Wilson brings passion, hard work, and attention to detail to his clients. He focuses his practice on truck accidents and all other types of personal injury cases. He is recognized by Super Lawyers as a 2023 South Carolina Rising Star in Transportation Law, and by South Carolina Legal Elite for Personal Injury and Litigation.
As a defense attorney, Wilson learned how to practice law by working for trucking companies and their insurers. He was a member of a team of lawyers that served as national and regional counsel for several large motor carriers in cases involving serious injuries and death. Through that position, he handled all aspects of truck accident litigation—from rapid response evidence collection at the scene of the accident through closing arguments at trial. He now applies his experience to help people who have been injured by the negligence of another.
Licensed in both South Carolina and North Carolina, Wilson has several unique trainings which position him as a trucking accident attorney. He graduated from a 160 Hour Truck Driver Training Program in accordance with 49 CFR 380.503 and obtained a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). Additionally, he graduated from the Certified Director of Safety (CDS) course through the North American Transportation Management Institute (NATMI).
A graduate of The Citadel – The Military College of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina School of Law, Wilson served as a law clerk to the Honorable Judge Michael G. Nettles, Resident Judge and Chief Administrative Judge for the Twelfth Circuit (Florence and Marion Counties). Following that, he had the honor of serving as a law clerk to The Honorable Justice Garrison D. Hill during his tenure on the South Carolina Court of Appeals.
Wilson chose to become a lawyer with the Steinberg Law Firm to help people during the most difficult times of their lives. His strengths are a hard work ethic and attention to detail. He will tell anyone: “I refuse to be outworked by large companies and their attorneys. During my time as a defense lawyer, I learned that they place a higher value on profit margins than the lives and injuries of real people.”
While growing up, Wilson spent his summers working at his grandfather’s veterinary hospital cleaning out dog kennels. In high school and college, he worked in a hardware store and as a landscaping contractor. Those experiences made him appreciate hard work as he was required to contribute to the family while his peers were enjoying their free time. It also shaped his desire and passion to help people.
Family is very important to Wilson. He recently became an uncle and cherishes time with his niece. In his spare time, Wilson can be found enjoying all the outdoors has to offer, often with his dog Spanky.
