William R. Van Order

Born in Michigan, William R. Van Order moved with his family to Southern California in the early 1960s and grew up in Orange County. He earned his undergraduate degree in philosophy and political science in 1982 at Carroll College in Helena, MT and went on to attend Whittier College of Law back in Orange County. He passed the California state bar exam and was sworn in to practice in local federal courts in 1986. Attorney Van Order then began working for a law firm in Riverside, CA. A year later, he began his own law practice in Moreno Valley and soon expanded to Hemet, where he has been working for you ever since.

His practice first focused on real estate, estate planning, business law, and personal injury law. However, in 1990 he decided to work nearly exclusively with personal injury cases, seeking compensation from individuals and insurance companies.

Attorney Van Order is also a member of the Consumer Attorneys of California, an organization that fights for the rights of injury victims, including their right to a jury trial. He is also on the roster for Riverside Superior Court, where he serves as a court arbitrator.
