About me

I'm not your typical lawyer. Prior to establishing my law firm in 1996, I was a railroad brakeman/conductor and trainmaster, worked in the North Dakota oilfields as a roughneck, provided environmental engineering services to clients across the country, and taught environmental law for 12 years at Texas Christian University. I am a graduate of the University of North Dakota, with a Masters in Environmental Sciences from the University of Texas at Dallas and a law degree from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law. I have served on many community boards and organizations, most recently as a planning & zoning commissioner for the town of Flower Mound. I'm regularly appointed by the Denton County Probate Court as a special commissioner to determine property values in land condemnation cases. I am licensed to practice in all state courts of Texas, the US Supreme Court and the United States District Courts for the Northern District and the Eastern District of Texas.

  • Stephen Kuzmich

    I endorse this lawyer. William has been the opposing lawyer on many cases against me and he is a great attorney. When an opposing lawyer says that, it is a very high compliment! He is great in the courtroom, depositions and with his clients. Experienced, very well educated and worlds of common sense! One of the best attorneys in town.
