He also became one of the most requested speakers at continuing legal educational events, for Executive Board members and Community Managers, in presentation through Community Association's Institute ("CAI"), and CAMEO; sanctioned by the State of Nevada for continuing education credit for Community Managers. He was selected by the CAMEO and LVHCA to represent those organizations through that firm.

Prior to entering the practice of CIC law, Attorney Wright spent over six years employed at a large, international communications company. He held several increasingly advanced Executive Director positions until becoming General Counsel.  He assisted the original General Counsel in managing the expansion of the company's in-house legal department from an initial two attorneys and five support personnel, to seventeen attorneys and over one hundred support personnel, in an eighteen month period.

Attorney Wright has also worked as in-house counsel for an international corporation providing health care personnel recruiting and placement, representing the corporation before various regulatory agencies including the Immigration and Naturalization Service ("INS"), and writing portions of federal immigration law for adoption by the United States Congress; as a sole practitioner in the areas of personal injury litigation, fair debt and collections practices, general practice civil litigation and consultation to other law firms on personal injury practice; and as an associate attorney for law firms in the areas of commercial collections, personal injury, bankruptcy, probate, and general practice civil litigation.
