Patrick “Pat” Wilson was born and raised in Miami, Florida. Since becoming an attorney, he has developed a reputation as a fierce trial lawyer who is willing not only to take difficult cases, but is also more than capable of winning them.
After graduating law school, Patrick worked as an Assistant Public Defender at the Miami-Dade Public Defender’s Office for six years representing those accused of crimes who could not afford legal help.
Because of his experience, prior to entering private practice, Patrick became a training attorney where he taught new lawyers how to try criminal cases.
Prior to founding Patrick Wilson Law, PLLC, Patrick tried 75 cases as an Assistant Public Defender or a member of the private bar, throughout Miami-Dade, Broward, and West Palm Beach Counties. He has handled cases ranging from possession of marijuana to murder and has consistently obtained not guilty verdicts for clients, even when it seems they faced impossible odds.
Patrick has and continues to give continuing legal education courses to other lawyers on topics such as jury selection, cross examination, defending sex offenses, fingerprints, and DNA.
In 2022, remaining true to his public defender roots, Patrick was selected as panel member for the CJA of the Southern District of Florida.
In addition to practicing law, Patrick enjoys boating, diving, playing tennis and basketball, and spending time with his wife, son, and two dogs.
