As the first Section Chief of the Florida Attorney General’s Cyberfraud Section, Will gained national renown for a first-of-its-kind enforcement effort that resulted in new standards for wireless billing of third-party mobile content and products. The regulation of this practice, known then as “cramming,” has changed dramatically since that enforcement effort. For this effort, the state of Florida awarded Will the top individual Davis Productivity Award in 2009, recognizing his work to obtain millions of dollars in refunds for Florida consumers from wireless carriers.
As an attorney for the City of Tallahassee, Will litigated employment and civil rights cases, handled administrative bid protests, contractor delay and modification claims, and other civil matters. During this tenure, he successfully tried cases before juries and judges in the Second Judicial Circuit and handled appeals before the First District Court of Appeals.
While in private practice, Will has obtained class certification on behalf of a nationwide class of affected consumers against two national online ad networks. This case was notable for the evidentiary use of computer source code for online tracking and legal standing purposes.
Will received his undergraduate degree from St. Andrews Presbyterian College and his law degree from Memphis State University. He and his wife Lori have lived in Tallahassee for 22 years.
