As a litigator, Will seeks to use his life experiences to gain the best outcomes for his clients. His training began well before law school, when he watched his father, a seasoned trial attorney, take great joy in litigating his clients’ matters to favorable results. After joining Reed Smith, Will was trained by a diverse group of attorneys who taught him not only the value of providing clients with a desirable end result, but also the importance of saving his clients time and money throughout the litigation process.
