Trevin B. Rogers
Trevin is part of Baker Newby’s solicitor’s department, acting primarily for businesses and business people by providing practical legal advice in a variety of areas.
“I really enjoy all aspects of business (including my own). Acting for other businesses and business owners gives me the opportunity to learn about, and appreciate, how their business operates and what issues they might face. My goal, and what motivates me most, is being part of my client’s “team” and so being able to provide guidance and assistance wherever I can to help make their business a success.”
Trevin received his Juris Doctorate from the University of British Columbia Law School in 1988. After practising with a larger firm in Vancouver, Trevin joined Baker Newby in 1992 and became a partner in 1995. Trevin is also actively involved in the overall management of Baker Newby, having joined Baker Newby’s management team in 2005.
Trevin also appreciates that the tremendous success of Baker Newby is in large part due to the great communities and clients whom we serve, and accordingly enjoys giving back to those communities. In addition to his involvement in a number of charitable and non-profit organizations, Trevin has coached youth basketball at a variety of levels, and is currently the assistant coach of the Sardis Secondary senior boys basketball team.
When not working or volunteering, Trevin still enjoys playing basketball as much as possible, and of course supporting his three children through university with the unrealistic hope that one day they may financially support him.
