William Peterson


Will is a strong and successful advocate for the interests of his clients at BWS. His broad range of legal experience makes him highly effective in helping his clients achieve the best results possible in the difficult circumstances they confront. His clients appreciate that he is always friendly with them, returns their phone calls, keeps them informed about their case, and always treats them with respect. He is not afraid to take tough cases and has tried multiple cases to a jury verdict, including one in which it took the jury less than nine minutes to find in his client’s favor.

Will stays up-to-date on the ever-changing law by serving as a reporter for the Missouri Bar's Courts Bulletin publication, where he reviews all personal injury and tort law decisions of the Missouri Court of Appeals, Southern District. Will's clients benefit from the knowledge he gains in this position. Will practices in both state and federal court. In 2014 and again in 2015, members of the Jasper County Bar Association voted to make Will the treasurer of the organization. Prior to moving with his family to Joplin, Will served on The Jefferson City Salvation Army Advisory Board, which was composed of community-minded people who advised the Army regarding its work in the area.
