WILSON C. VON K​ESSLER, II

ATTORNEY & COUNSELOR AT LAW

I'll help you find your way.

I was admitted to the Tennessee Bar in 1997 after receiving my Juris Doctorate at the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law at the University of Memphis, where I also received the Dean’s Awards for Academic Excellence in Legal Argument & Appellate Practice, ADR/Negotiations, and Criminal Procedure II.

I attended Vanderbilt University where I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree for a double major of Political Science and German in 1989.

I am admitted in all Tennessee state trial and appellate courts, including the Tennessee Supreme Court, as well as all three of the Federal District Courts for the State. I am also admitted in the State of Georgia.


Prior to representing the interests of individuals and small businesses, I spent seven years representing the interests of insurance companies and larger employers throughout Tennessee. I also served as an Assistant District Attorney in Memphis, Tennessee, immediately following my graduation from law school in 1997.


Before law school, I, being a native of Maryland, served as a Legislative Aide to Congresswoman Helen Bentley (MD-02) in Washington, D.C., from 1989 to 1994.

I live in Lookout Mountain, Georgia with my wife and two daughters. My wife is the Director of Development for Major Gifts at the UTC School of Business. In my spare time outside of work and family, I commit time to Masonic causes and enjoy working on my flat-fender Willys Jeep and rallying sportscars.
