William “Bill” Klaess believes there is always room for improvement.  He works tirelessly to deliver the best results for his clients and conducts diligent investigations, tackling problems with innovative solutions.  

A native of the north suburbs of Chicago, Bill made his way south to Fort Worth for college where he attended Texas Christian University. After graduating with departmental honors in History, he attended SMU Dedman School of Law. There, Bill pursued unique legal experiences such as the Corporate Counsel Externship Program and the VanSickle Family Clinic. 

In his free time, Bill enjoys exercising, reading science fiction and fantasy, and going for walks with his two Yorkies.

The lawyers at Stanton LLP really listen to understand our business and seem to know what we are thinking about without us having to say it.
