After earning his undergraduate degree, Beau decided to follow in the footsteps of his father, Rob Wilder, by pursuing a career in law. He enrolled in the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he served as a member of the editorial board of the South Carolina Law Review.
Early legal career
After graduating from law school, Beau began his legal career by serving as a law clerk for Federal Court Judge Graham C. Mullen in Charlotte. This gave him firsthand experience in federal litigation and also provided an invaluable opportunity to see cases through the perspective of a judge. In the following years, Beau practiced criminal defense, family law, and personal injury law in the greater Charlotte area, developing his ability to litigate cases with jury trials, motion hearings and settlement negotiations.
In the last decade, Beau has represented hundreds of personal injury victims across North and South Carolina.
