practiced rough-and-tumble criminal and civil trial law for many
years until I stepped on so many prosecutors' and
judges’ toes I decided to resign and sold my law practice
and became a college law professor and writer."

Intent on a military career, Bobby enlisted in the National Guard
while beginning his high school senior year. His plans for the future
were suddenly cut short when he was jailed and criminally charged
with his family’s deaths.
After his release from jail, Bobby had to rebuild his life from
scratch and worked his way through the University of Texas and Texas
Tech School of Law, all the while supporting a wife and daughter.
Bobby graduated from Law School in 1973 having already passed the
State Bar exam. He was admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme
Court in 1980.
He soon established himself as a fearless trial lawyer in the State
of Texas, unafraid to take on the establishment or its leaders in
civil and criminal litigation. He made enemies in the legal profession,
but his clients worshipped him.
In the early 1990’s Bobby quit the law business to become a professor
of law. He moved to Arizona and became certified to teach law and
political science and was named Outstanding Business Faculty Instructor
at Rio Salado College in 1999. In 2014, Bobby Wilson was named Outstanding Adjunct Faculty in the Paralegal Program.
In 2001 he was retained by the disgraced Arthur Anderson and Company
to write an Ethics guide for their employees in Arizona.
Bobby continues to write and teach law and paralegal courses for colleges in Arizona. Currently, Bobby is busy writing a series of books under his "Bobby Trials" banner as well as Murder Mysteries/Legal Thrillers. Bobby
is married and currently living in Arizona.
