Michael D. Wilson
Michael D. Wilson has dedicated his life to public service—first as a police officer, then as a federal law-enforcement official, and now as an attorney in private practice.
A native of northern Louisiana, Attorney Wilson received his undergraduate degree from the University of Louisiana at Monroe. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps and then worked as a police officer before joining the U.S. Border Patrol in 1992 as a Patrol Agent.
In 1998 Attorney Wilson was detailed to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Facility in Charleston, South Carolina as a Law Instructor where he was responsible for planning and teaching courses in Immigration and Nationality Law, criminal law, and statutory authority.
Then in 2003, with the creation of U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the Border Patrol became a part of Custom and Border Protection whereby Attorney Wilson continued his duties as a Senior Patrol Agent within the Border Patrol. As a Senior Patrol Agent, Attorney Wilson investigated individuals and initiated cases for presentation to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for prosecution. In the course of that work, he attained a deep grounding in Immigration and Nationality Law, federal criminal law, statutory authority and deportation law.
While working in Customs and Border Protection, Attorney Wilson continued to further his education. First, he received a Masters of Education degree from William Carey College in 2005 and then got his J.D. from the Southern University Law Center in 2010. He’s been practicing throughout the state of Mississippi with his law office located in Biloxi ever since.
His practice focuses largely on federal matters, including criminal and bankruptcy cases. He also handles state criminal and civil cases, including personal injury and family law. In keeping with his lifelong commitment to civic responsibility, he’s received a Pro Bono award from the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyer’s Project for the volunteer lawyering that he’s provided for people in need.
Attorney Wilson has also found time to teach, both as a substitute and as a volunteer, in the public school system along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
To Attorney Wilson, it’s all part of the same thing.
“I’ve been a civil servant my whole life,” he says. “Public service has always been my calling and it always will be.”
