Lu Ann Trevino

About me

This website has finally added  my favorite area of practice which is consumer rights.  My passion is helping consumers exercise their rights to fair treatment in the marketplace.  You don't have to accept deception and unfair treatment from credit card companies, mortgage companies, car dealers, or any other vendor or service provider.  Preventing bankruptcy makes me smile. 


As part of my passion for helping "regular" people, I am expanding my employment law practice.  If you feel you have suffered impermissible discrimination at work, I would be happy to discuss your situation and possible solutions.


I am a veteran (regular Army) 1973-1976.  I lived and worked in Nigeria 1981-1984.
