Louisiana and Mississippi Medical Malpractice, Catastrophic and Serious Personal Injury Lawyers

Firm History

Upon the dissolution of a predecessor firm, Friend, Wilson, Draper & Bowling on February 1, 1994, partners Gordon F. Wilson, Jr. and David A. Bowling declined invitations to join several large regional firms, believing that a smaller firm structure could best facilitate their goal of providing effective legal representation to clients in need of the skills of trial counsel in the Louisiana court system. Thus, on March 1, 1994, the law firm of Wilson & Bowling was born. In 1998, Mr. Bowling obtained his license to practice in Mississippi in addition to Louisiana, and the firm opened a statewide practice in Mississippi.  Mr. Wilson retired from active practice with the firm in 2008.

Throughout his 33 year career of trial work, Mr. Bowling has  handled numerous complex cases involving medical malpractice, life-threatening personal injury, martime, and other civil litigation. Zachary Christiansen, a Tulane Law School graduate with an undergraduate degree in Engineering from Georgia Tech, joined the firm in 2012 and enhanced the firm's capabilities with respect to the complex and technical cases for which the the firm is known. Briana Whetstone, also a graduate of Tulane School of Law, and Victoria Chamberlain, who obtained a degree from Mississippi College School of Law, joined the firm in 2014.
