About David

Learn David’s areas of practice.

I represent people who've been injured because of the negligence of others.  I have concentrated my practice in the field of personal injury litigation, including trucking accidents and litigation. My practice includes a variety of cases including auto negligence, premises liability, insurance coverage disputes, uninsured and underinsured claims against insurance claims, and wrongful death cases.  I have tried more than 80 civil jury trials, and represented clients in Indiana Court of Appeals and Supreme Court.  I received a Martindale Hubbell AV Preeminent® Peer Review Rating. 

It was in the U.S. Army that I learned the meaning of serving, so that I could be of service to others. Prior to my legal education, I served in the U.S. Army, and served in the Republic of Panama.  I was also assigned to the Republic of Honduras on two tours of duty. I received the Army Commendation Medal, and Army Achievement Medal with Oak Leaf Cluster. 

I began representing the interests of others before I ever entered law school. As a Union member,  I served as a Committeeman (shop steward), Collective Bargaining representative during contract negotiations, and Financial Secretary Treasurer.

I am licensed to practice in the following jurisdictions and courts: 

  • The United States Supreme Court
  • The Untied States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit
  • The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Trial Bar)
  • The United States District Courts for the Northern District of Indiana
  • The United States District Courts for the Southern District of Indiana
  • Licensed in the State of Indiana and State of Illinois

Passionate, dedicated and persistant
David was one of my key attorneys for over 20 years as I worked in Human Resources for a major food retailer in Northwest Indiana. David is extremely loyal and dedicated to his clients and had an outstanding victory record in trials. I trusted David immensely in key trials and sat with him during some trials and watched his professional, effective and skillful handling of each case. He is an experienced and outstanding litigator who will always make his client his # 1 priority. He is tireless in his pursuit of victory and you will be extremely well served if you hire him for his impeccable expertise and tenaciousness.

Not just a great attorney, but a great guy!
Dave Wilson has been my attorney fir 3 years after I was involved in a horrific semi accident. I have never met a more dedicated lawyer in my life. I hear from him 3 to 4 times a week on avg and he knows every detail of my case as if it was his only car. He treats people like humans and not cases. I couldn't have hoped for a better attorney. Thank You Dave for all your hard work and always being there for me.

A Talented Lawyer Here
Attorney Wilson handled my case very well and was very helpful with very clear suggestions and alternatives when it came to decisions I had to make. I am very satisfied with his high amount of professional and remain very impressed with his presentation and courtroom behavior. He was an excellent advocate! I certainly would hire him again without any concerns whatsoever.

No one will work harder for you
Going through a lawsuit was something I thought I would never do. Attorney Wilson supported me 100% of the way, and always gave me a choice, explaining all outcomes. When my case went to trial, he was amazing at making the jury understand who I was and what I had gone through. I hope I never have to do it again, but if I do, there is no other attorney that I would hire.
