  • Christopher James O'Toole

    I have known Bill since we were both prosecutors at the Broward County State Attorney's Office back in 1998. I have worked together with him on several cases since then. While working together, I witnessed firsthand how much he cares for his clients. He handles himself with class and professionalism. Plus, he happens to be an excellent attorney. I definitely endorse him and would highly recommend him to any client seeking a top notch criminal defense attorney.

    Bill is a great DUI trial lawyer. He has handled cases throughout the state and is always willing to go to trial on his client's behalf. A great guy and tough lawyer. Highly recommended.
