Trey Duck is a partner at Nix Patterson. Even before law school, Trey knew he wanted to represent people who had been wronged or injured and who needed a good lawyer to fight for them. He has dedicated his career to doing just that.
Trey began his practice working on the firm’s commercial litigation files and cut his teeth on high-stakes cases like class actions, False Claims Act whistleblower litigation, and securities fraud disputes. This is complex stuff that requires not only good trial and advocacy skills, but also fearlessness, fortitude, and a creative strategy. Trey quickly became a lead attorney on many complex cases and now also focuses much of his practice on catastrophic personal injury cases. Whether it’s a massive class action or a small personal injury matter, Trey treats every case with the same tenacity and attention.
Trey was also an early member of Nix Patterson’s oil & gas disputes practice. Trey has led and litigated dozens of oil & gas cases ranging from royalty underpayment class actions to complex breach-of-contract disputes.
Trey also has years of experience representing state agencies and whistleblowers across the nation in False Claims Act litigation involving healthcare, finance, banking fraud, and other subject matters.
Across all of these practice areas, Trey has tried cases to juries and judges in numerous states and regularly appears in state and federal courts and in arbitration forums around the country.
After growing up in East Texas, Trey attended Baylor University and is a third-generation Baylor graduate. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were all Baptist preachers. His mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother were all public school teachers. After college, Trey went on to Baylor Law School and, while there, was an active member in the school’s trial and appellate advocacy programs. He served on winning national teams in both moot court and mock trial competitions for Baylor. Trey is proud to be the first attorney in his family.
