July 26, 2012

Statement from Ms. Tracy Frick, Partner at FrickTrent, PLLC:

Charlotte, NC, Thursday July 26, 2012 -  It is with the deepest regret and great sadness that we mourn the untimely passing of our dear friend, partner and boss, Jeffrey Trent. Jeff was doing what he loved most - vacationing and experiencing new places and cultures around the world. He passed away in the Turks & Caicos Islands in the Caribbean on or about Monday July 23, 2012.

We are still unclear of the exact details of this occurrence and are actively working with the State Department in the regard, which is our only recourse in this situation. We have been unable to obtain any details from the local authorities in the Turks & Caicos, but we are hoping that the State Department will intervene and come to our assistance to answer the critical questions of the circumstances surrounding this tragic event, for ourselves and his family.

He was dearly loved by his immediate family, his many friends, clients and his FrickTrent, PLLC family, and will be sorely missed by everyone who had the privileged of knowing and working with him.

Jeffrey Paul Trent, was born and raised in the Commonwealth of Virginia and received his undergraduate degree from Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, VA and his Juris Doctor from Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem, NC.  Prior to opening FrickTrent, PLLC, Jeff was the senior attorney in the North Carolina office of Trey Inman & Associates, P.C. where he concentrated his  practice on residential and commercial real estate transactions.  Jeff was previously employed by Morgan Stanley Dean Witter & Co. as an Commercial Account Manger as well as an officer of MountainWest Financial Bank located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

He was instrumental in the successful establishment of our firm FrickTrent, PLLC, and his legacy and contribution to the firm, will be felt for many years to come. Even though we at FrickTrent, PLLC are all devastated by his passing, we know that Jeff would have definitely wanted us to continue doing what we do best for our clients. So to honor him in this way, we will continue to serve all our clients needs, even though our hearts are breaking.

Thank you for respecting our grief at this time and please direct all media queries to our PR & Media Representative, Dianne Stewart at BSA PR
