We have over twenty-five years of combined experience, and we know that each client deserves personalized and prompt legal service. When you call Smith & Jones Law, you will talk directly to a lawyer.

Being lawyers provides us with the opportunity to help others and to make a difference for those in need. People are often hurt through no fault of their own. You may be faced with not only devastating injuries, but also with the corresponding medical bills and lost wages due to not being able to work, and with the emotional stress and scars from being injured. We take pride in helping clients understand their rights and will work diligently to get you fairly compensated for what has happened. We are on your side. We believe in making those who refuse to take responsibility for their actions accountable.

He works on various type of cases with his primary focus being on representing those injured in automobile accidents, by dangerous products, or while on an unsafe premise. He also represents those seeking Social Security Disability, those who have been falsely arrested/imprisoned, those who have been injured at work or those who are seeking a simple divorce based upon one year of continuous separation. He also serves clients by drafting Simple Wills and Powers of Attorney.

Bill was born in Ohio and spent his childhood moving due to his father’s twenty plus years serving our country in the U.S. Army. Being a military dependent provided Bill the opportunity to interact with people of varying backgrounds and cultures. These experiences helped him to understand the importance of communicating with and understanding others. He takes pride in communicating with his clients and in understanding their needs and everything they are going through so that he may better serve them as their attorney. His family taught him the meaning of discipline and hard work, which he now applies in his practice of serving others.

The greatest moment of his life was the birth of his daughter, Kylie. He has learned that great satisfaction in life comes from helping others. He is proud of being a lawyer and being able to help others. He is even prouder to be a trial lawyer who represents people rather than companies.

He attended Indiana University where he obtained his Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1994. He is also a proud graduate of the University of South Carolina School of Law where he obtained his Juris Doctorate Degree in 1999.
