A native of Dover New Hampshire, Bill has been practicing law throughout the State of New Hampshire for the last thirty five (35) years. In that thirty five years he’s had many challenging and rewarding achievements. He first started practicing in 1973 with a retired judge. The practice focused primarily on civil litigation. In addition, he became the City Attorney for the City of Somersworth. In 1977, President Carter asked him to serve as U.S. Attorney for the State of New Hampshire and he held that position for four (4) years. After that, in 1981, he opened his new practice with Steve Gordon and they have been partners ever since.

Bill has successfully tried many personal injury cases and divorce cases on behalf of his clients. He has received substantial monetary awards for his personal injury clients as well as obtaining favorable judgments for his divorce clients. In conjunction with his successful personal injury and divorce trial work, one of Bill’s great assets is his ability to negotiate. This ability has resulted in significant successes for his business and corporate clients in mergers and acquisitions, strategic planning and business formation. Bill continues to represent many local, regional and national multimillion dollar businesses.
