Nia Wilson joined the Dallas offices of Baron & Budd in 2019. She works with the firm’s Opioid Litigation Group to represent communities that have been devastated by the nation’s opioid crisis. Although a Jackson, Mississippi native, Ms. Wilson is excited to continue her legal career in Dallas.
Ms. Wilson earned her undergraduate degrees in Journalism and Communications from Mississippi State University in Starkville, Mississippi. She then continued to the University of Mississippi School of Law in Oxford, Mississippi. While in law school, she explored various avenues of law by interning for the Dallas Federal Public Defender’s Office and the Northern District of Mississippi U.S. Attorney’s Office. She also worked as a judicial intern for Honorable Katharine Samson of the Southern District of Mississippi Bankruptcy Court. These diverse experiences helped shape her into the well-rounded attorney she is today.
Ms. Wilson’s commitment to the community is unmatched. While in law school, she represented neglected and abused children through her law school’s Child Advocacy Clinic. The experience allowed her to expand her legal expertise while also fighting for those who often cannot fight for themselves. It should come as no surprise that upon receiving her license to practice law, Ms. Wilson joined the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program where she provides free legal help to low income citizens. Ms. Wilson’s strong commitment to helping others keeps her motivated to excel in her profession.
Ms. Wilson joined Baron & Budd in order to make a difference in the lives of individuals and communities adversely affected by unscrupulous companies. Her passion has always been advocacy for clients’ rights, and she looks forward to pursuing a legal career providing representation to individuals who have been harmed due to the negligence of others.
