Matthew Wilson is consistently recognized as one of Georgia’s top young trial lawyers. He founded Wilson Law Firm to help victims of personal injury through what is often one of the most difficult periods of their lives.
Matthew has experience in all areas of personal injury litigation. He has worked for and trained with some of the top trial lawyers in the country, and his results speak for themselves. Matthew has recovered over $18.5 million for his clients in just the past five years.
Matthew also brings to the table his years of public service and political experience. After college, Matthew taught sixth-graders at an inner-city, low-income public school in Texas as part of the national Teach for America program. When he moved back to Georgia, he worked as a political consultant, helping the State Bar of Georgia successfully complete a twenty-five year effort to update Georgia’s rules of evidence.
In 2018, Matthew was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives, where he represents District 80.
