William Arrington Pully, II
Real estate and corporate law attorney Will Pully joined the firm in 2017. Will practices primarily in the firm’s Commercial and Residential Real Estate, Business Law, Estate Planning, and Local Government sections. His greatest areas of concentration are in property tax foreclosures and real estate negotiations and closings.
A native of Rocky Mount and cradle Episcopalian, Will grew up in Raleigh and graduated from Virginia Episcopal School in Lynchburg, Va. Upon graduation from V. E. S., he attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and was a member of Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity. After a few years in Chapel Hill, he lived in Down East Carteret County, where he earned his captain’s license, certificates in marine propulsion and electrical systems, and worked as first mate on the 72-foot, gaff-rigged schooner Jeanie B, and as the Boatwright for Camp Sea Gull in Arapahoe, N. C. After knocking around the coast for a couple years, he earned his bachelor’s degree in history from U. N. C. – Wilmington, and eventually earned his law degree from Campbell Law School.
Upon graduation from law school, Will worked in New Bern as a criminal defense attorney where he defended clients from charges ranging from first degree murder to speeding. At Battle Winslow, Will has represented clients in multi-million dollar commercial real estate transactions, has recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for his clients through his collections and foreclosure work, and has assisted many clients with the formation of their businesses and in their estate planning. In a world filled with uncertainty, Will enjoys estate planning and tax foreclosures since death and taxes are the only certain things in life.
Will enjoys all the activities that make eastern North Carolina the greatest place to live: hunting, fishing, and Carolina basketball. He loves deer hunting with dogs and duck hunting in the swamps and on the coast. He also loves fishing for whatever is biting, from bass in the Little Alligator to bill fish in the Atlantic Ocean, and attending Carolina basketball and football games with his family.
