Few attorneys can say they have done it all in their area of practice. Nathan McCoy can. From defending Fortune 500 companies at one of the nation’s largest and most distinguished management defense firms to practicing with one of Florida’s most well-known “Plaintiffs Firms,” Nathan has gained invaluable experience from every angle of the courtroom and bargaining table. His diverse experience has given him keen insight into the minds of corporations (both large and small), individuals, and their counsel as they position themselves in legal battles and negotiations. Because he has been behind enemy lines and back again, he has developed a breadth of legal and business knowledge, as well as a true balanced perspective.
Nathan has parlayed such experience into co-founding and managing Wilson McCoy, P.A., a law firm dedicated to coaching, counseling, and representing businesses and individuals in business and employment related matters. Since its inception in 2012, Wilson McCoy, P.A. has been named by and featured as a “Best Law Firm” by U.S. News & World Report from 2013 – 2015. As a true “lawpreneur,” Nathan enjoys working with entrepreneurs, startups, and small businesses to ensure complying with the law does not interfere with the creativity needed to succeed in today’s legalistic business environment.
Nathan graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in General Business Administration, magna cum laude, from the University of Central Florida (“UCF”) and obtained his law degree from the University of Tennessee, where he served as Managing Editor of Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law and was a member of the Board of Editors for the Tennessee Law Review.
Nathan is a published author and a contributing author to the to-be-released book, “Get in the Game,” has served as a guest professor on contracts for UCF, and often lectures at legal seminars. He is married to his wife of 14 years, a proud father of two, and an endurance obstacle race enthusiast.

I highly recommend Nate as an attorney and an advocate for labor, employment, and business matters for both companies and individuals. Nate is extremely experienced in all aspects of employment law and it shows in his ability to navigate even the most complicated cases. Seemingly, there is no such thing as "too much work" for Nate as he time and time again displays that he is dedicated to his clients and a perfectionist in his work. His tireless efforts to achieve optimal outcomes have served as both an inspiration and an exemplary model for which to mold a successful legal career.
