William Hepner joined WRSH as a trial lawyer in 1998 and has tried and litigated numerous automobile, premises, medical malpractice and construction accident cases. As an arbitrator in small claims court Bill decides disputes between parties who desire an expeditious resolution to their cases and agree to have their matters decided by an arbitrator.
Bill is charged with fairly and judiciously resolving these disputes and his decisions are final. Bill graduated magna cum laude in 1983 from the State University of Albany, and received his J.D. degree in 1991 from the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law, where he was Editor-In-Chief of Cardozo’s international law journal, the Cardozo New Europe Law Review.
