Attorney & Staff

We believe that litigation should not be an end in itself, but rather should be just one possible alternative in a process that leads to a prompt and economically sensible resolution of a dispute. We spend considerable time counseling clients on avoidance of litigation and we consistently seek creative ways to resolve the actions they become involved in as quickly as possible.

The firm’s goal is to provide high quality, big firm, legal expertise and services in a comfortable, small firm atmosphere. Bill Wray and his staff will meet with you, develop your case fully, and explain their methods for achieving full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
