    Along with being a friend, I have worked on several cases with William and have always appreciated his calm, reasoned approach to his work. Pleasant to work with and positive in nature, he is very thoughtful and genuinely sets his clients' needs first.

    Not only do I endorse this lawyer, but I usually see him as a good resource when I have any questions myself. His experience with the Nevada Supreme Court is invaluable.
