Trey Smith

Attorney

Born and raised in Georgia, Trey chose the Atlanta area to begin his law practice in the areas of Criminal Defense and Workers’ Compensation. He attended Georgia College & State University for his undergraduate education, earning degrees in Political Science and Rhetoric, and then went on to obtain his law degree from the Mercer University Walter F. George School of Law, graduating in 2016.

From an early age, Trey learned that he had a penchant for problem-solving and a passion for helping others. During law school, Trey clerked for both a district attorney’s office, as well as a criminal defense attorney, and focused heavily on the litigation area of criminal practice. After law school, Trey clerked for the Georgia Attorney General’s Office in the area of Workers’ Compensation. Seeing the need for representation of defendants in criminal cases, Trey has dedicated his practice to helping the wrongfully-accused. Trey represents and protects defendants throughout the state of Georgia every day by defending their constitutional rights against criminal accusations.

In his free time, Trey enjoys running half marathons, hiking in the North Georgia mountains, grilling, cheering on his Georgia Bulldogs football team, and traveling with his bride, Kayla.

Kyle Johnston

Attorney

Originally from Chicago, Kyle has been practicing law in the State of Georgia for over a decade. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Portuguese at Brigham Young University and his law degree from the University of Miami, graduating in 2007. At age 19, Kyle lived in Brazil for 2 years where he became fluent in Portuguese. During his time in Brazil, Kyle fell in love with the culture and people of Brazil. Because of this, he has extended his practice to better serve the Brazilian (and other Portuguese) speaking communities in Atlanta, and state-wide. He has a working knowledge of the Spanish language and is eager to achieve fluency to better serve the Hispanic community.

Kyle dedicates his practice to representing injured workers in the State of Georgia as well as clients who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents. Kyle’s intention from the outset of his career was to represent and fight for individuals who had been injured on the job or as the result of negligence by another party. In anticipation of this, Kyle made the strategic decision to spend the first five years of his practice representing the employers and insurance companies in work accident claims. Through that process, he gained valuable insight and understanding as to how the employers and the insurance company evaluate and defend claims. With that knowledge, Kyle can more effectively represent injured Georgians.

In his free time, Kyle enjoys mountain biking, fishing, photography, cheering on the Chicago Blackhawks and Cubs, and spending time with his wife and three young children.
