About William

Learn William’s areas of practice.

Graduated from the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law in 2012.  During my final year, I clerked for the Honorable Robert S. Weiss in Division 8 of Circuit Court in Shelby County.  Since joining Wiseman Bray, I have focused most of my practice on civil litigation and local governement work. 

Outside the office I enjoy everything outdoors.  I attend Oliver Creek church of Christ and volunteer with my alma-mater, Freed-Hardeman, as part of the President's Alumni Cabinet where I have the opportunity to advise the University's President on matters ranging from enrollment to endowment management.
