Trey Hendershot

Managing Shareholder

As a business owner or partner, you have worked tirelessly to build a livelihood that you are passionate about and proud of. The assistance of an experienced attorney can help ensure that your business has the right guidance to protect your assets. As the managing shareholder of Hendershot, Cowart & Hisey, P.C., my goal is to look out for the best interest of our clients by utilizing our many years of combined experience practicing business law, business litigation, health law and regulatory compliance. Our tagline is: "Your Attorney. Your Team. Your Law Firm For Life." And that's true. It's my approach to client service that lays the foundation for our opportunity and success.

Our Business Law Team is Dedicated to Your Success

This fosters active involvement with you and your business interests and legal challenges. Simply put, I am genuinely excited about building your venture, or in resolving your legal challenge, as is every attorney who works here. We work to exceed your expectations using our experience, knowledge and expertise. This is our commitment to you, so that you can be as successful as possible.

My Goals Are Based On Your Goals

My decision to practice law was inspired by the strong work ethic of my father and grandfather. Being a successful attorney requires dedication and experience. Whether it's reviewing an employment contract or defending against patent infringement claims, I am continuously seeking the best possible outcome for you and your business. Knowing my client's ultimate intentions and objectives is what drives me.

I have a wide range of experience, from taking clients from startup to full operation, to helping file initial incorporation papers, to multimillion-dollar concerns. Additionally, I have executed mergers and acquisitions, as well as the purchase and sale of business. Many clients our firm has represented for decades continue to flourish with our continued guidance. For the inevitable litigation that comes up along the way, I've helped these same clients enforce their rights, defend themselves when facing suit, and provided the regulatory advice they need to prevent future problems.

Whether in litigation or transactions, I strive to provide efficient, effective, and responsive legal representation in addressing all of your needs, and my firm uses today's technology to do so. In short, that is what we mean by aggressive representation.

Clients Receive the Attention of All Attorneys

Every week, each practice section collaborates as a team to discuss the various aspects of your case. Every attorney participates and is encouraged to provide input, even if that attorney is not the one who is actively working on your case. This approach allows us to create unique solutions to the success of your venture, or in resolving your legal challenge. Our business attorneys may offer their perspective in a divorce that involves a family-owned business, and vice-versa. My entire law firm's resources, expertise, and experience come into play to resolve these types of scenarios.

My Faith is the Ethical Foundation for How I Operate My Law Firm

I am not shy about my faith. I am a Christian. I was born and raised Baptist and have played an active role in the church for most of my life. Faith plays a major role in my approach to client service and case preparation. We don't cut corners. We are adamant about doing the best job that we can for you. And when the work is done, I personally review our clients' monthly bills and efforts recorded to be sure that you received the benefit for which you were billed. Not every law firm can make this claim.

Working Toward Your Continued Success

I only wish to continue to gain the trust and confidence of the business owners, executives, and entrepreneurs I have the privilege of representing, and for whom I can help achieve opportunity and success. I want to take you to the next level in your venture. This is what I have done for so many of my friends and clients in nearly three decades as a business lawyer.

There have been times when I was scared, confused, unsure and doubtful but you helped me through all of it and I was able to put a lot of things behind me because of your hard work and diligence. For the countless hours of preparation, mediations, planning, scanning, etc.; I cannot say thank you enough. Yesterday I saw excellence, when you asked the right questions at the right time and picked battles wisely. Now I get a chance to hit the reset button on my life and I couldn't be more elated! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!"

    - K.H.

  • "We had to hire lawyers to finish a divorce QDRO from 20 years ago. This law firm was the most pleasant legal experience we have ever had, the courtesy, competent, efficient, excellent staff was AWESOME to work with, Lori Blackwell, Holly, and all the others that answered emails, questions, can't say enough kind words about this team of experts, would gladly refer to anyone who needs great, honest, efficient lawyers. Thanks to everyone, it's gratefully appreciated."

    - Chuck
  • "Thank you very much for your help, advise, and guidance...given the situation. You and your firm have been very helpful since day one. All my questions were answered. Not having gone through this, and not knowing what to expect, your help was given to me in ways I could understand clearly and accurately. I am very appreciative about that. My family and I are very pleased with the outcome. If I happen to come across anyone who needs someone to represent them in these rough family situations, I will definitely recommend you and your firm and send them your way."

    - Brittany M.
  • "I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your firm for your work on my recent divorce. Your professionalism and thorough handling of my case was so appreciated and very refreshing. You did your homework better than I had and truly opened my eyes to things I would have missed without your attention to detail. We prepared for the worst, hoped for the best and quite frankly, ended up as close to the best as could have been achieved. Beyond the great job you did though and perhaps the most important aspect of my want to say thank you is how I feel now and how I felt in your office. This brutal thing of divorce is tough and quite frankly, something I never want to go through again but y'all softened the blow for me through your care, concern, friendship and support. I've dealt with your firm forever it seems and the personal touch and caring way of it continues in you, Trey and all who I dealt with. Again, thank you so very much for your work on my case but more than that, for caring about me."

    - James M.
  • "Thank you very much for helping my client. I found your firm online and spoke over the phone for the first time and find out immediately it was the right firm for my client. My client was very happy with all your staff. We appreciate your hard work and understanding since for immigrants it’s not easy to understand the legal system, especially with the language barrier. YOU ARE AWESOME ATTORNEYS! THANK YOU!"
