about.

When we started Wilson Dutra, our focus was and continues to be on one thing: fun collaboration.

We truly believe that the best work comes from working closely together with as much input as we can possibly get to deliver the best work product to you.

This means multiple team members are involved in your project (at no extra charge to you) so that we can truly see if the old adages “two heads are better than one” / “teamwork makes the dream work” equates to the best work product we could possibly deliver.

our team.

Bio:

Camille Wilson began her education in biomedical engineering at Johns Hopkins University where she developed her technical background and her love for technology. She then transferred to Texas A&M in Galveston to pursue a degree in maritime administration. After working for around three years in the shipping industry in Savannah, she decided to go to law school. There she discovered the perfect platform to combine her background in business, love of writing, and passion for science and technology.

Directly out of law school, after passing both the Florida Bar and the Patent Bar, she worked as a contractor interacting with a team in the Research & Development department at a Fortune 50 Company. Because of the collaborative environment, she is listed as an inventor in dozens of patent applications and sixteen issued US patents. Over the years, as a patent attorney in Jacksonville, FL, she has drafted over two hundred patent applications, working with a range of inventors from research engineers to start-up companies to solo inventors.

Fernando Dutra is a Florida Board-Certified Specialist in Intellectual Property law. Fernando is admitted to practice law in New York, New Jersey, Washington D.C., and Florida. Before starting Wilson Dutra with Camille, Fernando practiced personal injury and bankruptcy litigation in upstate New York. the allure of working with excited entrepreneurs starting their intellectual property journeys was too difficult to turn down. (The warmer weather certainly didn’t hurt either – though Fernando does miss Fall every year.)

As a managing attorney, Fernando oversees strategic and day-to-day operations at Wilson Dutra. If there’s a way to better serve WD’s clients, Fernando wants to hear it!

When Fernando isn’t working on WD (and when isn’t he?), you can probably find him at a local concert, catching up on the latest video game news, or watching a movie.

Ryan McCarthy is primarily a graphic designer, working with Wilson Dutra on social media and in-house design efforts. His interest in design stems from a fascination with the world and development of video-games. Also leaning in on marketing efforts, Ryan challenges himself to weave the interests of a marketer with those of a designer. He also designed this very website, which to his pleasure (and at times displeasure) brought about an entirely new set of challenges.

Ryan can always be found tinkering away at a stats-driven design (or, you know, sometimes just a fun one), but is always pleased by the different forms his role can take on the day-by-day.

When not working, you’ll find him with his head in a book or game, or perhaps exploring his new-found surroundings in the UK.
