Wilson focuses on land use and zoning matters, frequently appearing before planning and zoning commissions, zoning boards of appeals, and inland wetlands and watercourses commissions. He files and argues applications for variances, special permits, zoning certificates of compliance, subdivisions, zone changes, and inland wetlands permits with a demonstrated history of success. Wilson is also a versatile general litigator with a focus on administrative appeals, appellate advocacy, intellectual property, and small claims.

As a former clerk of the Connecticut Appellate Court and legal intern at the United States District Court in Bridgeport, Wilson offers his unique perspective and sharp writing skills to help his clients navigate through all levels of the Connecticut judicial system. Through his work at the Quinnipiac University School of Law Civil Justice Clinic, Wilson represented underserved clients in various post-conviction proceedings including petitions for habeas corpus and motions to correct illegal sentences.  Passionate about election reform and voting rights as a law student, Wilson testified in front of the Connecticut General Assembly in support of felony disenfranchisement reforms.  As a former publication editor for the Quinnipiac Law Review, Wilson has also advocated for the abolishment of prison gerrymandering in Connecticut.
