DALLAS, Monday, April 6 – William Craven has been named Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program's (DVAP) Volunteer of the Month for the month of April. The Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program recruits, trains, and supports volunteer attorneys to provide free, civil legal help to low-income people in Dallas County, Texas. DVAP volunteers provide advice and full representation in a variety of cases, including family, housing, landlord-tenant, real property, consumer, wills, expunctions and non-disclosures, probate, and more.
Will first got involved with pro bono after joining Cozen O’Connor in October 2015. Helping those during their most trying times get back on their feet and make the life they seek is the number one reason Will chose to do pro bono. “Others outside of the field might have preconceived notions or stigmas about attorneys that are not always pleasant. Engaging in pro bono work, and speaking to others in my network about that work, has allowed me to correct some of these misinformed opinions,” Will explains.
Will is a member of Cozen O’Connor, focusing his practice on national litigation, insurance coverage, and regulatory matters. Merging business and government knowledge, litigation, and coverage experience, Will offers an uncommon perspective to his clients. Will’s litigation experience includes complex insurance coverage and bad faith matters involving professional liability, casualty and specialty, and commercial property policies issued by domestic and international insurers. Will also represents insureds and self-insureds in commercial and business litigation, including breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, tortious interference, and fraud lawsuits.
