David Wiley


I am an attorney and principal in the law firm Gibson Wiley PLLC. I focus my practice of law on protecting workers in employment matters.

I am frequently asked to teach lawyers about employment law at continuing legal education seminars.

Over the past 20 years, I have represented nurses, police officers, laborers, executives, administrative assistants, lawyers, sales associates, managers, teachers, and others in our community.

I guide people through employment problems, counsel workers through severance, and when necessary, sue small and large companies that violate state or federal employment laws.

I previously worked in the Commercial Litigation Section of Jenkens & Gilchrist, P.C. – one of the largest law firms in Texas at the time. I also previously worked in the Litigation Section of King & Ballow — a nationally recognized management-side labor and employment defense law firm.

I began my career assisting a federal judge: I worked as a two-year law clerk to the Honorable Mary Ann Vial Lemmon of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana in New Orleans.
