G&S Welcomes Its Newest Associate, Thornton (“Trey”) S. McKinney III

G&S proudly welcomes Thornton (“Trey”) S. McKinney III as its newest associate attorney, having formally joined the firm in July 2020. Trey stood out among a number of viable candidates who applied for the associate position at G&S, and he has impressed his colleagues at the firm thus far with his ability to effectively and efficiently acclimate himself with a number of pending cases and clients throughout the D.C.-Maryland-Virginia area. In just a matter of months, Trey has assisted clients in a range of complex civil disputes relating to contracts, loans, debt collection, and insurance matters.

Before joining G&S, Trey most recently clerked for the Honorable Alexander Wright, Jr. on the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. While in law school, Trey also received two years of first-hand experience counseling small businesses through the Small Business & Community Equity Development Clinical Program at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Each of these prior positions, among others, will prove to be invaluable as Trey continues to represent and advocate for the firm’s clients.
