William “Bill” Whitenack began his legal career in 1998 as an Investigator for the Washington D.C. Public Defender’s office, gathering evidence to assist the Public Defender with criminal cases.
In 2002, after graduating law school, Bill joined the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office as an Assistant District Attorney. During that time, he prosecuted criminal cases from misdemeanors, such as drug possession and domestic violence, to felonies, such as drug dealing and robberies.
In 2009, Bill joined the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office in the Family Violence unit. While there, Bill prosecuted cases from inception through trial.
By 2016, Bill chose to dedicate himself to defending those who have been charged with crimes.

In fact, Bill has defended hundreds of clients, starting from the time of arrest all the way through trial.
