Brian was born and raised in Toronto, OH, a small town on the Ohio River. After graduating from Kent State University (1984) and Akron Law School (1987), he settled in Canton, OH, and has been a practicing Ohio personal injury attorney in Canton, Stark County, and Northeast Ohio since 1988.
Brian has litigated and tried cases to juries in numerous counties throughout Ohio, and has argued cases in numerous Courts of Appeal. Twice he has argued cases in The Ohio Supreme Court (you can view a video of a case Brian argued here).
He has written numerous articles on various Ohio personal injury legal topics that have been published in Ohio Lawyer and Ohio Trial magazines. He has also written articles on Ohio medical malpractice issues on more than one occasion for the Ophthalmology Management Journal, as well as The Akron Beacon Journal and The Canton Repository. For well over a decade, he has frequently lectured and taught legal seminar topics to fellow attorneys for various local lawyers’ organizations such as The Ohio Association For Justice, The Stark County Association For Justice, The Stark County Bar Association, and The Mahoning-Trumbull Trial Lawyers’ Association.
On two occasions, Brian has testified before The Ohio Legislature to oppose laws restricting Ohio personal injury victims' access to the courts.
Every year since 2007, Brian has been chosen as an Ohio “Superlawyer” by Ohio Superlawyer Magazine, an honor bestowed upon less than five percent of Ohio attorneys each year. In 2009, he received a Distinguished Service Award from The Ohio Association Of Justice. Brian lives in North Canton with his wife Jodi and has two adult sons. He was active for years as a coach with the North Canton Little League and the North Canton YMCA. As for hobbies, Brian's passion is fishing, particularly for walleye, and spends as much spare time on the water as he can:
His other passions include vegetable gardening and canning (he may or may not be willing to share a recipe), and is a certified dog lover.
He also admits to being a poor golfer....( thankfully no images available...)
"We were going thorugh an awful family tragedy and somebody recommended we call Brian Wilson to help us out. It was exactly the right thing to do. Brian understood what we were going through and explained everything. He was available day and night for us to help us with questions or concerns. We could not have hoped for a more professional, knowledgeable, and caring person to help us. Brian was and still is like family! I don't know how we could have gone thorugh this terrible time in our lives without him. I would recommend Brian's firm to anybody if they ever have a need. Thank you Brian for everything. And I'm sure "the Nutroll lady" thanks him too. God bless!"
"Brian, you were awesome. I can't imagine changing anything! You were most informative, explained so that I could understand, helpful in more ways than I could have imagined. I only wish I had come to you first! I have already shared your name and will continue to do so. Your firm is top notch--very professional and yet caring--not everyone has that area of expertise..."
"We are very happy with the services received by Atty Wilson and staff. We don't feel he could have done more to get us a better deal on our settlement. Everyone is very personable and thorough in all matters. We think we were advised correctly and all was done with the best of our benefits in mind..."
This book will show you all the mistakes the insurance company is just waiting for you to make if you've been in an Ohio car, motorcycle, or truck accident or collision.
Your "Full Coverage" auto policy won't protect you in an accident, and we can prove it. Over 90% of all ohioans have lousy "Full Coverage insurance" and don't even know it--until AFTER they're hit by a drunk driver or a driver with little or no insurance.
And they have NOTHING to do with so called "frivolous lawsuits."
This free report will make your next medical encounter a safer one.
These patient safety tips came from actual malpractice cases we've handled.
