Trish Wilson is a Partner in MKCI’s Florham Park, NJ office with over 15 years of litigation experience in many areas of litigation, including the defense of mass tort, sexual abuse, product and premises liability, property damage, construction negligence, mold contamination, class action and consumer fraud, and commercial contract dispute litigation. She successfully represents school districts and school personnel in New York State related to negligent supervision and Child Victims’ Act sexual abuse claims. Trish also specializes in the defense of manufacturers and suppliers as National Coordinating Counsel in toxic tort claims involving asbestos. In this role, she supervises and manages a large network of local counsel in the coordination of multi-district litigation.
In addition to her litigation experience, Trish is a member of MKCI’s Leadership Committee and co-chair of MKCI’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee. She plays an integral role in implementing the Firm’s strong commitment to celebrating the diversity of our attorneys, paralegals and staff, as well as recruiting talent that share these values. Trish also has a leadership role in the Firm’s Attorney Associate Program wherein, in conjunction with the Management Committee, she has implemented procedures and policies for young lawyers to hone and develop their skills, as she believes they are the future of the Firm.
Prior to joining MKCI, Trish worked at several “Big Law” firms based in New York City. She believes that MKCI’s collegial environment and commitment to its clients and employees, and fostering of a healthy work/life balance with a myriad of leadership opportunities, is a unique combination not typically found in firms of its size. Trish’s love of writing, coupled with her dedication to her two young daughters, prompted her to write an award-winning children’s book regarding teaching young children about fiscal responsibility. Her book, “A Penny for Piggy: The Tale of Save, Spend and Share” has been featured in Forbes and Creative Child Magazine. She is also extremely involved in her children’s elementary school as a PTO volunteer both inside and outside the classroom.
Trish obtained her Juris Doctor degree from Pace University School of Law. While attending Pace, Trish served as an Editor of the Pace Environmental Law Review. Trish earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Colgate University.
