Ms. Wilson's considerable litigation and courtroom skills bear in every area of practice that Philpott Wilson, LLP handles. Ms. Wilson is eager to work with clients to help solve legal problems as efficiently as possible.


She graduated from Susquenita High School and then went on to attend and earn a degree from Swarthmore College outside Philadelphia. Working as a paralegal with the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, Ms. Wilson was able to attend Brooklyn Law School in New York.


She served on the law review and was president of moot court, and then graduated at the top of her class. After graduating from law school, she clerked for a U.S. district court judge in Memphis, Tennessee, and for a Third Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals judge in Newark, New Jersey.


After that valuable trial and appellate court clerking experience, Ms. Wilson launched into trial work as an associate at a large New York law firm, Chadbourne & Parke, LLP, working on product liability litigation. Ms. Wilson then spent four years defending the United States in tax refund litigation as a trial attorney for the Department of Justice Tax Division.


After practicing law in New York and Washington D.C., Attorney Wilson decided there was no better place to practice law than in the family business where she grew up. In 2009, she joined her father Jerry Philpott. Ms. Wilson currently represents defendants in criminal cases in state and federal courts – the most serious charges including murder, assault, burglary, conspiracy, and narcotics trafficking.
