William D. Black, with my highest regard
Mr. Black has provided a variety of legal services to my family and me over the last several years. I initially contacted him for advice relating to certain of my business matters, but more sought his services regarding a personal injury accident in which my daughter was involved. She was struck by a negligent driver while she was riding her bike on a city sidewalk. She sustained multiple serious injuries and required extensive hospital treatment and medical follow-up. Her claim against the other driver’s insurance company was resolved much to our satisfaction. Mr. Black has continued to help me with other legal matters and when my inquiries are not in areas in which he regularly practices, he has been very helpful in helping me to connect with other top professionals.

"I've known Bill Black for twenty years or so. He did the State Bar and lawyers here a great service when he helped bring the dormant Business Section of the Bar back to life, and he became Chair of that Section a few years ago. Bill is easy to work with and has a ton of experience in personal injury and med mal and car accident cases."
