William N. Woodson, III

(of Counsel)

Bill WoodsonAbout Bill

After a substantial time practicing civil litigation in some of the busiest trial courts in the country, Bill moved to Texas to be near his daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter. A graduate of Stanford University and Golden Gate University Law School, and former law school professor at Trinity Law School, Mr. Woodson now focuses his broad experience on mediation, mentoring, coaching and peacemaking in both civil and criminal litigation cases and church related disputes.
Bill acted as a settlement conference judge in the civil courts, became certified in mediation in both California and Texas, belongs to the Austin Mediators’ Association and the Texas Association of Mediators, and volunteers his mediation services at the Austin Dispute Resolution Center. Bill sits on the Board of Directors of the Austin Dispute Resolution Center, the Austin Mediators’ Association and Gateway Church.
Bill has extensive experience in both criminal and civil litigation, from the trial courts through the appellate courts, in both the state and federal systems, the civil experience ranging from employment law matters, wrongful termination cases, property and personal taxation disputes, and real estate and business litigation.
Bill lives in Cedar Park, Texas with his wife Sue, and enjoys music, especially the blues and classical music. (Bill believes Hendrix and Beethoven would have gotten on famously.)  Bill also enjoys dabbling in art, meaning doodling and artful stick figures, and volunteering at local non-profit organizations.
