I first met Will in 1987 when he was recommended to me and a contingent of officers after I asked the Executive Director of the National Association of Police Organizations who the best police labor attorney was. With no hesitation, the gentleman told us "Will Aitchison." We arranged a meeting, and after a short introductory meeting, a trip was arranged in which Will made a presntation to our Executive Board. He was hired on the spot. His guidance and legal expertise became invaluable to our organization as we wound up in court on issues such as binding arbitration, drug testing, and shift hours. We also negotiated several contracts in the most adverse labor environment imaginable. Will became as much consigliore as he was attorney, and to this day represents our union with a level of ethics, professionalism, and effectiveness that a once adversarial management team now considers a resource in dealing with complicated labor issues and matters of employee relations.
