The Basics: What is an Appeal?


Paying Forward: New Hampshire Domestic Violence and Stalking Petitions

William volunteers for the New Hampshire Domestic Violence Emergency (DOVE) Project. The DOVE Project refers victims of domestic violence or stalking for emergency legal services. In addition to aiding those who otherwise would be unrepresented, William maintains active trial skills to aid his appellate practice by undertaking these short-term cases based upon his availability.


William also accepts domestic violence and stalking petition referrals from the New Hampshire Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service full-fee and modest means programs. Referrals can be provided fee-based services on either sides of a domestic violence or stalking petition action.
