A third-generation Rattler, Wesley is following the footsteps of his grandparents and father. As a law student, he was a member of Phi Alpha Delta, the Marshall-Bell Law Society, Black Law Student Association and the Women’s Law Caucus. He participated in both the Guardian Ad Litem and Mediation Clinics, and assisted the College of Law Office of Advancement as a Student Ambassador.

Wesley is certified by the Supreme Court of Florida as a County Mediator, and was appointed to the Ninth Judicial Circuit Court Mediation internship program. As a law student he attained the highest grade in Law and Film Seminar, and was appointed to the Dean’s List, both for the Spring 2015 semester. He is a graduate of Riverview High School.
What sparked Wesley’s interest in the law:
Growing up, I was always around the field of law and exposed to it at an earlier age. Because both of my parents are in the law field, I quickly grew an interest for it and made up my mind at a very young age that I was going to be a lawyer.
Why Wesley chose to attend the FAMU College of Law:
I came to FAMU College of Law because I am a Rattler at heart! I am a third generation Rattler as my grandparents and father attended FAMU. My love for FAMU is deeper than most people will understand but only evident as this will be my third time graduating from this great institution, as I have received a Bachelors, Masters, and Juris Doctorate from FAMU. So I came to FAMU because I truly believe there is no greater school or university for me.
Advice Wesley would give to a future FAMU Law student:
Remember to run YOUR OWN RACE! Itís not a sprint but a marathon. And to always remember that itís not how you start but how your finish!
A quote or saying that is important to Wesley, which helps him accomplish his goals:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” ñ Philippians 4:13
