Will Pryor is married to Ellen Smith Pryor, Professor of Law at the UNT Dallas College of Law. Will and Ellen are the proud parents of Lindsey, a young lawyer in Dallas , and Emily, soon to receive a graduate degree in Social Work from Columbia University. Will was born in Arkansas, grew up in Dallas, and attended public schools in Dallas and Richmond, Virginia, before his opportunity to serve during his final two years of high school as a congressional page in the United States House of Representatives.

During Will's senior year, at the height of the "Watergate era", he served as the Speaker's Page, the personal page to the Speaker of the House of Representatives (Honorable Carl Albert, Dem.-Oklahoma). As an undergraduate at Yale University, Will was both the Chairman of the student government organization, the Yale College Council, and Captain of the varsity baseball team.
