ATTORNEY GENERAL ALAN WILSON

Alan Wilson was elected South Carolina's 51st Attorney General on November 2, 2010, and re-elected for a second term on November 4, 2014.  During his tenure, Wilson has focused on keeping South Carolina a safe place to live, work, and raise a family.

As South Carolina's Attorney General, Wilson is the state's chief prosecutor, chief securities officer, and the state's chief legal counsel.  The office is comprised of more than 200 employees and nearly 90 attorneys who manage approximately 8,000 active case files.

He has worked closely with the Attorney General's office, the State Law Enforcement Division, every sheriff, the Police Chiefs Association, victims' advocacy groups and all 16 solicitors.  Together, they are actively advancing legislative priorities to ensure South Carolina is the safest place to live, work, and raise a family.  This coalition has been successful in passing crucial public safety legislation, such as the Ashley Hall bill, Domestic Violence reform, Emma's Law and Human Trafficking reform.

Prior to his election, Wilson served as an Assistant Solicitor and as an Assistant Attorney General before entering private practice with the Columbia firm of Willoughby & Hoefer, P.A.  He began his legal career working for the late Judge Marc H. Westbrook.

Wilson joined the National Guard immediately after graduating from college.  He was called to serve in Iraq, where he led troops through enemy fire and earned the Combat Action Badge.
Today, he continues his military service by providing legal support for soldiers and assisting in the prosecution of military crimes as a Colonel in the Judge Advocate General Corps.

He is a graduate of Francis Marion University and the University Of South Carolina School Of Law. Wilson and his wife, Jennifer, have two young children, Michael and Anna Grace.
