The Trevor Law Group was a three-member Beverly Hills law firm notable in California and nationally for their heavy-handed tort law abuse. In 2002, it was alleged that they engaged in a form of extortion by threatening to sue thousands of businesses for violating a now defunct provision of the Business & Professions Code, then offering to "settle" for a few thousand dollars apiece.[1] They were investigated for this action and three principals of the firm were recommended for disbarment. They eventually gave up being lawyers.[2]

The Trevor lawyers appear to have gone further than many other law firms accused of similar abuses. The Group is now often cited in discussions of tort law abuse.
