Trent Shuping has represented railroaders and their families since 2010. He has seen first-hand how railroads attempt to cover up their own fault and blame their victims when accidents happen. Trent is a passionate advocate for uncovering the truth and obtaining all of the compensation Congress intended injured railroad workers to receive under the FELA.

This work has involved appearances in state and federal trial courts throughout Georgia, Tennessee and South Carolina. He also has extensive experience handling appeals. In 2019, Trent argued in front of the Georgia Supreme Court in a case that restored certain rights under the FELA that some courts had erroneously taken away from railroad workers for decades.

Trent’s favorite part of representing railroaders is getting to know his clients and their families and be a part of their journey when something horrific has happened. He is inspired by the resiliency and optimism he sees and honored by the trust placed in him by individuals and families faced with life altering challenges.

Trent grew up in Marietta, Georgia and attended the University of Georgia and the Duke University School of Law. He lives in Smyrna with his family and runs for lack of a better hobby.
