Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Will is a consummate professional. He was extremely prepared and essentially left me no room to maneuver. However, he did this with class, and he earned my respect in the process. I highly recommend him; and hope, for my client's sake, I don't have to go against him in the future.
