would recommend Bill to anyone seeking criminal defense counsel.
