I was injured on a barge. I had a previous lawyer that wanted to give my case away. I found Bill on the Internet. I called him and asked him if I should accept the settlement my lawyer was recommending. Bill told me no way to take that offer. 6 months later he tripled the settlement amount. Bill first got me Longshore benefits and then was successful in bringing a Jones Act case. The guy works magic if you ask me. Can't say enough about him and his staff.

I was referred to Bill by another lawyer. I was told he was very good. Turns out - he was even better than that. He took the time to answer my questions and my wife's questions. My wife can be a little tough to deal with and her fears were put to rest. He is really down to earth and easy to talk with. Putting that aside, I think he can really take it to the insurance company and their attorneys.
I was badly injured while unloading a ship. I can't go back to work on the waterfront, but I am taken care of for life. My kids can still go to college, even though I can't work.
We had the case done in a year and a half.
I can't recommend him and his office enough.
By the way, I had a previous injury and I felt like my lawyer gave my case away. You don't get any of that with Bill's office. You really get the feeling that they care about their clients. My take is that Bill is an awesome lawyer.

I had a serious injury boating accident. I was in the hospital for weeks. I was unable to return to my work. I was in a tough spot. I hired another lawyer that was good, but it was over his head.
He referred me to Bill. Which was the best thing that could have happened to me. Bill was able to win my case in less than 6 months. I can't saw enough about him and his office.
I had a BIG problem with my case. My first lawyer thought that we could lose the case because of it. Bill insisted on being 110% honest with the other side. Instead of hiding the problem, Bill made it a central part of the case. He really does win with honesty.
I recommend Bill highly. He is fantastic. We got a lot more money in the settlement than I ever expected. I don't have to work anymore, but I am now back in school. My life is back together.

Bill handled my shipyard accident case. I was very pleased with him. He kept me informed and he was always available for me. He is very knowledgeable and professional. Yet he is down to earth and easy to talk to. I would recommend Bill to anyone that needs a lawyer.
I had another lawyer when I got hurt on a ship before. Bill is much, much better than the other lawyer I had.

This is lawyer is special. He is honest, very aggressive, hard working, and gets great results.
I was very badly injured. I had a workers compensation case. I was referred to Bill by another lawyer. He told me "Bill is very good." The other lawyer was a tad wrong. Bill is even better than I was told.
Bill filed a civil lawsuit. It was a product liability case. A third party case.
He is very confident. When my deposition was taken, Bill did a great job of getting me ready. Bill had me down to the office again and again.
He kept me very informed. He told me that other side was probably going to settle. And they did. I was very, very pleased with the settlement. it was MUCH MORE than I expected to get.
The office staff makes it very easy to deal with his office. Everyone there is first class.
Another thing I really liked about Bill is his commitment to being honest. I really liked that he always took the high road. I had a few things about my case that I was very concerned about. After we talked about them, we dealt with them honestly. I think the defense lawyer was shocked when we were so honest with them. I could see the look in his face. He thought for sure I was going to be truthful.
Bill says you can only win by being honest. It was true with me. This lawyer really is special.
