William C. Westfall

William was admitted to the Illinois bar in 2011.  He earned his J.D. from the Northern Illinois University College of Law (2011) and his B.A. in English from the University of Notre Dame (2008).  During law school, William was an associate justice of the Moot Court Society.  He also spent a summer in France, studying the European Union, and civil law generally, as opposed to common law. And during his last year there, he drove to Rockford each week to work at the school's legal aid clinic representing indigent victims of domestic violence.  In 2020, William became Of Counsel to the firm.

Prior to joining RSG, William represented more than a dozen units of local government as corporate counsel, various small businesses, and regularly assisted clients with residential real estate transactions, and criminal and immigration matters, all with a focus on litigation.  He is also an arbitrator, as well as an administrative law judge.  William leverages this experience in the areas of commercial, municipal and general tort litigation.

Finally, William is active in the local community.  He has served years on the Board of Directors for Head Start, the Notre Dame Alumni Association, held different positions for the Bar Associations, Ducks Unlimited and the National Wild Turkey Federation, among others.
