Trevor A. Zandell

Since graduating with honors from law school in 2005, Trevor A. Zandell has been serving the legal needs of businesses, individuals, and families across Southwest Washington. He has earned the confidence and admiration of hundreds of clients who have faced legal challenges ranging from boundary line disputes to business purchases and sales—clients who tell you that “Trevor is the best,” that “his legal work is excellent,” and that “he is always prepared for every step of the process.”

When it comes to helping clients clear up what he calls “often exceedingly contentious and complicated disputes,” Trevor places a high premium on thorough preparation, meticulous attention to detail, thoughtful planning, and an exhaustive knowledge of the ins and outs of each and every case.

“My clients frequently come to me under extreme duress that is negatively impacting all aspects of their lives,” this lifelong Washingtonian notes. “It is satisfying to see how their demeanor and attitudes shift as their legal burden is lifted over the course of our engagement.”

“I put in the hard work necessary to get the job done. I am thorough and detailed — and do my best to leave no stone unturned. This attention to detail typically leads to great success for my clients.”
         — Trevor Zandell      

While building an impressive litigation practice, Trevor has been active in an array of industry and charitable groups. He is current board member and past president of the Thurston County Bar Association, past board president for United Way of Thurston County, and past vice president of the board of directors for SafePlace, a nonprofit serving survivors of domestic and sexual violence. In addition, in 2015 and again in 2019 was named a Rising Star® by Super Lawyers®, a research-driven, peer-influenced rating service recognizing no more than 2.5% of attorneys under age 40 nationwide.
