Attorney Trevor S. Potts was born and raised on the island of Oahu in the state of Hawai’i. He obtained his B.A. in Psychology from the University of San Diego in 2008, and his Juris Doctorate from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in 2014. There, Mr. Potts was on distinguished honor roll and won the CALI Excellence for the Future Award, the Witkin Award, and the Jefferson Medal for Sports Law. He was also the chapter president of the National Lawyers Guild and a member of the Pro Bono Honors Society. Upon graduation, Mr. Potts received his certification from the Center for Law and Social Justice at Thomas Jefferson School of Law.


While attending law school, Mr. Potts had the tremendous opportunity to intern for the San Diego County Public Defender’s Office, the Law Office of Marc Kohnen, Rockwood and Noziska LLP, and the Singelton Law Firm. During his time with the Public Defender, he was able to assist on cases ranging from homicides to drug-related offenses. In his last semester of law school, before obtaining his law license, he successfully drafted and argued a motion to suppress evidence (PC § 1538.5), which eventually lead to dismissal of his client's case.

Attorney Potts’ legal experience began at an early age. His father began his legal career as a criminal defense attorney and has been a civil litigator for over 40 years in Honolulu, Hawai’i. Attorney Potts has experience in criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, including DUIs, murders, drug offenses, domestic violence, elder abuse, sex crimes, and firearm offenses.

Able to do what others couldn't
I had a 2nd DUI in California a few years ago and had been living abroad. I had a warrant issued for failure to appear in court after my extension to complete the multiple conviction had expired. Trevor Potts had the warrant successfully recalled before I returned to the USA. I then moved to New York and wanted to complete an out of state program to satisfy my probation. I spoke to multiple lawyers who all said that I would need to physically return to California, schedule a meeting with interstate compact, then return to California again for the meeting. This would be two cross country flights and the process would likely take over a month. Trevor Potts was able to successfully get my out of state program approved without my returning to San Diego, saving me hundreds of dollars in flights as well as tons of my time. No other lawyer in California has ever been able to get their client into an out of state DUI program without going through interstate compact—which you have to physically be present for. I cannot say how happy I was with the result and how grateful I was of Mr. Potts determination. He was able to accomplish what all other lawyers said was not possible in my case.

Hard Working, Honest, Caring
Earlier this year (Spring 2016) I had found myself in a legal situation charged with several criminal offenses. As soon as we got a hold of Trevor he gave my family and I some peace of mind. He is incredibly knowledgeable, and good at what he does. He vigorously fought for me in my case until the very end, getting me the most desirable out come out of my situation, and I could not be any happier. He is very honest, hard working, and truly cared about me and getting the best outcome for my case. He guided me through the whole process, and answered any and every single question that I had. This was truly a learning experience and having gone through it I recommend Trevor Potts to anyone that is facing any kind of criminal charges.

Honest, personable and effective
Attorney Potts was recommended to me and I am highly recommending him to anyone. He is very likeable has a way of calming the client, even in a highly charged emotional situation. He takes a complex legal situation and explains it in no-nonsense easy to understand language. He doesn't sugar coat or exaggerate. You know where you stand legally. Obviously he respects the law and you, his client. He makes you feel like you are the most important client he has. He gets back to you by text, phone or email right away and he is very accessible. He's confident, but not smug. None of the nasty attorney jokes apply to him. You know you are in good hands right away. He handled our case with absolute professionalism and personal service. He's very respected and got great results. I highly recommend him to everyone and will definitely use him again.

Trust Worthy, dedicated no nonsense get it done!
Trust worthy, dedicated no nonsense get it done that’s Trevor Potts. He has been very patient with me and my lack of knowledge of the legal field and has taken the time to explain my situation and make sure that I understand everything that is going on with my case. On top of that he made things happen in my favor and was able to resolve the case in a timely manner. I can’t recommend him enough!

Honest, Aggressive and truly Cares!
These days finding those three words when picking a lawyer is like hoping to win the lottery, chances are slim to none. However, with Trevor we got those three words and more. Trevor has gone completely above and beyond to make sure we felt at ease with our situation, and he will fight continuously for you to get the best possible outcome. Trevor treats his clients with complete respect; he listens and provides the best possible feedback without sugar coating anything. He is definitely a great lawyer and worth having on your side!
