Trevor Wade Colvin
Trevor Wade Colvin was born and raised in a small town in Warren County, Pennsylvania. As a child, he often saw companies take advantage of people in his community. His pursuit of justice for the injured is powered by his desire to help individuals facing crisis.
Trevor attended Slippery Rock University in Pennsylvania, where he majored in political science. He was an exemplary student and a regular on the dean’s list for his outstanding academic performance. Trevor was also a member of the political science honor society and received the outstanding senior award. He graduated summa cum laude in 2012.
While working on his J.D. at the University of Toledo College of Law, Trevor threw himself into the practical side of the law. Rather than focusing on writing for the law review, he turned to moot court to get a handle on the actual practice of law. His dedication was clear as he practiced on the Sports Law Moot Court team, earning a spot in the quarter-finals in the Tulane Mardi Gras Sports Law Invitational, a moot court competition with such prestigious competitors as Duke University School of Law and UC Hastings. Trevor and his teammate’s brief placed fourth in the competition. This commitment to practice continues in Trevor’s work as he fights for his clients.
Trevor has worked in personal injury law since his graduation in 2015. He joined Winters & Yonker in 2016 and is a member of the Florida Bar Association and the American Bar Association. Trevor is committed to seeking justice for his clients. His goal is to always get the most for his clients and to leave them in a better position.
Outside of his responsibilities at Winters & Yonker, Trevor worked as a contractor for the American Bar Association on a public interest project, The National Inventory of Collateral Consequences of Conviction (NICCC). The NICCC database aims to provide information about the various legal and regulatory sanctions that individuals convicted of certain crimes may face as they attempt to gain employment, locate housing, further their education, and more.
While unrelated to the civil court proceedings that make up his life as a personal injury lawyer, Trevor understands the impact that a criminal record can have on someone’s life and appreciated the opportunity to help gather that information into a usable database that is freely available to everyone. His hope is that individuals with criminal records will be able to use it to make informed decisions about their futures, such as which vocational programs to take.
