About Bill

Bill received his Bachelors degree in history, with honors, from the University of Florida in 1985. In 1988, he received his law degree from the University of Florida College of Law, where he was a member of the school’s Moot Court team. He is admitted to the Florida Bar, the U.S. District Courts for the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida, and the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

After graduating, Bill went to work for the Orlando firm of Dempsey & Goldsmith, P.A., where he practiced commercial litigation. In 1990, he was hired by the national law firm of Baker & Hostetler, where he continued his commercial litigation practice and added the specialty of construction litigation. In 1993, he moved to the firm of Kelaher & Wieland, P.A., and entered the field of personal injury litigation. In 1995, Bill opened Sublette Law Offices, a firm concentrating in personal injury, wrongful death, and medical malpractice cases, and also handling health and disability claims and breach of contract claims.

Bill has always been active in politics. He served in the Florida House of Representatives from 1992 - 2000, and currently serves as Florida’s first elected School Board Chair. He is also active in his community, currently serving as President of the Central Florida Council of the Boy Scouts of America, and as a member of the Board of Directors for the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. His past community leadership roles include stints as the President of the Orange County Bar Association, Chairman of the Howard Phillips Center for Children & Families, Chairman of public broadcaster WMFE, Chair of the Orange County Jail Oversight Committee, Chair of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Education, and Chair of the local chapter of the American Cancer Society, as well as a host of other local leadership
positions. He is proudest, though, of his service as a guardian ad litem for more than 60 abused
or neglected children, and of his time spent coaching his kids’ YMCA soccer teams, Little League softball teams, and Pop Warner football teams.

Bill and his wife Suzie have two daughters, Alex (14) and Aubrey (10), and a son, Jack (9).
