"Where there is a Will, there is a way"
My name is William but most people know me as Will. I was born in Peru and immigrated to the United States in 2007. I grew up in a Spanish speaking home along with my parents and two brothers. From personal experience, I can understand and relate to my client's struggles in adjusting to a new way of life and having to learn a new language.
I have proudly called Hudson county and New Jersey my home since 2007. I graduated from North Bergen High school in 2009 and then from New Jersey City University in 2013 with a double major in Criminal Justice and Political Science. In 2013, I was awarded a full scholarship to pursue a Master's program at Nanjing Normal University in Nanjing, China. In 2015, I relocated to North Dakota to attend Law School at the University of North Dakota (UND). While in law school, I represented clients before the Immigration court as part of the UND Immigration law clinic, helped clients with criminal charges as an intern at the Hudson County Public Defender's Office in New Jersey, and was a law clerk to the Honorable Minnesota District Court Judge Eric Schieferdecker. After graduating from law school in 2018, I worked as a faculty/staff for the Housing Department at UND. In 2019, I went back to school to become a Private Pilot after being inspired by my many friends and students who were studying to become airlines pilots.
I joined the Law Office of Roddy Q. Bolanos as an Attorney in 2020, although I had previously worked here as a receptionist and as a legal assistant since 2009. I am thankful for the many clients I met since 2009. As a lawyer, it is my goal to fight for and improve the lives of my clients and their families, but more importantly to develop the very same community that has welcomed me with open arms and supported me in every step of my journey.
