Trenton Rogers Garmon (born June 16, 1979), known as “Trent,” is an American trial lawyer, Catholic civil rights and injury lawyer, civil rights activist, public interest advocate, former D1 dual college athlete (football and baseball), and former Christian pastor/missionary. Garmon advocates for conservative Catholic ideology and is known for his representation of clients against government abuses and major corporations.
By Garmon’s own account, he was not a serious Christian until he underwent personal difficulty. He graduated near the top of his class from Troy University in 2003 and became engaged to a missionary following a trip to Ukraine. The engagement was suddenly broken off, and in the ensuing months of what he later described as disappointment and unemployment, he became a born-again Christian.
Garmon endured national political pressure and intense media scrutiny for his advocacy and defense of former Chief Justice Roy S. Moore in the 2017 US Senate Race 1, which was a Senate special election2. Garmon negated enabling of wrongful conduct while advocating for Moore, who denied the wrongful conduct. Garmon openly denounced the behavior as wrong, citing a polygraph policy he maintains for clients accused of sexual abuse, and asserting in an MSNBC interview that “if” the allegations were true, such an abuse of power of even one minor “was too many.” Garmon is best known for debunking the altered yearbook of Attorney Gloria Allred’s3 client, Beverly Young Nelson.4 Nelson later recanted acknowledging the legal assessment. 5
The polygraph examination of Roy S. Moore came under great scrutiny following Sacha Baron Cohen’s mockery of Moore using a programable “pedophilia detector,” for which Moore sued Baron for $95 million for defamation and fraud. Court records indicate Garmon also represented—with his then-partner J. Flint Liddon—restaurant mogul Cindy Brinker,6,7 philanthropologist and daughter of Norman Brinker,, the founder of Chili’s.
After the principle-affirming interview, Garmon did not represent Moore who, along with the Foundation for Moral Law, had been a client of his firm for seven (7) years in no less than five (5) cases. Donald Trump Jr., discontent with Roy Moore, took what appeared to be a cheap shot at Garmon, tweeting in celebration over his arrest for medical cannabis and driving under the influence. The Trump Jr. tweet was denounced by Newsweek as odd and disconnected given the initial support of Moore by Trump Sr. 8 Garmon was depicted on al.com9 as smiling in the mug shot during the arrest.
Garmon has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, CBN, Fox affiliates, and other stations as an attorney. He appeared as a global legal analysis on CBN, private counsel on CNN and MSNBC, and on “Ask a Lawyer Anything” regarding American jurisprudence. Garmon has also represented State Troopers, other Lawyers, a Tony Award winning actress collaterally, a professional athlete, politicians, and other notable individuals among the 3,000 other clients he directly consulted or represented.
As a college athlete at the United States Military Academy at West Point and later Troy University, Garmon participated in games that were televised on ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, CBS, and Fox Sports South. His college career was ended by an injury that forced him to have a second shoulder surgery, which was the fifth (5th) surgery during his college athletic career—leaving him to elect not to participate in his senior year.
Trent graduated from the United States Military Academy Prep,10 Beast Barracks at the United States Military Academy,11 Troy University,12 Birmingham School of Law (BSL),13 and Regent University.14 He delivered the closing remarks and prayer for the BSL Class of 2006 graduation ceremony. Trent clerked directly for Clay Hornsby with Morris, Haynes, and Hornsby, whose father, Sonny Hornsby, served as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court.
Garmon was offered scholarships based on his high school football career by several Division 1 universities and graduated magna cum laude from Troy University with a degree in business. He attended the Birmingham School of Law where he was awarded a Juris doctorate. He and a classmate, Christopher Word, Esquire, established a charter of the “Christian Legal Society”15 at the school, where they served as chaplain and president, respectively. Garmon competed on the law school’s first mock team. While attending Birmingham School of Law, Garmon also took courses at Birmingham Theological Seminary. He continued his theological studies at Regent University, which is the home of the Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN), founded by Dr. MG Pat Roberson.16
While a student at Regent University, Garmon faced much faculty scrutiny. On 31 October 2008—the memorial day of the Protestant Reformation—he and two other classmates wrote a letter they titled a “Call to Reaffirmation” to the president, Pat Robertson.17 The theme played off of the Protestant Reformation and the school’s recognized Statement of Faith. Some of the faculty considered it contentious because it questioned a publication written by the dean of the School of Divinity. One of the students, Rev. Clay Rushing, later became the school’s first student to obtain a Master of Theology while suffering through cerebral palsy. The letter called into question the teaching that disabilities would be retained in heaven, which Garmon and Rushing were very passionate about, especially considering the “healing” ministry of Dr. Robertson and the 700 Club.18
He and the other students alleged that any faculty member maintaining positions outside the Statement of Faith regarding healing, with CBN19 being a charismatically rooted television network, that raising over $240 million20 per year based upon teachings of God’s healing powers, among other things, was, in fact, inappropriate and likely unethical.
The Reaffirmation letter caused a great pushback by faculty, as it included a procedural promise to follow up with a letter to the Association of Theological Schools,21 the school’s accreditation board, and eventually led to the Dean’s resignation.
Athletic & Military Career
High School Football Career
After starting all four (4) years on his high school football team, Garmon was selected to play for the Alabama team in the state’s prestigious Alabama v. Mississippi High School All-Star Game.22 He started as the right tackle in that All-Star Game and was named as a Pigskin High School All American. Garmon was voted by coaches and by the press for his division’s Alabama All-State Team23 for two years in a row. He was also voted by the al.com newspaper onto the Super All-State Team for Alabama as a junior and senior, placing him in the top five (5) offensive linemen for all divisions in 1996 and 1997.
Despite being a nationally recognized high school football prospect, Garmon was only offered scholarships from the University of Arkansas24 by Danny Ford, Southern Mississippi University25 by Tyrone Nix, and West Point by Coach Bob Sutton. Not having focused his high school years upon studies and depending heavily upon his test scores and athletic skills, Garmon was specially appointed to the United States Military Academy by Vice President Al Gore.26 Lieutenant General Daniel W. Christman,27 the then-Superintendent, is said to have convinced Garmon to attend, having surprisingly been invited as the top of that year’s recruiting class to the Sup’s Table to dine at Washington Hall, the Cadet Mess Hall, during his first campus visit. In speaking engagements, Garmon claims family friend Freddie Kitchens, Sr., the father of Freddie Kitchens, Jr.,28 taught him how to hit a baseball and drive block a defender since he had not excelled much as an athlete in his younger years.
Garmon accepted an appointment to West Point and was on the football team that played in the legendary 100th Army-Navy29 game featured on CBS. He dressed along with three (3) other Plebes but stood on the sidelines and did not take a snap in that game. He played first base on the USMAPS 1999 team, competing against Yale, Coast Guard Academy, and Nassau College, among others, while a dual college athlete. He saw playing time as a freshman at The Academy30 in two (2) division 1A football games and while competing against East Carolina,31 logged a touchdown assisted “chop block” at a crucial time in the game. Having competed in college baseball while within the Army’s32 system, he was considered a dual-sport college athlete. During his time at West Point, Garmon would develop several unique friendships, which included Mike Schwartz, son of Brigadier General Thomas Schwartz,33 renowned army boxer Boyd Melson, and Richard Turner, who became the First Cadet of the Class of 2003 and was a personal guard for President Donald Trump.34
Within months of becoming a “Recognized Cadet”35 at the Academy, Garmon transferred in 1999 to Troy State University and played on the first Division 1A team under Coach Larry Blakeney. Troy participated in and won the Southland Conference36 Championship while Division 1AA. While at Troy University,37 Garmon started on their college football team as the center.38 He was featured as one (1) of seven (7) other Troy players, including Osi Umenyiora,39 on the team’s 2002 Schedule Poster. The Dothan Eagle40 newspaper for the Troy Spring Football Game described Garmon in an expose article as “An Army of One,” which was printed in April 2001. The name of the school changed to Troy University during his tenure. Then-Head Coach Blakeney41 is known for his time as a star quarterback for Auburn University.42
Blakeney is credited with developing the Troy Football program from a marginal Division II to Division IAA program and eventually to a nationally recognized Division 1A program. Garmon reports having a father-son-like relationship from his brief time at Troy, even having dated one of the coach’s daughters. During the first year as a Division 1A program, Troy competed against Nebraska 43, Maryland, Miami, Mississippi State, and other established programs. Troy defeated Mississippi State44 on October 13, 200145 in one of its first major Division 1A wins, which was the state homecoming game. This victory is believed to have led to the firing of then-head coach Jackie Sherril.46
In 2001, Troy was the only team in the nation to have played against both Miami and Nebraska,47 which competed in the national championship. Garmon was interviewed by Mike Goodson, a local sports journalist, about the Miami v. Nebraska game and predicted the winning team within one score. The University of Miami48 team of 2001 is said to be the “Team of the Century.”49 That team was composed of Ken Dorsey50, Ed Reed,51 Clinton Portis,52 Jeremy Shockey,53 Jerome McDougle, and ESPN analyst Jonathan Vilma.54 Nebraska was highly loaded as well with notable athletes that year, which included the Heisman Trophy winner, Eric Crouch.55 Thus, Garmon played on the team with over a dozen athletes who ended up competing professionally in the NFL. The teams he participated in were aired live on CBS, ESPN, ESPN2, and several area-wide television outlets. Garmon, among other athletes, was interviewed by ESPN for a single series feature on Troy University becoming a D1 level college football program.
Before going to Troy, Trent spent two years in the system of West Point having completed their basic training or “Beast Barracks”56 and playing on the team that competed in the 100th Army-Navy football game. Garmon received an appointment from former Vice President Al Gore to attend the Academy. He completed training to include rappelling, road marching 3, 5, 7, and 15 miles, close combat, and weapons training, among others.
After being challenged by his squad leader during the gas chamber portion of his basic training at West Point, Trent successfully recited “The Corp” after removing his gas mask in the midst of fuming tear gas to earn his squad a coveted pizza party. Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Michael Duran was on the same squad and was a corroborating witness to the challenge. Garmon was one of only two freshmen or “plebe” cadets to routinely travel with the army’s Division IA football team, which included games at Tulane, Appalachian State, Air Force Academy, South Florida, and two other Division IA programs. He became a recognized cadet of “The Corp” in 2000 with his class, the Protectors of the Free. Garmon competed in three (3) games for the army in the 1999 season.
Garmon’s statistics in the 2001 Troy University football season as the team’s Center include gaining a first down each and every time there was one (1) yard or less when it was third or fourth down. According to statisticians, the team had only one (1) stop when a yard or less was needed, during which Garmon was not in the game.
The Troy media guide that year touted Garmon as the strongest player on the offense, while Davern Williams57 was held out as the strongest defensive player on the team. While at Troy, Garmon competed with some of the most notable athletes to have ever played the game, including Osi Umenyiora58 and Lawrence Tynes59.
Trenton Garmon’s first major television interview was with ESPN60 in 2001, when he and three other players were interviewed regarding that season, but most of the interview was cut. Garmon played televised games on CBS, Sports South, ESPN2, and area networks. Despite the invitation to the team’s NFL try-out, Garmon declined the opportunity likely due to his extensive number of injuries. Eventually, injuries plagued the end of his college football career, requiring five (5) surgeries and causing him to be on the disabled list during the last game of the 2001 season. That tryout is particularly known in Troy’s football history since Demontray Carter61—the Freshman Team All-SEC transfer from Auburn62 and multiple-year League MVP63—also declined despite being a certain candidate for a contract offer according to expert agents.64 65 66 Other players, including Osi Umenyiora, Matt Allen, Lawrence Tynes, and Davern Williams, participated in the NFL tryout and were signed to teams.
Early Legal Career
Trent law clerked for his father in his teens. At the age of seventeen (17), he wrote his first successful court filing, which was a Response to Motion for Summary Judgment, along with the supporting brief. While a sophomore in college, Trent wrote a brief to the Court of Civil Appeals, which overturned a Circuit Court judge’s improper ruling. The law was eventually changed in part to reflect the opinions67 expressed in Trent’s brief some seven (7) years prior. As of summer 2020, Garmon had handled over 3,000 client files and has tried well over 100 cases to verdict and judgment. He has worked on cases with settlements and recoveries totaling more than $75 million.
Garmon participated in civil rights activism from the onset of his legal career and served as counsel to many demonstrators and activists in civil rights movements. He supported and was depicted and pictured in the choir loft as the only Caucasian person publicly showing support for the black community at the iconic 16th Street Baptist Church during Bill Cosby’s circuit speaking engagement, for which Garmon received criticism.
Alabama’s HB56 and the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice – Public Interests and Civil Rights Advocacy for Immigrants
At the request of the Alabama Coalition for Immigrant Justice and Attorney Myron Allenstein, Garmon spoke on the floor of the Alabama House of Representatives in what is known as the “Star Wars Room.” On April 12, 2012, Garmon expressed support of SB4, which was the Bill to Repeal HB56.efn_note]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alabama_HB_56[/efn_note] 68 The Bill to Repeal was part of a “Love Thy Neighbor” statewide agenda of Christian leadership against the state immigration law. The controversial HB56 bill had passed in June 2011 and quickly came under constitutional scrutiny by two federal filings and in media coverage nationwide. Proposals were made for amendments or changes to the law almost immediately. Garmon warned that the bill was unconstitutional in many regards and found the “aiding and abetting” provision, which made it a crime for an Alabamian to even give an undocumented immigrant a ride, particularly distasteful, illegal, and overreaching. Garmon, speaking on behalf of undocumented aliens and as part of statewide “Love Thy Neighbor” public interest for Alabamians, said he believed the law unfairly conflated federal immigration issues with state criminal law and recommended the entire bill, then passed into law, be set aside. He warned that continued legal challenges would cost the state unnecessary expenses and that the law provided little to no appreciable benefit.
New Women All Women and the Pro-Life Movement
Garmon represented the group of pro-life defendants sued by New Women All Women, a former abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, which included representing Jim Pinto, Jeff White, and Terry Genensmer. Through Garmon and that team’s efforts, the clinic was eventually closed. That clinic is most notable for being the facility bombed by Eric Rudolph in or around January 1998.69
Alliance Defending Freedom
In 2012, Garmon was admitted to the Alliance Defending70 Freedom’s Honor Corp after receiving training and having completed over four hundred fifty (450) hours of pro bono legal service to the Christian poor, oppressed, and those whose First Amendment rights had been infringed upon.71
Holy Water Case
Garmon also tried the case of Joyce Fecteau,72 an accused pro-life activist who was arrested at seventy-three (73) years old for having spayed “holy water” on the smoke being emitted from a cauldron used by abortion clinic workers and volunteers to distract from sidewalk counseling, so Garmon argued. Following a two (2)-day trial, Judge Cybil Cleveland’s Court found Fecteau “not guilty” on both counts.73 74The Court ruled in April of 2013, in what came to be known as the “holy water case,”75 that Joyce Fecteau did not break any laws in spraying the liquid. When Judge Cybil Cleveland told the courtroom full of people that Fecteau was not guilty, her backers broke into applause, and some of them broke into tears.76 Garmon declined post-verdict interviews.
International Civil Rights Activism
Martin Oloo,77 a well-known African attorney, and Trenton Garmon mobilized efforts within local Kenyan districts—namely in and around Mumias, Kenya—to ensure union-like policies were considered by the local city council. These efforts led Garmon to develop a friendship with another African civil rights leader, namely Marsat Obama-Onyango, who founded and operates the Mama Sarah Obama Children Foundation.78 Obama-Onyango is the half-sister of former President Barack Obama.79
Don Lemon Interview
In November 2017, Garmon became notable for referring to Don Lemon as “Don, take it easy, Lemon-Squeezy”80 during an interview. Garmon was defending the Foundation for Moral Law and Kayla Moore81 and claimed he had been invited by CNN to discuss topics involving the Foundation and not Moore’s allegations of sexual abuse, much of which was still unfolding. Garmon alleged he was lured into the interview based on false pretenses and had the call recorded, which was disclosed by law. The following night, Garmon spoke out for Roy Moore on MSNBC regarding the debunking of a yearbook signature and forged note, which was later acknowledged as accurate. Garmon always maintained the conduct was morally wrong if true.
Roy Moore, Kayla Moore, and The Foundation for Moral Law
Garmon served as personal counsel for seven (7) years for former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore,82 members of the Moore family, and the Foundation for Moral Law in various cases and matters.
Garmon was blistered in the media for administrative legal services rendered to Acton Bowen, who was later accused of sex crimes involving minors. Garmon immediately distanced himself, resigning and denouncing any such behavior, along with another Board Member.83
Bowen eventually pled guilty to sex crimes involving minors.
While actively practicing civil rights law and having no less than eight (8) departments sued, Garmon considered himself to have been framed by two (2) of the departments. He claims this led to the most intimate breach of his civil rights because he was forced away from his children, other family, and friends as an “inmate” of a “broken system.” Garmon was incarcerated for twelve (12) days and was forced to serve four (4) of them in an open bay video-monitored maximum-security facility based on a technical bond revocation.
Garmon attributes this time to becoming truly aware of the widespread injustice of mass incarceration and breaches of human dignity due to detainees housed in subhuman conditions. He alleged that the charges against him were false and he was framed. He practiced law from jail, using their messaging system and his paralegal’s freedom to settle a case, generate letters, and continue the general legal workflow of his practice at the time.
He was found “Not Guilty” on Holy Wednesday and released, yet he considers the situation to have been traumatizing. That week, he reported watching Notre Dame burn from behind bars, and he was confirmed as a Catholic that Sunday, April 20, 2019, at St. James in Gadsden, Alabama.
While held as an inmate, Garmon alleges his life was threatened three (3) times, incidents which he considered as real threats that were totally unprovoked. This includes a threat by another inmate in the maximum-security open bay, a death threat by an inmate in the video-projected courtroom, and a general death threat to the entire “pod” by a guard who said, “One m*ther f*cker will die if something breaks out, and who do you think they will believe—us guards or you inmates?”
Garmon documented two (2) credible witness names, an army veteran and a chef from the Plaza Hotel—both of whom were detainees at the time—to establish the death threat made by the guard. This experience caused Garmon to grow more passionate about civil rights, saying he fully believes the modern detention center systematically has many “slave-like,” cruel and unusual conditions.
After serving almost three (3) years as a pastor, he found himself enslaved to the system and being transported in full shackles like an animal from maximum security in a caged inmate transport unit based on a non-violent DUI charge. The jury found him “Not Guilty” on all charges. Garmon subsequently brought a two-million-dollar claim against the Sheriff’s Department in Pinellas County, alleging civil rights breaches, false arrest, destruction of evidence, and perjury by the deputies, all of which is documented and on the record.
Garmon issued a press release after what he claimed was a framed arrest and charge for driving under the influence and unlawful possession of marijuana (sic). Per the police report, al.com reported a two-part crash, yet Garmon denied causing any crash and alleged a prescription for cannabis for chronic pain following his injuries from football and military training. The police report, based on a city politician’s statement, alleged that Garmon’s vehicle had struck a freightliner truck twice, which was parked on Randall Street, and allegedly, Garmon “punched” the vehicle in anger.
Garmon challenged the allegations and released a statement and pictures disputing the same. The legal process later forced the release of a Ring doorbell video, which depicts the vehicle Garmon was driving making a safe three (3)-point turn, neither striking nor punching the truck as alleged. It was later discovered that the politician and arresting officer knew one another, having worked “several times” together on “city business.” Garmon initiated litigation against the Department.
Garmon’s parents, Leon and Harriet Garmon, were longtime “yellow dog” Democrats active directly and indirectly with their local and state. Milford Leon Garmon served as campaign manager for Democratic Alabama Supreme Court84 Chief Justice Sonny Hornsby. Leon Garmon was a Major in the United States Army having served as a Combat Engineer with a Special Forces Unit in the Vietnam War. Garmon senior is anticipated during several firefights to be lawfully forced to participate in utilizing deadly force upon several Vietcong. Upon return to the United States, Garmon Sr. became a military recruiter for the Academy at West Point and later attorney. Despite being known for representing globally recognized Republican Judge Roy Moore, Garmon’s firm maintains as a civil rights advisor Marsat Obama-Onyango, a sibling of former Democratic President Barack Obama. Trenton Garmon and Obama-Onyango met in Africa at the home of “Momma Sarah,” one of the wives of his grandfather. Based on the initial trip, Garmon was later requested to be a part of “birther”85 litigation, which sought injunctive relief to remove Barack Obama from the ticket via a filing in the Madison County Circuit Court in Alabama before the 2012 presidential election,86 which Garmon declined. Garmon and Obama-Onyango maintained a “digital pen pal” relationship and are jointly committed to international human and civil rights.
Garmon’s mother, Harriet Rogers Bolton Garmon, based family history and on genealogy research has linked the family as descendants of Thomas Rogers. Thomas Rogers was a passenger on the Mayflower and signer of the Mayflower Compact being the 18th name listed albeit the order of signing is unknown 87 88.
Thomas Rogers was a Leiden Separatist who traveled in 1620 with his eldest son Joseph as passengers on the historic voyage of the Pilgrim ship Mayflower. Thomas Rogers was a signatory to the Mayflower Compact, but perished in the winter of 1620/21 89.
International Philanthropy & Civil Rights Activism
During a medical mission trip where Garmon provided administrative support and consulting to a Christian mission hospital in Rajahmundry, India, which provides standardized medicine to the indigent, Garmon briefly consulted in an isolated meeting with P. Chidambaram90 at the world-renowned Novotel Hotel and Convention Center91 during an insurance convention at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (HYD).92 Chidambaram was serving at the time as the minister of finance (or simply, finance minister), which is the head of the Ministry of Finance of the Government of India. One of the senior-most offices in the Union Cabinet, the finance minister is responsible for the fiscal policy of the government.93
Despite much opposition by those who deny the existence of systemic injustices, Garmon from the onset of the Black Lives Matter movement has continuously stood with the core principles and its leaders. This includes public demonstrations in St. Petersburg, Florida, Birmingham, Alabama, Gainesville, Florida and Huntsville, Alabama. Keith Young of Black Lives Matter – Huntsville, Marty Schelper of the Alabama Cannabis Coalition and Trenton Garmon were literally gathered at a Freedom Assembly with multiple members of the press the very moment the Derek Chavin verdict was announced. Despite the potential of technical overcharging, Garmon stood resolved with the movement in support of the conviction and against Police Brutality. Keith Young announced the verdict to the Press and Garmon followed with public support in what he told Ethan Fitzgerald, Journalist for WHNT19, was “unnatural” treatment and clear “violations of the Constitution”. Garmon reiterated his belief that “mass incarceration is modern slavery” citing the statistic that America incarcerates at 500% the global average and expressing that both Police Brutality and Mass Incarceration are systematic problems. He also expressed concern over the “2.2 million detainees held in substandard and inhumane conditions many times.”94
General Legal Career
Garmon’s legal experience includes having handled over 3,500 legal files. He also forced a bench or jury verdict in one hundred (100) cases, of which only three (3) were lost. Two clients went against his legal advice, an agreement Trent required to be signed in writing, and the other committed perjury.
He represented a medical malpractice victim’s family, collecting two million dollars in a case the defense called meritless. Garmon has been retained as an expert witness for legal actions regarding professional breaches. His team has sued sheriffs, Division 1 universities, Fortune 500 corporations, major television stations, and powerful individuals for his clients who were damaged and/or harmed.
Trent has made exclusive appearances on CNN and MSNBC and appeared on global and local television, including CBN, Fox, and others. He has worked on cases with the American Center for Law and Justice, founded by Jay Sekulow,95 specifically with Attorney Michael Henderson, and made television appearances on local television, including Law Call, the Attorney’s, and Fox 6 On Your Side with Rhonda Robinson. Garmon has also been considered to have trustworthy and noble services as retained paid counsel by the prestigious national public interest foundation, The Thomas More Society.96 He also represented the Home School Legal Defense Association.
Garmon served administratively on many cases, achieving a $20-million and $5-million verdict, as well as a $40-million settlement. He has won hearings and trials at every level from municipal court, administrative hearings, circuit court trials, and federal court cases. He has represented a New York Timesbest-selling author, service members, a mining mogul, reality show star, a Tony Award winning actress collaterally, Restaurant Empress, a state Supreme Court Chief Justice, a city council member, the disabled, the falsely accused, the families of those tragically killed, the unborn, and countless others. From catastrophic injury cases, wrongful death cases, and civil rights breaches to those who were injured in a wreck or affected by a dangerous product, Trent has and continues to battle for people in need of help.
Garmon is a practicing Catholic and married to, but legally separated from, Holly Lastovica Garmon, and they have five (5) children. He was a evangelical evangelist and pastor for approximately ten (10) year roles in which he served while practicing law. He and his wife “planted” a non-denominal church, Church of the Coast, which they co-pastored for approximately three (3) years. The organization averaged eighty-one (81) in attendance which exceeded the national average of fifty-four (54) given the age of the organization. The organizaion had a registry of over three hundred (300) and fed over three thousand (3,000) in a day in the Tampa Bay area during its operations. Garmon was removed by a Board Member over allegations of substance abuse regarding wine which he disputed as justifiable. Garmon claims to be distantly related to Fred Rogers,97 the Mr. Rogers, and Harold Ray Ragsdale, a comedian known as Ray Stevens.98 Garmon and Coach Josh Niblett are cousins via Garmon’s mother, Harriett Bolton Garmon, and Niblett’s father, Jonnie Niblett. 99 100 101 Garmon is the owner of Gfile.legal (https://gfile.legal), which is a digital platform for lawyers and is a civil rights e-complaint company. He is the host of Trenton Garmon Live on iHeartRadio, which is a talk show featured on 105.5 FM, 960 AM and converted into a PodCast.
