Trent is tenacious in his representation of his clients. His knowledge of the law and dedication to obtaining justice for his clients is unsurpassed. He always goes the extra mile to win and truly cares about his clients. Seeing him in action in the courtroom was like watching one of the great legal thrillers, only better. Trent is definitely in a class of his own and I would highly recommend him.
