2A Rights Restoration
Thomas was great to work with. He helped me successfully petition the courts to restore my 2nd amendment rights which were taken away over a decade ago as a result of some bad decisions in my early 20's. He was very professional and a great communicator. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking to restore their 2A rights to work with Mr. Wilson.

Two for Two
Tom is an amazing attorney. He’s well prepared, knows what he needs to do to win, and commits his effort entirely to his client. I have had Tom Wilson represent me twice in the last 6 years. Both times to clear up my past from an unfortunate night I had 20 years ago. First, a restoration of firearm privileges and second, a Pardon. For both cases he had me fill out all the necessary information about myself including affidavits from my peers. The firearm case lasted all of five minutes and I left with my rights restored. On the pardon he had everything fully prepared so there were no surprises for either the pardon board or me at the time of the meeting. If you show up to a pardon meeting thinking you’re going to keep some information from the pardon board you’ll be sorely mistaken. The committee sees everything and asks for thorough explanation. Tom had everything laid out for them so it went as smoothly as a pardon meeting can go. Again, my pardon was granted and I am a happy customer. Especially considering only about 30% of the pardons that day were granted.

I have been going through my forearm restoration for about 8 years and mr. Wilson has stuck with me through out the whole process. Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I would have never achieved my outcome with out him. I had other higher profile lawyers say my case wasn't doable. He saw the potential and got the outcome we were looking for. Thank you!

Couldn’t Ask for a Better Attorney
Couldn’t have asked for a better attorney. Always available, great communication, very timely responses to my questions. We will all need an attorney at some point in our lives and you will not be disappointed with Mr. Wilson’s services.

The best lawyer out there
First, I had a consultation with Mr. Wilson. I then decided I was definitely going to hire Mr. Wilson. Mr. Wilson researched, drafted and filed a Petition for me, along with a Legal Memorandum, proposed Order, and supporting documents. The outcome was exactly the one I was hoping for. I would highly recommend Mr. Wilson to anyone and everyone seeking legal representation. Mr. Wilson is a wonderful, professional, educated and knowledgeable lawyer.

Thankful for the knowledge and professionalism of Mr. Wilson
I was subject to a lifetime ban for a nonviolent crime when I was 19. After having lost my rights for 23 years I contacted Thomas and several other attorneys. He was by for the most knowledgeable regarding my restrictions. The entire process took a while but it was well worth the wait. He was very patient with me and answered all of my questions. Our day in court let Mr Wilson show his skill. I didn't have to say a word and the judge was impressed enough to make a decision that day. His preparation was second to none leaving me with a long overdue restoration on my rights. I would recommend him to everyone.

Firearms rights restored! Thank you so much for giving me my life back!
Mr. Wilson was a fantastic lawyer! He took charge in my case and had my firearm rights restored without going to court. Every time I had a question I gave him a call and always received a call back the same day. He is very professional and really cares about what he is doing. Give him a call if you need legal help.

A Brilliant Criminal Defense Attorney
Being a defendant in a criminal matter is never easy -- sorting between choices for an attorney often makes the process even more stressful. That all changed when I met Mr. Wilson, who provided a steady and powerful voice that ultimately saw my criminal charge dismissed with prejudice. Many attorneys act as though they're the best thing to happen to you in a crappy situation -- Thomas Wilson proves he is, not by handholding and table-pounding, but through his humility and skill. In my opinion, he is the finest criminal defense attorney in Minnesota. But don't ask him--he'll just say he's doing his job. No one deserves such a title more than Mr. Wilson, and wears it less.

Endorse Thomas
Criminal defense Attorney | May 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse Thomas. He is a highly skilled attorney that is well respected in the legal community."
Criminal defense Attorney | May 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Having had the distinct pleasure of working closely on several criminal defense cases, Mr. Wilson's thorough, patient management of even routine criminal matters consistently demonstrated a first-rate legal mind combined with an instinctive "feel" for the complexity of criminal and constitutional law, a skillset generally reserved for attorneys with several decades of experience. I have witnessed Mr. Wilson take seemingly intractable criminal cases, turn the prosecution's position upside down, and leave the courtroom victorious--all while doing so with grace and humility for the responsibility both clients and the court system place in his hands, and leading me to conclude his exceptional legal skill is matched only by a genuine concern for his client's well-being. I endorse Thomas A. Wilson without qualification."
