A native of Dummerston, Vermont, Will is a graduate of Yale University (history) and received his law degree in 1992 from the University of New Mexico School of Law. He began his law career as a litigator, as one of only two associates working with the nationally recognized trial lawyer, Randi McGinn, in Albuquerque, NM. His trial lawyer practice focused on wrongful death, catastrophic injury, employment discrimination and insurance bad faith litigation. For eight additional years, Will operated his own firm and expanded his specialties to include business transactions, business formation, commercial litigation, and providing lawsuit defense services for his business clients. Will's litigation experience includes bench and jury trials in state and federal courts, as well as extensive appellate work. Will is a frequently invited lecturer in the area of litigation graphics and technology for groups such as the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Illinois Cook County Public Defender's Office Capital Crimes Division and the Office of Defender Services for the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts.
Will returned to Vermont with his family and joined Ward & Babb in February of 2006. His practice continues to focus on civil litigation and business transactions. In his free time, Will loves to snowboard and read, expanding on his passion for Vermont history that began when he wrote his Yale senior thesis on Ira Allen's revolutionary war negotiations with British General Frederick Haldimand.
Will is licensed in Vermont and New Mexico.
