Franklin H. “Trey” Turner III

ColumbiaShareholder

Trey Turner concentrates his practice in the areas of construction defect litigation and products liability. His years of experience have been a deep-dive into the technical details that can make or break a case.

Trey has represented general contractors and subcontractors in multi-million dollar HOA cases as well as severe injury claims due to industrial products. He has represented multiple defendants in several Contractor Controlled Insurance Programs (CCIPs).  Working closely with carriers, the insured, and carefully vetted experts, he has handled cases from inception to trial, including litigation at the appellate level. Nationally, Trey served as chair of a Standing Committee of the ABA Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Section (TIPS) — the Torts Products, General Liability and Consumer Law committee. He recently presented at the CLM (Claims and Litigation Management) 2019 Annual Conference in Orlando on construction issues relating to wood-frame buildings.
