Trent represents sophisticated clients in civil litigation and appeals. He has first- or second-chaired several criminal jury trials during a secondment to the local county attorney’s office, and he was recently a member of the trial team in a successful, two-week jury trial in a complex, medical-device patent case. Trent also has extensive experience taking fact- and expert-witness depositions, coordinating and leading several other attorneys in fact development, document production, and witness preparation, and drafting, responding to, and orally arguing a wide range of dispositive and non-dispositive motions.
Besides his prior experience as an associate at two renowned law firms in Denver and Washington, D.C., Trent was a law clerk to The Honorable D. Brooks Smith on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Trent lives in Lincoln with his wife and three children and enjoys playing tennis, trap shooting, and reading (especially American frontier novels).
