Ellis H. Marshall, III “Trey” will officially announce his candidacy for General Sessions Judge, Division II at his campaign kick-off Thursday, Jan. 30 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Education Building at the Wilson County Fairgrounds. Everyone is welcome to attend and show their support for Trey.
Trey began his interest in law as a young boy at the Tennessee Law Enforcement Training Academy. His father, Ellis Marshall, Jr. was an instructor at the Academy, and Trey spent many days there with the officers. “My time as a youth and an employee of the Academy gave me a great respect for the people who put their lives on the line every day to protect us,” said Trey.
A graduate of the University of Tennessee at Martin and the Cecil C. Humphrey’s School of Law at the University of Memphis, he is a highly respected attorney in private practice in Wilson County and across Middle Tennessee.
With over ten years practicing in various Criminal Courts, Trey has the experience needed to continue the tradition of excellence in this court. He will follow the letter of the law, treat each person with respect, and ensure firm yet fair justice.
Marshall is a long time resident of Wilson County, and he takes pride in supporting the community. He is a charter member of Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet, a member of the Mt. Juliet and Lebanon Chambers of Commerce, an active member of the Mt. Juliet Breakfast Rotary Club, a current member of the Leadership Wilson Class, and a member of the 15th Judicial Bar Association.
In addition to being active in the business community, Trey also coaches little league baseball, softball, and basketball. He enjoys reading to elementary classes and visiting the local senior citizens.
Trey’s wife, Jennifer Moore Marshall, is a Wilson County native. She teaches kindergarten at Stoner Creek Elementary and was recently named their Teacher of the Year. Trey and Jennifer have four children. They all attend school or day care at Stoner Creek.
“Trey is honest, fair, and values the residents of our community,” said Yancy Belcher, a Mount Juliet attorney and lifelong resident. “His knowledge and experience in the courtroom are attributes that will make him an excellent judge.”
