What Our Clients Are Saying

  • Very Professional and Knowledgeable


    Trevor Carson at Rooted Legal PC is very professional and knowledgeable. Trevor took the time to answer my questions and explained the process of starting a new business. Trevor filed all the necessary paperwork in a timely manner, actually under very short notice and got our company up and running effortless. We definitely recommend Trevor and Rooted Legal PC. - Rosy H.

  • Awesome Person


    Trevor is just an awesome person to work with. I used to have multiple restaurant businesses before COVID 19 hit. He took care of me when our restaurant group and one of our vendors had disputed invoices. Since I had multiple locations, it was a lot of money involved. He was able to point out some of the frivolous claims made by an opposing lawyer and got them dismissed by the court right away. Also when COVID 19 hit our restaurant business hard, he was the guy who stood by me and handled multiple lease contracts with multiple landlords like a champion. He was able to work out some amazing deals with our landlords for our restaurant group amid COVID 19. Did I say he was an awesome person to work with? Not only is he savvy about business law, but also he owns a cool looking bike. Ask him about it when you talk to him. As you can tell, he and I have established a long-term business relationship. Running a successful business requires having an awesome business lawyer. I highly recommend Trevor to anyone who owns the business. - Jason K.

  • A Sense of Ease and Calm


    I first met Trevor when my family owned small business was hit with its' first ever lawsuit nearly 10 years ago. 30+ years and 800 houses and never a complaint. Then accusations and frivolous claims of faulty employee behavior. Just meeting him and having him take the reins from that stressful situation, and frightening run-away train, helped me sleep at night. At the end of the day (after some months of frivolous motions by the other side's attorney) he sent me home with a win and a sense of ease and calm. I can't thank him enough for helping over the years with all sorts of legal jams for my business and my family personally. I feel very blessed to have found Trevor Carson. I believe I first got his name from watching some video online about charity work and being impressed with how he treated the less fortunate. If it is legal relief you seek in any form, ask Trevor, he won't leave you needing more. - Jennie K.
