About Carlton D. Wilde, Jr.

Since the beginning of his career, Carlton’s commitment and ingenuity has led to numerous successful outcomes for his clients. When the construction of the Harris County Jail was met with protests, Carlton drafted a summary judgment that put a stop to the disruptions. 

He also successfully resolved a lawsuit aimed at the Women’s Professional Football League when it was sued by a team owner. Additionally, when a high-profile Heisman trophy winner was robbed by a member of his management team, Carlton was able to convince the IRS of the resulting loss from theft, therefore freeing his client’s obligation to pay taxes on the monies stolen. 

Furthermore, Carlton has overseen the dismissals of several frivolous securities and Federal Courts claims.

Carlton attended the College of William and Mary before receiving a B.A. in Economics from The University of Texas. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from the University of Houston. Between law school and CJMH, Carlton gained a wealth of knowledge by working for three different law firms. In addition to his JD, Carlton is certified as an arbitrator by the AA White Dispute Resolution Center, a member of the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel, and a member of the Southwest Association of Bank Counsel. He has also presented at several monthly and annual seminars on behalf of CJMH.

When he’s not in the office or courthouse, Carlton can be found playing bluegrass music, fly fishing, reading, and cooking.
