Personal Injury/Wrongful Death:
People sometimes ask why it might be more effective to have an attorney who handles criminal defense and who has a prosecutor's background represent them in a personal injury or wrongful death case. The answer may not be obvious for those that don't find themselves in court frequently. The truth is that criminal defense lawyers and prosecutors are in court much more and have significantly more trial experience than most attorneys who just handle personal injury cases. Trey has won numerous wrongful death and personal injury jury trials in Kansas and Missouri and won significant verdicts for his clients including clients injured in car and truck accident cases. In addition to several jury verdicts, Trey has worked to gain tremendous settlements for his clients in numerous other cases including gas explosions, mauling injuries from dog bites, nursing home and day care negligence cases. Trey is a also one of a very select few attorneys in Kansas or Missouri selected to the Million Dollar Advocates forum.
Trey is admitted to practice in Missouri, Kansas, the United States District Courts for Missouri and Kansas and the United States Supreme Court. He's tried jury trials in Kansas, Missouri and Federal Court. Trey has deposed experts from California to Maine building the absolute best cases for his clients.
