Kenneth J. Wilson Member

Kenneth J. Wilson’s legal career is focused on helping workers who have suffered from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related illnesses.

He grew up near the Rust Belt city of Youngstown, Ohio, where he was exposed to the blue-collar work ethic and the power of law. His grandfather was a judge, his grandmother was charter member of a nurse’s union and his father worked with the area’s steel industry.

In law school, Wilson was in the first class of summer law clerks at Ness, Motley, Loadholt, Richardson & Poole, where he worked with the lawyers who pioneered asbestos and tobacco litigation. He jokes that the firm had too much invested in him not to give him a job, but the truth is that he was a perfect fit for the fast-paced litigation.

The firm hired him right after law school, putting him to work building liability cases against large asbestos companies, preparing cases for trial and assisting with the trials. Within two years, he was co-lead attorney on the case of a Miami tile setter who suffered from asbestosis. The jury returned a $716,000 verdict.

The most rewarding and meaningful aspect of his job is that gets to help people who worked hard their entire lives only to find their retirement cut short due to the negligence and willful misconduct of asbestos manufacturers and large employers.

Wilson also enjoys meeting people with fascinating backgrounds. He is proud and honored to represent men and women who worked to win wars and help build the United States.

Wilson is married and has two children in college. He is an avid runner, swimmer and reader of classic literature. He enjoys golf.
