Trent Shelton joined Arnold & Itkin in 2020 and didn’t waste any time getting acclimated to the practice of law. The day after he became a licensed attorney, Trent was in the courtroom seeking justice for clients who had been seriously injured due to the actions of others.

"Once you hire Arnold & Itkin, your case becomes personal to us. We will NOT be outworked, outthought, or out prepared."



Growing up in a family of lawyers, Trent witnessed the impact they can have on the lives of others at an early age. He knows he is working for people that have nowhere else to turn, and he knows clients need to rebuild their lives after a devastating event. He never takes representing them lightly.

Trent grew up in the small East Texas town of Hughes Springs. He attended Oral Roberts University, where he studied business and played baseball—a sport he credits with teaching him many important life lessons. His time as an athlete found him appearing in two NCAA Division I regional tournaments.

After earning his undergraduate degree with honors from Oral Roberts University, Trent attended Baylor Law School. Here, he graduated Magna Cum Laude in the top 8 percent of his class. While studying law, Trent competed on Baylor’s national moot court team. He also served as an associate editor of the Baylor Law Review. His academic accomplishments include receiving the top grade in Texas Administrative Law and Practice Court III, one of the three courses in Baylor’s rigorous Practice Court program.

Trent’s practice focuses primarily on catastrophic personal injury, maritime and offshore cases, commercial vehicle cases, premises liability, and wrongful death. His mission is to be the strong advocate that clients need when they feel like recovery is impossible. At Arnold & Itkin, he’s proud to have this opportunity each day.

When Trent is not working, he enjoys spending time with his fiancé Tanner, being outdoors, and following anything that has to do with the Texas Longhorns.
