I have known Bill since I was a young attorney and he was a Raleigh prosecutor, some fifteen years ago, where he not only effectively prosecuted most of the offices DWI cases, but he co-wrote a statewide DA's trial manual. For over a decade now, Bill has employed that advocacy and attention to detail in defending drivers charged with DWI and individuals charged with all types of crimes, from drug sales and white-collar crimes all the way down to speeding tickets. I have attended trial lawyer seminars where he has taught me and many others his own effective defense strategies. Bill will go the extra mile for clients and always gets the best outcome. As a fellow attorney who sees Bill's advocacy, I can't recommend Bill highly enough.

I endorse Mr. Finn as one of the best criminal defense attorneys in our community. As a former prosecutor with nine years of criminal trial experience, I had the opportunity to work directly with Mr. Finn in both District and Superior Courts. While always focusing on his client’s best interest and working zealously to achieve the best outcome, he consistently maintained a level of professionalism that encouraged not only productive plea negotiations, but also excellent working relationships with prosecutors, judges and all other court personnel. He has earned the respect of his peers and has built a solid reputation for honesty and integrity.
