Bill is, by anyone’s description, one of the best plaintiff’s litigators in the country. He began his significant mark on the legal
landscape by bringing the first suit against the Boy Scouts of America that did not settle out of court but went to trial—a landmark
case that helped to break open the field of psychological injury. He went on to become the first attorney to sue the Vatican for sexual
abuse by the clergy. Then he authored the book on psychological injury, sharing his knowledge and experience to the benefit of
countless lawyers and their injured clients. He has practiced law for 40 years, continuing to try difficult and challenging cases, while
remaining highly active in the professional community, serving on many boards, writing, and teaching. He has lectured on trial
advocacy in 35 states and four countries, and testified as an expert witness in legal malpractice cases.
