    Attorney Mike Trent helped me dismissed and expunged my case charged with second degree felony. It was about injury to child, a false setup triggered by reckless family members and amplified by unreasonable local police department.

    I was locked and hold from dawn in police station and then transferred to the downtown building basement at evening until got bonded out after midnight. It was a miserable adventure because PD treat the locked up people in a very miserable way, little food, no water, cold and concrete bench, maybe just want to make people feel they never want to come back again and be tortured in those miserable places.

    I was very lucky that I didn’t throw away the name card of Attorney Trent my ride driver gave me at 2 am. In those a few days before my first court appearance, I talked to several attorneys and decided to sign the contract with Attorney Mike Trent immediately after we spoke. I hoped his many years DA experience on criminal cases especially child abuse could help me out of the mess. It turn out that he took care of me fantastically.

    Mike babysit me through the legal process with perfect instructions and advices at each step of court attendance. He instructed me and my family how to speak properly against questioning, chasing and squeezing from the DA prosecutor on my case. When I got any worries and questions in my mind, I just texted my thoughts to Mike through phone, and he would answer me with proper and detailed instructions and explanations to calm me down so that I would know exactly what was going to happen next and be patient. When CPS started chase me at home and my kids at school, yes, it was very humiliating and offensive to my kids in front of school teachers and other kids. Mike even offered to handle CPS talking on behalf of me and everything was taken care of properly until CPS left me and kids alone. Mike also taught me how to work out with hiring manager for the purpose of HR background check when I had to switch to a new job.

    Mike had been in the district court environment for about 20 years on both dark side and bright side, as either a DA for 15 years or a defendant attorney after then. He is a legal professional, and he knows the entire process and how the legal system works. He knows well those people network who run the legal system, the judges and the DAs. Of course the judges and prosecutors know him well also because they used to work together as colleagues. His familiarity with prosecutors and their personalities and behaviors helped a lot to make the case solving much smoother.

    After all, Mike and his defendant, I in this case, form a short-term partnership, we had to team up and made things work out as our most favorable and we did it perfectly. Each penny of the attorney fee worth it even it was an upfront charge onetime payment contract. I even consider the attorney fee to Mike had made much better return to cost ratio when compared to that of property tax paid to county, and those of health care insurance and payment.

    I greatly appreciate Mike’s professional help on my case and will definitely use his help again if needed in the future, and I won’t hesitate to recommend Attorney Mike Trent to my friends or anyone else who need his help. Actually I did recommend his name to two of my friends with similar troubles, and utilized the knowledge I learned from Mike help one friend out of his similar mess as well, i.e. his case was also dismissed and cleared in another county.

    Teachers are often vulnerable to accusations of misconduct with students. When it happened to me, Michal Trent was strongly recommended so I retained him. He advised me very well to keep me from making any mistakes that could harm my case. He dealt with investigators and a prosecutor with exactly the right approach, convincing them to decline to file charges and close the case.

    I had heard that a case like mine with an accusation but no evidence can stay open for years, but Mr. Trent got it closed in under three months. He charged me for less than five hours of work and cheerfully refunded the majority of my retainer. I was skeptical when he told me at our initial meeting that he cares about his clients but he was genuinely happy to have gotten the best result possible for me even though he could have made more money if the case had gone to court.

    Thanks, Mike!

    I can't explain well enough how incredible of an attorney Michael Trent is. I have used his services twice and he was able to exceed my needs both times. Just his presence in the court room demands respect and admiration from both his peers and other defendants. His experience in the DA's office is evident and his working relationships move him to the front of the line in any given circumstance. Lawyers are busy and often difficult to form any sort of bond with or even feel they empathize or completely understand your situation. Michael was available to me at any time, any day. His upfront pricing and contracts are an added incentive to working with such a professional. You would be remiss not to hire Michael as your attorney.

    I was charged with my first DWI , spent my night Downtown. I was released by bond and walking outside to meet my ride where a Gentlemen ask me if I had a lawyer I said no . He then gave me a card said call this guy. I will say from the first phone call with Mr Trent was a pleasure as he was on point from the get go . He advise me with hi wisdom and I set back and followed . I would text him when ever i needed .He was super responsive with my answer / needs . That tells me he was taking of my needs even when i didnt call . My case was dismissed in a little over 3 months . I highly recommend using Mr Trent for your needs as Im not planning on it but will use him in a heart beat . I respected the upfront honesty and hard work in what he set out to do . Thanks Mr Trent

    Words can express how valuable was for me. Unfortunately i had to use his services twice. He gave me common sense solutions to my legal trouble. Once he is hired he is always there, never at a loss for legal and life advice. I stand here as a better man for hiring Mike instead of one of the other "bells & whisles" attorney that flood you mail box with advertising. Highly recommended.

  • DWI Dismissed...but more than that.

    I was pulled over and arrested for DWI and thrown in jail over the weekend. I did not know what to do or think, I was scared. I was given Michael's information and he immediately made me feel I was in good hands which allowed me to go on with my work and personal life. I paid him one time just like he said and he spent 18 months fighting for me...When I got in a bad place personally he was professional and supportive. Long story short...multiple substances were found when I gave blood to the police and Michael got the case thrown out. He always took my calls, I never once got his voicemail, he responded to any questions I had via text and kept me informed. If anyone else in my family gets into trouble we will be calling Mr. Trent. Thank you Mike.

    I hired Mike Trent to handle a very serious, false allegation of rape, someone controlling was making against me. He dealt with the detective on my behalf, protected my rights, and made sure that the case was closed and that charges were never even filed. He saved me from being labeled as a sex offender. He is a great attorney and worth every penny!!"
