Jeff Wilson has served the needs of businesses and individuals in Inland North County for more than four decades, having been admitted to the California Bar in 1977. The U.S. Navy brought him to the Miramar Air Station when the I-15 freeway North was only two lanes. His care for the area, in which he resides, was inspired from his attendance at the second annual July 4th Golf Car Parade down Rancho Bernardo Road in 1971, even before he attended law school.
A former President of the Chamber of Commerce and active in many volunteer organizations, he carries a wealth of experience in assisting the needs of families and businesses. He maintains a general civil practice with emphasis on creditor/debtor relations, business organizations, family law, real estate, and dispute resolution. His realm of experience lends itself to a “big picture” perspective, which is more often than not the way to find solutions to complex and inter-twined personal and business issues.
What, in a word, does Jeff Wilson have to distinguish himself from others? Experience. People don’t tolerate being categorized. Why should people’s problems be simplistically categorized? You certainly don’t need a “Jack of All Trades”, but you could use multi-disciplined experience, much like a construction supervisor manages trades, or a service manager controls car maintenance.
He has represented clients in San Diego, Orange, Riverside, Imperial, and Los Angeles County Superior Courts, as well as Southern, Central, and Northern Federal District and Bankruptcy Courts. He has participated in Administrative Hearings before the Department of Defense, Industrial Security Clearance Review; the Employment Development Department; the San Diego and Escondido Boards of Realtors; and the Board of Behavioral Sciences.
Our Philosophy on Expectations
In our fast-paced world, you might think I am able to answer phones and email 24/7. I cannot. Even though you might think about a problem after hours or on weekends, that doesn’t mean I am available to receive your thoughts. I think e-mails are a wonderful way to catch those thoughts; a response will be forthcoming on a regular work day, unless, of course, we have made some other special arrangement. Phone calls and e-mails are regularly answered in the order received.
What is a “Legal Emergency”?
I know there are “medical emergencies.” After all my years of practice, I’m still not sure there are “legal” ones. If you’re contacting me for the first time after 4:00 p.m., and a foreclosure is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. the next day, that “emergency” took at least three weeks to reveal itself. There is very little that can be done. If you are contacting me for the first time in January, about Spring Break visitation, you have the time to focus on the problem. Interestingly, under today’s case administration, that problem might require what the court thinks of as an “emergency” treatment, since getting a regularly-scheduled court hearing to deal with the visitation requires several months!
I am not perfect. I seem to make mistakes on billing a lot because I place my needs secondary to those of my clients. I ask my clients to tell me if they see an error.
Please do not expect perfection in my administering to your needs. You have every right to expect and demand high-quality devotion of time and of attention to your circumstances, and the challenges you face. Yet, not all challenges lend themselves to an orderly and satisfactory outcome. Sometimes, the mere finality of a protracted contest can offer a stand-alone goal.
