About Natalie Friend Wilson

Natalie Wilson practices in the Firm’s Bankruptcy, Litigation, and Appellate groups. She represents debtors, trustees, and creditors in commercial bankruptcy cases filed under chapters 7 and 11 of the bankruptcy Code, including related litigation and appeals. She also consults with other members of the firm about bankruptcy-related issues or questions that may arise in litigation or transactional matters. Ms. Wilson also represents plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of civil litigation and appeals, primarily in the federal courts.

Prior to joining Langley & Banack, Ms. Wilson clerked for Associate Justice Simeon R. Acoba, Jr. (Ret.) at the Hawaii Supreme Court. Her clerkship honed her research and writing skills and gave her insight into how courts decide cases. Most importantly, Justice Acoba emphasized the commitment to providing quality representation and service to every party before the Court and set an example of professionalism that established the tone for Ms. Wilson’s practice. After her clerkship, Ms. Wilson entered private practice in Honolulu, Hawaii, practicing before the bankruptcy, federal, and state courts in Hawaii.

In addition to her thriving legal practice and her membership in various bar associations, Ms. Wilson is active in the Military Spouse JD Network, a bar association for lawyers married to members of the armed forces. She is active in the local Air Force community, serving as the Key Spouse for the 92nd Cyber Operations Squadron (2016-2017) and the 624th Operations Center (2011-2012).

In 2014, Ms. Wilson was named the Belva Lockwood Outstanding Young Lawyer by the Bexar County Women’s Bar Foundation in recognition of her contributions to the profession and the community, and her commitment to advancing women in the profession of law.  In 2015, she was the 24th Air Force nominee for the Joan Orr Spouse of the Year Award in recognition of her contributions to military families in support of mission readiness.
