Wilkie thinks that creativity is an under-appreciated and under-utilized aspect of practicing law. Although the law at times appears clear-cut-and-dried, there is still plenty of room for creative thinking. Creativity comes into play, for example, when it comes to presenting a set of facts in a certain light in order to persuade a judge or jury, or to negotiate a favorable contract or settlement for a client.
In his over thirty years of practice, Wilkie has applied the lessons in creativity gleaned from handling almost a thousand cases involving disputes concerning real estate, contracts, insurance coverage and legal malpractice. He has taken approximately 100 of those cases to trial before a judge or jury.
He is a member of the Consumer Attorneys of California, Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles, the Southern California Chapter Chinese American Lawyers Association and the Cowboy Lawyers Association.
He is admitted to practice before all the California courts, the United States District Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court.
Wilkie is well versed on legal disputes involving real estate. He has handled real estate disputes from inception all the way to the United States Supreme Court. He is a licensed real estate broker and has written and lectured on issues involving real estate litigation.
Wilkie graduated cum laude from UCLA, and obtained his law degree from Loyola University School of Law, graduating with honors and selected for membership into the Sir Thomas More Honor Society.
Wilkie has served on Advisory Board and Building Committee of Los Angeles Branch of the American Heart Association and as legal advisor to the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Southern California Chapter.
He has a confirmed weakness for sports cars, especially those manufactured in Italy and enjoys skiing, horseback riding, bicycling and scuba diving.
