Bill earned his B.S. degree in Economics from Stetson University and his law degree from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William and Mary. 

Before attending law school, Bill worked in the insurance field which has provided him with a tremendous background for his legal practice. 

Bill joined Gordon, Dodson, Gordon & Rowlett in 2003. Gordon, Dodson, Gordon and Rowlett was fortunate to have Bill join us, because Bill has also worked at various firms in Chesterfield County over the years, and he is one of the most experienced attorneys practicing in the area.
