Bar Admissions: CA
Will has been a staff attorney in Earthjustice’s California office since April 2008. Following graduation from Oberlin College, he worked for the National Wildlife Federation, the Pesticide Action Network and Greenpeace. After leaving Greenpeace, Will struggled to find the right niche and then took the well-trodden path to law school. He graduated cum laude from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 1996.
After three years at a boutique litigation firm that specialized in antitrust and class actions, Will returned to his environmental roots and spent five years working on environmental justice issues and challenging large industrial polluters as a staff attorney at Communities for a Better Environment. He then became senior attorney at the Center for Food Safety, litigating cutting-edge genetically engineered crop cases.
At Earthjustice, Will focuses on state law and regional approaches to energy and global warming issues.
