Areas of Practice

Bill’s primary focus is business and estate planning for closely held businesses, their owners and families. He advises and assists on a wide range of individual and business matters, including business succession plans, acquisitions, business sale transactions and the ongoing legal needs of small businesses in a dynamic economy. Bill has been actively involved with numerous civic and charitable organizations. He joined the firm after graduating from law school in 1967.

Education and Experience

  • Martindale-Hubbell peer rating: AV Preeminent (highest rating)
  • Past Chair, Estate Planning Seminar Committee, Estate Planning Council of Portland

Subscribing to the philosophy that you should never walk when you can run, Bill has been an avid long-distance runner for over 30 years. During this time he has entered (and, yes, finished) 60 marathons and 3 ultras. He is also anxiously awaiting the arrival of an improved golf game. No luck yet.
