Bill is an Associate Attorney at The Law Offices of David L. Carrier, P.C. His primary responsibility is meeting with families to design an estate plan that meets their goals and preserves their hard-earned life savings. Prior to joining the firm, Bill had his own practice, and helped many mutual clients with guardianships and conservatorships. He observed first-hand the positive impact the firm has on people’s lives with planning, expert legal strategies, and a compassionate and committed team.
Bill grew up on his parent’s 120-acre farm in Ravenna, Michigan. Since he was big enough to hold a pitch fork William helped with making hay for his parent’s beef and dairy cattle, planted, picked, and sold sweet corn and other produce at farmer’s markets and door-to-door throughout West Michigan. As a teenager, he bought his first computer with money he made raising and selling cattle along with his brother. William and his siblings are the third generation of Bereza who have worked on the farm.
William received a Bachelor’s Degree with Honors in Computer Science from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, MI, and a Juris Doctorate Magna Cum Laude from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Grand Rapids, MI.
He is an amateur photographer, software developer, has hiked across northern Spain on a pilgrimage to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela; studied International Human Rights Law at National University of Ireland, Galway; and worked as a course marshal for the Sports Car Club of America.
William is currently raising two lovely children with his beautiful wife in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
