"A champion for the innocent."

"I was wrongly charged with a sexual offense in which the prosecutor wanted me to do prison time and register as sexual offender, even though I was innocent. Will took the prosecutor to the mat. On the eve of trial, the prosecutor knew Will was ready for trial and she could not win the case. She tried to sell me probation deal if I would confess to a crime I did not commit. Will believed in me and advised me to take the case to trial. The prosecutor dismissed the case. I know that if it wasn't for Will, I would have been railroaded into a plea or worse.” - Criminal Defense Client
