Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

After graduating from high school in Charlotte, Trey attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Focused on attending law school and becoming a litigator, he pursued degrees in philosophy (with a focus on the ethicists) and political science. He graduated with Highest Distinction (ranking in the top three percent of 3% of his class) and was inducted as a member of Phi Beta Kappa.

Trey returned to Chapel Hill for law school and Trey served on the Attorney General’s Staff for the law school’s Honor Court and was a member of the North Carolina Law Review. Upon graduating with Honors and passing the bar in 2003, Trey returned to Charlotte where he has practiced civil litigation ever since. From 2012 through 2016, Trey was named a Rising Star in Business Litigation by North Carolina Super Lawyer’s Magazine. He was named a Rising Star in Estate and Trust Litigation and a Super Lawyer in 2017. These honors are awarded to fewer than two and one-half percent (2.5%) of all lawyers across the State of North Carolina. Trey was named a Super Lawyer in Estate and Trust Litigation by Super Lawyer’s Magazine every year from 2018 through 2024. Trey was also recognized by Business North Carolina Magazine as a Legal Elite in Litigation in 2021 and 2024, a distinction awarded to fewer than four percent (4%) of the state’s practicing attorneys. In February 2014, the Charlotte Business Journal honored Trey by naming him to their 40 Under 40 list, which recognizes the top business leaders under the age of 40 in the Charlotte region.

With over a decade of experience and after becoming a partner in other firms, Trey organized Lord & Lindl, PLLC in March 2024.
