Builders, developers and construction industry professionals hire Bill when they need a creative litigator who can not only solve their legal disputes, but also help avoid them in the first place. Indeed, clients like working with Bill because  his preventative approach  reduces their risk for future legal conflicts, ultimately saving them time and money.

Throughout his career, Bill has represented and advised homebuilders and land developers, both national and local, as well as other construction entities and professionals such as owners, contractors, architects, engineers and subcontractors.  He uses his extensive knowledge and skills to assist clients in cases involving contract compliance/breach (including bulk/lot purchase agreement disputes, customer outsale contracts and contractor agreements), mechanic's lien, delay, defect, EIFS (synthetic stucco), mold, fraud and consumer protection.

The wins he has achieved for his clients have ranged in size and scope from post-closing customer warranty disputes to multi-million dollar disputes with condominium unit owners' associations. Outside of the litigation arena, Bill has drafted, reviewed and negotiated contracts and consumer disclosure documents, and engaged various forms of dispute avoidance avenues to effect positive outcomes for his clients. In addition to his client counsel and representation, Bill also volunteers his time acting as a conciliator for the Fairfax County Circuit Court, working on projects for Habitat for Humanity, and acting as a judge for collegiate mock trial competitions.
