David R. Wilson
Senior Associate Attorney
"I was born and raised in rural Texas, where, at an early age, I became an advocate for truth and justice. I began my professional career in law enforcement, where I served the community as a police officer. After 15 years, I felt compelled to help individuals in a more hands-on approach. So, I returned to school to earn my law degree. Since becoming a Texas attorney, I have been able to help those seeking truth and justice.
After several years of general law practice, I found that representing people with their family law matters was more rewarding and that I could serve a greater number of people by practicing in family law matters.
As a child, my father instilled in me the values and principles of the Golden Rule. I have practiced those in my personal and professional interactions with all. As a family law attorney, I vigorously advocate for my clients while delivering hands-on, compassionate, and personal service."
David R. Wilson is an experienced Family Law Attorney and an experienced Civil Litigator, with both trial experience and general counsel experience. In addition to being a licensed Texas attorney, he is a Forensic Computer and eDiscovery expert and a former white-collar criminal detective. David has represented clients in local, State, and Federal matters.
David has a personal penchant for helping people, which he has also adopted in his professional careers in law enforcement and now as a family law attorney. Born and raised to a humble family in the Texas Hill Country, David believes and adheres to the principles of the Golden Rule: Treat Others As You Would Have Them Treat You, With Dignity and Respect.
“David is a straight shooter; he will always be honest with you and tells it like it is. He will bend over backward to help people in need. He is truly someone that you can rely on.”
