"Bill served as NACDL’s president from 1999 to 2000. He also served as president of the Virginia College of Criminal Defense Lawyers, now the Virginia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, a NACDL affiliate organization. He was a member of the bars of Virginia and the District of Columbia, the Alexandria (Va.) Bar Association, the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, and the International Association of Criminal Lawyers."
Bill, in addition to handling many high-profile cases, was also a voice for constituencies that needed a voice. (see here). He testified before Congress against mandatory minimum sentences (see here), he fought against racial injustice (see here), and always aimed for a just and fair system (see here). And despite his incredibly busy schedule, he found the time to stop and speak to law students so that they could learn from his accomplishments. He will be missed.
