“Will has proven to be a major asset to our firm and our clients over the 18 months that we have known and worked closely with him. My fellow partners and I value attorneys like Will who have a solid work ethic, a desire to learn and grow, and a passion for helping others through the legal profession,” commented Laureen F. Bagley, partner with The Sloan Firm.

He also provided briefing and consultative services for plaintiffs’ firms in California, Oklahoma and Texas in 2011.
King earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Texas State University in San Marcos in August 2007 and a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from Baylor University School of Law in February 2011.
While attending law school, King won first place and became the champion of the Dawson & Sodd Moot Court Competition in 2008 and the Naman Howell Client Counseling Competition in 2010.

He continues to support this initiative as an alumnus. King recently volunteered his time and talent at a free back-to-school event sponsored by The Sloan Firm and hosted by El Centro de Corazón in Houston.
