I recommend Trey all the time--to friends and colleagues to strangers I happen to connect with in casual conversation. In fact, that's how I heard of him. I made a connection with someone who was receiving his services in a divorce case and she told me he was brilliant and she was enjoying working with him. Several months later I was in a car accident. I spoke to several lawyers in depth and felt discouraged by their dispassion. I ran into the person who referred me to him again and she gave me his card. She also gave me the update on her case and from that point on I was determined to have Trey as my attorney.
My car accident was devastating...I was in physical therapy for nine months in excruciating pain. There was no part of my life that was not damaged or affected by it. I was overwhelmed by everything and needed a lawyer, someone who I could rely on to take care of the problem for me, to advocate for me. Trey took over immediately.
One thing that is unique about Trey is that you get his direct number. I never spoke to or was even aware if he had a receptionist. I could call him or text himwhenever I needed to and received a prompt response. He had and has many cases, but you will feel like you are his only client. He called me on weekends and late in the evening--he seemed to always be working on MY case.
I did not have to worry about anything. Trey already had it covered. He was very knowledgable and let me offer input, as well as ask any question I needed to, even if it was something very obvious. He had tremendous patience, is very likeable, confident, reassuring and proactive. I had total faith in Trey from the outset and he never gave me a moment's concern.
Another thing every client Trey has will notice about him is that he is a master chess player in legal maneuvering. As far as advocating for you, Trey will stack the deck in your favor and consider all angles in advance. Whenever we would speak, he had an update for me. The updates were always something interesting and positive. I was impressed with his genius, but the next time I spoke to him, he'd done even better in negotiating than I had expected from the last time I spoke to him. He seem surprised by my reaction...Trey is very humble and I don't think he realizes how clever he truly is. Butt I do know that Trey is brilliant and I know he enjoys his job. I think it's obvious that Trey's drive to help people brings him joy and he enjoys dealing with obstacles. I think he thrives on difficult situations.
Trey is shrewd. I never anticipated that my accident would become so physically devastating, but I also never anticipated hat I would find a lawyer that would do all for me that he did. The resolution to my case surprised and delighted me...after all I had been through, he negotiated a settlement that took care of everything, and each time I spoke to him, again, he had even better news.
One thing I must say is that Trey is so clever that it is almost entertaining. I would love to watch him litigate. I have asked him to write a book. I hear so much from friends who have dealt with issues in the fields of his expertise. Their lawyers are dispassionate, difficult to contact, unmotivated and prioritize cases in a way that made them feel disenfranchised. Not me. I never felt that way. He was the ONLY bright spot in this whole ordeal. I felt I was in such good hands that my only problem was just to focus on recovery.
One other thing--I made Trey promise me he would never represent someone against me. He is not someone I would want to go up against, and I do not think there's an attorney I would think was proactive or clever enough to best him. I certainly have never heard of one.
Please excuse the typos. This box does not let me go back to correct the mistakes.

Trey helped us with my brother's divorce. He was extremely thoughtful, helpful, and when we needed him at the spur of the moment, he was there.
It was the most enjoyable experience I have had with a lawyer. I'd highly recommend him.

I absolutely loved that the first time I called, Trey answered the phone instead of a receptionist. He was very informative and willing to take time to answer all of my questions. I actually needed the agreement a lot faster than I had expected. Trey was wonderful enough to process the agreement in an amazing amount of time. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

I feel that Trey truly cared about my case and always had my best interest at heart. It took a while to get a date with the court, and he never lost patience with my questions or concerns. He was always prompt about returning my phone calls and emails, and was very professional while still showing compassion. I would highly recommend his services, as he fought for me throughout the entire process.

Anyone on the fence, trying to select a good attorney from a crowd of passe and unknown attorney's let it be known, Trey Marlborough does NOT put forth 110%, he doesn't quit there, based on my expectations, Trey put forth 150%. When I suggested we can relax now, he would not. I think I am a smart guy being a 55 year old professional engineer but I learned from Trey that I only knew enough to get myself in allot of trouble. It took some time but my confidence in Trey grew very quickly... like "Compelled". I learned that you can have what you think is a hands down, tons of objective evidence, slam dunk case but if the opposition has a good attorney, they can twist the law and you can still lose the case. Having a good attorney and one who knows the law and how to do research and "Forensics" is absolutely required, or it is a roll of the dice at best. Trey adapted to constantly changing tactics from a team of lawyers from one of the top corporate law firms in this major metropolitan area. Trey early on defined multiple ways to "strategically" present the case and then "tactically" fine tune changes in stride and thwart what seemed to be a limitless budget of resources on the opposing defense. For several days prior to and during 3 days of court Trey worked late every night, even into the morning hours some nights, adapting to their morphing tactics, laming them in every respect. I hate to say it but court appears to this layman to be an elaborate chess game that Trey has become very adept at.
Trey welcomes client participation and support. I supported him best I could and let him steer. I have put my foot in my mouth several times and Trey is very forgiving and explains reasons why and why not, very well. He is a very good communicator. I am a 55 year old "Geezer" engineer and I was amazed at Trey's ability to learn and retain the details of a very complex case quickly. There was a tremendous amount of detail in my case and in short order he was completely familiar with everything, how it all unfolded and fit together. He has a remarkable memory for voluminous emails, events and details that spanned almost 3 years. Trey exhibited forensic analysis that Sherlock Holmes would be proud of; in the final days of preparation and in cooperation with one top notch engineering expert witness, Trey discovered a paper trail that proved illegal activity by the defendant that was weak previously, and thereby made the most valuable part of the case. Even one of the defendants own expert engineering witnesses was "Surprised" by these facts during his testimony, embarrassing and severely damaging he defendants case. The defendants with a seemingly limitless budget bought in a circus of fact and expert witnesses (we had only one). In testimony / cross examination he successfully turned just about every witness for the defense to our favor buy revealing slanted reports, diluting their credibility/ indicating perjury, etc...
Trey was always very professional, polite and respectful, even in the face of what I called a very experienced "Screamer" attorney in opposing counsels team of litigators. The more Trey thwarted their attempts to legally bar us or otherwise reduce our credibility, the more the opposing counsel lost control and embarrassed themselves. And while Trey depends on knowledge of the law and evidence, in addition, he appears to be lucky... like "someone up there likes him". It was like Samson and Goliath, a single counselor against a mammoth team from one of the most powerful law firms in Huntsville. He is wise beyond his years and anyone would be lucky to have him accept their case for litigation. He deserves allot of respect and the only reason I don't refer to him as Mr. or Counselor Marlborough is because we have become friends in the process. We were blessed to have Trey represent us in this matter. I have asked Trey not to post my contact information publicly but allowed him to pass it on personally as he sees fit for professional reference purposes.
