William Snead Managing Director

William Snead

I pride myself on being a partner to my clients, which means taking time to really get to know their current state, their needs and the challenges they face. Having that level of understanding allows me to find the best solution for them, which is especially enjoyable when that involves some outside the box thinking.

Bill is passionate about forming true partnerships with his clients and helping them achieve their strategic goals and tactical objectives. He works diligently to understand the challenges his clients face in an ever-changing legal market and helps them to fashion effective, custom-fitted talent management solutions.


Prior to joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Bill managed his own legal practice, focusing on special education law. He also worked with the Maryland Appointed Attorney Program, where he represented indigent clients at initial appearance hearings.
