Results-driven, powerful, yet personable
Tre Lovell has worked tirelessly for us, a very large group of plaintiffs who were betrayed by a former legal counselor. When I first met Tre in December 2009, I was struck by his attentiveness, his near immediate assessment of our situation, and his warmth. Tre is an attorney that is trustworthy, dedicated, brilliant, yet humble (humble unless you are in opposition to those he is defending!). His communication with us is comprehensive, realistic and is easily understood by lay persons. He cares deeply and is very committed to securing justice for injustice. I highly recommend his firm and am confident that you will find his legal support exemplary.

Expert and trustworthy
Tre Lovell is not only an expert attorney, he’s a great person. I appreciate too much his professional advice. I’ll work with him whenever I need his professional service. He provided the best and wisest advice for my nonprofit corporation about some trademark issues.

Tre is on point!
Tre is and has always been on his game! Though I've never met him in person, I've had many a phone calls with him over the past 5 years and he's always made time for me. He works and works hard for his clients. He cares about each of his clients no matter how much the end user may have at stake. He comes highly recommended!

Tenacious lawyer
Tre Lovell has been the lawyer for our rather large group for several years. He keeps us well informed as the case continues along several avenues. It is a rather complicated case but we all remain optimistic that it will be resolved in our favor. Even though ours is not his only case he keeps us well informed and travels to northern calif to meet with us as needed.

Competent & Strong!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Carl "Tre" Lovell to anyone who has an important case that they have to win! Tre represented myself and other key executives in a very emotional employer vs. employee case with grace and competency and got me an outstanding result: every dime that was owed to me, including significant damages and interest! He was tough when he needed to be and worked well with opposing counsel, which undoubtedly was critical in getting me my Judgment and eventually paid in full.

Professional, Legal Counsel with Integrity
Carl "Tre" Lovell, of The Lovell Firm, has served as corporate counsel for our company for many years on a variety of legal matters and lastly represented our company in a complex construction related arbitration case involving breach of contract by a General Contractor. Despite our opponent being represented by a major law firm specializing in construction litigation, the arbitrator ultimately found in our favor that resulted in a large award to us due to Tre’s legal expertise. Tre and I worked closely together to secure our advantage. He was always accessible, returning calls promptly, organized with a clear picture of the specifics of our case, and most importantly, a thorough understanding of the relevant laws and code sections. Tre is simply a pleasure to work with and trusted advisor to our business. He appreciates the importance of putting our company in the best position to resolve disputes and reduce the disruption to our business and employees. This quality work is performed at a cost that is reasonable and significantly less than the big law firms.
