Five Tips for a More Effective Motion Practice

Pretrial Practice & Discovery

Lewis Rice member Robert J. Will published an article in Pretrial Practice & Discovery Section of Litigation stipulating five tips essential for a more effective motion practice.

Bob Will advises clients on matters related to class action litigation, trust and estate litigation, professional liability, and condemnation. He is a Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, an honorary organization of lawyers, judges, and legal scholars whose careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the welfare of their communities and to the highest principles of the legal profession.
