Trenton T. Roberts
Please tell us about yourself:
My name is Trent Roberts, and I am one of the Managing Partners at Roberts & Willie, PLLC. I grew up in Garland and Rowlett, attended Garland High School (Gig ’em Owls!), and you can usually find me on the courts coaching my kids’ (I have 7!) basketball teams or Jiu-Jitsu tournaments. I left a Wall Street Law firm, Latham & Watkins, years ago and eventually founded Roberts & Willie, PLLC, in 2015. We’ve had a blast!
A brief overview of your line of work:
Roberts & Willie, PLLC is a corporate law firm focusing primarily on negotiating contracts, such as Non-Disclosure Agreements, M&A transactions, and loan transactions, primarily on behalf of lenders and private equity clients. We also form companies and negotiate with private investors. We currently have 9 attorneys, some of which work in Houston and some are now, here in Richardson.
Why The Drawing Board?
The Drawing Board seemed to us (and confirmed now for a few months) to represent a great balance of factors. While we still have a large traditional office in Houston, I found that we spent an inordinate amount of time on logistics relating to coffee, water, bathrooms etc. in our Dallas office. When I ran across this place and actually looked inside, I felt like it got us all of the credibility we needed from a traditional office, while enhancing our efficiency significantly by allowing us to focus on actual legal work instead of office-upkeep. We’ve loved it so far and are excited about continuing to grow in this new place.

My dad always said (and I now say it to my own kids and sports team), “What’s the key to success? MOTIVATION!”
