About Me

William was born and raised on the western slopes of the Wallowa mountains in eastern Oregon.  From there, he criss-crossed the nation, attending film school in New York City, remodeling houses in Seattle and landscaping in the San Juan Islands, before settling in Portland in 2008.


His diverse background informs his litigation style, combining an agressive hands-on approach with eye towards narrative detail.  This approach allows you to present your case as a compelling struggle of right against wrong with proven results in winning the support of judges and juries, alike.
