Trevor brings a unique perspective to working at Kentucky Injury Law Center—he started his career working for the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy as a Public Defender. He represented people who couldn’t afford a lawyer on all types of criminal matters. After leaving the Department of Public Advocacy in 2009, Trevor dedicated his career to the Family Courts in South Central Kentucky.
On top of his experience in the criminal justice system, Trevor has represented individuals in well over one thousand disputed domestic matters, including divorce and custody, neglect and abuse, and the termination of parental rights. This means that there are few people involved in the Kentucky court system who Trevor hasn’t either helped or dealt with on a case.
In addition to working as an associate and helping the other Kentucky Injury Law Center lawyers with personal injury and workers’ compensation cases, Trevor is the lead lawyer for the firm’s social security disability practice. Sometimes, hard-working, dependable people never get back to work after an accident. When that happens, our social security department can help those clients recover life-saving benefits (including Medicare) that they’ve earned through their hard work over the years.
Trevor believes that lawyers should be down to earth, hardworking, and easy to talk to. Often, if he’s not in court, he is wearing a sports jersey. Due to his long history helping clients, Trevor knows how to talk to anyone and explain complicated legal issues to them. Trevor provides realistic, personalized advice that keeps in mind the bigger pictures in each client’s life. Trevor understands that no two cases and no two clients are the same, no matter how similar their cases may appear.
Trevor has a strong opinion on what lawyers shouldn’t do: Lawyers shouldn’t profit or take unnecessary risks at the expense of the client for the lawyer’s own personal gains. Trevor makes sure that his clients are armed with the appropriate knowledge about the context of their case to feel empowered to make the best decision to suit them.
When Trevor isn’t working, he enjoys cooking new types of food, rooting for football teams (both types), and spending time with his wife and kids at soccer fields throughout Kentucky. He also loves to vacation in the hills of Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina exploring new hiking trails and enjoying the outdoors.
