Bill In The News

Bill on CBS News
Bill Hepner was on CBS News sharing his views on the risks of selling recalled products at yard sales. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is behind a new law that states that if you sell a product that has been recalled, not only is it illegal, but you could be held responsible and sued.

Justice requires that the rights of the individual not be ignored. Those individuals who cannot afford representation should not be denied access to the legal system. As a personal injury lawyer, I am proud to provide access to those who have been injured through the negligence of others.

About William Hepner

Bill joined WRSH as a trial lawyer in 1998 and has tried and litigated numerous automobile, premises, medical malpractice and construction accident cases.

In addition to his responsibilities as one of the firm's trial lawyers, Bill is a member of the American Judge's Association and is an Arbitrator in the Small Claims Court in Manhattan. He decides disputes between parties who desire an expeditious resolution to their cases and agree to have their matters decided by an arbitrator. Bill is charged with fairly and judiciously resolving these disputes and his decisions are final.

Bill is a member of the New York State Trial Lawyer's Association, the American Association for Justice and the New York State Bar Association. Bill has also been selected as a Super Lawyer, an honor which represents true recognition of accomplishment in the field by one's peers.

Bill graduated magna cum laude in 1983 from the State University of New York at Albany, and received his J.D. degree in 1991 from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he was Editor-In-Chief of Cardozo's international law journal, the Cardozo New Europe Law Review. He attended Cardozo after a career that included corporate sales and restaurant management, as well as professional singing. His diverse experience, prior to his many years of practicing law, gives him added insight into the make-up of juries and those he represents. Bill's calm and unflappable demeanor in court gives him credibility with jurors, and allows him to withstand the rigors of trial without losing focus.
