William Fletcher
 

Will has a litigation practice with an emphasis on representing insurance carriers, their insureds, and self-insured entities against liability claims. Will’s experience has included providing for the defense in all manners of general liability, bodily injury, professional liability and malpractice, workers’ compensation, construction defect, and defective product claims.

Will began his legal career as a deputy prosecutor for the Canyon County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, where he managed a large felony and misdemeanor caseload consisting of illegal drug, firearm, DUI, and traffic offenses. It was there that Will obtained significant trial experience, taking 20 cases before a jury. He also regularly provided training to law enforcement on search and seizure, Fifth Amendment, and criminal procedure topics. Will continues to devote a portion of his practice to criminal law, defending clients who face charges in federal and state court. Will also applies his criminal law expertise to criminal issues which overlap civil litigation matters, such as court-ordered restitution and self-incrimination.

Prior to entering college, Will served as a petty officer in the United States Navy, and was stationed on the aircraft carrier U.S.S. John C. Stennis (CVN-74).
