I met Mr. Wilson at a low point in my life. I was just reduced to state minimums for child custody after being misled and shook down by the worst of all attorneys (reference Seth Schwartz Jacksonville, Fl). I was left broken and beaten. I had always had 50/50 custody. My daughter was upset and called it a "nightmare."
I was told his firm was ethical and fair. I was skeptical at best. Thankfully I met Mr. Wilson that day because he was more than I expected. And I expected a lot after what happened prior. He reviewed the docket and comfirmed my worst fear. I had been represented by a shakedown artist. However, Mr. Wilson developed a strategy and only asked me to be patient while we went through the process. He was always professional and fair. He was always responsive. Most importantly, he made me believe again in the power of a good, honest attorney. He never fell for the opposing attorney's games which only bring more disdain between the sides while fattening the pockets of attorneys. His fees were reasonable and I would have paid more knowing what I know now (no need to tell him that one).
Mr. Wilson was able to get me all my time back and much faster than anticipated originally. I have since used him again and now have full custody of my daughter.
Mr. Wilson, "Thank you for what you did. I could never repay you for giving me my daughter back. You are a man of character and class. You are compassionate but possess the ability to stand up and fight. My child's mother later thanked me for getting you because we didn't kick her when she was down. Your focus was what was best for the child. You gave me my life and my love back. Thank you, sir."
The firm is fantastic but my loyalties reside in Mr. Wilson.

I retained Mr. Wilson several years back for what seemed like a straight forward Drivers License issue. I could not have been more wrong in my original assessment . I was so confused,lost, scared and worst of all stranded. You have no idea how important driving is until you are not legally permitted to do so. I have always heard that driving was a privilege and not a right, this is the most truthful statement i have ever known.Now, fast forward several years and once again i found myself in a similar situation and was staring straight down the barrel of a Revocation and/or an indefinite suspension. The situation was overwhelming and i was as scared and confused as i had been when this first happened. This situation seemed hopeless with no help insight .They were once again threatening to revoked my Driving privileges and i was simply out of luck until i met there demands. They wanted so much of me, classes,forms, medical review clearances and more than anything else money. I immediately scrambled to reach back out to Mr. Wilson. I met with him the next afternoon and we discussed my options and developed a game plan. I instantly felt a calming effect as i left his office and was able to think straight for the first time in days. By the next day he was telling me to dress appropriately and to meet him at the regional d.m.v office the next morning. We met there for what i thought would be a hearing or at best a Q and A session with the D.M.V officials. Once again i could not have been more wrong, but to my surprise all i had to do was pose for a new picture and provide information with my new address. I walked out of the d.m.v office with a new found appreciation for the right to drive and more importantly much respect for the person that made it happen . Mr. Chris Wilson not only went out of his way to get me in and out but did so within hours of me first explaining my situation to him. I still do not know how on earth he did what he did, and probably never will. It took me longer to find out the required documents list than it took him to get me cleared, reinstated and back on the open road.The best part of this entire process, he did not take me to the cleaners as far as the retainer. I was as desperate as one could be and it was obvious. I would have paid a kings ransom and he knew this. The fee for his services were a fraction of what the D.M.V claimed i owed and the only money i paid to the D.M.V I consider to be drop in the bucket. I can honestly say i do not know what i would have done had it not been for the guidance and expertise of Mr Wilson. My poor judgement could have cost me my job, (company car) my insurance to be cancelled, my freedom, the list goes on and on. I hope i never need to again but, i am confident that as long as i have Chris Wilson in my corner that i can handle all that is thrown my way. I had refereed friends & family before this most recent brush with the Law/d.m.v. now i feel like shouting it from the roof tops. Sometimes lawyers get a bum rap but not this guy. He is an outstanding Attorney and seems to be an even better person. I hope that one day i will be able to return the favor, until then i will continue pay it forward the best way i know how.

I am working with Mr. Wilson in a dispute with my former husband. Mr. Wilson had the audacity to ask what I did for a living and that "things would go much easier for me, if I was nice." I am not sure that this is the type of attorney that you would want to represent your family when working through a divorce or other family matter. Having a professional attorney who knows his place when speaking with clients and other litigants would not be a strong suit of Mr. Wilson. I would seek legal advice from another law firm or perhaps represent yourself.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I previously worked against Chris Wilson on a family law matter, but I am happy to endorse him even so. He is a skilled, experienced litigator who works hard on his client's behalf and who remains professional and level-headed despite the usually heightened emotions in any divorce or family law case. Don't get me wrong -- I happily represent clients seeking family law help here in Jacksonville. But if a potential client felt that we weren't the right fit, or was conflicted out from my representation, then I would be happy to suggest they seek out Chris for very competent and efficient representation. He's an ethical and excellent family law trial attorney.
