About William

William is an Eagle Scout, class of 1990, and a board member of the Las Vegas Area National Eagle Scout Association. He is also the General Counsel for the Silent Heroes of the Cold War Memorial Committee. William Devine holds extensive experience in consumer bankruptcy law and debt collections law, as well as intellectual property matters. In April 2014, William started his own firm, Devine Law Firm PLLC, with one other attorney and three staff members to shift the focus of his practice towards helping more individuals and consumers directly. The new firm expands the areas of practice that William provides his clients adding personal injury and family law services to his bankruptcy, real estate, asset protection, and civil litigation practice. Prior to Devine Law Firm, William was a named partner in the law firm of Rainey Devine. After joining Rainey Legal Group, which changed its name to Rainey Devine, William was critical in expanding the firm from two attorneys to a five attorney firm that handled both consumer and corporate work. Prior to joining Rainey Devine, William was an associate attorney in the Intellectual Property practice group of Armstrong Teasdale, a nearly 300 attorney firm with offices throughout the country. During that time, William practiced exclusively in the area of patent prosecution in the electrical, computer science, and electro‑mechanical technology arts. William has drafted numerous patent applications and has successfully prosecuted and obtained multiple patents for such clients as General Electric, Washington University, and BHA Group. Other firm clients have included inventors from India, China, Scotland, England, and of course the United States. While in law school, William worked for 2 1/2 years as a law clerk for a Las Vegas general practice attorney and gained experience in a multitude of practice areas, include civil litigation, family law, real estate, and self-insurance for worker's compensation matters. William also managed the day-to-day operations of the attorney's tax audit defense practice. Also, while in law school, William gained significant exposure to bankruptcy practice, while serving as a judicial extern to the Honorable Linda B. Riegle of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Nevada. Prior to becoming an attorney, William was a technology consultant in the emerging Internet industry, and held various technical management and executive positions with multiple technology start-ups in and around Houston, Texas during the nineties. William uses his vast technology experience to improve the efficiency of his practice and client communication. William remains an active participant in the UNLV/Boyd Alumni association and has spoken multiple times for the UNLV MBA New Ventures Management course speaking to the business aspects of intellectual property law. William is also an active tribal member of the Eastern Shawnee of Oklahoma, serving on the Tribe's Constitutional Review Committee.
