Laurence P. Wilson is a Family Law Attorney in San Francisco, California. He began practicing law in 1975. He has enjoyed the prestigious Martindale-Hubbell AV rating since 1981 and he also was elected to fellowship in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers [AAML] that year. He has served as a volunteer Superior Court Family Law Judge Pro Tempore in San Mateo, San Francisco and Marin Counties since 1991. Mr. Wilson lectures frequently to lawyers and other specialty practitioners regarding a variety of Family Law subjects, including collaborative law, collaborative practice and mediation. He has been selected as a Northern California Super Lawyer by San Francisco Magazine.
In 1994, Mr. Wilson co-founded the predecessor group to The San Francisco Collaborative Practice Group along with several other practitioners, several of whom remain active in the current organization. He has maintained an active collaborative divorce practice since 1994 and devotes a considerable percentage of his practice time to collaborative matters. He also is a member of the unrelated San Francisco Collaborative Law Group.
Mr. Wilson’s practice is limited to collaborative divorce, family law mediation, family law consultations, preparation of pre-marital, marital and post-marital contracts and private judging. With very few exceptions, he no longer accepts new litigation matters. He has conducted successful collaborative divorces in all of the San Francisco Bay Area counties, as well as in Monterey and Los Angeles Counties and he is open to being engaged in collaborative cases in which any of the other members of The San Francisco Collaborative Practice Group have been designated as his collaborative counterpart.
