William Oris Worsham

also known as Will Worsham

About me

I graduated from Logan-Rogersville High School in 1989 and attended Drury University until 1993 earning an Bachelors degree in English with Honors and a minor in Speech Communication. While there I was the Station Manager of KDCR 530AM and a member of SIGMA PI.

I attended the University of Missouri School of Law from 1993-1996 and was granted a Juris Doctorate. I passed the bar that summer.

I was hired by Shawn Askinosie to start and run a niche practice in Springfield, MO called The Ticket Center which I did until the fall of 1999 when I joined the Greene County Prosecutor's Office as an Assistant Prosecutor. In September of 2002 I left Greene County and started my own firm where I still practice today.

In 2009 I was selected by the Springfield Business Journal for their "40 under 40" award.

My Practice is mostly comprised of Criminal Defense, Business Law, Real Estate and Collections. I have served as City Attorney for Rogersville and Fordland. Additionally, I serve as the Municipal Judge for the Cities of Fair Grove, Billings & Strafford.

I have the pleasure of serving as Master of Ceremonies for a number of local events including the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, the Logan-Rogersville Educational Foundation's Wildcat Gala and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation's Walk for a Cure. 

I am a Certified National Instructor with the American Taekwondo Association and hold the rank of 4th Degree Black Belt.
