Rated By Super Lawyers | Cheryl Trine | 5 Years


I became a lawyer after performing public interest work for many years in which I was an advocate for people in my community. In doing that work, I fought against those far more wealthy and more powerful. My purpose in becoming a lawyer was to become a better advocate for people who are up against big government, big insurance companies, and big business.

My goal first and foremost is to give you good advice. From the first time you speak with me, I want you to feel comfortable that you can trust me and you will hear the honest truth. If I agree to represent you, then we are a partnership and I value your opinions and will work just as hard as I can to bring you the best resolution possible. I am accessible and practical, and I care very deeply for my clients.
