Sonny Wills, who has been with the firm for one year, is a lawyer in the firm’s Mass Torts Section. Currently, Sonny is heavily involved in the ongoing Xarelto Multi-District Litigation. Xarelto is a member of a new class drugs known as Novel Oral Anticoagulants and it has been linked to severe and often uncontrollable internal bleeding events. Unlike Warfarin (Coumadin), there is no way to reverse Xarelto’s anticoagulant effect. Uncontrollable internal bleeding can quickly lead to catastrophic injuries, including death.
Sonny, the Xarelto bridge lawyer, has duties including answering any of our staff and legal assistants’ questions and working with them to keep our clients updated. He also answers our clients’ questions and helps to evaluate each client’s medical records to determine if they have a valid claim.
Sonny also helps in the drafting of the Xarelto-related Complaints and Motions. He participates in document review and answers any questions our referring lawyers might have. Sonny also provides outside lawyers with information concerning the MDL process and procedures. When necessary, he helps to locate lawyers to open estates for our clients. Sonny works directly with Andy Birchfield and David Byrne to effectuate their plans and is currently very involved in the Xarelto Bellwether discovery process.
Sonny is a 2005 graduate of The University of Alabama Culverhouse College of Commerce with a Major in Management and a minor in Political Science and History. He graduated from Birmingham School of Law in 2010. In 2014, Sonny was selected as a Rising Star by the Super Lawyers Group.
Sonny and his wife Meredith just celebrated their second wedding anniversary. They have a 14 month-old daughter named Townson. They just recently moved to Montgomery, where they both grew up. They first met in middle school and are both graduates of the University of Alabama. Both of their families still reside in the Montgomery area. The Willis family attends First Baptist Church in Montgomery.
Sonny enjoys the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing. Sonny says he and his father have hunted whitetail deer, quail, and dove together since he was a child. According to Sonny, he is most passionate about bass fishing – his largest catch to date reportedly is an 11.5-pound largemouth bass, which I hear is proudly mounted and on display at the Prattville Bass Pro Shop! Sonny says he lives and breathes Crimson Tide football. Family trips to the zoo and his grandparent’s farm in Butler County are also a favorite. We are fortunate to have Sonny with us. Incidentally, his great-grandfather was Mr. Sonny Orr, a legend in Barbour County, but so far I haven’t heard our Sonny throw his voice.
