Trey H. Crawford: Attorney with Crawford, Wishnew & Lang PLLC
Attorney Awards


Trey Crawford is a trial lawyer with a focus on handling complex, often high-stakes business disputes throughout Texas and the United States. Trey has years of practical, first-hand trial experience with complex commercial cases on both sides of the docket, earning a reputation for being client-oriented, consummately well-prepared, practical and driven. Trey’s verdicts have been featured in National Law Journal’s “Big Money Wins”, Texas Lawyer’s “10 Million Dollar Club”, the Dallas Morning News, and the Dallas Business Journal.

Trey's clients range from individuals and small businesses to large privately held companies, domestic and foreign. His experience includes handling and trying lawsuits and arbitrations in federal and state courts throughout the country involving a variety of industries and disputes, such as:

-Aviation and aerospace

-Breach of contract, UCC, breach of warranties

-Breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, and tortious interference

-Trust, estate and fiduciary litigation

-Banking and finance

-Energy, mineral interests, alternative sources

-Business and securities fraud

-Shareholder and partnership disputes

-Theft of trade secrets and intellectual property

-Real estate and construction disputes

-Catastrophic personal injury

While each case is unique, his approach is consistent: assess, prioritize and act. His methodology is first to identify his client’s goals, prepare a comprehensive trial plan at the front-end of the dispute that strategically analyzes the most efficient and effective way of achieving his client’s goals, and then implement the trial plan using a mastery of the rules of evidence and procedure.

"In short, I work with the client to outline a comprehensive game plan geared towards effectively and efficiently achieving the client’s goals, and then out-prepare the other side in implementing the game plan until the client’s goals are achieved."

Trey foresees an uptick in complex probate and trust disputes as Baby Boomers leave large estates to be managed and distributed in accordance with various fiduciary duties. In addition, he's closely tracking case law and public attitude toward issues related to the business aviation and aerospace industries.
