Will has practiced extensively in the areas of family and domestic relations law since 2009.  A graduate of the University of Mississippi School of Law, Will chose to focus his practice on domestic law following his enrollment in a child advocacy clinic where he was sworn in to practice as a Guardian ad Litem as a third year law student. Will works to develop meaningful relationships with his clients and opposing counsel, and he believes that a calm and reasonable approach to the practice of law is essential to successful resolution of domestic cases. Will recognizes that LGBT clients often face unique challenges in family law related issues, and Will brings several years of experience in representing LGBT family law clients - both before and after the landmark Obergefell marriage decision.
