I highly recommend William Bailey
I made a mistake in judgement and needed a professional defense attorney. I called and hired William Bailey and he handled everything from start to finish. William has much legal knowledge in handling criminal defense. He worked hard for me and proved his legal expertise in handling my case. His communication skills were excellent in keeping me informed and updated with my case by telephone and emails. William treated me with dignity and respect. William works hard and I appreciate his ethics and professionalism. I highly recommend William Bailey if you made a mistake in judgment and need a good defense lawyer who will work hard for you from start to finish. He worked hard for me and I am very pleased.

Thank you
William was very kind and answering my question he had nothing to gain but only to help which speaks of character which is rare to find anyone these days and a lot of times lawyers so I think he would be a perfect Advocate if you need someone to fight for you

Outstanding Attorney
Mr. Bailey represented me recently with an expungement case that dramatically effected my life. I have no limit on the great things I'd say about Bill. He took an intimate involvement in my case, knowing the details inside and out. His professionalism and demeanor were outstanding. Finally, his presentation in front of the judge was well timed with point and counterpoint arguments. I felt privileged in how he guided the conversation, injected his timing perfectly, and took charge when necessary in a court room setting. I highly recommend Bill if you want an attorney on your side who will be thorough when he represents you.

Expungement case
Consistent calls to update me on the situation as well as thorough explanation as to what he is doing for me, what I can expect, and how he is doing his job

Excellent
Worked with Billy on a case of Minor in Consumption. Small case, but Billy was great at communicating and knew what he was doing. There wasn't any evidence that could be used to win the case in the situation, but he was able to work out a plea bargain for a deferred imposition.

Very thankfull for his help. Gave me helpful instructions and advice throughout the period of time he was working on my case. Answered all my questions whenever I had any and stayed in touch as much as possible. Thanks again!

Handcuffing
His answer was apparently correct. I have no viable information to refute it. So, according to his answer to me - any officer at anytime can handcuff anyone as long as it is for the officers safety - I find that is sadly w/o substance.
