L. William "Bill" Porter III
One of my favorite things about practicing law is being in court. I have spent over a year with a small, private firm handling bankruptcy and civil matters, 10+ years with a large, private firm practicing in area of bankruptcy and creditors’ rights and 3+ years as a trial attorney with the Department of Justice. My biggest strength as an attorney is confidence.
I have served as an adjunct professor in the Paralegal Studies program at Valencia College, teaching Introduction to Bankruptcy and Creditor Rights, for various semesters since 2011. If I had not chosen law as my profession, I would have pursued a career as a marine biologist. I’m a huge fan of FSU football. I volunteer with dog rescue groups and helped find homes for 15-20 dogs from fall 2014 to summer 2015.
