Bill is generally defending public school districts, but he has also sued the State of New Jersey, the Department of Education, and major corporations on behalf of his clients.  He regularly appears in the District Court of New Jersey, the New Jersey Superior Court, the Public Employment Relations Commission, and the Office of Administrative Law. 

He is licensed to practice law in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey and has also been certified as both an arbitrator and mediator.
