Bill is awesome lawyer, would hire him again in a heartbeat
I had 2 cases that Bill handled for me. The first case I ended taken a plea bargain that Bill had negotiated for me. He felt if I had gone to trial I would a 75-80 percent chance of a not guilty verdict, but if I lost I was looking at 3-5 years in prison. My family decided the risk was to great and the punishment was to excessive to risk and Bill got me a 2 year probation instead. I am grateful for him everyday I wake up. In my second case, me my wife and my daughter were served a search warrant and as a result of this we were all given municipal tickets. the search was an illegal entry into our home and when Bill filed a motion to suppress the search, he was inundated by the DA's office calling him and telling him that if we did not pull the motion that they would dismiss all charges and reissue them as criminal charges. Bill and I had several talks on this matter and I told him I would not give up my constitutional rights given to me as a citizen of this country. Bill told me each time he was proud of me for standing up for my rights. Well sure enough the state did what they said they would do, dismissed the charges and reissued criminal charges. when I called Bill on this matter, he told me flat out, he did not feel comfortable about defending us, due to the fact he felt he could be a witness in a civil rights lawsuit against the state., and he recommended to me a lawyer who hit a grand slam homer in our suppression of the search. Now what lawyer do you know would walk away from being paid. Honesty, integrity. and trustworthy are not to be taken lightly, and I stand for Bill in all of these character traits he possesses and highly recommend him in any criminal case you might have.
