William H. Waring, III, grew up in Summerville, South Carolina, and obtained his undergraduate degree from Furman University in 1994. Following completion of his undergraduate studies, Will returned to Summerville, taught school, and was an assistant principal with Dorchester County School District Two. During this time, Will earned his master’s degree in Education Administration, summa cum laude, at The Citadel.

Although Will enjoyed a satisfying and productive career in education, in 2003 he decided to pursue a lifelong dream of becoming an attorney and enrolled at the Cumberland School of Law at Samford University. While at Cumberland, he served as the Writing Editor for the Cumberland Law Review and received his Juris Doctorate, cum laude, in 2006.

Following law school, Will worked as a law clerk for the Honorable Diane S. Goodstein, Circuit Court Judge for the First Judicial Circuit. Will began his career with a prominent local law firm, and over the course of his career gained a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience working on complex civil litigation cases, including the representation of several of the families of nine Charleston firefighters who were killed in the Sofa Superstore fire of 2007, as well as sexual abuse victims in a class-action lawsuit against the Catholic Diocese of Charleston. Will has also litigated a variety of personal injury cases with an emphasis of medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect, and wrongful death. Will has been recognized by his peers with the distinguished Martindale-Hubbell AV rating.

In September of 2021, Will joined Thurmond Kirchner & Timbes, P.A. in the Dorchester office, where he represents clients in personal injury cases, including medical malpractice, nursing home neglect, dram shop negligence (when a bar or restaurant violates alcohol liability laws), premises liability, wrongful death, and other cases where someone has suffered serious damages as a result of the negligence of another person(s), business entity, or governmental entity.

Will and his wife Molly, also from Summerville, live in their hometown with their three children, Wiley, Annesly, and Blakely.
