Bill Pedersen was born and raised in Nacogdoches, Texas.

He attended Texas Tech University, graduating in the spring of 1998, earning a Bachelor of Arts in History, with minors in Spanish and Philosophy.

He received a Juris Doctor from Baylor University School of Law, where he was admitted to the Order of Barristers, and served as a student assistant to the Professors administering the Practice Court program.

He was called upon by those professors to demonstrate different examples of courtroom advocacy for the next class.

Mr. Pedersen graduated from Baylor University School of Law on in 2001, and immediately began his work as an Assistant Criminal District Attorney in Collin County, at the age of 24.

During his approximately two and one-half year tenure in that office, Mr. Pedersen tried over sixty criminal jury trials to verdict.

In September of 2003, Mr. Pedersen left the Collin County Criminal District Attorney’s office to enter private practice.

Since that time Mr. Pedersen has managed criminal and civil litigation matters for a wide array of clients in both Texas and Federal courts.

Mr. Pedersen is admitted to practice before the United States District Courts of both the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Mr. Pedersen has managed complex litigation matters for foreign corporations, local businesses, and individuals in everything from traffic citations to murder investigations to complex financial conspiracies, in small collection matters to complex interstate litigation involving parties throughout the United States and Europe.

In April, 2010, Bill was selected by his peers as one of the Top Young Lawyers in Texas as published in Texas Monthly Magazine’s Super Lawyer and Rising Star Section.
