History of the Firm

After working for other law firms for eight years, Trey Wilson founded R L WILSON LAW FIRM on September 16, 2005.  We opened our doors on that momentous Diez y Seis de Septiembre with just three clients (two of which are still with us), a Grito de Independencia, and a vision to establish a small firm that timely delivers “big firm” results at a fair price.

Trey set-out to develop a client base without the benefit of social media or a hefty advertising budget. Our initial marketing strategy was simple reliance upon Trey’s extensive personal relationships as a homegrown San Antonian, and an inexpensive “Tombstone ad” in a church bulletin. These modest marketing strategies, combined with a strong determination to earn referrals, permitted Trey to steadily grow the firm.

Referrals from other attorneys, realtors and existing and past clients quickly became the foundation of our book of business, and remains so today. Multiple of our long-term clients specifically sought-out and engaged us after we represented an opposing party in litigation. Likewise, we regularly receive referrals from former opposing counsel with whom we have locked horns.

We fondly reminisce about those humble early days.  Since then, however, we have been blessed with the opportunity to represent several hundred corporate, governmental and individual clients in thousands of engagements across the Lone Star State.

Though the firm is headquartered in San Antonio, we have literally represented clients from Brownsville to Dallas, Houston to Marfa, and scores of communities in-between. Our wake of victories and favorable results has resulted in a sizeable base of loyal clients, awards and recognition, and a strong online presence.

R L WILSON LAW FIRM has worked with affiliated counsel and employed associate attorneys who share our vision for a culture grounded in exceeding our clients’ expectations with consummate professionalism and unparalleled preparation in every engagement. We apply rigorous energy, expertise and attention to ensure that each of our clients receives superior representation.

We value past successes, take pride in servicing ongoing relationships and look forward to future opportunities and challenges.
