I still haven't played it (so I probably shouldn't even be commenting, but my excitement for the game is making me feel the need to haha) but I've always felt like each game is only a small window into the lives of these characters for the time period the games take place in (except for the GK games which take place within 1 month). So I would just assume that they met at some point offscreen, especially since each new "part" of a case tends to being anywhere from around 11:00 AM to like 3:00 PM, leading to at least 2 hours of offscreen discussion time going on. It is a bit lazy, but then again I haven't played it yet so I will have to wait to see what I actually think about it when I do.
Seeing how the cases themselves are focused on the cases at hand and not the characters' personal relationships, I can understand why Athena and Trucy meeting at one point won't be described in detail, at least not any time soon. By any chance there's a future game that features Phoenix Wright abroad in a completely different legal system, that's the best place to bring the point back up. I would be psyched (harhar, pun) to know about such a game, but I doubt it'd be something so close to our present.
Besides, the games have always been pretty scattered in timeline, and introductions go by really fast. The next time we, the players, see a character, it's been several months between cases.

I really enjoyed Dual Destinies for what it gave me. Dissapointed at length, but that could just be me.
A couple of questions:
Do you mean that it was too short, or too long?
Around how long is it? Is it comparable to another AA game?
I've heard there's some weird connection between Case 4 and 5. Without giving away any spoilers, are either of those shorter than the average full case?
The gameplay is around the length of previous titles, but I do agree that the story is a bit more linear than usual. However, given the complexity of the mysteries, drifting off further from what optional text is already present could potentially drag out the cases, rather than bring further interest.
As for case 4 & 5, the two are very closely associated. You could say they're also pretty short. (None of the cases in this game, including DLC, go beyond 2 days of investigations.)
