Lawrence Wilson prepared for his dream role as a talent representative and career choreographer in the courtroom as a trial attorney- litigating some complex and notorious cases for his more than 150 clients. He became one of the top young lawyers in America by welcoming high stakes and pressure. Unheard of for someone just years out of law school, he was asked to be a member of the trial team that ultimately negotiated and drafted a $1.1 Billion dollar settlement for class-action plaintiffs. His clients now include heavyweights in television and professional sports. Lawrence has represented several Fortune 500 companies.
