  • John E. Flor

    Trey is a consummate professional. He does what he says will be done. He pays attention to detail and works hard towards obtaining winning results for clients. I had a client who was arrested in Birmingham for drug possession with intent. I knew Mr. Marlborough from law school and put the two in touch. Attorney Marlborough successfully argued a motion to suppress and got the case against my client dismissed.
