After completing high school, Bill graduated from Purdue University in West Lafayette with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. The craft of writing has served as a wonderful asset in crafting legal pleadings and arguments. While attending Purdue University, Bill met his future wife Nancy at Indiana Central. The couple married in 1983. In 1985, Bill received his J.D. from the Indiana University School of Law in Indianapolis.
Following law school, Bill worked as the Deputy Attorney General under Lindley Pearson, gaining priceless experience for both his law career and future political aspirations. He also opened a solo practice and rented an office from the senior Haggerty partners. After noticing Bill’s work ethic, Jay B. Haggerty recruited Bill to become a partner in the law firm. The firm became Haggerty, Haggerty and Maschmeyer in 1987.Bill works tirelessly for his clients, the firm, and the community.
Serving clients in their legal matters is a tremendous privilege. I greatly appreciate the trust placed in me and this firm by clients when we are retained for their matter. Clients expect, and deserve, attorneys who will do their utmost in attempting to achieve their objectives.
I believe that an important part of being an effective attorney involves carefully listening to client concerns, and asking the right question to help clients understand their objectives. Once these objectives are understood, I help clients develop a strategy based on their objectives, and identify, when possible, various course of action that can be taken.
I also understand the concern that most clients have with seeking to minimize the fees and costs incurred in their matter, and am mindful of the factors that clients use in measuring success.
