Will Hedrick

Attorney, Managing Partner, & Owner

Will is an avid automotive enthusiast born and raised in Wake Forest, North Carolina.  He has owned, and continues to own, numerous Land Rover vehicles and he has experience in restoring a Defender from the ground up. Will is most well known for his pro bono representation of 40+ owners of imported Land Rover Defenders in the case of United States v. Land Rover Vehicles, et. al. (Case No. 5:14-CV-00034-F, EDNC) and his pro bono representation in the case of CW4 Charles William Overby, Jr. v. United States  (Case No. 1:16-CV-00178, USCIT).

After graduating college and before going to law school, Will spent 5-years working with the Land Rover Carolinas Group, an authorized Land Rover retailer chain, whereupon he received training from Land Rover North America and it's Land Rover University in Lanham, Maryland.  During that time, he achieved Gold level certification as a Land Rover Sales Guide.  Will was also a senior member of the staff at Land Rover Hilton Head when it earned and received the Pinnacle Award from Land Rover North America in 2004. He also won several competitions and awards during his time at Land Rover and he competed in Land Rover TReK Colorado 2003, with he and his teammates placing 2nd in their semi-finals.  In November 2003, Will had the distinction of being the Land Rover Sales Guide to sell the last new Land Rover Defender 90 in the United States, #300/300, a 1997 Willow Green Limited Edition Defender 90, which the dealer had retained from new.  It was sold under full-warranty with a letter from Land Rover validating its legitimacy.

Will has visited the Land Rover factory in Solihull, UK on several occasions and has toured the Defender assembly lines, as well as the production lines for Range Rover, and other Land Rover models.  Will has also toured Land Rover's Research and Design facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK and he was one of the first US retailer representatives to view the LR3 before its public launch in 2005.  He has also been a guest of Land Rover's Driving Experience at Eastnor Castle.
