WRS Announces New Partners

We are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2005, William P. Hepner has become a partner at the firm.

William P. HepnerBill joined WRS as a trial lawyer in 1998 and has tried and litigated numerous significant automobile, premises and construction accident cases. Bill graduated magna cum laude in 1983 from the State University of New York at Albany, and received his J.D. degree 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. Bill graduated Cardozo in 1991, after a career which included sales, as well as professional singing. His experience prior to law gives him an 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. He has also been successful over the years in developing novel theories of liability to withstand the defense bar's unrelenting attempts to keep plaintiffs from having their day in court.

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