Michael T. Trent is an experienced attorney with an active practice including criminal defense, general civil litigation including personal injury, and estate planning including wills and estates.
His love for our Southside Virginia community is deep, with not only his growing up in Charlotte County, but with the vast majority of his family having called all different parts of Southside home.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from Lynchburg College, Mike received his Juris Doctorate from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, Massachusetts. He then decided to come home to Southside, and began working as an Assistant Public Defender.
At the PD office, he focused at different times on both Halifax and Mecklenburg Counties, until joining Blair to start the Trent Law Practice. Now, he loves combining his training and experience with his devotion to this area in offering quality legal representation at affordable rates.
In addition to his dedication to the practice of law, Mike has and continues to be just as dedicated to serving our community in all sorts of other ways.
Over the years, he has regularly volunteered as a coach in local youth sports, been involved in the granting of scholarships for our young people, served as President of the Halifax County Bar Association, and been involved with local civic organizations such as the Lions Club and the Halifax Village Association.
He serves as a vestry leader at St John’s Episcopal Church in Halifax and as a councilman for the Town of Halifax. Mike is the proud father of the same busy boy you might see at the office.
