History of Wilson & Wilson
The Wilson family has owned and operated Wilson & Wilson since it was founded in 1974. The firm began when founding member, Attorney John P. Wilson, and another attorney formed an association in White River Township, just outside of the city limits of Greenwood, Indiana. This association existed until March of 1977 when the second attorney left the firm to pursue other opportunities within the city limits of Greenwood. Mr. Wilson continued to operate the firm, and was soon joined by Attorney William E. Limeberry, and still later by Attorney Richard L. Tandy. This association was known as Wilson, Limeberry & Tandy, and it existed until the mid-1990's when Mr. Limeberry and Mr. Tandy left the association to pursue other opportunities in the practice of law. Mr. Wilson was then joined by Attorney James R. Green and Attorney M. Carolyn Cecere, to form the association of Wilson, Green, and Cecere. Wilson, Green, and Cecere existed until 2011, when Mr. Green and Mrs. Cecere both retired from the practice of law. Mrs. M. Carolyn Cecere remains “of counsel” with the firm. In May of 2011, Mr. Wilson was joined by his daughter, Attorney Jennifer D. Wilson, to form the current association of Wilson & Wilson.
The firm in its’ current composition is a general practice firm, with an emphasis on the following areas of law:
Criminal Defense, including extensive felony trial work.
