Will began his legal career in 1992 at the firm of Arter & Hadden in Cleveland where he handled hundreds of cases from case commencement to conclusion. He has extensive experience in business litigation and concentrates much of his current practice in construction, real estate, business agreements, and other business-related torts. Will is also experienced in matters regarding product liability, insurance defense, non-competition agreements, environmental compliance, collection, estate planning and manufacturing disputes. In addition to representing clients before administrative agencies, he has also appeared before multiple state and federal appellate courts. Will previously served as National Coordinating and Trial Counsel for a major medical products manufacturer and his prior caseload includes representation of the Cleveland Indians.
During law school, Will served as Articles Editor and executive board member of the Cleveland State Law Review. He also represented CSU in several national moot court competitions and served on the executive committee of the Cleveland State Moot Court Board of Governors. Will is a proud product of St. Edward High School.
In addition to almost 25 years of legal experience, Will teaches graduate and undergraduate courses at several universities and is currently a Senior Lecturer at the University of Akron. His teaching areas include business law, legal ethics, bargaining and conflict management, administrative law, constitutional law, government and criminal justice.
Born and raised in Cleveland, Will and his wife Debbie moved to Medina in 1992. Tours with the Grateful Dead were seamlessly replaced with three children now aged 19, 22 and 24. However, his 1978 Volkswagen Microbus remains a stubborn fourth child and has served as the family camper, cross-country RV, and the daily-driver of almost every family member. The transition from coaching baseball to an approaching empty nest has left Will with some additional time to focus on paying college tuition.
