Preston Wilson is a graduate of Vanderbilt University and of the University of Mississippi School of Law.  He served in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Corps from 1974 to 1977. He has been practicing in Memphis since 1978.

Preston concentrates his practice in the areas of probate, trusts and estates;  estate planning and asset protection; business organizations; and bankruptcy.  He has settled, tried and handled appeals in numerous business cases, and he has long experience in consumer and business bankruptcy law.  This broad experience gives him deeper insight into asset protection strategies, a major concern for his estate planning and business clients.  He has handled numerous contested matters in Probate Court.

While Preston is a zealous advocate in Probate Court, he would much prefer to help his clients avoid contested probate matters, whether estates or conservatorships, by helping them create thoughtful, well designed estate plans.

"Today, estate planning is really more about people planning than financial or tax planning.  Transferring your values is as important as transferring your valuables.  I want to know your story, so I listen a lot, and I speak and write English, not legalese."

And when bad things do happen to good people and the only option left is a bankruptcy, you will find Preston to be a compassionate, knowledgeable counsellor and advisor who will help you retain your dignity as well as your property throughout that process.  Preston has represented debtors and creditors in hundreds of bankruptcy cases for over 35 years, and he has served as a Bankruptcy Trustee for twelve years.   

Preston is enrolled to practice in all Tennessee courts, the U.S. District Courts for the Western District of Tennessee and the Northern District of Mississippi, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.  He is a member of the Tennessee Bar Association (Probate, Trusts and Estates Section and Business Law Section), the Memphis Bar Association (Probate and Trust Section and Bankruptcy Section), the national Network of Estate Planning Attorneys and the Memphis Estate Planning Council.  He has served as president of the Mid-South Estate Planning Forum and on the Board of Directors of the Memphis Bar Association.
