William English Middlie Line ABOUT BILL

I have traveled and lived in several countries as an expatriate American while working as an accountant.  I have been a resident of Abu Dhabi and have owned  foreign bank accounts in Nicosia, Cyprus and London, England.   I have had clients from numerous countries and have visited or worked in about 29 different countries in all the continents except the Antarctic. And I hope to visit your country as I have done with past clients.

I do love to climb mountains and race in mountain races here in Alaska.  Attached is a picture taken high in the Himalayas. 

Although I have enjoyed practicing law much more than being an accountant, what I learned as an accountant has made my ability to serve my legal clients with complex problems much easier.  I have taken that combination of licenses into a lot of different courts over the past 27 years. I have litigated cases in Federal District Court, State Superior and District Courts, Bankruptcy Court, Probate Court, Tax Court and Appellate Court Putting a case together for a public arena like a trial takes a lot of hard work and thought, even when you are familiar with the subject area.  Every case is different and has a slightly different set of facts that takes time and plain hard work to come to the right solution.  I have had good results with this approach over the years.
